Foltz Family Videos posted by Mahoning Valley Historical Society

From The Business & Media Archives of the Mahoning Valley:
"We stumbled upon this film footage while searching through our MVHS archives. This 16 mm film belonged to the Foltz family and was shot from 1930-1937 in and around Salem, Ohio as well as on various outings/vacations, two of which were shot in Ontario and in Redondo Beach, California. The Foltz family owned and operated The Foltz Flour Mill in Salem, Ohio. We're not sure if there are any family members still in the Mahoning Valley but we'd love to hear from them if there are. George S. Foltz was born in 1932 and ended up living in Florida for much of his adult life, served in Korea and was a pharmacist. We know he was buried in Salem. "Chelsea" courtesy of Radio Lark. Enjoy the video!"
