This author had the pleasure to sit down recently with Fran and Arden Druckamiller and go thru the Druckamillers’ Bremen relations. The Druckamillers themselves were from the Syracuse, Indiana, area, but they married into the Heyde-Heckaman family.

They allowed Historic Bremen to scan their family albums, which include wonderful portraits dating to the turn of the 20th century, most of which are well labeled.

There are two albums posted on our Flickr account now, which you can browse below with the back and next buttons. Or you can click an image to be taken that image’s page on Flickr.

In addition, I have posted my Druckamiller-Heyde research.

Our thanks to the Druckamillers!

1948 - Gus and Susan Heyde family
1943 or so - Esther and Ilene
