Photos for Identification - Can You Identify These People?

doteasy.com - free web hosting. Free hosting with no banners.

Got Mennonite family photos that you can't identify? Maybe you know the decade or place that they were taken, but there's one mysterious person who you just can't identify. Why not send us a scan (queries at mennonitehistory.org). We'll place it here and advise the MHSA e-list that it's here.

You'll immediately have a whole host of like-minded persons who just might be able to help out with a critical detail that starts you on the path of fact.

Check out our Success Stories!

Another set of Mennonite images that need identification help can be found at the Mennonite Church USA Archives "unidentified" selection.

If you can identify anyone in these photos contact both the submitter and

Judith Rempel (rempel at shaw.ca)
Context:
I've labeled this Wilhelm Rempel (b 1840 Osterwick), but am not terribly certain it's correct (GRANDMA #186597) - if that is correct, he and I are not related. I don't even know where I got the photograph. What I have is a contemporary copy (printed in B/W on Kodak paper).

Does anyone have a better idea or a claim to the image?

Karin Bock (karinb at sasktel.net)
Context:
Karin's exhausted family's help in identifying the people in the following nine photos. Her mother was born Katharina (Tina) Braun, to Helena (nee Martens). Katharina married Gerhard G. Bock (whose mother was Susanna Dueck). Susanna was widowed before immigrating to Canada and had a second marriage here to Jacob Rempel - so the photos that are shown here may be relatives of that branch.

Other sunames in the linage are Wiens, Redekop, and Klassen.

Any help is appreciated.

Context:
Photographs 2009.016 and 2009.017 are from the same place.
This photo has an inscription on the back (click on reverse).

Konstantin doesn't don't know who the photographed people are, but thinks they may be related to Aganetha Tjart (G #896916), Aganetha's husband Peter Loewen, or to her second husband David Koerber.

Aganetha Tjart (1881-1946) was daughter of Jacob Johann Tjart (1852-1918) and Elisabeth Hamm (1852-?).

Context:
Konstantin's grandfather wrote on the back of this photo: "Alternative service, Peter Loewen on extreme right". The others are unknown. Peter (1881-1922) was married to Aganetha Tjart.

When and where might Peter Loewen have done his alternative service.

Does anyone know who the standing m en are? Konstan thinks the man standing on the right may be the same as in photo 2009.002 below.
