Hi Robert:

I, too, have seen many of the Drabicki's on the Ellis Island list as well. I am sure at least several of them are related to me. If you look at "Arena Sroka" on Ellis Island, (my grandmother), she was accompanied by her cousin Agata Sroka. Agata was joining her brother, Walenty, I believe. Then there is an "Aniela" Drabicka, that married a George Kielar. This Aniela was definitely my grandmom's cousin as well. My mom always talked about her Kielar cousins who lived in Corry, Pa (near Erie). If you trace the names through the Ellis Island list, the connections start to show up. My gr-grandpap was Pawel Sroka and his wife was Kataryna (Drabicka) Sroka. They remained in Poland. I don't know if my grandmom had any brothers and sisters, but on the voyage from Poland to the US, she was also accompanied by a Malgorzata "Bein" or "Bem". They all went to the area around Donora, Pa. My grandparents married in Pittsburgh and lived in the South Side, but my mom also mentioned that her mom's relatives lived in Wilmerding and also Corry, Pa.

I have wedding pictures from the 1920's. My mom said my grandmom was in her cousin's wedding. These pictures are of a wedding party where my grandmom is a bridesmaid. Also, we have some pics of the bride and groom. My mom doesn't know their names. I assume it is Aniela Drabicka and George Kielar but have no proof!
