I purchased this group of photos from someone who purchased them from an estate. I was hoping that this was a family grouping, but I haven't made any connections.

One thing that did stand out when I started my research was that in almost every case, the photo was that of a child of an immigrant that settled in or around Albany, New York, most of them from Germany.

Below are scanned images of the photos and any research I was able to do on the family. I am hoping that I didn't make any errors connecting the wrong photos with the wrong families. If you find any mistakes, please let me know. I also believe that some of the surnames are misspelled.
