I am trying to find out more about my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Pason, who is in the back row second from the left in the picture. She was born in Podegrodzie, Poland (then a part of the Austrian Empire) in September of 1885. The story my grandfather always told was that she came to the U.S. with a group of women about 1912. I was finally able to locate this picture, which shows the group of women with a Catholic priest. The photo was taken prior to her marriage to my great-grandfather in Michigan in 1920. The last name of the photographer is Berger, and the address is 612 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, Ohio. Any information on the names of others in the photograph that may shed light on her immigration and early years here in the U.S. would be greatly appreciated!
