Dolanksy-Vejvoda WeddingDolansky-Vejvoda_1887_WED_PIC_001_(4)
TIME: 11 Oct 1887
PLACE: St. Louis, MO
SUBJECT: Wedding Portrait of Mary Vejvoda & Joseph Dolansky

”Joseph Dolansky, working man of St. Louis, son of Charles Dolansky,  musicians of Breskovir in Bohemia”, married “Mary Vejvoda, handmaid of St. Louis, daughter of Martin Vejvoda, miner of Privetice next Radnice in Bohemia” on October 11, 1887 at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church in St. Louis, Missouri by Jos. Hessoun, Pastor.
Joseph was Catholic, 29 years old and unmarried. 
Mary was Catholic, 23 years old and unmarried.  
Witnesses were Mathia Hriticka, plumber of St. Louis and Vitus Reharek, sexton of St. Louis.*

That’s my mom’s handwriting on the back.
It reads,
“Dad’s Mother & Dad Wedding picture. Mary & Joseph Dolansky ne, Vejvoda”
Do you think I can still have a duplicate made at any time?
