I am searching for information concerning my grandfather, Joseph Mrozowski(Mruz, Mroz)who gave his parents names as Thaddeus Mrozowski and Cornnelia Mozelewska from Lomza, Poland. My grandfather was born on July 29, 1883. He left Lomza after the village he lived in was overrun by the Cossacks. He made his way via Germany to the US. His brother and sister were also in the US in 1903 when he married my grandmother in Camden, NJ. He was living in Philadelphia,PA at that time.

My great-grandfather kinds did the same thing except he went to Pittsburgh, Pa. to live with an aunt(BURSCH), but what I find interesting is several of his siblings later moved their families to Philadelphia then to New Jersey. I have suspected the was either family there or their jobs took them to these towns.

Surnames: Mroz, Kaminski, Samsel, Maciora
My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Rosalia Mroz; my grandfather's name was Walenty Kaminski. They would have been born in the 1880s. Both were from the Lomza area--Myszyniec/Niedzwiedz. Either or both families were related to Samsel and Maciora famlies, same area. Rosalia and Walenty settled in New Britain, CT. Possible link?

Go to this site: http://www.telefony.arteq.org/. Click on PODLASKIE. Type in Mroz. In all of the area of this province, there is one person listed named Wojciech Mroz in the village of Lapy-Lynki.

Kaminski is a more common name, so you would want to know in what village he was born. Knowing that they were from the Lomza area is some help, but not much because Lomza is not only a city, but is also a county by the same name and there used to be a province with this name.

Since Mroz is not a common name in the area, I suggest writing to Wojciech to see if he is your cousin. He may be the last of the family.

Do you know your grandparents' place of birth? I'd help you to locate a proper parish for your grandparents. The vital records of Myszyniec from the 1880's have not been preserved up to now.

Niedziwiedz belonged to the Myszyniec Parish. If your grandparents had got married in Poland (Myszyniec), you would be able to obtain their marriage certificate. The marriage certificate should show their parents' names, so it;s probable find their parents' death certificates. Do you know if any of your grandparents' siblings remained in Poland?

I just found my gradmother's brother gave his town as Lomza, Poland. They came to America in 1908. Settled in
Brooklyn, NY. Their name was "Dolin"
I am sure that was changed. There were three brothers:
Max, Harry,Abram,my Grandmother,Tillie who was the oldest.
Hinda was another sister who stayed in Poland,died in WWII.
