One of our recent acquisitions is a  wonderful group of images of the Weeks family women. The pictures are believed to be from the 1850’s (the daguerreotypes) to the 1880’s (the photographs). As the daguerreotypes were in a lovely closable case they are well preserved. (The printed views are in reverse.) One has a label that says “Weeks - Grandma Kraber’s”.

The photographs show the Weeks women with their married names noted. What a great opportunity for a genealogist!

I was able to personally visit the Weeks cemetary a few weeks ago. It remains in fairly good shape (except for a groundhog who has decided it is a great place to dig a burrow.)

If you have an interest in viewing these images, please contact the museum at 207-923-3505.
