Surnames: BIEL, LASAK
I am, and have been for a number of years, searching for the birthplace of Jan Biel, my mother's father. He was supposedly born in 1882 in Poland.
I know he had a couple of sisters and a brother, but I don't know who they were or what their names were.
His wife, Agneszka Lasak, came from a small town in southern Poland.
They were married here in October 1906, in Salem, Mass.
As I was told, there were relatives that lived there, but I was never told WHO.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My name is Stephen Lasak (34). I have been researching my family's genealogy over
the Internet and I came across your name. I am looking for information
about my grandfather Ondrej Jozef (Andrew) Lasak. Below is a list of
information that I do have on my grandfather.

Birth date: (recordings of three different birth dates)
Birth Certificate: Nov. 28, 1890
Declaration of Intention: Nov. 30, 1893
Death Certificate: Nov. 30, 1894

Born: Klin, Czechoslovakia (near Namestovo)

Parents: Stanislava Lassak and Katheriny Lassak (Stopkova)

Sister: Mary Lasak Married Joseph Sojka. Lived in North Riverside, ILL. (USA)

Brothers: In my grandfathers obituary column in the Coatesville Record
Newspaper(Pennsylvania, USA) states that he had three brothers living
in Klin, Czechoslovakia: Matthew, Joseph, and Anthony. I do not have any
information on them.

Wife: Johanna (Jennie) Karc on Feb. 16, 1919

Andrew immigrated to this country from Klin, Czechoslovakia at the age of
18. He boarded the ship Kaiser Wilhelm on May 30, 1910 from Bremen,
Germany. The ship arrived in New York on or about June 10, 1910. His alien
number was 3-129036. He took a train from New York to Coatesville,
Pennsylvania USA (I have the original travel contract that Andrew made
that gave me this information). Why he came to Coatesville Pa. is unknown. He
must have had friends of the family who immigrated to this area.

Any information you could provide on any Lasak/Lassak genealogy would be
greatly appreciated. You may contact me at my e-mail at
work( at home (

All the Best.

Last week I finally found my grandfathers
baptism record. His mother was Tekla Biel. He
was born in Lubasz Poland, about 20 miles
north of Tarnow. From what I found it looks
like Tekla was born about 1850. Unfortunately
they arrived in Lubasz about 1865 from somewhere
else. There may be a connection, but I don't
know where to look next. Do you have a town
in Poland where the Biel family came from?

Surnames: LASAK, BIEL
I don't have a town or city for the Biel Family. My grandfather's name was Jan.
I have found a town for Agneszka Lasak (my grandmother)(dau. of Kasper and Kataryna Lasak) who was born in Dalastowice (a village). It is in the same area as Tarnow.
Szczucin is the nearest post office to the village of Dalastowice. Dabrowa is the name of the administrative district for Dalastowice.
My aunt told me once, when we spoke, that her mother and father were from the same village but I haven't been able to ascertain this "assumption".
Please email me if you are able to find anything and I will do the same, although I usually only work on my 'tree' during the winter.

Lubasz, where my grandfather was born, is about two west of Szcucin. Looks like there is a chance the Biel's in our families are related. Here is some more information on Tekla Biel. She married my great grandfather Nicodemus Motyl about 1870, town unknown. Died May 21, 1893 in Lubasz Poland from pneumonia at the age of 43. Makes her birth year 1850. Town where she was born is unknown. Tekla's parents are Joseph Biel and Catherin Piorun. Tekla parents information I found on my grandfathers baptism record.

Again, it looks like we may have a connection. Email me directly at Send me your address.

Dear Stephen,
My grandmother, Agnieszka Lasak, came from Poland prior to 1906.
She married Jan Biel, on 5 Oct 1906 in Ipswich, Mass.
She was from Delastowice, Poland. This is a village in the county of Tarnow, not far from Dabrowa.
She was born 1 Jan 1884.
Could she be a relative to you?
I know that she had sisters named Josephine and Caroline. I think that she had a brother but, as yet, have not been able to confirm this.

My Great Grandmother was Maria Lasak (1885 - 1978). She was married to Jezef Salamanowicz (1891 - 1949)They had two daughters Jennie and Agness. I'm afraid that I have no information that dates back before Maria Lasak. Hopeing that the name might sound familiar to someone?
Thank you

My grandfather Joseph Lasak came from Delastowice. I went to the graveyard there. It is a very small farming village. there is a church with a graveyard a small walk away. There are Lasak and I also believe Biel gravestones (with enamel photos of the people). The Lasaks are with a soft L (a slash through it).
