As I was going through pictures tonight I came across this one that one of my kids took last weekend at a 4-H family potluck.
Recently I connected with a cousin, Kim, in California. (Hi Kim!) So I thought I’d post this picture of myself and she can tell me if there’s any family resemblance to her branch of the Mehmen family tree.
Personally I think I bear a resemblance to this woman, my great-grandmother, Grace Hovenga Mehmen. Except that my face is longer.
But that part might have come from this guy, my grandpa, Frances Cornelius “Fritz” Mehmen. He definitely had the longer face.
What do you think?
Shout out if you have any Mehmen’s or Hovenga’s or Oeltjenbruns’ in your family tree. (Think my dad’s side of the family is very German at all?)
