We have been reminiscing about my father-in-law who passed away a few weeks ago, on December 31st. This is his family, in Russia somewhere in the late 1800s. The original of this photo hangs in my father-in-law's house in Texas. We have a copy framed and hanging in our foyer.
In the top row, third in from the right is my husband's great-grandfather, and in front of him with the fantastic grey beard is his father (my husband's great-great grandfather). The surname was originally Litwak, and changed to Lane sometime after he came to the United States in 1910.
I am sharing this family photo as part of Sepia Saturday.
