This gorgeous family photo recently was posted in the Shawano Leader and we decided to place it online, too.  Hopefully one of our researchers will recognize the family or a family member so we can put names to these faces!  Email me if you have any ideas or clues!

This is either Oconto or Shawano people and was published in the Shawano paper. The article reads as follows: 

The photo above was recently found at a home in Oconto Falls. It turned up in the home of Joan Gauthier, 92, who told her daughter, Joan Block of Bonduel, that she didnít recognize anyone in the picture as an ancestor.

On the back of the photo, written in pencil is "Taken in Shawano, Wisconsin, Dec. 25th 1908" followed by "Family Reunion- first and last reunion".

Block said her mother gave the photo to her hoping someone in the area can identify the family pictured.

"If someone can identify the people," she said, "I'd like to give them the picture." If it turns out to be relatives of Block, she said she'd be happy to provide a copy.

And, if you have photos that need names to go with the faces, contact me and we'll place them online, too!  Our website readers hail from all 50 states and various countries throughout the world!!
