If your photos are more than 2mb in size, you can reduce the size by using http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

Also, with the free image software Picasa, you can use the export feature to resize the photos for online postings. http://picasa.google.com

If you have photos of unidentified relatives, we’ve started another thread for mystery ancestors at: http://forum.polishorigins.com/viewtopic.php?t=794

This is a great photo! What a wonderful opportunity to see what your ancestors looked like and what clothes they wore. I imagine that this was there "Sunday Best." And I love the flowers tucked into their girls' dresses. What do you think is in the lower left, cat or dog? Thank you so much for sharing your ancestors with us!

I think you are doing just fine. The cool thing is that you can always go back and edit your posting. I see that you did a nice job of moving your grandfather's photo. Thanks so much for posting his photo. Does someone in your family have the watch he is wearing? Any thoughts on what is in his left hand? A cigar?

Hi Shelli,
Dad's family is from small town just west of Wloclawek. [Osieciny] Object may be part of a game from that period, but it looks like a cane. The little baby may be my cousin. Father is holding a watch fob. Notice it goes up into his vest. As for grandma's attire, I'll have to do some investigating. Thank you for your kind comments
Don


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. You can search the internet for Kujawy folk costumes to get an idea of what the outfits would look like in color. Also there have been several folk costume books published in Poland.

Post Posted: Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:21 pm      Post subject: Ras Family from Korczyna
Reply with quote

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!
