Still sifting through miles of information that I have and still receiving plenty of new information daily.

While sorting through all of the information that has piled up and that I haven’t sorted through is another photo my cousin John had sent to me of St. Hyacinth’s 8th Grade Graduation in 1932. I previously posted one from 1933. Click the photo to download a high-resolution larger copy and to be able to read the caption beneath. Possible follow ups for me in the future are the names Zielinski, Siwa (one of my dad’s best pals was Bernie Siwa), Kaminski (my kids’ paternal great-grandmother was a Kaminski). Amazing that it took me this long to take a long hard look at this photo and realize there were new angles to look into!
