    Wapakoneta is Native American for "White Bones" and its most famous son was Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.

  2. Can you all get the information on his parents? He looks very familiar to a picture I have of a young man from my mom's side. But that picture doesn't have a name other than a photographer and in Ohio. These two and one more I have, like a little brother to the first one I have, are in the same type of frame/folder. Please let me know. Just yesterday I started into my mom's father's side and had to take a break for all the information and a lot of that information is from a branched off parts so I get to go all the way back again. And started into pictures that are mostly from my grandmother's side but some of them with no name look like they can be from my grandfather's side. And if you would like to message me about a site that if my grandfather's last name comes up, the other half of his last name origins have a whole compiled list all the way back to the Mayflower and all the way down the one side or possibly, just the ones who switched to Mormon (and didn't get back into contact with the ones who stayed Christian or other religions and stayed in Main and area early years instead of traveling, after they told them when they left not to contact them). Anyway, please let me know all you can about this photo as soon as you can. And maybe if you can give some tips for looking up photos and one real photo post card. Or maybe you can look at some and have some ideas. Thank you!!!! (Planning on doing a biography about my family and each family coming down to my parents, then bring my brothers and myself into the book. Any help is welcome. I have a lot of work ahead of me. Thanks! !!!
