Her last name was Augustyn and she came from Galicia, Poland. I sent a CD with a bunch of old pictures to your cousin Kathy before Charlie died.
I am Pearl's oldest daughter. Which one was your grand-parent: Steve, Walter, Stanley, Andy, Al or Sophie? Couldn't be Kate because I didn't think she had any children.
I haven't been able to trace down too much info in Poland on Busha (that's what we called her) because she didn't have or even remember her birthday. All she remembered was that it was in the Spring.
It appears that her coat-of-arms (herb in Polish) was Godzimbia. I have a color copy of it if you want me to email a scanned copy to you. I also have the translated legend of our ancient ancestor who were originally awarded the arms (herb) by the king.
Use my home email address to reach me and I will share with you what I have in research materials. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the time she emigrated to America Poland had been divided between Germany, Russia and Austria. She was from the part that was given to Austria, but we are not Austria, it was only under Austrian occupation.
Hope to hear from you.
