Miscellaneous Family Photos


Joseph and Lydia Spiess Neubauer's sons

The writing on the bottom says Emil, Christian, Karl

The back of the photo says FotoGraf, Nicolae P. Xanthopulo, Sulina

So this photo was taken in Romania before Christian & Karl came to America!


This photo also says FotoGraf, Nicolae P. Xanthopulo, Sulina,

but it is not marked on the front. It is possible one of them is Lydia Spiess Neubauer, 

writing to her brother Fred.


There is a German inscription on the back

Lieber Fred

Gottes Reichen Segen

Wuenschen wier dier

u Vamilia zum

 Jahre 1906



Dear Fred

God's rich blessing

we wish you and family

 for the year 1906


This one seems to be of the same era, but there are no inscriptions.

Does anyone recognize the uniform?

(*The German Spiesses think this may be Johann Spiess in a Hungarian Uniform)
