Let me introduce myself...my name is Barbara Jean Wellman Buchner
I am a descendant of Levi Coen.
Levi Coen (Great Great Great Grandfather)
William Gatton Coen (Great Great Grandfather)
Lydia Armettie Coen Andrews (Great Grandmother)
Esther Ellen Andrews Wellman (Grandmother)
Eldon Vern Wellman (Father)
Barbara Jean Wellman Buchner (me)
My Dad (Eldon Wellman) has several old photo albums that the pictures have fallen out of photo albums. Some have loose pictures or pictures that are permanently glued to the paper. I’m trying to redo the scrapbooks before any other pictures fall out or get lost along the way. Some pictures were cut to fit into the books, so we have only half the info.
It’s quite a project. But I want to get the pictures labeled while dad is here and can journal information about most of the pictures and before more family members are gone and we don’t have them to ask.
In the course of organizing some old family photos so I can put them in my family history book I have come across several pictures that are not labeled and he does not remember who these individuals are. I am wondering if I could send pictures to you via email with the hopes that someone would be able to recognize family members and help me identify the pictures. Also I could learn alittle bit more about the Coen Family for my Family History Scrapbook. I do not know what side of the family these individuals are on (my mom's - Mallery, Bergh, Ruedebusch, Lloyd or my dad’s - Wellman, Coen, Andrews) or if they even are family members- maybe just friends. Also if anyone knows the around what year the pictures were taken & the occasion. I’m trying to get the pictures labeled so that they might mean something to someone later on instead of a box of pictures that I inherited that we don’t know who the people are.
Hoping someone can help me with my unidentified photos & family history project.
Thank you for your time and your consideration.
Have a wonderful day.
