Richie C. has not received any gifts yet
I am new to the site. I have seen your photos but have not seen any comments on them. The family photo was not necessarily taken for a special occasion so that there is no particular significance rather just a family photo. These pictures were taken of farm as well as city families. I am the archivist and education co-ordinator for the Lithuanian Folk Art Institute. Unfortunately, they are not dressed in any regional style but rather the typical turn of the century dress. There is not enough detail to identify any further. As for the young lady in front of the fence. She is standing in front of a burial plot. It is customary in Lithuania to decorate the grave sites and to delineate each plot by a small fence or wall. She is wearing an overcoat.
I am registered on your site. I just have not been very active.
Keep up a great site
Hi - Which Averys are you researching? Mine are in Northern PA as early as 1784 but can't figure out where they were before then. I am sure of my grgrgrandfather Jacob Avery. We think his parents were William and Elizabeth Avery. This William died in 1834 and Jacob is listed in the probate papers so may be his son. Just wondering. Happy Holidays! Jim Avery, Dover PA
