Help with five words on familie X
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 15:17 GMT (UK) »

Examining mysteries of great-great grandma's 19th century involvement with another family in Germany (Geissen?).

I would be most grateful for assistance deciphering writing on back of photo. Many thanks.

Or maybe Gvisser??  Though the writer does seem to dot the 'i's clearly so maybe  -     possibly Gonser??    :-\

Not sure, but will bump this up so OP sees it to respond.

Thank you so much for your efforts. So I gather I should take from this as definitive that it is not (alas) "Geissen"?

Really don't think so!   :-\ ;)    That at least is pretty definitive.
