A Lot Of Children Photo Follow up

For Wordless Wednesday this week I posted another unmarked photo shared with me from the Weiss Family collection. It is a wonderful photo of children sitting/standing on the running board of a car.

My connection to the Weiss family is through marriage. Rosie was the sister to the wife of my 2x great Uncle, Marks Hyamovitch. This connection has led to some fun family history collaborations and picture sharing.

Back to the photo above of the children. Marion Levin b. 1922, daughter of William Levin and Rosie Levin nee Weiss is the little girl sitting on the right end. I am dating this photo about 1927. And below is photo of Marion with her mother Rosie. (I have shared this photo before.)  I suspect her two older brothers, Samuel b. 1910 and Norman b. 1919 are also in the photo.

An adoptee who found both her maternal and paternal side 18 years ago, I began digging into my new found families past. The journey has been amazing connecting and reconnecting lost and found generations.

  1. Oh, another mystery to solve – who’s in the car? I’m always so happy to see the photos you have. I have almost none. My sister had a shoebox full, and I don’t know what happened to them when she died. I hope someone saved them.

    1. Thanks Susan, I am having a lot of fun with this bunch of pictures and had quite a break through with information this morning. However we still don’t know who is in the car 🙂 Oh I hope someone did save the pictures too and you can locate them

  2. Woohoo! A little bit of leg there. She has such a great smile, too. And the kids!!! I am not good with car identification. I’ll ask my husband if he knows.

    1. Would love to hear if your husband has an idea on the car. Woohoo is right, the days when a little leg like that was so sexy 🙂

        1. You did email me 🙂 oh goodness I didn’t respond 😦 yet… it was on my to do list. Yes we need a blogger buddy who can date our car pics 🙂

I would love to hear from you
