The William in the title is quite possibly my great-great uncle. I am looking for possible descendants to clarify his attachment to my tree, or any possible record. I have his name and location from family correspondence...
c1890s, 5 Ziemkiewicz siblings came to the US. Four girls (Josephine Wawrzynski/Warren, Amelia Dlugolecki, Helen Wawrzynski/Warren, and Helena Kaminski - yes they have similar names). William was the fifth and youngest sibling; all were married.
William (also knows as Wladyslaw) was born c1873 in Poland, married Sofia Parcinska c1893, they arrived in the US c1895.
Their children were:
William Sylvester b1902
Josephine (m Walter M Chmura by 1940 - they are all over city records) b1907
I have William and Sofia tracked through 1940 in the Census and his death in 1946. I am tracking the rest...
MY PROBLEM - I have tried numerous times through snail mail to contact living members of this family, and I just have to assume that I have either not found one or the right one, because over a 10-year period, nothing has come of the letters.
I geniuinely wish to share the tree that I and cousins have filled out, and compare notes on what was known of the family.
