Tom Attreau's wife (Above) is actually my cousin. Here is what I have found out so far. Of our particular branch of Kaleta's settled in Chicago in the early 1900's. My dad's father Charles Kaleta was born in 1908 in Chicago.
Kaleta is a Prussian name and much more common in that area of Poland/Germany that used to be Prussia. In fact, there are several high ranking government officials in Poland with the surname Kaleta.
To the best of my knowledge, most of the Kaleta's in this branch can be traced back to Chicago and Calumet City, IL. I have crossed paths with a few other Kaleta's over the years and we have never been able to tie ourselves together. Although I have never been able to trace our family history beyond our American roots.
