World War I Draft Registration for the Adam Brothers

World War I Draft Registration Cards are on file at the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington DC. If a trip to Washington DC is out of the question, you can subscribe to Ancestry.com and read them any time. The copies are not the best but still readable. I searched for my great-uncle Eugene Conrad Adam and my grandfather Willie Eugene Adam.

Adam Descendants at Julius Adam Home in 1912

Celebration? Relatives visiting on Sunday afternoon? I don’t know, but I love the picture! The family is posed in front of the Julius Adam home on a sunny day in 1912. Adalbertha Bergmann Adam is front row center. On her left is Bertha Adam Froebel Haby, her daughter, Erna Adam, her granddaughter, has her hand on her chair, on her right is Kathinka Adam Toepperwein, her oldest daughter.
