Looking for any info. on my mother's family.
My grandfather, Andrias Ratajski, immigrated between 1880 and 1890 from Germany. His citizenship papers show his name as "Rotazski". In 1890 he lived in the Kensington section of Phila. and worked as a laborer.
He married my gm. Katarryna Plachta (or Planta) prior to 1884. Their children:
John 1884, Frances (Conan) 1886, William 1888, Francis J. X. 1890, Stanley 1892, Theodora (Nolan) 1894, Helen (Bradley) 1897.
Andrias died in 1901.
