Looking for Meyers family of St. Louis #usa #photographs
I’m looking for descendants or relatives of a Meyers family of St. Louis, for possible repatriation of a group of family photographs I was given by a cousin. Although none of the photographs have names or dates, I’ve come to believe that most of them are not from my own family, the Grossbergs of St. Louis, but from that of one of my great-aunts by marriage, Doreen Grossberg (later Broudy), born Doreen Meyers, also of St. Louis. It appears that Doreen (1898 - 1970) was born to a John Meyers and Sarah (Greenberg) Meyers in St. Louis and had two much-younger sisters, Beatrice and Josephine. The ca. dozen and half images--all formal portraits or formal group photos--seem to range from as early as the 1870s and stretch into the 1880s or ‘90s, and a number of them do bear stamps of St. Louis photo studios.
Please get in touch with me if you're one of those Meyers descendants or relatives, or know where or how I can find same. The photos are quite striking and I’d love to send them “home.”
