Identifying and Preserving Manning area Citizen history

Joachim Mundt -- grandfather of the late Bernice (Mundt) Spiese.

Over the last 8 years people have contacted me by e-mail looking for help with identifying family pictures they have from the Manning, Iowa area.

Most of the time the photos are in a frame labeled Lyden Studio, Manning, Iowa.

Unfortunately their relatives who could identify the pictures are deceased.

For those of you who are trying to get pictures of Manning area people/places identified and finding more information about those photos please e-mail me and I'll post your scanned pictures for you on this web page.
