Hi Shelli,
Just received the explanation of the fabric over my gr mother's shoulder. Black hats worn by two women mean they are married. Usually two pieces of fabric are attached to the back of hat. Aunt Kate[in background] may have draped one over her mother's shoulder. The other lady should have the same on the back of her hat.
[Hats were optional]. Back then, women who were single usually braided their hair. Single men wore a hat with a feather. Info from a lady who came from Poland years ago.

Don,
Osieciny, Wloclawek is in the Kujawy are of Poland. The married women's hats are called Czapka.[/quote]

Polskamom,

Thanks for the info about the hats.
Don

This is a photo of my great great grandparents and their family from Korczyna. My great grandmother, Katazryna Ras, born in 1886, is on the far left. Her parents were Franciszek Ras and Anna Grochmal. On my great grandmother's marriage certificate to Wojciech Bober (from Rzeszow), it states that they were farmers. They look like they were very hard workers! I also know that two of the younger girls were named Helena (born abt. 1895) and Aniela (born abt. 1889). Some of the siblings immigrated and settled in Newmarket, New Hampshire, USA, while we've been told the rest stayed behind in Korczyna. I would love to connect with anyone researching Ras, Grochmal, or Bober surnames!

This is one of my absolute favorite photographs of some of my ancestors!


One of my ancestors, Mary Pelczarski married Joseph Ras and immigrated to Newmarket NH. I have some information of their descendants.

This photo is of a family group taken at a wedding. The back of the photo says Bromberg 2.11.1930. My mother told me the bride is her cousin, daughter of her aunt (the lady holding the small child). My mother pointed out to me 2 other cousins. I do not know the surnames of any of the individuals. My grandfather was Edward Vincent Franz Roszczynialski born in 1881 in Prust, Tuchel, West Prussia. I would like to find someone who may know these people. There is quite a lot of writing on the back of the photo and I think written in German. Is there someone in this group who could try to translate this for me?

Bydgoszcz - Bromberg
