Dear Jim:

I just found this website. I don't know if I would be related to any of the people you have in your photo collection, however, I am a 5th generation Chicagoan, (dating to the 1870's).

Does your collection consist of any addresses such as Mohawk Ave., Montana, Burling. Look closely at any saying Mohawk, you may have a collectors item, (my grandfather and Johnny Weismiller grew up together; he taught Johhny how to swim in the Chicago River, YUCK).

I'd appreciate receiving a response at my e-mail, (, or by phone, 630-893-6999.
