      Several sources have given me these names for one of the pictures. Would love to fill in some of the missing.

      Great photo of the band. Do you mind if we include that in our Texas Dance Hall database?

      I have two old pictures of a Schuetzenverein from the Comal County area. One picture is the same as posted at:

      I’ve also seen the information on the New Braunfels Schuetzenverein at:

      A couple of questions. Was the NB Schuetzenverein a different organization from the Bracken Schuetzenverein?

      Both of my pictures were taken at the same location. I have identified one individual in both pictures as my GGF, Wilhelm Fenske. I suspect there are other relatives in the pictures, but can’t identify them.

      I’d love to find out more about these pictures and the history of the Bracken Schuetzenverein. Has anyone ever seen a membership list from the late 1880s or 1890s?
