.John and Francis Czerkas.
John and Francis Czerkas
This picture was on the wall in my dads living room and i believe it was taken of my grandparents, Iwan (jan) and Frances Czerkas. This picture was heavily touched up by hand. Am guessing it was taken maybe when he was about 30 and she was maybe in her early 20s. Possibly taken when they were still in Europe.

.Cherkas Wedding about 1915.
Cherkas Wedding about 1915
Wedding about 1915, We think the boy on the left is not Steve Zerkis but his brother Louie Louie would have been 12 years old in 1915 and Steve would have been 8 years old The man 5th from the left in the top row must be Tony Cherkas (son of John and Frances) he would be 20 The Zulkewski family were family friends, the small girl Nellie is their daughter The wedding couple Mrs. Galate and Michael Galate are supposed to be cousins but we have no record of who they are. Top row on right is Michael Cherkas, brother of John Cherkas. In front of him is his son Walter about 5 or 6 yrs. Anna Sclota wife of Michael with son Peter Cherkas at age 1

altar tabernacle they built or had built for the then new Ukrainian Catholic church in Woodbine New Jersey
I'm guessing this was taken in the late 1920's or so. My dad, Steve Zerkis is standing on the right in a suit, I believe my grandfather, Ivan Cherkas is standing the second from the left. What they have on display is a altar tabernacle they built or had built for the then new Ukrainian Catholic church in Woodbine.

.Czerkas Family Photo about 1920.
Czerkas Family Photo about 1920
family photo taken probably in the late 1920's or so. From the left, it looks like Steve Husak, my dad Steve Zerkis standing in back, then his sister Anne Sule, my grandmother, Frances Czerkas. In front of her is one of the two Husak girls, I'm guessing Lillian. Next to my grandmother in the back is my uncle Alex Husak, then my aunt Lottie (Clara) Husak. In front of her another daughter, (Vicky), my aunt Pearl Shapren, and my grandfather, Ivan Czerkas. I'm not sure of the spellings of the last names of my grandparents, I do know that when Frances came through immigration the records show her as using Czerkas. Have not found any Ellis Island records of my grandfather's arrival yet.

.Zerkis Wedding.
Zerkis Wedding
I know that Aunt Anne can identify all the people in this picture. I recognize the face of the third person from the left, don't know the name, possibly "Ulick"? I remember him as being in the Navy in WW II. Fifth from the left is my uncle Charles Sule, Anne Sule, Steve Zerkis, Pearl Shapren and Alex Husak. I think that Uncle Alex gave away the bride. What would be the date?

Tony Anton Zerkas
Uncle Tony (anton) Zerkas in the US Army in WW I. Had to be 1917 or 1918 give or take a year or two. I think this might have been taken after basic training rather then at the end of his enlistment but i am not certain.
