7540RE: [Galicia_Poland-Ukraine] Zbarazh
- Jan 2, 2006All I was ever told growing up was that my family was Polish and Roman
Catholic. They belonged to St. Elizabeth's R.C. Church in Pen Argyl, Pa. as
children, though their baptism papers are most likely at Our Lady of Mount
Carmel R.C. Church in Roseto, Pa., which is one town over and supplied their
priest in the early days. It has only been since I received some family
tree information form my mother' s cousin that I have found out that they
were from Zbarazh, Galicia, and may have been Sephardic Jews. I knew that
when I was a small child in the early 50s, their was a Ukrainian family
living in our neighborhood for a few years. The old grandmother never
learned English, and between her Ukrainian and what Mom remembered of the
language she grew up with, which she always called Polish, they could
understand each other.
My ex wife's family was German and may have been related to Albert Speer,
the Nazi war criminal through my father in law's mother.
