(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Joseph Polianski Jr. and his Lithuanian Uncles, 1930

In 1930, my first cousin twice removed Anastasia (Anastazija) Radauskas Polianski (1892-1978) traveled back to Lithuania to visit members of her family of origin who were still living there.  She took her then-youngest son Joseph Anthony Polianski Jr. (1924-2002).  While there, the family members still in Lithuania had a portrait taken with their American daughter/sibling and her son.  Joseph also posed for this picture with his Lithuanian uncles.

Standing from the left are brothers Ignacijus Radauskas (Jr., born 1894), Steponas Radauskas (1899-1944), and Kazimieras Radauskas (born 1886). Sitting are Petras Palujanskas (ABT. 1891-1954), the husband of Virginija Radauskaitė and the brother of Anastazija Radauskaitė Polianski's husband Joseph Sr.; and Joseph Anthony Polianski Jr. (1924-2002) from America, son of Anastazija Radauskaitė Polianski.

The photo in this post came from the private album of Aldona Radauskaitė Zigmantavičienė, the daughter of Steponas Radauskas, a brother of Leo Radauskas.   Thank you Aldona!  Thanks also to Osvaldas Guokas, who has been sharing all these photographs and information with me!
