Research notes My great grandfather Anton Wiszniowski(born 1871) immigrated from Galicia to Canada via Hamburg, Germany in 1898 with his wife Anna(born March 11, 1876) and infant son Michal(born June 1, 1897).  They settled near Winnipeg Beach, Manitoba, Canada and had several more children:  my grandfather Frank and twin sister Tillie, Joe, John, Edward that I know of.  Looking for long lost relatives who may have info about Antoni and Anna's first son, born in Galacia, settled in Canada and moved away to the US as a young adult...possibly in Wisconsin or Michigan.  My grandfather passed away in October, 1959 when my father was only 9 and doesn't know anything about his family before coming to Canada. Most of my family is buried in the Polish Pioneer Cemetary near Winnipeg Beach, Manitoba and spelling of their last names varies: Wisniowski , Wishnowski, Weshnoweski.  Any information would be appreciated!
