I know that my GGmother - Weronika DROZD (KOZMA before marriage, born about 1877, died March 29,1953,US)came through Ellis Iland to US on July 11, 1905. She was about 29 years old and came to her husband - Jan DROZD (or JOSEPH DROST as I've got on a funeral picture, born about 1869, died September 27,1958,US)- who had already been in Jersey City. He came through Ellis Iland to US on July 05, 1904. The ship that Weronika DROZD came to US by was called VADERLAND. Port of Departure - ANTWERP, BELGIUM. Last residence in POLAND (Galicia, AUSTRIA in those times) - NOWOTANIEC (NOROTANIEC as in Manifest document). The ship that Jan DROZD came to US by was called KAISER WILHELM II. Port of Departure - BREMEN, GERMANY. Last residence in POLAND (Galicia, AUSTRIA in those times) - NADOLANY (VODOLANY as in Manifest document). They had children: Maria (Mary), Jozef (Joseph-maybe he died in 1958? not his father), Wladyslaw (?), Helena (Helen),...? Teofil (?) and Stanislaw (Stanislaus) they both stayed in POLAND-(ODRZECHOWA)/AUSTRIA). And Jan DROZD's parents were: Wojciech DROZD and Agnieszka (NIEMIEC before marriage), and Weronika DROZD's parents were Jozef and Brygida (CHRZASZCZ before marriage).
I wonder (my mother Maria DROZD PALYS) what happened next years with Jan and Weronika DROZD,and with their children ? HENRYK PALYS.
For now I would be also interested in following surnames in Poland,Ukraine and USA: PALYS, NIEMIEC, DROZD, KOZMA,MYHAL, DUDKO, DUCIAK, WARCHOL, WROBEL,ZAK.
