Laura Schermack Blumenstiel Postcard

1909 Postcard from my great-grandmother, Laura Schermack Blumenstiel in Freeport, Illinois, USA to my great-grandfather, John William Blumenstiel, in Detroit, Michigan, USA. He moved to Detroit to seek his fortune, along with Laura’s brother, inventor Joseph J. Schermack, Jr.. Apparently, Laura wanted to move back to their hometown of Freeport and she tells him he can get a job at “Stover’s,” the Stover Manufacturing Company. Despite Laura’s efforts, they stayed in Detroit for the rest of their lives. #falknerjarrell #blumenstielgenealogy #familyhistory #genealogy #familyphotos #ancestry #history #knowyouroots #family #vintagephotography #oldphoto #ancestor #antiquephoto #genealogyresearch #familytree #familyhistorian #findyourroots #traceyourroots #genealogia #familyarchives #detroit #michigan #blumenstiel #greatgrandparents #freeportil #postcard #oldpostcard #1909 #josephjschermack #schermackcompanies
