Classification: Query
Surnames: Karpiak, Szymchak, Barniak
My mother was Ewa Karpiak who emigrated in 1937 to the US from BialaWoda Poland to stay with Uncle Steven Szymchak in Philadelphia Penn. Her father's name was Alexander Karpiak. She was the youngest of his children. I know he was a carpenter and had travelled to the US with his wife before this. I remember my mother saying our grandmother's name was Helen (Szymchak?). She has on sister still living in Poland with one of her children but she is old and frail now/in her 80's. Her name is Anna (Karpiak) Barniak. Her brother resided in Germany; his name was Wasyl Karpiak and he had 5 sons, two of which have passed. Ulrich Karpiak, Rheinhardt Karpiak and Wolfgang Karpiak still reside in Germany. I do not know if this is a connection to your branch of the Karpiak name. Just FYI... contact me if this is a possible line to your side of the Karpiak's.
