there's a good chance the Michael Bielec you speak of is my father. born in and a long time resident of Detroit, he's 91 now and living outside of Pt Huron, MI. I'll be traveling up in a couple of weeks to visit and celebrate my mom's 90th birthday.
I had planned to talk to them about my paternal grandparents' emmigration from Poland around 1915. I do know my grandfather, Frank Bielec, spent some time as a lumberjack up in the northern lower penninsula. I'll let you know what I find out.
