Harry Kurek’s family history and pursuit of missing pieces
We have recently worked on a case for Harry Kurek. He is one of our clients, was born and live in the USA. Harry is a member of the Polish Genealogical Society who is actively seeking for his Polish roots.
All his granparents emigrated from Galicia to States in the early 90’s. Jan Kurek, Harry’s grandfather was born in 1871, in house 23 in Poznachowice Dolne. His grandfather and grandmother were – Andrzej Kurek and Agnieszka Rumińska. His grandfather emigrated to America somewhere between 1909 and 1910. His other grandmother Maria Kurek, nee Kaleta was born in house 44 in Porąbka. She and Jan got married in 1896 and lived in Dąbie. They have several kids including Harry’s Aunt Agnieszka and Stefania who lived their lives in Porąbka. His aunt Agnieszka Kurek got married in 1939 to Aleksander Koza. They had only one child – Ignacy born in 1944.
Below you can find pictures that are still not completely identified. If anyone recognizes anyone in these photos or has knowledge of Harry’s ancestors please contact YRiP with your information.
