Chester, West Virginia, Jeżowe, Galicia, Stories hidden in photography

Posted on Updated on

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

Andrew? Mścisz

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.

I encourage everyone to take care of photographs, scan them and also describe them (people, surnames, when they could be taken and where).
