Research notes My name is Karen Kania-Forehand.  I was born in 1957.  My maiden name is Kania and my granfather's ancestors settled in the Washington County Illinois area in the 1870's.  My great grandmother was a Noncek.  My grandmother's side of the family settled in the Chicago area.  Her maiden name was Tenczar and her mother's maiden name was Januscek.  They came to the states in the mid 1890's.  I have no information about where they came from in Poland.  I am not very versed in genealogy yet but I'm learning.  I need to make some field trips to obtain documents and hopefully will be able to at least get an idea of what part of Poland my family lived.
