The family I am researching is my paternal great-grandfather Jan Fabianczyk b. Oct 1879 in Grodzisk Wielkopolski. He married in Zyrardow abt. 1903, Apolonia Kulegowska (sp.?). They had two sons in Poland before emigrating to the USA (Franciszyk, 1904 (my grandfather), and Czetlar “Czetta,” 1906). I have heard both Lodz and Warsaw for place of birth, but I think probably Zyrardow. Franciszyk and Czetta arrived in New York, July 12, 1913 on the Rhein departing Bremen, accompanied by their cousin Karolina Mutt, who I believe is the maiden name of Jan’s mother. Apolonia arrived January 4, 1913, and Jan arrived December 26, 1908, departing Bremen on the Gneisenau with a last residence in Zyrardow.
