Welcome!

Welcome to my Polish blog! My Polish great grandpa was orphaned during the Chicago flu epidemic of 1918 & spent his life looking for all of his siblings. Some family stayed in Chicago & some returned to Poland. Some family was Catholic, & some are believed to be Jewish. I post the things I learn in efforts it may help someone else in their research. I also hope this blog helps me connect with others that know about the people I'm learning about. Digital images of records or links are put inside most postings so you can view records full screen. I encourage comments. Feel free to sign the guestbook, stating who you're looking for. Maybe we can all help each other out this way, because there are many challenges with Polish research. I hope you enjoy learning with me. And I hope to be taught more about my Polish heritage.
I have added a few languages to this blog through Google translate. I hope that it may be accurate enough with the communication of ideas.
Thanks! -Julie

Witam! (Polish translation of Welcome)

Witam w moim polskim blogu! Mój pradziadek został osierocony w czasie epidemii grypy w 1918 roku i spędził wiele lat poszukując swojego rodzeństwa. Część rodziny pozostała w Chicago a część wróciła do Polski. Część rodziny była katolikami a część, jak przypuszczam, wyznania mojżeszowego. Piszę w moim blogu o rzeczach które odkrywam i o których dowiaduję się mając nadzieję, że pomogą one wszystkim zainteresowanym w ich własnych poszukiwaniach. Wierzę, że ten blog pomoże mi w skontaktowaniu się z ludźmi którzy wiedzą coś na temat osób ktorych poszukuję. Zdjęcia cyfrowe lub linki umieszczone są w większości moich komentarzy i artykułów, można więc otworzyć je na cały ekran. Gorąco zachęcam do komentarzy. Proszę wpisać się do księgi gości i podać kogo Państwo szukacie. Może będziemy mogli pomóc sobie nawzajem, ponieważ nie jest łatwo znaleźć dane których szukamy. Mam nadzieję, że zainteresuje Państwa odkrywanie ze mną tajemnic przeszłości. Mam rówież nadzieję poznać lepiej moje polskie dziedzictwo.

Dodałam do mojego blogu automatyczne tłumaczenia poprzez Google. Ufam, że będą wystarczające w zrozumieniu o czym jest mowa w artykułach i komentarzach.

Dziękuję! - Julie

A Bronislawa Sanetra marries Rudolph Cender

I did some searches on ellisisland.org for "Sanetra". I noticed a Franciszek Sanetra immigrated 11 Jun 1912. It said her brother-in-law Rudolph Cender paid her passage. So then I was curious who Rudolph's wife was. So I went to the familysearch pilot record search page (see my favorite links) which has the full index of Ellis Island records. I did a search on Cender & Cinder. I found Rudolph's wife was named Branislawa listed as age 25, and his son was Raymond, age 3 1/2. The record stated that Branislawa Cender's husband was Rudolph Cender, and that her mother was Anna Sanetra, in Zablocie. That's where our Sanetra's and Cenders are from, but I don't know how they're connected to our family yet. So I am really curious what the connection is, and figure there must be a connection.

Rudolph Cender's WWI draft card stated he as born 18 Apr 1883 in Austria (Poland). They lived on John St, in Richmond, New York, -which was what the Ellis Island, WWI draft card & 1920 Census all said was their address. In 1920, on the Census, it says Rudolph immigrated in 1906, and that they are all Polish. It also said Rudolph was age 33, a laborer in the ship yard, owned a home (mortgaged), Branislawa was 31, and they had 5 children: Raymond 12, Rudolph 5, Wilhelm 3, & Rozalia 1 5/12. Not seeing them on the 1930 Census yet.

Maria Sanetra (my gr..grandpa Adam Sanetra's sister), the daughter of Jozef Sanetra & Franciszka Gowin, married Maciej Caputa in 1888. Their daughter Katarzyna Caputa married Juliusz Cender, the son of Jozef Cender & Regina Urbanska. The curious part for me here, is that on Ellis Island records, our Branislawa Sanetra (Adam Sanetra & Rosalie's daughter) traveled to the US in 19 Feb 1911 (a year before Branislawa Sanetra Cender). Ellis Island records said that our Branislawa left her grandmother which looked like "Regina Urbanska", and was going to see her father Adam Sanetra in Chicago. But our Branislawa's maternal grandmother was Regina Zulawska & paternal grandmother was Franciszka Gowin. I don't yet see a relationship between our Branislawa & Regina Urbanska who was Juliusz Cender's mother. Juliusz Cender's relationship to our Branislawa Sanetra would be first cousin's husband. (Husband of Katarzyna Caputa) I just don't know very much about the Cenders yet, but would like too. One thing I do know from family letters, is that Maria Sanetra's family (including the Cenders) stayed close to Adam Sanetra. Maria Sanetra & her daughter Katarzyna (Caputa) Cender were with Adam Sanetra when he died. And we do know Adam and Rosalie had to leave Branislawa behind with family. So maybe she did stay with the Cenders. I wish I knew how to learn more about these Cenders.
