I have done some research on the Popek family from Mazury, Poland. I'm not sure if they're related to my family or not. My great great grandparents, Jan Bak and Mariana Malec, both came to the U.S. (more specifically, Passaic), from Mazury in 1903, before they were married. I have researched the Popeks because they were A. also from Mazury and B., because Agnes Popek is on the manifest line directly above Mary's sister, Zofia Malec. Agnes came 24 Oct 1904 on The Slavonia, sailing from Trieste. Her destination was given as her sister Marya Popek. I have also found other Popeks from Mazury. Agnieska (age 18) and Maryanna Popek (age 16) both came from Mazury in Feb. 1902. Agnieska was going to Anna Dec, sister of Rozalia. Maryanna was going to her cousin Maryanna Dunyska (sp.). An Aniela Popek, age 15, immigrated in Apr. 1904, going to her sister Marya Popek. I have also searched the 1920 census in Passaic. There was a Sophie Popek, age 26; a Tillie Popek (living w/Sophie), age 33; Walter Popek age 30; K. Popek age 25; Catherine Popek, age 41 and a Frank Popek, age 29. I do not know if all of these Popeks are from Mazury; I simply wrote all their names & ages down. Although the manifest is in crummy condition, it looks like my ggrandmother Mariana Malec also immigrated with a Popek from Mazury (but they had gone to Rotterdam first). Because of this, my guess is that they are from the same town, at the least, if not actually related. Perhaps the Malecs and the Popeks are cousins. I already know that the Malecs were cousins of the Wilks. I also have information on the Decs, the Rialas, the Mikolaycyk's, the Baks and the Skwiras. Perhaps we are somehow related??
