I'm trying to develop some information on my father's father:Joseph Marczak.
Born 21 March 1888 in Poland.A relative earlier called his birthplace Calais (perhaps Kalisz?) though when he emigrated to the USA 6 March 1910 he listed Zbize Russia as his last residence.On the ship manifest he's listed as heading Milwaukee Wisconsin to stay with his brother in law - Josef Hack.
Joseph Marczak spent his life in Milwaukee and married Victoria (nee Szczypiorski) Zacher.He died 20 January 1948.
Joseph Marczak's parents were John Marczak and Victoria (nee Rabolinski) Marczak.Joseph cited his mother as reference on the steamship manifest - also living in Zbize.
I realize that Marczak is a fairly common name in Poland, but I'm hoping someone on the forum will be able to help.
