Herr und Frau Bartels

picturesbyclaudia 292

After I had published a picture of my great grandmother Maria Korbach Bartels I received a comment from Cheri about the name Bartels in her research.  So, here is the picture I promised.   My great grandfather was Daniel Mathias Bartels from Celle, Germany.   There are a few so I am researching the one closest to Jena, which is were Maria was from, according to my grandmothers birth certificate.

Daniel was a cigar maker and a cabinet maker.    My daughter said they both look like they have on their “German” faces.

By the style of Marias hat I would guesstimate that the photo was taken circa 1920’s.   As usual nothing was on the back.
