The Saturday Scan

williamWetzel_GGF

This  handsome young man is my great grandfather William Wetzel. He was born in 1881 and died a few months before I was born in 1967. This photo was taken in approx 1902-05.

William married  Anna Klotz, whose scans I have already posted, around 1905. They had  four children. He was a printer by trade and operated his own shop in Elm Grove for many years and then worked for other printing firms in the area.

    I just love old family photos like this. Thanks for sharing. I have a bunch of old photos I need to get scanned in, I just need to make the time to do it – easier said than done.

    Holy crap – that photo is over 100 years old? That scan is fantastic!
