This is the Village of Orcenico Superiore, Zoppola in the Province of Pordenone, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, in northeastern Italy where our beloved father, Angelo Eugenio, was born on August 9, 1903. His two brothers, Luigi and Attilio (Attilio died at the age of 14 of the Spanish influenza during WWI.) were also born here. The arrow in the lower right-hand corner shows the street on which is the residence where they were born.

DIETZ CASTLE, Diez, Germany in the Lahn River Valley, a few hours from Frankfurt. (pronounced "Deets"). My paternal ancestors belonged to the House of Dietz-Nassau & we do have some notable figures as relatives." "House of Dietz-Nassau" I think may be a mistaken naming of the "HOUSE OF ORANGE-NASSAU" to which the Dietz's belong... I have not seen any references to "Dietz-Nassau" but I may be wrong!

This touching photo was taken by Joe Crachiola in 1973 in the Detroit suburbs. When Joe views this image he says "Every time I look at that picture I wonder, ‘When does that become an issue for us, when do we lose touch with that innocence and that ability to just accept one another for who we are without making judgments based on ethnicity or race?’” This image gathered a lot of popularity on the internet in 2013.

Scheffler Family Photo Labeled "East Pittsburg, PA": This is one of a series of photographs in an album that I inherited from my great-aunt, Edna Lucille Fuller Johnson (1903 - 1988.) I believe the photos were taken by her father, Frederick L. Fuller (1871 – c.1915.) As Mr. Fuller died when she was still a child, I have very few clues to his life. Most of the photos are of rivers in New Jersey and other states. I think his interest in rivers related to hydro-electric plants that he may have helped to establish. There are also family photos that probably record the members of his grandfather's household prior to 1903. The Scheffler family lived on Jasper Street, Paterson, New Jersey. Unfortunately, unlike the river photos, there are no names recorded in the album for family members. Fred Fuller can only be found on two federal census reports. The first listing is on the 1880 census of Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, where he is a nine year old living with his grandfather, Theodore Scheffler. The second listing is on the census of 1900 for Frederick and his wife Nana or Nannie Blackley (1879 - 1838.) In that year, he is listed as an electrician, living in Essex, East Orange, New Jersey. According to family lore, Fred met his future wife, Nana Blackley, when he went to Franklin, North Carolina to set up an electric plant.

Postcard date 1915 showing Harris Ave., Bellingham, Washington. The area is now called "Fairhaven" but the street was named for Daniel Jefferson Harris, called 'Dirty Dan Harris'in 1867 because of his unkempt look and lack of bathing. Dan Harris filed the plat for the Town of Fairhaven on January 2, 1883 and grossed almost $22,000 by the end of that year by selling 238 lots. He obviously improved his appearance as he married Bertha L. Wasmer on October 17, 1885. 'Dirty Dan' was a harpooner, a pioneer, a rum-runner, a trader, a sailor, a land speculator and a developer. Daniel Jefferson Harries died in 1890.
