my grandmother was a lasek. her and her sister came in 1909 from either markowska or mackowka, galicia austria to the united states. her name was marza and her sister' name was kataryzna lasek. (per there immigration papers). their other sister came in 1914 from the same place. this part of austria is now currently poland. they lived in jersey city, nj. kataryzna located in new york city. they all came from a large family of brothers and sisters in poland. another sister or two also came and i am searching for this information. one of them married a irish fellow(white). that's all i know.
