Houtzdale, Pennsylvania - A Time-Voyage


Great Aunt Julia was a fantastic host for the folks who came for the weddings, christenings, and a quick getaway. Here she is with her husband Michael Dombrosky (better spelling!) and daughter Frances Dombrosky Holowecky. The house in the background belongs to the Lenkevich's, and is not my aunt's house as I had originally assumed...the trio is standing in Aunt Julia's garden.

The visiting relatives from Cleveland (a BIG city) were always a novelty; chances are it had something to do with a snazzy car that made a great prop for photos...

Sophie Trojanowski, Frances Dombrosky, Mary Trojanowski, and Miss Mura, whose house looks like this today...


and there was the occasional Christening...

second cousin Sophie and her son Richard Martin...

...the proud parents and (I don't know who else...)

Everybody loves a wedding...here's Sophie and her new husband Steve Martin
