I am searching for information about the Stampora family. I believe that my GGF Clemens Stempora came from Podhorce, Thomaszow, Lublin. Does anyone live near this town, or know of this name ?

Thank you,

Podgorci, Lublinska, Russia, is what's on a 1918 WWI draft card, under the name Clement Stempora, here in the USA. He was born September 10, 1893.

Is this your ggf?

Sounds like the same place as you have named, just the "Russian" name is on the card and maybe you have the Polish name for it.

It is spelled Podgorica or Podgorice, on a Serbia and Montenegro site I visited and it is spelled Tomaszow Lubelskie on a Polish rootsweb genealogy site I frequent.

Podgorci is spelled Podgorce or Podhorce, Podgorcie, Podgorze at Ellis Island, on some ship manifests I found there for Josef, Adam and Bartomolew/z Stempora.

I have census records and Ellis Island records for the Stempora persons named, if you want them. They're free, just ask and I'll post them here or send to your email, whichever you wish.

Thank you for taking the time to search for this information. I do already have it and was hoping that I could find someone in Poland who actually knows of the family, or if any of them still exist in the town of Podhorce.

I still cannot find any record of Clemens immigrating, whilst I have found those of Bartholomew, Adam and Josef.
I believe that Adam must be a cousin, and did not even know of Josef being a brother until recently.
Thank you again for your help.
Sincerely, GrandeSande

I think you are my cousin!!!!
My mother is Loretta Kordell, who was your father's sister.
Get back to me so we can compare notes.


Michael Stempora,

Please get back to me.
I would like to hear from you about your STEMPORA relatives. I really think that we are from the same family.

Trying to find guest poster "sloviak"

I am trying to get in touch with "sloviak", who answered my post on March 2, 2007.

It was concerning our STEMPORA genealogy. He (Michael Stempora) is my cousin, and I would like to speak with him.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Michael,

Great to hear from you... have been working hard on the Stempora genealogy and have found out some pretty interesting stuff.
Why don't you join so that you could send me, or I could send you a Private Message.

Still waiting for a reply from the woman who sent me a paper with his name on it. There was no other info about him on that original sheet, just his name. I will let you know as soon as I hear.
