Hi, I am searching for information on my great grandparents. Philip Yasek (possibly spelled Jasek)was born in about 1887 in Lipowa. His parents were Albert and Barbara Yasek. I found him on a passanger list which said he arrived in Canada in May of 1906 and was from Galecia. I also found a canadian census showing that he came from Poland, spoke Slavic, was R. Catholic and received his Canadian naturalization papers in 1913.
Pauline (Paulina, Apolonia) Bielic was born about 1896 she came to Canada in 1911 and they married between 1911 - 1913. She had a sister also born in Poland Francisca born about 1892 Pauline and Philip had 4 children together Helen, John, Frank and Victoria. Her parents were John Biellec and Catherine Houkus also spelled Katherine, Kartugna. I believe they were living in Radziechow before emigrating.
