I do hope that someone can help me make a connection here. I'm so tired of this brick wall that's about ready to fall over and crush me. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Patty Szarek
I am looking for any siblings, parents and/or grandparents for Frank Szarek from the Galicia area of Poland. The death index lists his birth as 24 December 1893 but all other records are 24 December 1894.
My grandfather, Frank Szarek came to America where he met my grandmother, Julia Forys (also from Poland). They married and lived in West Warwick, Kent Co., Rhode Island.
They had 7 children all born in Kent Co., Rhode Island - Theodore J Szarek - born 1916 Mary Szarek (Padula) - born 1917 Josephine Szarek (St. James) - born 1919 Raymond F Szarek - born 1921 Felix Joseph Szarek - born 1923 Frances J Szarek (Begos) - born 1928 Stasia Szarek (Strzepek) - born 1934

I've also found a record of who I believe is Julia Forys Szarek's mother, Anna Forys. This record shows Anna's parents as Michal and Anna Gorstka. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F8HD-4BB
