All surnames Smith, Kowalski, Schmidt
All places Lublin, Wojciechow
Research notes My ancestors lived in the village of Wojciechow in the Lublin Province
The village is famous for its blacksmithing traditions so the surnames of my ancestors are actually meaningful! Before the Second World War My grandparents emigrated to the United States where they adopted the name Smith
My goal is to fill in the missing gaps in the Kowalski/Schmidt family tree, and to find any relatives still living in Poland.
In June 2010, I visited Poland and went for a day trip to Wojciechow where I found myself in the middle of the Blacksmiths' Festival! Here is the link to the Wojciechow community website: http://www.gokwojciechow.pl/
