Hello, it's me

Strange thing to me, the girl on the far right looking into the camera looks just like me when I was her age, only I was about this age in the 1970s, I guess we all do have a twin out there some where, even if it was in a different era.

Yup, "cheese-beer"

Apparently 600+ years ago it referred to an inn where the coaches would stop for lunch, offering only cold food. Presumably an innkeeper adopted this name just as smiths became Schmidt and weavers adopted Weber.

Casbier, Casebeer, Casebere are American variants, but none closely related to Gertrude's husband, descending from a family that came over much earlier.

Kasebier?

My German's a little rusty...does Gertrude's surname translate to "cheese beer"?

Oh, and you have to love a country of immigrants where a woman named Gertrude Kasebier has granchildren named O'Malley! The variety of last names in my family tree has always been a source of delight...we can celebrate ANY holiday!
