What would be my paternal grandparents’ 102nd wedding anniversary on Friday, 15 September 2017, in Passaic, New Jersey had me looking once again at vintage photos taken of friends and family who had emigrated from what is today Slovakia. All of the pictures were taken about in the 1910-1920 time frame and I actually know who these people are, since I asked Nana when I went through them decades ago.

I love these next photos of my dad and his cousins – so cute!

This last set of photos is probably from c1922. I believe that the man kneeling on the left is Nana’s brother, Peter Scerbak and his wife, Mary, is standing behind him holding the baby. Nana is sitting in the middle and my grandfather is kneeling on the right. I would love to know who the other people were and why they had gathered.

Happy 102nd Anniversary, Nana and Papa
