Wordless Wednesday – Family Photos

Family stories are much more compelling when you have a face to accompany a historical narrative. This post however is not about words but rather the lack thereof. In honor of Wordless Wednesday, I am grouping all of my favorite family photographs of de Büren women from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Enjoy!

Jeanne de Büren (1905-1996)

Natalie de Büren (1903-1986)

Cousins Alice de Büren and Cécile de Freudenreich

Alice Eugènie de Büren (1868-1923)

Jeanne Henriette de Büren (1861-1944)

Germaine and Amélie de Büren

Germaine Sophie de Büren (1863-1931)


  1. Simply stunning portraits! My favorite is the one of Germaine and Amélie de Büren for showing us their intricate clothes.

  2. Lovely portraits. Natalie in particular was stunning. I love comparing the differences in clothing styles from the 1880s to the 1920s, especially hairstyles and hats. I want Germaine's hat.
