Ellis Island

After a lot of reading and writing, I have written a summary of Raymond Werbicki’s entry into the United States by way of Ellis Island.  There are two documents that you will need to open in order to get both the written text and graphics.  They are filed under the term “blog roll” on the right.  Please watch the power point as a slide show by clicking on “slide show” then “view show” as that would make the images larger.

I hope you enjoy what you see and read.  More will come as I get Linda involved as she is our “Polish expert.”

    Excellent! Looking forward to more.

    Old records are difficult to read. When we continue with our research we should look at the possibilty that the town Grandpa came from was Kumelsk. Mr Davis (our cousin thru Bachie’s sister, Eva) said his grandfatherfather came from Kumelsk and he had always heard that his grandfather and Grandpa knew each other in the old country which is why they purchased land together in Conneticut. Also, Kumelsk is a city in Lomza, Grandpa’s county of origin in Poland.

    This is GREAT! I so wish we had something like this for the Fortenberry’s. What a beautiful young couple Aunt Wanda and Uncle Adrain made! I have recently had a home movie of mom and dad’s converted to DVD. It is of one of the Fortenberry Christmas parties and it was at our house down in the basement. I only remember having Christams are Aunt Wanda and Uncle Adrian’s so this was a surpise. I’m about 9 or so in them. I’ll bring it to our next cousin’s lunch and show you. Love all of you bunches! Jo
