172. Katarzyna Kowalska - Sailed to NYC on the Kronprinz Wilhelm
I am looking to find out information about my grandmother. She was born in Poland . The birth certificate that we received in 1966 spells her name as Catharina Kielbasa born 2/10/1896. Her mothers name was Zofie Kowalska and her fathers name was Stanislas Kielbasa and she was from Woznica Gorna, Galicia Poland. However her marriage certificate states her name is Katarzyna Kowalska . When she was alive she said her certificate from Poland had the wrong birthdate. She was adamant that she arrived in the United States when she was sixteen years old. I looked up her information on the Ellis Island website and found a possible match under Katar…yna Kielbasa ,with the appropriate age arriving in New York on the Kronprinz Wilhelm 10/17/1905.This ship sailed from Bremen Germany?? And from her birth certificate she would be the wrong age. She was also adamant that she arrived when the Cherry blossoms were blooming. I have tried to write to Diecezja Przemyska OB.LAC Dec Brzozow Par Gwaznica Gorna,Galicia Poland twice with no response. She said she came from a very prosperous family, they had many horses and many acres of land. She was the only daughter to Zofie and Stanislas and she had five or six brothers. She said her land was taken by the Germans and her brothers were sent to some work camps. I have very little to go on so any help would be appreciated. Thank You

166. Kosiorek (or Koserek, Kosorek) - Warszawa
My late mother in law was born Felicja Henrika Kosiorek (surname is different on various documents), in Warszawa, Poland on April 21, 1929. She was a teenager when she was imprisoned in the concentration camp (not sure if it was Auschwitz or another). She never spoke of her horror in much detail, but I do know that her children, including my husband, would like to know more, including if there are any members left. But, I do not know if she was Jewish or Polish. I am assuming the latter to be correct. As mama is no longer with us and was never to utter many words regarding her experience or family history, I am searching sort of blindly. Do you know if the name is of Polish or Jewish descent? I know she was a Catholic until her death. She went on to marry an American soldier named Robert Woolfolk Brasington Jr., of Montgomery, Alabama, United States on September 24, 1947 in Stuttgert, Germany. They had 4 children, Robert III., Leon, Richard and Felicja. They are both deceased now. My parents-in-law went for summer visits many times to Poland, so we are assuming there was family who had survived. My husband has long dreamt of knowing his family and their history. I long to help him realize his dream. Any information one might be able to provide, would be most appreciated. Thank you in abundance for the service you provide. Blessings to all....

My grandmother then came to live in England, my mother was 4 years old before she joined my grandmother in England.
