My guess is this is a confirmation class at the Sion Lutheran church in Lancaster. If I recall, they have all of these photos on display in the parish hall and I think the individuals are listed and very likely identified. I believe this surviving Lutheran church also has the records of events such as births, deaths, baptisms and confirmations for both Sikar and Saron. If this doesn't pan out, you can bring the picture over to my Mother and see if she can identify some of the individuals. She turns 95 on March 10th, but I'm pretty sure she is one of the few folks that can possibly identify these individuals by sight.

Thanks for the information and tip Fred. Thanks for giving me an excuse to go and see your mother Ruth. I always enjoy visiting with her. I will also check out the photos and records at the Sion Luthern Church.

I was at the Sion Luthern Church yesterday but no one was around. I have spoken with Diane Rice and since she has a key she has offered to get me inside. I will report further, once I know more.
