What is hidden in the photographs we keep in old boxes, envelopes or old bags?
I encourage you to look at family albums and re-discover the stories of people in these photographs.
Today, I was looking through a section of collections about a family from south-eastern Poland from Jeżowe and Groble (South-East, Poland)
Children of Karol and Józefa:
Michael G. Mścisz Metz
John Mścisz Metz
Julian Mścisz Metz
Paulina Mscisz Metz- wife of Carl Karol Słodziński
Frances Josephine Mścisz Metz -Edwin Szetela
Mary Josephine Mścisz Metz- wife of Cecil Charles McGraw
Katharine Mścisz Metz – wife of Chema Paul
Information about the descendants of Mścisz from Jeżowe, who immigrated to the USA, I have managed to establish through the Ellis Island website (information about Karol Mścisz), while the information about his American part of the family I have found by searching the websites. The photographs above, were sent by the relatives of Karol to the relatives remaining in Poland.
Karol Mścisz / Metz had a brother Jan (1871-1954)
Karol’s sisters were:
Agnieszka, born about 1870 – she married Stanisław Iskra, 1896
Marianna born in 1882 – she married Chmura
Franciszka born in 1885
I encourage everyone to take care of photographs, scan them and also describe them (people, surnames, when they could be taken and where).
