I am searching for information regarding the family of my grandfather Walenty Gałza who immigrated to the United States in 1906 from the village of Sługocin, Poland in which is now in Greater Poland Voivodeship .
My grandfather had two brothers, Stanislaw and Antoni, who were already living in the United States and a third brother Piotr who immigrated in 1913. I found a short letter written to my grandfather from a brother, Jan Gałza, who was back in Sługocin. There is mention of a person named Josef but I don’t know if that was another brother or an uncle. The letter indicates that these two were hog farmers back in Poland.
I believe Walenty’s father’s name (my Great grandfather) was Michal Gałza. In immigration records for Stanislaw and Antoni it references their sponsor’s in the United States as their uncles Filip and Josef Rosewitz. My assumption is that Rosewitz may be my great grandmother’s maiden name but I’m not sure and the spelling may not be correct.
I have reached a dead end from here so I’m hoping someone can help me find more information.
