What comes to mind when you think of the word “great grandma”? Homemade treats? Someone that spoils you? As you will discover in this personal account, great grandma can mean all those things and more—tough, hardworking, faithful, and highly protective. This book is about a great grandmother’s life—from her birth in remote Vazniškiai Village in Lithuania in 1891 to traveling to Baltimore under an assumed name in 1912, to marrying another immigrant from a different social economic class in 1914, to the difficult circumstances that she and her siblings faced in building new lives in the United States. Her story is probably very similar to immigrants from her day but has somehow been forgotten. Through old letters, interviews, and genealogical documents, Iewa Dobaite’s or Grandma Eva’s life is recalled and her legacy to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren becomes clear.
