Hey . Can you help me figure out a mystery?

I have recently inherited a bunch of pictures from my Mom's estate. I found this picture among her things - a picture of an African-American boy.

My family DNA is pretty much 50% cauliflower and 50% Wonder Bread. So, who is this fine young lad, and why was his picture put in our family album?

Interesting, eh?

Jane is a genealogy tutor who enjoys helping people discover their family history. She never expected to meet Robert, a famous actor who needs her genealogy expertise. He's also interested in Jane as more than a friend, but Jane is not ready for the media attention and the glamour of dating a star. Can she overcome her fears and find love in the spotlight?

What would a prisoner record be called in German?

I am trying to figure out whether prisoner records from Festung Rendsburg in 1803 are extant or not. I can understand written German but it is difficult to search for the records when I do not know what they are called.
