I am sorry to read about your loss as I have only come across this message post.
I am wondering if you can help me as I am just starting out researching my family history. My mother's name was Eufrozyna Furdyczka (one of 4 Furdyczka children - Maria, Stefan & Jwan (John)). Her parents were Mikolaj (Michael) Furdyczka and Katarzyna Metelska. After Mikolaj passed away in 1922-24?, Katarzyna married again to Micholaj (Michael) Kiciak.
I think they also lived in the same village as Strilbechi, although the spelling could be slightly different.
My mother married a Jozef Wawrzyniak before they came to Australia in 1949.
Do you have any information (relatives) which could shed some light on the Michael Furdyczka (and others) in your Peter Flen obituary? I hope you can help me with this quest.
Thank you for your time and efforts
