My immediate goal is gather information from my paternal grandparent families of Albert Plewniak (abt 1890-1945) and Mary Kieras (abt 1890-1945), both probably coming to the U.S. in the late 1800's from Poland and residing in the Northeastern Illinois area. Maternal grandparent names attempting to trace are Martin Marek (1888-1971), John Dybel (1871-1936)and Regina Murzyn (1874-1940), all probably coming to the U.S. from Poland in the late 1800's and settling in the Northwest Indiana area.
From my wife's side, I'm trying to trace the roots of the Maria Berlakovich (1909-1989) and Csenar families residing in Austria/Germany.
I currently have about 150 names in my database and am curiousabout how much I could build on it. I would appreciate any help and am willing to share my information.
