A Great Uncle

Kaunas, Lithuania, about 1926. This photo arrived in the "new batch" of images my Kaunas Cousin sent. We initially couldn't identify this man. The image, however, was grouped with members of my side of the family, and in collaboration with our Toronto Cousin, we determined that this is Kazimieras—an older brother of my paternal Grandfather, Vytautas. That makes him my Great Uncle. He resembles other men in the family, and like them, he grayed prematurely.
Kazimieras was the father of my Dad's older cousins, Henry and Vytas. That also makes him the Great-Grandfather of my Kaunas Cousin. So yes, my Kaunas Cousin really is a niece to me and my Toronto Cousin. But we like to keep things simple.

Thanks to my Kaunas Cousin for making this photo available to us.
