Piotrowski, Gawlik, Pietruszka, Filipiak, Bobola, Makuch, Glud, Gubala
I have been researching my family for about 15 years now, off and on, however I am now ready to start with my research over in Poland. This excites me the most, I only wish I was able to do it before my Babcia had passed away.
My Grandfather was Leon Gawlik from Moszczenica,, Gorlice, Malopolska, Poland. He came to America in 1899 to join his other brothers already in Massachusetts. He later moved to New York. I have found his birth records and have traced the Gawlik's to 1776.My other g grandfather was Jozef Aleksander Pietruszka. He was from Szczucin, Dabrowa, Malopolska, Poland. After he arrived in America from the Port of New York and he took the name Piotrowski, after he was naturalized..
My g grandmother was Helena Makuch Piotrowski. She came to America in 1906 with her sister Mary. She later went back to Poland for a visit in 1926 and it lists her birth place as:Łęka Szczucinska, Dabrowa,Malopolska, Poland.I am currently trying to find her. My other ggrandmother was Katarzyna Filipiak . I now very little of her life in Poland. I hope this journey helps me to find out more about her.
I am excited and willing to correspond and help others too.
