My cousin Mickey, who also loved my Great Aunt Ermie dearly, is also a nurse and has conducted quite a bit of research into the genealogy of our family. He recently shared these photographs with me.Above: My Great Grandparents (left) with two of their daughters. My Great, Great Uncle is on the right. Ermie is the younger of the two girls, in the center of the photograph.
I love this photo of her.
**Edit 2/4/10: My Cousin Mickey just emailed me with the specifics: (from left top) Ludvik (my Great Grandfather) Frances (bottom left, my Great Grandmother), my Great Aunt Ermie in the center, my Great Aunt Henrietta (bottom far right) and (top right) Uncle Bohumil.
Directly above & below: Great Uncle Bab (Frank J. Cuhel) in Polo and track & field gear (above & below).
Ermie, which is short for Ermengarde means "Whole" or "Universal."
Vincenza was her middle name which means "Conquering" or "Persevering."I like that.
** Obviously, this is not the Corner View. I'll likely be joining in again towards the end of October.
My new job, while great, involves A LOT of time on the computer. So, the last thing I have had the energy for these last few weeks, is to spend more time on the computer. It's also been hard for me to take photographs, as when I get up it's dark, and by the time I come home, it's dark.
I'm going to have to come up with some creative solutions in order to continue this blog...but fear not!
Thanks for being patient with me during this transition.
