Research notes My Grandmother, Julia Forys, came over to America when she was about 10 years old with her Mother, Anna Forys.  The Ellis Island record I found says that they were coming to Josef Forys who was their Father/Husband.  Anna and Julia's last place of residence is listed as Yanuszkowice.

I have no record so far as to when my Grandfather, Frank Szarek, came to America.  His name may have been spelled as Frank, Franciszek or another similar spelling.

Frank Szarek was born on 24 Dec 1893 or 1894.  He died in Feb 1967 in Kent Co., Rhode Island.

Julia Forys Szarek was born in Oct 1896 and died on 01 Mar 1978 in Kent Co., Rhode Island.

Frank and Julia married and raised their family in West Warwick, Kent Co., Rhode Island.  Their address while living in RI was

Frank & Julia Szarek
21 Pennsylvania Ave
West Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island

They had 7 children
Theodore J. Szarek   b. 19 Feb 1916, d. 22 Nov 1997
Mary Szarek (Padula)  b.  Feb 17 1917, d. living ?
Josephine Szarek (St. Jean)  b. 1919, d. living ?
Raymond F. Szarek  b. 26 Mar 1921, d. 27 Apr 2013

Frances Szarek (Begos)  b. 22 Sep 1929, d. 01 Jan 2006

I've also found a record which lists Anna Forys as the daughter of Michal and Anna Gorstka.

Any help in finding siblings, parents and/or grandparents for Frank and Julia is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Patty Szarek
