This Civil War era CDV photo was found near Rochester in Livingston, Ontario County NY. Addy or Addie may be a nickname for Adaline, Adeline, Adelia, Adella, Adelaide, Adelphia. This photo is somewhat light in tone, but still a beautiful image. Scans are enhanced and sharpened.
A beautiful piece that needs some good Rochester area genealogy work. We found evidence of the Welner family records in Greece NY, a suburb of Rochester, Monroe County. We have included a large scan of the handwritten signature.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
