John William Blumenstiel

John William Blumenstiel (1883-1976), my maternal great-grandfather. Born in 1883 in Reichensachsen, Hessen, his family immigrated to Freeport, Illinois, USA in 1885. I believe this rather surreal photo of him was taken after he moved to Detroit, in the early 1900s. #falknerjarrell #blumenstielgenealogy #familyhistory #genealogy #familyphotos #ancestry #history #knowyouroots #antiquephotograph #family #vintagephotography #oldphotos #oldphoto #ancestor #antiquephoto #genealogyresearch #familytree #familyhistorian #findyourroots #traceyourroots #genealogia #familyarchives #detroit #michigan #blumenstiel #greatgrandfather #reichensachsen #hessen #freeportil #immigrant
