Thank you for the information. None of the names ring any bells but then I only have a family tree from the Ratajczaks side with maiden names only of my grand and great grand mothers. I am also in touch with a few Ratajczaks in the US (I am in Europe) and so far we have not made connections either. However the nice thing is that the Ratajczaks I am in touch with have become firm friends and because we search for a common goal we have also become family (and though we are some distance apart, we have met on both sides of the Atlantic!)
I will not erase your message so that I can keep it as a reference point - if the names come up elsewhere then I will certainly let you know so that you can trace that line.
