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

2 family pictures: Lugwig Sanetra's wedding picture and an unknown family picture from Ludwig's family

A continuation and update of postings 26 Feb 2009 and 14 Jun 2009. Or click on Ludwig Sanetra tag.

I am thankful that Dirk Varnholt saw my blog this week, and identified this picture on my blog that I had titled "unknown Sanetra wedding picture". He identified the people in this picture as part of his family, and the picture as the wedding of Caroline Strzawi and Ludwig Sanetra. These pictures come from his family, and we somehow got a copy. There was Polish and German writing on the back of the picture, which actually identified the people in the picture. I did not understand the writing, because I only know English. I am very grateful to know who's wedding picture this is. Dirk and I are both searching for people who know about Ludwig's family. Like my Sanetra family, his family was separated during the war. He is trying to figure out who his relatives and ancestors are. We hope to find the relationship between Adam Sanetra and Ludwig Sanetra. If you know of this Sanetra family (or any other Sanetra family), please contact me. Comparing some information with Dirk, we know a little about Ludwig's family. I write this information, in hopes someone may recognize it. Ludwig Sanetra's siblings were separated.We know from some records that they were born in Zywiec, Poland. Some family went to Germany, some to Hungary, some to the United States, and some to the Czech Republic.


Ludwig had a sister name Franciszka Sanetra that married Karol Nasluchasz. He also had a sister named Marianne (Dirk's family) who married a Mr. Stachon. Franciszka and Ludwig immigrated to the United States.  They each married in Chicago. Marianne remained in Europe. Ludwig, Franciszka and Marianne were the children of Jozef Sanetra and Regina Wojcik.They may have had more children.
The picture on the left and right of this paragraph are  Ludwig Sanetra and Karoline Strzawi's marriage picture. Ludwig is also written on records as Ludwik or Louis Sanetra.



We wonder if this next picture could be Ludwig, his parents and a brother? We are also wondering if Micheal Sanetra that was in Chicago may be related. The Michael Sanetra in Chicago married Stella V. Mathuszewska and had 8 children that I know of. There was a Michael Sanetra who was the godfather to Agnes Sanetra, (Marianne Sanetra's daughter). Does anyone from the Micheal and Stella Sanetra family know if Michael was part of this family and was he the same Michael who was godfather to Agnes Sanetra? Also, does anyone from the Michael Sanetra family know if anyone in this family picture has a family resemblance to the Michael Sanetra in Chicago?

If you know of any other siblings of Ludwig, please email me or sign my guest book. If you know anything about the Ludwig or Michael Sanetra families in Chicago, or anything about these pictures, please email me or sign my guestbook.Thanks!
