Have been trying to research my grandparents for several years...seem to always hit roadblocks; not much info was given to us from them, so I am going by info found on legal documents.
I would really like to find info on my grandfather, Jan Mikina. He listed Wujema, Laskufka, Dabrowe Austria as his place of birth. All I know is that his father's name is Ladislaus and his mother is Angela (Aneila) Luszcz.
My paternal grandfather's name has been changed. I have seen it written mostly as Tkach, but have also seen it as Tkacz. Kamien, Kalucz I believe is now part of the Ukraine. He traveled from Poland to Canada prior to entering the US in 1915. I have no idea why he went to Canada or the ship/route he traveled to get there.
