Wordless Wednesday - A 4 Generation Photo

Four Generations of Women

I wish the photo was a bit clearer, but I'm just delighted to have it.  Only minor changes made to sharpen and get rid of flaws (unedited photo is on the bottom).

Sitting on the bench on the left - Bertha Boegel nee Rosbeck (my husband's great grandmother)

Child standing on the bench - Lorraine Ryan nee Kuehl (my husband's aunt)

Sitting on the bench on the right - Margaretha Rosbeck nee Thelen (my husband's great-great grandmother)

Standing - Leona Kuehl nee Boegel (my husband's grandmother)

Before photo corrections


  1. It IS a treasure! You did a nice job cleaning it up, Cheryl. I can sure see the family resemblance among the ladies, can't you? Do you use Picasa? It has the option (on a sliding scale) to sharpen images. It has been somewhat useful sometimes.

  2. Thanks, Nancy! I love the picture. I think I have a generations picture of men as well, but 3 generations or something like that. I'll have to check! :)

    I use Microsoft Picture Manager and then Serif Photo Plus x2. I may have to try Picasa to sharpen and see how I like it. Sadly, I haven't played with Picasa much.

  3. A classic of its era. We can learn so much about the time and place just by studying this photo. The fact that it's 4 generations of your family makes its history personal. thanks for sharing.

  4. What a wonderful picture to have - no matter the condition, right?!
