Sometime during the 1920's, part of the Sharon family (originally Chorazicki, pronounced "Haronzitsky") from Cincinnati, Ohio, journeyed back to Lazdijai to visit relatives still living there. Ben Sharon and his wife Annie Berman (originally Schupatsky) were born in Lazjidai at the end of the 19th century.
Here is a copy of the passport photo that was taken for the journey: Annie, Edna, Ben, Milton
The eldest son, Isadore, stayed in Cincinnati to run his father's business while the rest of the family was away.
We are in the process of transcribing the recollections of Edna Sharon from the trip. They will be included on this page in the near future.
