Am looking for relatives of Mr.& Mrs. George Malek , 3211 Wallace St, Steger, IL (address as of 1973) - there were corresponding with my ggrandmother - Lydia Buseman. I belive Mrs. Malek may have been a relative of my grandma's- have come to a deadend trying to find relatives of hers so I am checking correspondence that she had at the time of her death.

I was looking through the Malek name and came across your message. George Malek was my uncle. His wife's name was Mildred. They lived at the address you have posted. Please feel free to contact me. I did not know my Aunt Mildred's family. We exchanged Christmas cards until about 2 or 3 years ago and even though I continue to send her cards, the cards have stopped coming to us.

I am so sorry for the delayed reply. Do you happen to know what your Aunt's maiden name was?

I was just notified that you had written. I have not gone to Ancestry for quite a while since there didn't seem to be much of a reply and I had noticed that you had posted a few years earlier.

My Aunt Mildred's maiden name was Mildred Weiss. She lived in South Chicago Heights, IL. She and my Uncle George are both deceased now. They are buried in a cemetery in Monee, IL. It is the Skyline cemetery

I am most excited about your Aunt's last name being Weiss. My great grandmother was Lydia H. Weiss Buseman. She was born in Poland and as I understand the story (from her many years ago) she came to the USA with her 2 brothers (Fred and Julius) and 1 sister (Christina). I believe that they started out in PA and then moved to IL with my grandmother coming to Kansas where she eventually married and died. I am hoping that Fred or Julius was your Aunt's father. This is the first break that I have had in trying to track down any relatives from the Weiss side.

I have been trying to think of anyone that I know who might know the family. I knew where she lived before marrying my uncle. They married later in life. There were no children.
The people I can think of are either deceased or I do not know there whereabouts. I will continue to think about this and try to be of some help to you. I do have an Aunt that is still living but is quite elderly who is the sister to my uncle and she may be able to be of some help although I am not sure about that. If you would like to stay in touch, you can write to my e-mail address: polishmama@LSOL.net or we can continue to go this route.
You might find some help through the Cook County Courthouse in Chicago. You also might find some help through the Will County courthouse located in Joliet, IL. Am not sure where she was born, but when I knew here she lived in Cook County but at a point that is located very near Will County so think that either of them might help. I would start with Cook County Courthouse. I don't want my Aunt's name and address put on this so would need to be in touch through another avenue. I live in Wisconsin which is about 4 hours north of my home area.

I didn't mention this in the last e-mail, but it was interesting to know of the family coming from Poland. My Malek grandparents also came from Poland. My Dad and one of my Aunts were born in Poland. The rest of the children, including my Uncle George, were born in this country but spoke the Polish language very fluently. I was not aware of the fact of my Aunt Mildred also being Polish. So your info was interesting to me.

My father's name is John Malek. He was born in 1906. He came to the United States in 1922. He had a sister named Julia born in Poland and she never came to America. My grandparents names are Peter and Agnes Malek. My grandmothers maiden name was Czapla. There were 4 more children that were born in America. Their names are Mary, George, Joseph, and Victor.

It would be interesting to know if there is any other family in America. As far as I know my Aunt's child had his fathers name. Outside of that only girls were born. So the name is now gone. Sad to say.

There ia nother Malek in town but I do not believe we are related. The father's name is Arnold Malek. We are not in touch with each other. He has grown children in town but I do not know all of their names. Know a couple of names.

Would like to hear back from you, if possible.
