Hi,
I'm from Massachusetts, I am joining with hopof to finding some relatives here in the US or Poland from my father's family. His name is Waclaw Dembowski, boen July 1910 I believe in the Lodz area, he came from a large family 12/13 siblings. He came to US in January/February 1952 with his wife Leokadia. He spent time as a prisoner of war in Germany and Poland. We have never been fortuate enough to meet any of our relatives. He did receive some mail via New York, but I was too young to know anything about it. He was planning a trip back home but died before he could return. Any help would be appreciated.

I do not have a lot of information. They did come in thru New York, he was a butcher by trade. My sister has far more information than I do, I will ask her to e-mail me all the info. Thank you for replying.

Hi,
Well here's the information, he was born on August 10, 1910 in Lekkowka, Pietrkow, Lodz, Poland. He was a butcher in Szczetrzow, Lodz, Poland. He spent time in 2 different POW camps as well. He met my mother in a German camp, my mother was from Krakow, Leokadia Garbart. They had 2 sons and 1 daughter when they arrived. Thanks for helping.

Well, I went back to the papers I do have and reviewed. One of the papers has the following: He was born at Lenkkowka/Warschau Poland in August 1910; his papers state he attended school in Piotrków. His mother's name was Josefa nee Galla and his father's name was Michael. He came from a family of 14.
