Research notes
My grandfather was Thomasz Mierzwa b. 20 Dec 1885 in Zaczernie, near Reszow, Podkarpackie, Poland and immigrated to the United States about 1905. His parents were Mattin and Margaret Mierzwa. He had three brothers named Walter, Vincent and Stanley. He also had three sisters named Victoria, Marcella and Mary. I think all of his brothers and sisters immigrated to the US and settled in the Chicago, Ill area. He married my grandmother Wiktorya Chrzaszcz abt 1913 in West Virginia, USA. She was b. abt 1891 in Bukowsko, near Sanok, Podkarpackie, Poland. She immigrated from Poland and arrived in the United States February 10, 1907. A search of the Ellis Island records list her as a passenger on the British ship Westerland which departed from Antwerp, Belgium. The ship manifests show that she was traveling alone at the age of 18. She had two sisters (unknown) and a brother Paul. I would appreciate any help on locating information about any of these people in Poland or here in the US.
