The Loven Album

This is an album of family photographs compiled by my great-grandmother Anna L. (Loven) Lapp. Most of the images are labeled, so it's possible to put names to the faces, but before building the web pages, I didn't know how most of them were related. Since then, I found several Lapp cousins who have shared their genealogical information with me and clarified many of the relationships, and I continue to research the Loven side.

Whatever was written on the pictures is reproduced here in quotes. Bold text is my identification of the subject. Most of the links connect to another page here, but some go to sites that were the sources of the genealogical information I found.

I've organized the photographs by family, so pages here don't correspond to those in the original album. I've numbered the photographs in the order that I scanned them, which for the most part is also the order in which they appear in the album. A few of the photos weren't mounted in the album, but stuck in it loosely, and those I gave letters rather than numbers.

The following outline shows the family relationships. A plus sign indicates a marriage, and the children from that union immediately follow.
