Frank Zesut & Anna Rurek Wedding Photo

Source: Frank and Anna Zesut Wedding Photo. Photographer Unknown. January 28, 1929. From the Irene Zesut Pardo Collection. Digital scan of original photograph.

The only people in the photo I’ve been able to place names to are Mary Zesut (young girl on the far left), Frank and Anna Rurek Zesut (center) and William Zesut (back right). The rest are presumed to be from Anna Rurek’s family.

A High-Resolution version of this photo can be found in the Photo Archive.

Frank & Anna would go on to have two children; Edward and Irene. Both children would eventually marry and have children of their own. Irene is very passionate about Rzeszut family history and has been an invaluable resource to me.

Copies of CT marriage Licenses are open to the public and a copy of Frank and Anna’s can be ordered from the The City Of Hartford Vital Records Department. The order form for a copy can be reached here.
