Hi, I'm new to this geneology thing, but I just got my great-grandmother's social security application. Her maiden name was BER or BEER (my grandmother spelled it Ber, but the application has Beer); she lists her mother's maiden name as Maria RODZEN, which is what brought me here.
The birthplace on the application is hard to read. It looks like Wolka Tane??wk??anisko, Poland. I couldn't find such a place in a Polish almanac -- does anyone know what it might be?
