The Pelarske / Pilarski Family of Mary and Joseph

My Great grandmother "hattie" Pelarske married Charles Shanbach. I have a wonderful view of their farm and the family in front of the farm house in Minnesota dated roughly 1890. Would love to find any additional descendents still living in area?
thank you for any assistance

Perhaps the farmhouse in the photo is the home of Joseph and Mary Pelarske - not the home of Hattie and Charles Shanbach?

This is my family :) Do I know you? My birth name is Betty Schanback... I can't answer they questions here as I'm on my Kindle but when I'm on my computer I hope we can email. My dad was was the youngest of the seven sisters you listed - he was born 4-23-21 and turns 94 this year. After him there was the youngest daughter Mary Francis... not sure if her birth year. The document was my grandfathers citizenship document - wow! That was exciting... all of this is.

Hi brightstar 965 (Betty), the person who started this thread was skydancer951. He/she asked about a photo of a farm circa 1890. I am a volunteer family history researcher, not related. I worked on this research, for clues in decoding the photo, simply to try to help out. I posted your grandfather's citizenship paper. Though I responded almost immediately, I never heard from skydancer951, no thanks, no comment, nothing. Skydancer posted the question and then turned away. It's special to me, to get your response now. This is what keeps volunteer researchers motivated - responses like yours!

And I don't know if skydancer951 is Regina. I am not.

Happy hunting and all good wishes

I just signed up for a free trial and worked on my tree today... Schanback/Pelarske/Haynes/Howell (including alternate spellings). I belong to our local genealogy society. My dad is 94 and I'm hoping to get him to do an autosomal dna test. I had an issue with the button on here for alternate this n thats... I thought it was listing each alternative but it seems it just changes it each time. Maybe I'm wrong. But... definitely thank you for reigniting my excitement about using the site.
