An undated photograph of an adult class in the Pennsylvania German Language, taught in Lykens Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Those who participated had an interest in keeping alive the language spoken by their ancestors. The class was taught by Irvin Klinger.
Identified in the photograph are:
Seated: Lynn Shadle; Marie Stine; Becci Hoover; —–?—–; —–?—–; Mike Engle.
Standing: Dennis Barge; Blanche Hepler; Sally Hepler; Doris Shade; —–?—–; Irvin Klinger, teacher.
Not much is known about this class – when it was first organized, where it was held, how long it lasted, or whether there were other classes in later years.
Irvin Klinger died on 16 July 2002 in Elizabethville, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.
Help is needed in identifying three persons in the photo above.
