Ellen Wright, my cousin Rosa’s daughter, has been going through her mother’s collection of family photos and has come across some real gems. With her permission, I’ll be adding a lot of these to the site. I did want to put a couple here in the blog since these are some of the relatives that stayed behind in Switzerland. The first one is a very nice shot of our family kin. Mother, Selina Kull was the sister of Fred and Julius. She was married to Adolph Hammerli and they had six children that I know of – Selina, Friedrich, Elsa, Eugen, Julius, and Arthur.
Ellen’s information had the two young men as being possible spouses of Elsa and Selina. I think it is more likely that they are brothers. The one on the right looks like another picture we have that was labeled as being an older Eugen. I have another photo identified as Elsa’s husband. He was considerably older than her and does not look like either of the young men here.
The picture above was a “slam dunk” since the names were written above the two girls. I’m delighted that Ellen has shared these. My hope is that one day, some of the Hammerli descendents will see these and contact us.
