Monday Madness: Remember that Mystery? Blanche Philippi continues

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

This is the second post for Blanche Philippi............  to refresh click: Blanche Philippi August 26, 2015 post

.........and of course the challenge, the goal is to find living relative to return the original picture found of Blanche PHILIPPI. We are not there yet. It is harder to find a living relative than you might think.......  and takes time too. Lynne Roberts, our detective/ researcher has been hard at work trying to solve this mystery and is soooooo close. So read through what we have and see if any of it might ring a bell .......... we are hoping that someone out there may recognize the photo and/or the additional family information Lynne has gathered............  Thank You in advance. If you have some information please contact us
