Visual Family Tree I - The Hillingers

Thought it would be fun to do a visual representation of each of the four main branches of my family tree as far as we have photos back, one for each generation.

So today I present the Hillingers:

Me and my sister as wedding attendants ca 1984

My Parents on their wedding day in 1969

Dad and his siblings as kids with Grumpy and Nana

Grumpy (Sam) and Nana (Maggie) in the late 40s

Dora and Alex with their first grandchild, my dad’s cousin, sometime in the late 40s

Sam with his whole family before they came to the US in the mid-thirties:
L-R: Back - Sam, Dora, Ben, Alex, Minna; Front: Helena, Selma (on Dora's lap), Hilda aka Peppi

Dora with her sister Minna in the late 19-teens

Fiege Golde Kresch (nee Riech), mother of Dora, around 1927

If I am correct, this would be Benzion Kresch, whom Grumpy's elder brother was named for

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
