Because of my interest in family history, a lot of old family photos have come into my possession. Some have identifications written on them, but there are many with no clue at all. About some, I have my suspicions. I study them, searching for clues or family resemblances. I ask around, but most of the people who would know for sure are gone now. Once in awhile I get lucky.
I hope to get lucky with the posting of The Unidentified!, a slideshow of old family photos I haven't been able to identify. It's possible someone else has pictures of these same people or places, and maybe theirs are identified. I'll add more images to this slideshow as time permits.
Localities which may be affiliated with these photos include, but are not limited to, western Pennsylvania (Mercer, Slippery Rock), Detroit, Minnesota (Winona), Wisconsin (Sheboygan County et al), Illinois (Chicago, Winnebago, et al), and Omaha.
Surnames which may be affiliated with these photos include, but are not limited to, Efner (Effner, Efnor), Pettis, Sedgwick, Kerr, Carroll, Schulte, Hauer, and Wolfschlager (Wolfschlaeger, Wolfslayer).
If you can help identify any of these photos, please use the Comments feature at the bottom of this post to contact me. Include your email address for a personal response. Any comment containing an email address or other personal contact information will not be published to the blog.
