Babonich_0014, a photo by kterkan on Flickr.
This is a wonderful set of pictures of my Great Grandmother Elizabeth Heim Babonich. She is probably about 60 in these photos, and obviously concerned about getting the tone right for the photo. I can almost imagine her sitting in the photo booth planning each of the very different poses. My favorite is the one on the bottom right. I think it captures what was probably her inner personality, but alas I only know of her through the memories of those she lived around.
For a long time I despaired of knowing more about this branch of my family. However thanks to the miracle of the internet and the ease of international travel, I have discovered more than I thought possible. I've decided to dedicate a special page about her and the family from Hungary.
