My great grandparents on both sides came from Poland. I am not sure what is beyond that. Maybe someone out there can help me find some kind of info about my family. All I know is that my great grandparents came over very young in their teens. hey moved to Pennsylvania, USA

Death records, SS application, ship manifest (after 1906), birth records for their children & church records are good sources that may contain birth town information.
