I posted this photo on Tuesday:
The second picture is the mystery. Clearly two of the people are the same. They are my great-great-aunt Kristina with her husband Andrew Barbieri. But who are the others? Notice first that the picture of the child on the wall is the same. However, the walls are different, so the rooms or houses are different. The curtains are the same too. So, is the second photo a later photo? I can't be sure but the woman standing in the center in the first photo, whom I know to be my great-great-grandmother seems to be the same woman seated in the center of the second photograph. She's older (by say ten years). If that is so, then the man seated next to her must be her husband, and therefore I have a photo of my great-great-grandfather. But this photo is not labelled. And all the people who could corroborate it are now dead. The irony is that their deaths brought the photo into my possession in the first place. My fear is that the older couple is Andrew Barbieri's parents. Is there a resemblance between the two men in the second photo?
My great-aunt Bette at my grandmother's funeral at which I sang, told me that my great-great-grandfather, whom she knew had the same type of voice, a big one that could fill a room easily. He had thick hair and a mustache according to her description. Is that this man?
