Wordless Wednesday ~ Joseph Handler family

Joseph and Lena Handler and their six children,
taken in Akron, Ohio, after May 1941 and before November 1942

Back row, left to right: Louis, Arthur, Alfred, Harry
Front row, left to right: Belle, Joseph, Lena, Margaret

Joseph's naturalization papers provide birth dates for the oldest four children (Arthur, Margaret, Belle, Alfred).

Alfred, Louis, and Harry served in World War II, which is how I am able to approximate the date of this photograph. (Note that Alfred wears a uniform; Louis is in a suit.)

Wordless Wednesday is a daily blogging prompt from Geneabloggers, the genealogy community's resource for blogging. It is used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors.

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting! This picture has been on the wall at my in-law's home for years and I've always loved it. I got a chance to put my Flip-Pal scanner to work earlier this month when we visited and got a nice scan of this and many other photos.
