Well, this is interesting. The reason why I was asking is that my husband' s family has a photo album that dates from the late 1800's. Of course, none of the photos are labeled. In one of them, there is a man in military uniform, with what appears to be an Iron Cross on his left breast, and some other medals. With the Iron Cross on his left, that would indicate a first class award? The picture was taken in Wandsbeck. Another last name to try would be Kiehn, but I am truly stumped.
