Hi - I am looking form information on my husband's maternal grandfather Jozef Wolan. He arrived in the US in 1905 from Wesola, on the Silvia. He was of Austrian-Polish decent. We have no information on him for the years between 1905, his arrival and around 1921 whne he married Helena Kusko (Hsuka). Helena arrived here and resided with her sister in PortVue/McKeesport area, her sister's married name is Tatarzyn. We have about 15 unaccounted years for Jozef and beleive these years were also in the McKeesport/PortVue area, as to that is where they married and met. Jozef was born in 1885, and died in 1931 when his oldest living child to Helena was just 6. Helena was told to get rid of any of Jozef's belongings and papers when she married again, because it would be bad luck. Therefore, any papers as to his life prior to 1921 was lost. Helena spoke very little of Jozef and my mother-in-law know nothing of her father. Because of his age and the many years after arriving in this country, it is very possible there was another family of his prior to Helena. If anyone hasany info on Wolan's in the McKeesport, PA area and want to share - please post.

Thank you
