Hi, I am Helene Kaplan. I found more information regarding my grand father. His name was Berk Markiewicz. He was born around 1870 in Poland. He is descendent of the union of an illigitimate daughter of Alexandre Walewski, whose name I do not know, and a noble named Markiewicz from Poland (small nobility). Alexandre Walewski was the illigitimate son of Napoleon Bonaparte and Marie Laczynska (Walewska. My grand father came to France around 1886. To the best of my knowledge, they never emigrated to the US.
