This is a photograph of my great-granduncles taken about 1888. These five boys are the sons of Joseph Adametz and Barbara Schneider, cigar makers from Bohemia who lived in New York City tenements before removing to Detroit, Michigan. That is Oscar in the middle, Joseph up in front, Charles in back, William standing on left and Louis sitting on the right.



Struggling nineteenth century immigrants expected their children to contribute, and all of the Adametz children worked at cigar making. Their stories are told in the newly published book, History of Joseph Adametz of Kutná Hora and Allied Families, copies available for sale here.
