It is funny in a way, my great uncle Adolf was a cobinet maker in Poland and here in the US. He first settled in the Detroit area then moved to the Pittsbyrgh area. Both places he stayed with brothers. He eventually married in Pennsylvania and then moved to Buffalo, where he opened a furniture making business. This eventually evolved into a furniture store that is still operating on Filmore Street, just off Broadway. His garandsons are running the business now. He had a son Thaddeus, who was born in Penn. but died in Lackwanna NY. Adolf had 9 children, 5 boys and 4 girls. His father's name was Sylvester, and they originally came from Zinn, Poznan (Posen ). On my grandfather's immigration sheet, all that he listed was that his last place of living was Gdansk (Danzig). He was also a deserter from the Prussian army. He told me he had seen enough blood so he and his buddies came here. He immigrated in 1890 through God only knows where. I can't find him on the New York ship registers but I keep looking. I am updating my genealogy file on Rosinski and should be done with all my notes and have them typed in by the end of March. Reason: I have about 100 pages of notes and save them for the winter when I go to Florida and work on entering them when I'm there. I do have the names of the brothers in PA and MI. The Galicia Rosinski's are a different clan then ours. There are some Rosinski's still in Poland, but not many. One thing my grandfather used to tell me was that we had royalty in the family, and I used to laugh at that. Laugh no longer as I found out he was right. They go back to 1634 in the Poznan area. They were szchlacty (petty princes) and the royalty was done away with in 1899. They are no more. I have an application pending with the Society of Szchlacty in Poland to verify my lieage. When I hear from them I'll let you know. Good hunting.
