Research notes
My grandmother, Mihalena Waszkiewicz Biblis arrived in the United States on September 4 1913 on the Carmania from Liverpool to New York. 
The ship's register lists her previous address as Vilna. In all my searching, I found that her husband Boleslaw Biblis arrived in New York on the California travelling from Glasgow on June 2, 1913. That ship's register states that my grandfather was meeting up with his brother-in-law Vikoten Waszkiewicz. I assume they meant Victor or Witold. In any case, this is all I can find that links my family to the Waszkiewicz surname. 

I knew that after my grandparents arrived in the states, they lived amongst relatives in Libertyville, IL before heading out to Western PA for work in the steel mills. I can't verify if it was family on my grandmother's side or grandfather's side.
