My petite young grandparents married in London, England, after emigrating from separate shtetls in Lithuania in the late 1890s. Their wedding photograph (over the Lithuanian flag) shows their anxiety. After two children were born in London, my grandfather sailed to New York to find a new life for his family and the four children that came afterwards. After living in Johnstown, PA, they moved to Washington, DC, to be near relatives.
