  1. The picture from Goettingen really interests me. My grandfather (born in 1892) moved to Goettingen as a little boy and my father was born there in 1932. Their family name was Schulze. What’s also interesting is that the photographer’s name Leistner was my grandmother’s maiden name before she married my grandfather. Thanks for sharing this picture. Maybe our grandparents were friends?

  2. I found this photo quite interesting—the girls bear a strong resemblance to pictures of myself and pictures of my grandmother and her sister. In working on my family history I have discovered we have a strong German ancestry much to my surprise.
