Karen, I am trying to research a man named Pawel Serafin who lived in Watervliet, NY and also Troy, NY. I believe he was married to a woman named Ludwiga. Pawel Serafin was the individual to whom my grandmother and her sister, as well as a possible brother, were all going when they entered at Ellis Island. Pawel was from the village of Gawluszowice, near Mielec, in SE Poland. Is this part of your family, perhaps?
