These are some more pictures from my CD. Not for commercial use.







The following two are not exactly clear who is related to whom, but they are interesting enough that I posted them anyway.

Family with visiting aunt? Well, it's a great picture anyway. Eastern Europeans?

Hard work and simplicity

I love looking at these amazing pictures of the same family group, and trying to figure out who are brothers and sisters.

Wonderful character pictures of a lifetime of hard work and simplicity.




The pictures are from my CD that I mentioned in a recent post.

Nebraska families

Here are some links to some absolutely beautiful photos of larger families. I can't post the pictures as they are copyright, but they are worth clicking on the links! Most of them include a lot of family history too, which is wonderful! I wish I could make tiny thumbnails to give a taste of them but I don't know how.

Bernard Soester family

Charles Dallegge family

Carl Hickstein family

Clara Zeilinger family, four generations

Claus Martens and family

This is from the CD mentioned several posts ago.


Going from facial similarities, I believe many to most of these are siblings.

It's a photo of John Binkley, his wife, Mary Elizabeth Henson Binkley, and their family. Center back is Barney Rice Binkley. The 2 babies and the 2 young girls are John and Mary's grandchildren. This leaves me to count 7 siblings in this photo.

Rear: Debra, Judith, Dail
Front: Estella, Clarabel, Carl with Patricia




The following photo is from http://www.ancientfaces.com/research/photo/408160

This is the Milton & Lucinda Chapman family. I believe the interpretation of the writing on the back would be that the children's names are Myrtle (married name Cummings), William, Cyrus, & Oscar. The photo was taken in Britt, IA.

Click the pictures to see them bigger. These photos are from the Ancient Faces website, so as always when the photo is from there, if you would like more information, please go to the link and contact the contributor there. I do not have contact with them, nor do I know any more about the families, or research them.


The first picture is found at http://www.ancientfaces.com/research/photo/408519 This is the William Harvey McMichen family, including his mother Jane Armstrong McMichen, wife Sarah Caroline and 10 of their 11 children. According to the contributor to the Ancient Faces site, this should be their home in Georgia.




Here is the Gillespie family, from Ancient Faces website, at http://www.ancientfaces.com/research/photo/408509

For names see the photo itself, or go to the link.




This is the Longo family, from http://www.ancientfaces.com/research/photo/408346 The photo is not high quality so don't bother clicking on it.
They are:
Top row, from left to right: Nicola, Donata, Giuseppe, Angela, Giovanni, and Grazia
Second row, from left to right: Assunta, Vito, mother Francesca, father Rocco , and Vincenzo. The little boy with the father is Alfredo
Front: Palma, Cosimo

More unnamed families

More photos from my CD





The children above look kind of like a posed 1-room school group, but so many of them look VERY alike! The boys in overalls must be twins and a brother, and most of the others look so alike as to be siblings to them also.

Fabulous old-time video clip of family of 18

I just LOVE this! Through Google, I found a business who sells video clips to advertisers etc for big money, but you can see short previews. Here is a 70-second clip of the Peerbolte family.




"In 1929, the Peerbolte family of Illinois claimed the world record for the largest family of 16 children. "

This is just a thumbnail.

Click on the link below to go to the page where you can see the video clip.

Make sure you see the part where they get out of their "18-seater limousine" which would be a regular-sized car now, only it fits all 18 as no doubt they didn't have the seating regulations we have now. It looks like an optical illusion to see them all file out of it one by one!

Nitsche family with 8 of 15 children



This is the Nitsche family "with their first 8 children." They had 7 more after. For the source, and the names, see http://www.oocities.com/mcarthrs/Nitschejacobsen.htm

I noted that three of the 15 children died in infancy, and two of them were in the first eight born to this family. So the photo would really be of the oldest eight children rather than the first eight.

The other baby who died was a twin; his surviving twin lived until early adulthood. All the others married.

Having lost a baby boy at birth myself, I can really sympathize with the heartbreak of these losses, though I know my experience of it would have been very different in many other ways.

Podmore Family


From the Stables family history website, at: http://www.stableshistory.co.uk/darfield.htm
The picture above shows Charles and Mary Ann Podmore's (née Stables) family and was taken around 1901. The people shown are:
Back Row (Left-to-Right): Elizabeth Podmore, Charles Podmore, Ethel Podmore, James William Podmore, Betsy Miriam Podmore.
Middle Row (Left-to-Right): Lilian Podmore, Mary Ann Podmore (née Stables), John Henry Bernard Podmore, Florence Podmore, Charles Podmore.
Front Row (Left-to-Right): Doris Podmore (on knee), Edith Hilda Podmore (on floor).

Ethel, Elizabeth, James William and Charles Jnr were Mary Ann's step-children from Charles's previous marriage to Sarah Richardson Townend. The others were her own children.

Lobsinger Family



from http://www.tradersbend.com/lnl/Newsletters/LNLV1N3.html

Quote: "Luke William Lobsinger Family: Luke was one of the sons of Joseph L. Lobsinger who wasn't involved in the Lobsinger Foundry in Mildmay, Ontario. He left home in 1913 and moved to Lake Worth, FL., where he raised his family. Luke was an artist, house painter and interior decorator. Some of his murals are preserved today in homes and apartments in Lake Worth. Shown are, from left, Luke, Jr., Luke, Sr., Phillip A., Catherine, Margaret Ann, wife Mary Jane Ross, and John Ross. Barbara Jane had not yet arrived when this picture was taken."

Photos from a visitor

A visitor sent me some photos.

There is no family information whatsoever, and I don't know where the person got the photos.
