This picture was taken Easter 1915. The title Easter 1915 was written on the back, in German. I like the minister in the middle with the Elizabethan type collar and the black robe.
My grandmother is sitting, first girl, second row on the right. I recognized her picture because I have many pictures of her as a child.
She was born in 1900, that would be a good year, you would always know how old you were. She does appear to be about fifteen years old. What I thought was interesting is in the Catholic Church they all wear white for their Confirmation. Was it not the fashion, were the Germans more practical to wear a nice dress that could be used again. Or was it the fact that they were in the midst of WWI?
That is something I will probably never know. I think it is amazing that even during a war, the religious celebrations went on.
If I can find the Church records I could find out more about my family in Germany.
