Durrenberger Family Photographs

We have been given access to many old photographs dating from 1880 to 1945 of the Durrenberger, Welter and Schon families.  These photos have been posted to a web album at Google's photo sharing site called Picassa.  

The photos are divided into two groups and can be seen at Google by clicking the following links.

1.) Photos of people that we have been able to identify (see below) and

2.) Photos of people that we have not identified.  (A Link to photos on Google Photos)

This is where we need your help.  Please look at the photos and if you can identify any of the people, send me, Sandy Gordon, an email with the photo number and the identication information.  

Below are some of the Identified photos.  By clicking a photo you can enlarge it or you can scroll through a slideshow of the photos.
