Bis from Nisko or Pysznica

Posted: 13 Dec 2011 6:19PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Bis, Sroka, Malys.
I am researching Josephine (Josefa) Bis, born 1984, who came to the US around 1914 or 1915. The passenger list has her coming from Pysznica. Her 1976 obituary says she was born in Nisko, which is nearby. Her obit says she came in 1914, but the passenger list is from December 1915. Her obit says her father was John Bis, the passenger list has Jan Bis (same name). According to the family memories, upon arrival, she was going to stay with her sister or sisters in Passaic, New Jersey. The passenger list has her heading for the home of her sister, Klara Sroka of Prospect Ave, Passaic.

I need to establish whether "my" Josephine Bis and Klara (Clara) Sroka (transcribed as Svoka on several documents) in Passaic were sisters, and also looking for her ancestors (Jan Bis) in Pysznica or Nisko.

Josephine married Walenty Malys and moved to Campbell, Ohio in 1919. She died in 1976.
