ok one record at a time.
I would like to start with the Catholic and Orthodox churches in Joliet, IL. The problem is, I don't know which they attended. My great-grandfather Wasyl Kocielko attended the Orthodox church, while his wife Helen Pilip went to the Catholic church.
Well usually the groom Marries in the brides church. least in some cases.
in poland. you might have to write to both. let me see what I can come up
with on the ancestry tomorrow, I will see how close they are to either church
and maybe I can find some type of record online. if not its going to be all mail
but maybe we can narrow some research down a little :)
One thing I can tell you, I have called the cemetary, not always do you get a
good response, but I have called and told my purposes and they gave me the
info or called me back with the funeral home, the church (if they had a obit)
and family members involved. so that is another option.
I have no burial information for his sister Anna Lewicki, who lived in Hamtramck, MI.
I will look her up too :) and what I find I will email to ya :)
do you have ancestry.com already?
