I have some information which was given to me several years ago by a cousin who is now deceased. She was able to locate the town where my grandparents were from as “Ladzjanka” or “Lazjanka” which is no longer in existance. I believe my cousin mentioned that the that the town was originally located somewhere near the Vistula River. My Grandparents names were Roman Zielinski and Felimena Mondziloski. Roman’s parents names were Kazmir Zielinski and Antonina Wierzbicka. I only have the full name of Felimena’s father whose name was Joseph Mondzieloski. Felimena’s mother’s fisrt name was Mary, but that was all the information that my cousin was able to get at theat time. My grandparents migrated to the USA in 1913 and abrought with them a daughter names Helen and a son named Stanley and I believe that there was also another older son of Roman’s from a previous marriage to Felimena’s sister who had died and then Roman married her sister Felimena which I heard was a common practice in those days. I do not know the name of Roman’s older son nor the name of Felimena’s sister. My dad Peter was born here in the USA and was a first generation American. I am just trying to find out as much information as I can.
