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

Oczkowski, Oczkowska, and Sanetra sisters- Żywiec, Bielsko, Poland

Adam Sanetra was the youngest of seven children. Here's Adam's siblings and their spouses with the Oczkowska   connections (and a Klosak):
Children of Jozef Sanetra and Franciska Gowin
1. Karol Sanetra- born and died Jan 1865
2. Ludwig Jozef Sanetra- born and died Mar 1866
3. Maria Sanetra born 1867. Married Maciej Caputa 1888. Maciej born 1842. Maria and Maciej's daughter Elzbieta Caputa married Jozef Oczkowska 1911 Żywiec-Zabłocie, Bielsko, Poland. Jozef born 1886, son of Jakub Oczkowska and Marianna Dendys. Maria Sanetra's second marriage to Wojciech Gielata in 1917. Wojciech born 1865.
4. Apolonia Sanetra born 1872. Married Jozef Klosak 1894. Jozef born 1862. Second marriage to Jozef Oczkowski in 1905. Jozef born 1882.
5. Katarzyna Sanetra born 1873. Married Jozef Kozka 1898. Jozef born 1874.
6. Helena Sanetra born 1875. (not sure if married or immigrated)
*7. Adam Sanetra born 1876. Married Rosalie Wandzel 1900. Second marriage to Alfreda Mazukiewicz 1920.

 1894-Klosak, Jozef-Aplonia Sanetra marriage
1905-Oczkowski, Jozef-Apolonia Sanetra mar
1911-Oczkowska, Jozef-Caputa, Elzbieta Caputa mar
I know that Maria Sanetra was in Poland in 1923 when Adam went back to Poland, and that Adam stayed with his sister and brought his family there. (The family he could find: Wife Alfreda and children Bronislaw and Jozef) But that is all that I know of or heard mentioned. We do not have death dates. So by 1923, that leaves siblings Apolonia, Katarzyna and Helena most likely living. Are they still in Poland? Or did they immigrate? One person that interests me is Apolonia. She was married to a Klosak and an Oczkowski. Both those families immigrated same times our family was leaving. I only know Jozef Klosak's marriage date, but wish I knew his parents to see if maybe he was a sibling of Marianna Klosak who brought Bronislawa Sanetra to this country. If that was so, then Marianna would indeed be an aunt of Bronislawa. I've including the marriage info I have. It's really hard to read. It was done in really early digital image days. I'm so grateful someone took these pictures for me. If I can read it right, I think Jozef Klosak's mother's maiden name is Zyzak. Maybe the Latin form of Agnes? My guess is Agnes Zyzak. I can't read the fathers name at all. Click on images to view full screen.
