My grandfather was from Katowice, Poland, Peter William Kaleta b.1873. He emigrated to Australia & we know very little about his family in Poland. We recently found a letter written to him in German from his nephew, this led me to find that at the time of his birth that part of Poland was actually in Germany. I believe he had several siblings & only one I know the name of for sure, his sister Pertoneli who's married name was Martzik, she lived in Konczyce, Katowice in 1939 & at the time she was in her 80s.
Peter's parents were Yan or Jan Kaleta & Rosalin Rudka & at some time Yan re-married & has a few step-children. One part of this family were named Schewiola & lived in Hindenburg, Germany. It is from Florian Schewiola that the letter to my grandfather is written & he had a brother named Johann.
As I know very little about my Kaleta family, it is quite possible that some may have emigrated to the USA.
I hope this may ring a bell with someone out there.
