Surnames: Noga; Nogar
My grandfather was Augustyn Noga, born in Trembowla, Galicia on 11/01/1886. He immigrated to the U.S. through Ellis Island in November 1906, and settled in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. In 1911 he changed his surname to "Nogar" and married Felicya Klobukuski.

Shortly thereafter they moved to Reading, PA where he worked as a tailor and ultimately started the very successful Nogar Clothing Manufacturing Co. in 1918. His Americanized name was Augustus, or August Nogar, and he became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1914. He died in Philadelphia in 1936.

According to his death certificate, his parent's names were Stanley (Stanislaw?) Noga and Hedwig Grabourg, and was of Polish descent. I'm looking for any other Nogas or Nogars that may be related, either here in the U.S., in eastern Europe, or anywhere else in the world.

Any information would be wonderful and appreciated.
