I'm trying to find out more about my father's family.
So far, pretty much all I know is that they came from these two places. I haven't even been able to find out when his family members emigrated from Poland.
My great grandfather was Josef Frank Obacz and was born in Trzebownisko, 15 March 1890. While looking at official documents his last name was spelled several different ways after arriving here: Obtz, Obetc, Obacz, Obazz and Obetts.
Once here, he met and married Bronislawa Borek. Again, I don't know when she came to America, but she was born in Staromiescie, 03 May 1890. I am not sure, but I believe her parents were John and Catherina Borek.
If anyone has information about either of these people or their families, I would appreciate your help very much.
