Hi John,

I only found 1 record on a passenger list around that age ~

Jan Chmielewska age 13
Arrived Nov.7, 1923 (but then the birthdate wouldn't match)
Born ~Winiarki,Poland
Going to Buffalo,NY
Traveling with a Josefa ~ Female
Left from Danzig on the SS Polonia

Do you know if your Dad had a step-father?

where did he live in US? My grandma's maiden name was chmielewski.she had several brothers by the name of Clement, Faustyn, John and sisters of which I do not know the married name. Since I was able to get their names from Poland I was able to locate them on the Ellis Island manifests. The John that I located I list in Buffalo, New York and may have had a shoe store.. I hope we have a connection.
