My father and I traveled to Zembrzyce and found several family members, visited their homes, cemetery and their church which was under construction. I am interested in learning more about our famiy ancestry. How did you get started with this website. Are you glad you joined? Do you find it useful?

Thanks, Deb USA

Surnames: Danek
I knew a young woman called Jan Danek when I still lived in Chicago, and remember that she was an artist. Her father was a fireman. She and her husband Lewis/Louis Zibas lived on Chicago's north side. They moved to San Francisco during the 1960s. I have lived in London for many years and lost track of her and would love to get in touch if you know where she is. Many thanks in advance!

Surnames: Danek/Adamek
My father Stanislaw Danek was a son of Jan Danek and Joanna Danek (Adamek) from Zembrzyce. I never researched this, but from family stories I suspect that Michal Danek born August 1, 1883 could be my my grandfather's father.

There is also a story in my family about a great uncle who emigrated to USA and came back to retire in Zembrzyce, I don't know his name, but I have seen golden $2.5 coins supposedly brought by this person to Zembrzyce. I live in San Francisco Bay Area, and I visit Poland, including Zembrzyce, roughly every other year. I would be greatful if somebody could add any information to this thread. Also, I may be able to answer some questions regarding our family, if you post them on this board.

Thank you,
Maciej Danek
