Thank you for visiting my guest book. Thanks to those who have signed it, stating who you're looking for, and about your roots. Do you know the province or area in Poland your family was from? Did your relatives immigrate to America, another country, or is your family still in Poland? I love hearing other people's stories. I find it inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Julie

Note:  In the blog title section, under "pages" there is now a "blog title surname index" page. This index I created is for names you write about. Beginning 2014, writing replies in same box as your messages. Hope that helps keep the guestbook simpler. (8 Feb 2014) The messages look right on the website, in my tools. But is merging with the rest of the messages on the blog guestbook. There are temp glitches. If needed, I'll retype separate messages soon.

MessageGood morning,
I live in Poland and I am from neighbourhood of Żywiec. I am historian. I investigate history of our region. Perhaps I found something in archives about people, which you described on blog. I am going to check it carefully. If I will find something interesting, I can send you photo of documents.

From my family I found out that sister of my great-grandfather probably emigrated to USA before World War II. She's name was Jadwiga Kubas. Unfortunately, I don't know where she settled in USA and what she did there. I know only. that she wrote letters and send gifts to my family after the war. I would find this letters. Maybe it will help me to know something about Jadwiga. I have one question - maybe you saw something about this woman? I know that search of information is not nearly possible now. But I leave information about Jadwig, which I know:

Jadwiga Kubas
Date of birth: 27.09.1883
Place of birth: Szare (Milówka); Poland
Father's name: Wawrzyniec
Mother's name: Justyna

Maybe soon I will find something else.

And of course, If you are interested in information from archives - maybe about your family (before 1918), please write to me e-mail.

Agnieszka _ Hi Agnieszka, I will email you. Here is a possibility: A Jadwiga Kubas immigrated, arriving in Ellis Island 11 Oct 1910. I will email you a link to it. It looks like it says she is from Sczare, & it looks like it says she left the father you say. The handwriting is terrible. It says she is going to a cousin in Detroit, I think the name is Karol Capand. I'll see if I can find more and get back to you. Thank you for your offer to look things up! so generous! Warmest Greetings, from Virginia, in the United States.

MessageHi! I am researching my Grandma's family, surname Czarnecki. Her parents were both Polish immigrants who met and married in Chicago in 1908 before moving to their final location in Brant Twp Michigan. Great Grandpa Joseph Czarnecki, (also seen the first name spelled Josef) was rumored to have been from Austria but his WWII draft card (he was 56 yrs old at the time so he never fought in the war) has his birth place as Zywiec Poland 12-28-1885. I am hoping to find some more clues so I can continue with my research.

MessageI have just found out that my grandfather Hnat Demczyszyn was born in Zablocie on the 2 January 1907. He was married before he met my grandmother Zofia Florko (I think this is the correct spelling) who was born in Przemyśl on the 2 January 1912.

They were both previously married before the war and I dont know what happened to my grandfather's first family. The only thing I do know is that my grandmother thought her first family had passed away during the war. She saw her first husband and daughter in Lviv during 1941 or 1942. She didnt approach them as she was pregnant with my mother to Hnat.

She found out later that they may have immigrated to Canada.

My grandfather immigrated to Australia in 1949 and he had a sister who also immigrated to Australia. I know she had a son who went into the mility but I dont know what there names were.

I would love to contact any family that I have in Europe and Australia. I would like to also know if my grandparents had any other brothers and sisters and what happened to their first ____ Wow, your family moved far which is hard trying to track down/ reunite with family. I'm glad you signed the guestbook and hope that someone finds your post. Your surnames will be in my name index, under the "pages" part of my blog. Best wishes in reuniting soon! -Julie

Messagemy surname is uncommon, I know my grandfathers family came here from poland but im not sure when, I like to know the history of my 2/8/2014-I highly recommend trying, free records transcribed by worldwide volunteers. At least one million records are uploaded a month, sometimes 5-6. I went to, clicked on search and just typed in "Kremkoski". 16,985 results! Some you might be interested outside of the US: Hungary Catholic Church records, Poland-Tarnow church records, Slovakia church & Synagogue books, & Germany Baptisms. In the US, there are 201 Naturalization records in IL, & there are a lot of Ellis Island records. These European collections go from 1550-1900. So I think there's a lot of potential to find family there. Best wishes!
