1603Hi! I am a new member!
- Feb 3, 2008Hello Everyone
My name is Britney Hawk and I am a new member to the group. I have
been researching my family history for about 7 years and I am
currently working on my great-grandmother's side of the family. From a
recently discovered Baptismal record, I found that she was from the
Tarnobrzeg area. Here is what I know:
Name: Zofia (aka Sophia, Sophie) Obara - Married name: Cieszynski
Born: 2-22-1885 in Durdy, Galacia
Died: 3-23-1978 in Milwaukee, WI
Immigrated: 3-24-1905 through Ellis Island
Parents: John (Joannes)Obara and Katherine Durda
According to Baptismal records, (which were in Latin) her Godparents
were Josephus Durda and Agatha Durda. The midwife who delivered her
was listed as Marianne Obara. She was baptized in the parish of Wola
Baranowska, in the district of Tarnobrzeg, in the subdiocese of
Mielec, in the Diocese of Tarnow.
Also, I think I may have found a sister who also immigrated to the
United States. Her name is Justyna. She arrived in the US on 5-24-1911
through Ellis Island, at the age of 21 years. Her place of origin was
If any of you have any suggestions on where I can go from here or
think that you may be related in some way, I would greatly appreciate
any help that I can get.
