Wdowiak families of Oswego NY (from Galicia)

Posted: 11 Oct 2005 8:34AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Wdowiak, Doviak
I am looking for information about the Wdowiak (Doviak) families that settled in the Oswego, NY area. As far as I can tell, there were at least 5 brothers that came over in the early 1900s from Galicia (possibly a place called Brzezew). They were Marcin (Martin), Andrew, Frank, Thomas, and Casimer (Kaiser). Four of the brothers and their families lived at 64 and 66 Hart Street on the west side of Oswego according to the 1920 and 1930 Census.

The only brother found in the Ellis Island records was Marcin...he was listed as coming over around 1910 to meet up with a "brother" named Feliks Bladek. Marcin's mother's name was listed as Marramia Wdowiak.

I have a lot of information for the brothers and their descendants, but am looking now for more information on their ancestry. Any help would be great!
