Centered in the back is my great-great-grandmother, Susana (Balaz) Kristofik. Thankfully someone wrote that (sadly on the photo itself) or I wouldn't have known that. Susana had four children. Three of them emigrated to the U.S. permanently. One stayed in Europe. She went back and forth as money and time would allow. She died there in 1931 so I have one death certificate from Czechoslovakia, a country which no longer exists. In the back to the left is my great-great-uncle Andrew Barbieri. According to family legend, he ran liquor with Lucky Luciano during Prohibition.
