Hi Larry. Thanks for your response. I actually have 2 Great Grandmothers with the last name of Szwedo.One is my maternal great-grandmother and one is my paternal great-grandmother.(No relation between the two)
My maternal great-grandmother's maiden name was Katarzyna Szwedo born 9/22/1897 and died 1/17/1975. Her mother's name was Maria Owsiak and I don't know her father's first name. She had a sister named Aniela and a brother named Franciszek. She married Stanislaw Kolodziej and they had my grandmother, Emilia Kolodziej along with 3 other children, Josef, Jan and Maria which died at the age of 3 from TB.
My paternal great-grandmother's name was Aniela Szwedo (not Katarzyna's sister, above). I don't know much about her at all except that she married my great-grandfather, Michal Pelic, born 1872 which came to the U.S. via the ship, Kaiser Wilhelm in 1910 at the age of 38. They were from and married in Poland but my grandmother, Zofia Pelic was born in the U.S.on 12/8/1920. A few of her siblings were also born in the U.S.. They then moved back to Poland but I don't know in what year. Please let me know if any of this sounds familiar or even if it doesn't, please let me know either way, ok? Thanks so much again. Alina
