I found the following and thought this might interest the relatives or descendants of these women.

The Cleveland State University Library has an interesting online exhibit: The Ethnic Women of Cleveland Oral History Project has both audio and typed transcripts of interviews of the following women, conducted in 1986:

Mary Rizun Fedak
Olga Sashko Gaydos
Margulia Lantsman German
Ann Cherepacha Hankavich
Helen Bernice Olszewski Karpinski
Marie Adamczyk Kroll
Grace Knistautas Kudukis
Milda Gulbinskas Lenkauskas
Bertha Struzynski Modrzynski
Ilona Majoros Palasics
Eleanor Grabowski Popek
Helen Repuzynsky Pukach
Genevieve Ziemba Sandej
Anna Furijes Spodink
Sonja Franz Unger

Here's the link:

The interviews are very detailed -- most are over twenty pages long, detailing the womens' backgrounds, lives, families, etc.

There are more interviews in the project, but these are the ones online.

I'm not related to any of these women --- just thought I'd share the link.
