My grandfather Wawzeniec (Lawrence) Zelasko came to the United States in the year 1892 leaving his wife & 4 children in Poland until he found work & could send for the family. The part of Poland he came from was then known as Austria Poland, region of Galicia, district of Mielec, diocese of Tarnow,
parish of Czermin, village of Wola Plawska. He settled in West Troy (now Watervliet) Albany Co. N.Y. By 1900 he was able to bring his whole family to join him. Not much is known of his relatives except his father was Simon & mother Maria Lach. We are trying to gather as much information as possible to write a family history. He married Katherine Kilian
daughter of Benedic Kilian & Maria Rzany in 1881 in Poland.
If anyone has any information on this family I would be happy to hear from you. We would like to find the brothers & sisters of he or his wife. There is a town named Zelasko near the village of Plawska Wola in Poland. Cecelia Gorman
