Surnames...Papczynski, Taberski (or Taberska), Starkweather

I started my genealogy search 13 years ago and then put it down. But I have started it back up in full swing. I am totally enjoying it.

My maiden name is Papczynski. I found a Papczynski in Germany back in 2000. Henryk wrote to me and the letter is all in Polish. My father had a very hard time translating it because it was written German/Polish.

So I have put the letter down thinking I would never be able to get it translated. I have tried the online translation programs but they cannot translate all of the words.

I do not speak, write or read Polish. So I was hoping that maybe someone knows someone that could translate this letter for me if I scan it and send it to them via e-mail? If there is a charge for it I would like to know.

Appreciate any help.

Paternal side:
Papczynski, Taberski (or Taberska) Starkweather, Paidle, Grochowalski, Nowaczewski,Lentych.

Maternal Side:
Brajcki (or Bracki), Lentek, Klucenik.

On the paternal side I can get back to 1840's but I am still trying to get farther.
On the maternal side, I can get back to 1899 still looking.

The Brajcki's all settled in Chicago ILL. I have found some in CA that have died.

I thank you all in advance if you can help me.

I do have 469 people on my dad's side and only 30 on mom's side. I am making head way but still looking.

Jaga contacted me and I sent her the letter that I could not translate. She said she is busy but will get to it. I am so excited to know I will finally find out what he said.

Thank you so much for giving me Jaga website.
