I have only been researching my family history for a short time. My Grandfather, Joseph Skrobisz, was born in 1879. Family stories say that he was in the seminary at some time in his life; I have seen a picture on him in the Prussian army, and apparently he worked in some government capacity before he came to the U.S. in 1912 from Poland.My grandmother, Anna Urban Skrobisz, was born in 1880, married probably within a few years after the turn of the century.then came with 3 children in 1914. I understand my grandmother's father's name was Jan Urban. They were probably from Tarnow, Galacia because wedding pictures I have were reportedly taken there.
