Jan Karcz/Korc, my ancestor, was born in Plawo in 1895 to Joseph and Agnes. I think Ludwika and Mary were his sisters. He arrived in the U.S. in 1912, came to MA in 1913, and made his way to Lawrence a few years later where he also worked in the mills.
I'm still trying to figure out what was going on with the last names. It appears the family was using both in the old country?? Some records are under one name, others under the other. Do you have any insight into that?
