The Meteyer Family – Season 1, Episode 6 – Meet the Mundings

The Meteyer Family – Season 1, Episode 6 – Meet the Mundings

This new blog about our ancestors is a sort of experiment. I have had very few readers from now, but having lots of readers is beside the point.

One day someone will stumble upon this blog and feel somewhat overwhelmed. This is what happens when someone stumble upon the original Our Ancestors where I posted more than 1500 articles.

Having met the Meteyer family in 1938, the search is on for descendants of the Munding family.

Josephine Munding, Ernest Darius Meteyer’s wife, is seen here with her parents Joseph Munding and Margaret Ritz, and her sister Anna Martha Munding.

Shared by Michael Meteyer’s sister last October, I have been able to find out who were most of these people and write about them a little on Our Ancestors II.

Last week this is what I had written…

I won’t even try to identify all these people nor ask you to count how many you see.

Do you honestly believe what I had written?

Last week I remembered Grace Kenealy’s niece.

She was found here on Find A Grave…

Chances are slim I will ever be contacted by her descendants, maybe one chance in a quadrillion?

Anyway…

What about identifying some ancestors on this group photo? Why not start with the baby Josephine Munding was holding in the spring of 1916 in Rochester, New York.

Tune in next Sunday morning for Season 1, Episode 7 – Ernest Charles Meteyer on Our Ancestors II.

Where all this will lead us to I still have no idea and it’s the most exciting part of writing about it.

Twenty-two people were on this photo taken in Rochester in 1938, and some are ancestors still waiting to be remembered.

Michael Meteyer’s sister had shared this photo last October and I have managed to find out were most of these people and write about it on Our Ancestors II.

I won’t even try to identify all these people nor ask you to count how many you see.

Last week I think I have found one child…

Where all this will lead us to I have no idea and it’s the most exciting part of writing about it.

How many people on this photo are waiting to be remembered?

When Michael Meteyer’s sister sent me this photo last October I could not help myself searching who was who. I had to find out who were these people and also write about it on Our Ancestors II.

Of course Michael Meteyer’s sister wanted to know who were these two people she had circled, but I wanted to go all in.

I am sure one day Michael Meteyer will  write something on Our Ancestors II. Readers’ contributions fuel this blog.

Getting back to my question…

So how many people have you counted? It’s much easier than counting how many people are on this one isn’t.

So how many people have you counted ? Write down your answer in the comment section.

Last week the question was who were the three children in front? I had a few hypotheses.

I think I found one child…
