My husband's grandfather came from Poland to Baltimore, Maryland. He lived in Philadelphia, PA for a short time, moved to Baltimore, Maryland and later in life to Sabillasville, Maryland. He married in the USA in 1911, became a naturalized citizen in 1925 and changed his surname from Julius Ratasiewicz to Julian Ratas. His wife was Agatha (Agata) Gongalewska/Gongalewski. Both came from a town in Poland called Prelomka orPrilomka.
