Thought to be a family member. Anyone recognize him as a Bra(a)tz? This photo from Danzig may be from around 1880.
This photo in Loebau may be from Gottlieb Braatz, born 1814 at his 2nd marriage to Caroline born Lehmann, taken March, 20, 1865.
These are thought to be Braatz family members from Bromberg. Please let us know if you recognize them.
There is a great website that has a ton of postcard images of Bromberg, an origin of Wolfgang's Braatz ancestry. Check it out:
