My father's family, Wolak (we spell it Wallak) and Bienik both have very large families but due to deaths of parents at one time or another, are spread out over America. Both families immigrated in the 1880s (circa) and settled in the Rice or St. Cloud Minnesota areas.
I am interested in their origins (Tarnow and Dubrowka) - am hampered by the language, of course! Would love to know about them as well as their neighbors. Another prize would be to meet living relatives!! or those who knew them.
