Janina Lubanski (also Janina Lubanska, Jennie Perko) was my 2nd great-grandmother. Records say she was born in “Honziny, Poland” or “Umesk, Poland.” I have tried to search for these places online and in gazetteers, but I can’t find any mention of them anywhere besides the same records I have of her.
She was born on November 13th, 1891 (or 1890?) and married Joseph (Josef) Perko on January 24th, 1912. I believe they had 6 children together but the number could be higher. She emigrated to the United States from Bremen, Germany on December 15th, 1907 on the Breslau. She died on November 27th, 1984.
I am very thankful to have this information about her, but it is difficult to trace my ancestry further back without knowing where exactly she was born in Poland. I would be very, very grateful if anyone could offer suggestions or clues as to where “Honziny” or “Umesk” are.
My grandfather, Michael Bodek, was born in Poland in 1981 or 1892. He emigrated to USA in 1912 via SS...Quest Details
