I am just starting to get into searching my family tree. My mother is Cecelia (Dzioba) Ahern. I believe your mother (Joan ?) is my cousin. I was in the Lawrence area the past 2 weeks and discovered through Aunt Helen (Dzioba) Carson that you have also been working on the family tree of Dzioba.
Aunt Helen shared with me some of the information you left with her - my grandmother's (Josefa Ostrowska Dzioba) passage to America via Ellis Island. What a wonderful find. I also shared this with my brothers & sister, who were all impressed.
I would appreciate any further information you may be willing to share. I understand Josefa & Julia had a brother but I am not sure of his name or when he entered the United States.
Thank you again for passing on the documents to Aunt Helen who in turn passed a copy on to me.
