Subject: Find-a-grave Request-Smigelski/Falkiewicz
I guess you wonder why I'm mailing you.
My name is Tomasz Sum and I'm from Poland. I have been searching for my family history for some years now. I'm especially interested in the names SMIGELSKI and FALKIEWICZ.
Catherine Smigelski (Polish original name: Katarzyna Smigielska) was my great grandmother. She left Poland in 1906 and travelled over to the States. She was married to Stanley (Polish: Stanislaw) Falkiewicz who also in 1906 emigrated to USA. Both settled down in Cleveland/Ohio.
From US Federal Census records of 1920 we can learn some more facts about these early years in the US of my ancestors in question. http://us-census.mooseroots.com/l/94707171/Stanley-Falkiewicz
STANLEY FALKIEWICZ was born (abt) 1883 in Poland. In 1920 he lived in the same household, i.e. Cleveland Ward 23, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States, with other family members:
CATHERINE FALKIEWICZ (nee Smigielska) - born (abt) 1880 in Poland.
CONSTANTINE SMIGELSKI (Polish original name: Konstanty Smigielski) - born (abt) 1879 in Poland - and emigrated to US in 1900.
Getting access to some ship passenger lists from that time 1900 and 1906 would be an advantage.
Catherine Falkiewicz died 11/04/1933 and was buried in Cleveland Calvary Cemetery (Lot 986, Gr 3, Sec 57)
Constantine Smigelski's funeral was on 07.11.1945 in Cleveland Calvary Cemetery (Lot ?, Gr ?, Sec ?).
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of their graves;
I don't have any information about the wedding date of STANLEY FALKIEWICZ and CATHERINE FALKIEWICZ either (couldn't find anything in the marriage records available via Internet).
Could you please help me somehow to answer these questions? Or at least forward my inquiry to other persons, that would be able to help me in this matter?
I got some wedding picture of Stanley and Catherine Falkiewicz taken before 1920 by The Jablonski Studios in Cleveland/Ohio. Is it possible at all that The Jablonski Studios still exist in Cleveland? There are three Cleveland
branches of them given on the wedding picture: 6122 St.Clair Ave., 2303 Professor Rd. and 8922 Buckeye Rd. Could somebody check it for me?
In addtion: my great-grandfather Stanislaw (Stanley) Falkiewicz worked in 1918 at The Johnston & Jennings Co. in Cleveland. Johnston & Jennings operated at that time four plants in three states which manufactured forges and foundry machines. Do you think friends that this company still exists today and we can somehow get in touch with them?
Thank you in advance for your support in all the above given matters
Looking forward to your kind reply
