The Chmielewski Farm in Lithuania

On Wednesday, 24 October 2007, our cousin Vitas drove Liliana and me to the farm where our grandmothers were born. The farm is located in the small village of Likiškės, just to the northeast of Alytus, Lithuania.

The buildings on the farm have fallen into disrepair, although the land around the buildings is still cultivated. In the middle of the row of trees in the background of the first photo below is a pear tree from which one of the neighbors claimed he stole pears when he was young.

    How wonderful to be able to walk the land of your ancestors!

  2. When I was younger, I never imagined I would ever find the places my ancestors lived, much less visit those places, Lee! The experience was incredible.
