Wedding photo - May issue

Postby clarksclerks » Thu Apr 18, 2013 1:09 am

I've just received the May issue and my heart missed a beat when I saw the wedding photo on p.25. The older woman on the extreme right is so like my grandmother, Louise Burger nee Liethen (1883-1967). She lived in the London Bridge area for most of her life.

Do you have any information about the photo? I'd guess it was taken 1950s or 1960s and I don't recognise anyone else.

From the names, you can probably tell that I'll read the article on German ancestors avidly.

Hello Eileen,

It's actually a photograph of my grandparents' wedding in 1954! The woman on the extreme right is my great great grandmother, Nellie Stedman (née Gains) – not a Burger, unfortunately! When I first saw your post, I thought I had stumbled across a distant relative...

All the best,
Jon

Thanks Jon. Perhaps we all have a 'double' somewhere!

Best wishes
