Hi Robert; My name is Diane Gawel, I am from the Canadian Gawels as well But my Grandfather's name was Alexander I have no idea of birthdate or date of passing. My grandmother's name was Victoria (Sovia I think). They came to Canada in 1929 or 1930 and settled in Shellmouth, Manitoba. Grampa's brother also came over around the same time, went to the US then to Wayburn, Saskatewan. They had 8 children. If you happen to know anything about my family please let me know.
Thank- you Diane M. Gawel
Also I'm unsure were in Poland they had come from.
