HOP Unknown Pictures

The following pictures have been provided by the GRHS members who are uncertain of the persons in these photos. The photos posted here are believed to be of residents of the villages of the Hoffnungstal Odessa Parish families or village scenes.

Pictures will remain on this webpage as long as they are unidentified and resources allow.

The quality of the following photos as used here has been reduced so as not to take up too much resources. Full sized photos (if available) can be provided if needed. Please contact us if you have pictures of this nature you would like to post here. [we will want to limit an individual member to about 2-3 pictures in the active collection below at any one given time.]

[don't forget to check out the notes after each picture in case you find a picture you desire to make contact on]
