Hi, it looks to me Isidor is from Zulowka,went to Greenpoint in Brooklyn NY, to his brother Stanislaw Skrobiato at No. 108
Dayport ctr. Brooklyn NY. The ship is Waslerland from Antwerp Aug. 11 1906. I hope I am of some help.

Wincenta was a Domestic came from Kruglo, came to Long Island NY to brother Winzent M., West Ave. Long Island Canal and Rhode Island.

Teofila was a servant from Grodvno, going to Central Falls, perhaps Rhode Island?, to wife Zofra Kobielski from Grodvno.Came on the Moordam.

Frank was single, a laborer,could read and write, was from Suchowala, is Russian, going to brother in law J. Shabichy or Y. Shabicky in Maspeth Long Island N.Y.

Im very frustrated as I cannot find anything of my gg gr father Joseph Sielski from Pyzdry poland born 1861. I hope you have better luck than I.

Good luck!

Jennifer Sielski

Thank you!
It took me forever to track the Polish side of my family down. I actually gave up for a while. Use wildcards and alternate spellings and the broadest search parameters you can think of. Don't give up just yet!

Yw! I think I finally have a breakthrough. I found Joseph Sielskis son on the Pennsylvania manifest from Peisern, which is Pyzdry in polish, and all the dates match up. I have given up for months and have picked it up again too. Im learning a lot, very much fun to me!

If anyone is familiar with the family of Joseph Sielski frm Peisern Pyzdry poland, Id love to hear from you for a bit of insight into my family and background.
