I have been banging my head against the wall looking for my great grandfathers sister. All I know about her is that her last name was Marchiel, she was born in Suchawola, Poland, had a brother named Francizek, moved to the US before 1902 and she married someone named Y Shebichy in Maspeth, NY. Before I found my great grandfather arrival record I didn't think any of his siblings immigrated. But its all I have to work with. Help? They are the first ones at the top.

I think the brother-in-law's first initial may be a J, not a Y. Compare it to Josef further down.

Also, the first letter of his surname might not be S. Compare it to Step-brother further down. Might be an I???

What do you know about Francizek Marchiel after 1902? Whom did he marry? When did he die and where?

His sister could have been a witness at the marriage. She or members of her family could be mentioned in his obituary -- or will.

He by 1915 was staying with a cousin Izydor Skrobielewski and was married to his wife Teofila Misojeda by 1916. I have a copy of the marriage cert and the witnesses were Edward Ziennoriz (I think) and Amelia Kreyzzr (I think). He died 24 August 1953 in Greenpoint Brooklyn. I was never able to find a obit. My grandmother never knew that her father had had (immediate) family in this country, and she handled his will. I'm not even sure that this is a relative or just some family friend. It might even be Izydor.

Do you know Izydor's wife's name? and maiden name?

Surnames: Marchiel, Skrobielewski
Were Francizek Marchiel and his wife married in a church? or by a priest? If so, the same church might have records on him, his sister, or Izydor.

He was married in 1916 in St. Cyril's. Izydor was married there as well around 1910. He actually became his brother in law (after Frank arrived) since they married sisters. The sisters were Zuzanna and Teofila Misajeda. Looking back at the manifest, do you think its possible that Y Shebichy (or whomever) is Izydor Skrobielewski? I have seen some horrible butchering of his name.

Sorry I offended you by posting too much, daciodan? Look I've been doing this for a year and a half and to be pretty honest am proud of what I've found out. I've had no guidance and I have brain damage that prevents me from reading script easily, and my family doesn't really have an interest in my hobby and my family has a bad habit of estrangement over the generations so even if my 91 y/o grandmother did remember something she would not be able to help with this because she never saw any of her cousins and her father never talked about life in Poland or before he was married much...so im on my own when I read censuses and manifests and things. The threads are my only guidance to learn.

That last thread was about finding specific censuses, this one is about how to track down someone when all I've got is a (probably wrongly spelled)last name, where they lived, the maiden name of their wife, and the name of their brother-in-law.

And yes, sometimes I need to have the same discussion a few times before it sinks in. Half the time I forget that I started a thread on a certain topic until someone response so saying I had a similar discussion two months ago isn't very helpful. If ancestry had a way to make it easier to locate your own old thread than sure that would be great, I would love to keep track. If there is a way to do this, without favoriting all of your own thread, please enlighten me.
