The Owczarski family came to Chicago from the Posnan area. I would like to find any siblings or relatives of my husbands grandfather. His grandmother was a Grzelek from Slesin. They married in Poland and came to America in 1906.
The Gierut family is from Osobnica and Jaslo in Galicia. There are many famillies with the name that settled on the south side of Chicago in St. Peter and Paul parish. I have not been able to tie them together because the church records were destroyed during the war.
