I spent Christmas Day, 2019, scanning some of my mother-in-law’s old family photos. Some of them had long notes on the back, written in German. Her mother, Helen Schiesl, was born in Munich, or München, in 1892.
Thought I took a couple of years of German in high school, I’m not able to read these. Aside from my limited German, the handwriting is also a challenge, so I am posting them here in hopes I can get help with translating them.
On the first one, the second line, I think I can make out the word photographer or photograph. The picture this note was written on is below it. I think there are names written on, but the ink is smudged a bit over the years. I think perhaps the young man in uniform is Helen’s brother Norbert Schiesl, who may have been killed in World War I.
