About a year ago, I purchased a shoe box of old family photos on ebay.  I thought about how happy I'd be if I ran across someone with an old box of LAEDTKE or BLAESE pictures and thought if I could scan these online, someone might be able to identify the people in them.  They are said to be from the Wittenberg area -- some are labeled LIESCH ~ BLOECHER.... and about 95% of them have nothing written on them to identify them.  If you can identify any of these folks, email me!  THANKS!

On the back of this was written "Some of the woman at the store"

This appears to be very old, compared to the others.
This appears to be a class photo -- the back of the picture says that it belongs to Leona Bloecher.  The date is July 25, 1933 and it identifies the children!  I have no idea if this is in order or how it is written.

"Mr. & Mrs. Henry Schoepke"
(Additional info sent in by Karen Craig: I have a Henry Schoepke in my family tree -- He married Anna Wendler.  He lived in the Wittenberg area most of his life and is buried in the Wittenberg Cem. according to his obit.   I have never seen this picture but I compared it against another picture I have of him at an earlier age and it appears to be him.)
