My grandfather emmigrated to the U.S. from Wilno, Poland. I know he corresponded with his sister in Russian, so he was fluent in both Polish and Russian. He was the youngest child of 3. We have a family picture but don’t know the names of his brother and sister. I think that his mother’s name was Ksawera Smyczynski and I believe his father’s name was John Kondratowicz. My grandfather’s parents saved enough money for their youngest son to come to the U.S. and the rest of his family remained in Poland. I think his brother was in the military as the photo we have is of him in a uniform. He never saw his family again and he never spoke of them with us, so I would love to know as much as possible about his family he left behind and possibly whether I may have relatives in Poland.
