One day about September 2000, I was doing research on the Geiles standing in the cemetery at Silver Lake when a man walked up to me inquiring of my ancestors. He was excited to learn I descended from Joe Geile because he had photos of my family that he had inherited from an Aunt (or great Aunt) who was related to him by marriage, and who had no children. I took the photos home with me to copy. I paid $25 to have one of the photos professionally scanned, but at the time we did not have home scanners or cell phones, so I my only other resource was a copy machine. Click here for a 177 page pdf scan of these photocopies from my binder, which also include copies of handwritten notes. Some of the people I know who they are. However, I would love help to identify everyone.
