Old letters written by various relatives can often provide insight into the family life in the earlier days. If you have some tucked away in your files, you might take a look at them and see what information you can extract.

Members of my family had some old letters written to my grandfather by his brothers back in Germany. Some of the handwriting was poor and they were in the old German Kurrent script. So it took some effort to transcribe them but was well worth the effort.

I compiled the information that they contained and posted it in the following file, Early Pape Family Life in Germany. They proved to be quite interesting.
