Bob and Shirley Krueger’s Wedding Reception

This photo, shared with me by Loris Dustin, was taken in the basement of my great-grandfather Oscar’s Krueger’s home.  He had a little bar down there, nestled amongst the heating ducts and other functioning aspects of the home.  I’ve heard many stories about the raucous times had by the Krueger clan in that little basement bar!

The caption on the back of this photo says:

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
