Surname Saturday: EVEN Lost Relation

I've been rummaging through some old pictures, most of which are unidentified. The image below is a of a darling looking little girl unrelated to my family but I'm sure she belongs to someone else. Written on the back of the photo: Dorothy Even, 2 years old, 1929.
With that information, I found her in the 1930 census living at the same address as my mother-in-law's family. Dorothy was listed with her parents: Matthew & Alma and her two siblings: Elizabeth, age 13 and George, age 7. Her father age 45 had been born in France; mother age 30 had been born in New York. He father's occupation is "cutlery helper" in a cutlery factory.
Hopefully, this post will help her find her find her way back to family.


  1. What a cute little girl! Did you ever figure out her family's connection to your in-laws?

  2. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for the comment.
    Dorothy isn't "related" to the family but her family lived in the same apartment building as our family. They must have been close enough for my mother-in-law to want to keep her picture all these years.
    I'd like for someone from the EVEN family to see this picture.
    BTW, I also recently found a picture of her sister, Elisabeth.
