My name is Catherine Sage nee Mikolajec
My Father was Edward Mikolajec
He was born in Rudnik, Raciborz Poland in the 1920's
The son of Karl Mikolajec and Maria nee Wallach
I have managed to find some letters from my late fathers family the return address is Rudnik PYR, pow. racinorz koj, Opole
and another one from 47-400 raciborz from Andrez mikolajec
I did manage to find a telephone number in polish white pages for a Mrs Emma Mikolajec with the above address, who turns out to be my late father's sister-in-law.
But my search eneded there are I do not speak polish or german and Emma does not speak english,
Is there anyone out there that would be able to help please. I want to trace his family as there were other brothers and sisters that I have old photo's of and would love to talk/meet them.
Even Google shows some Mikolajec from Raciborz.. Maybe try to contact them?
Keep in mind that Polish pronounciation for this name will be Mikołajec, and the city - Racibórz. Of course Rudnik is also place for search.
Check some social networking sites like polish nk.pl or of course facebook. Some Mikolajec ancestors from this area may still live there.
