      All of my relatives named Olenik lived in Youngstown, Ohio as far as I know.
      My maternal grandmother was an Olenik. Her father and mother immigrated
      here around 1908 or so. None of this info is permanently etched in my brain
      right now...due with 3rd baby in Feb. I haven't gotten very far in the
      research to see where my great grandfathers siblings if any came with him.
      I know Dr. Joe Q, who is on this list, might possibly be a relative on the
      Olenik side. Sorry I don't have any other info to share.

      Hi Janet
      I could be wrong about the spelling. i did an infospace.com search for
      Olinek, Olenik and Olejnik. actually, there are Olejniks in the area of
      where we
      lived and no Olineks at all. So your suggestion is probably the correct
      spelling. Olejnik. I remember that they were nice people. we lived in an
      house on the corner of Third Street and Clifton Avenue and it had a Polish
      deli downstairs, an Italian novelty store, an antique dealer, a pet shop and
      office. there were four apartment houses upstairs and we lived on one
      and the Oleniks lived on the further corner. since we did not share a
      hallway, the smell from the cooking of the cabbage must have been powerful
      enough to come through the walls. :O)
      (As did our cooking as well)
      where did your relatives named Olenik or Olejnik live?
