Research notes I am looking for information on my grandfathers family. My great grandfather(Ignacz Niemiec)immigrated from Solina, Poland in 1906. He was single and settled in Philadelphia. My grandfather was born in 1917. I cannot find records of his birth so I do not know his mother’s name. Supposedly, she and her twin daughters died during the flu epidemic and great grand dad was left to raise a toddler on his own. My grandfather ended up in an orphanage in Maryland for a while during his younger days but was reunited with my great grandfather some years later. I have found records from the 1940 census listing them as tenants in a household in Philadelphia. Any ideas about where to try next. Kind of at a standstill.
