Hello, my name is Paul Stolarz, and I am currently researching my family history and end up at a complete wall once I reach Blazej Stolarz. Blazej was born in 1864 in Biadoliny, Poland. I unfortunately do not have the names of his parents or any brothers and sisters. These are the people I would love to find any information on.

Blazej Stolarz married to Anna Gurgul who was born in Wokowice, Poland outside of Krakow in 1867.

Here is a excerpt from a short story of Blazej and his wife Anna & their children written by Stefania Pakula daughter of Wladyslaw Stolarz & Franciszka Lasko:

Shortly after their wedding, they left the family home and went to Drohobych. Here, neither the living conditions nor work conditions were suitable, so they moved away furthur, as far as Korszow, district Kolomyia. In Korszow Blazej worked as a railway station master. At the beginning they bought a small estate with a small home and orchard. In time, they bought additional land and built their own beautiful home, even though it was a railway home (probably owned by the railway).

In 1926, Blazej dies. After the death of her husband, Anna lives with her children in their own home. For them, life was going well. Her sons were married, her daughters found husbands, and each of them went their way. Only one daughter remained at home with Anna, Adelaja. Adela married Antoni Chudzik, head of the Polish police. Their life went along nice and calmly. But the Second World War came the year 1939 - September, and on the eastern Polish territories, entered the Soviet Union. Mass arrests began. As a police officer, Chudzik was in danger. A good man warned him that he was to be arrested by the NKVD. Chudzik, without delay, flees to the west of Kielce, and remains there during the war. In search of Chudzik, the NKVD periodically visited Anne and Adele in January 1940, and finding no Chudzik, arrested Anne and Adele. Anne and Adele were prepared and brought to the place of transport. They were placed in a cargo wagon full of exiles and went into the unknown during a harsh winter. They traveled long, longer than a month. They ended up in Kazakhstan. In Alma Ata, the transport stopped. Here all the deportees were deployed to the camps. Here, a life of hunger and cold began alongside difficult work.

In 1944, after the second invasion of the Soviet Union into Poland, my father Wladyslaw, the eldest son of Anna, began to earnestly seek to get his mother and sisters back to Poland, which he fortunately was able to accomplish and by the November of the year 1944 they were both in Tarnopol at the residence of Wladyslaw with much rejoicing.

In 1945 our whole family, Including Grandma Anna, Adela, and my parents: Wladyslaw and Francis, my sister Helena with her daughter Eve, along with myself Stefania, and my daughter Zdzislawa as returnees from Tarnopol, by means of freight car, headed off on a long journey towards the West.

The destination of this journey was Lower Silesia. But, in Cracow we took a break from our travels and we were left on the side of the tracks. My sister Ursula, who lived in Krakow, hearing of this transport, immediately with her husband Thomas Rudziewicz ran to the station. They came quickly to the transport location looking for us. And when they found us, their first words to us were: "Get off, you are staying with us." We started to explain that is not possible, because our group is too large, we have eight people. Our explanations had no effect on them. They quickly started to drag out our baggage. A small wagon even showed up for our things and we were transported to their house, a small 2-room apartment. At home, they sincerely genuinely cared for us, fed us, and made room for us. There were 11 people, including our hosts (the home owners) and the Rudziewiczs with their 6 month old daughter Basia. But we soon went our ways. I quickly obtained a position of employment as head of the elementary school, in Libertow near Krakow. Sister Helena was hired as an accountant in a government farm near Ostrow Wielkopolski. Adela, in Krakow awaited a surprise, a great happiness.

A few days after her arrival, she went to the office of repatriation, and there she met her husband-Antoni Chudzik. Their joy was great! Throughout the duration of the war they knew nothing about each other. Thousands of miles separated them, he in Kielce, and she in exile in Kazakhstan - and suddenly they found themselves together.

Chudzik immediately took care of his wife and her mother Anna. They lived in Kielce and started to live a normal life. At the Rudziewiczs, my parents remained as well as my daughter Zdzislaw. But I had to reside near my new work place, near the school in Libertow, a distance of six miles from Krakow.

In 1954, Anna Stolarz dies, at 87 years of age and she is buried in Kielce.

Blazej Stolarz and Anna had nine children in this order:
1. Wladyslaw Stolarz
2. Jozef Stolarz
3. Dominika Stolarz
4. Aloysius Stolarz
5. Emilia Stolarz
6. Zygmunt Stolarz
7. Adelaide Stolarz
8. Valerie Stolarz
9. Helena Stolarz

Aloysius Stolarz married Maria Kuryluk they repatriated to Opole, Poland and had three kids:
They had three children;
1. daughter, Janina Stolarz
2. son, Kazimierz Stolarz
3. son, Marian Stolarz

Janina died of illness at the age of 20, Marian drowned at the age of 19, and Kazimierz Stolarz married Stefania Mazur and they migrated to the USA in 1952 by airplane out of Munich on Seaboard & Western airlines and landed in New York City, and now live in Butte, Montana. They had four children:

Jozef Stolarz
Stanly Stolarz
Tomasz Stolarz
Zuzana Stolarz

Jozef Stolarz married Rosario Caliwag and they had two children:

Jennifer Stolarz
Paul Stolarz

I am Paul Stolarz trying to find additional information on Blazej Stolarz. I know this is a lot of information, but I guess the more info I put the better chance I may have of finding additional information. I do hope to hear from somone.

Any helpful information can be posted here or contact me directly at pjstolarz@gmail.

I've already contacted you via email. Unfortunately I'm not seeing any direct connections as of yet, though I'm sure we've at least got a cousin or two in common. Do you have some more birth or death dates on some of these people?

Biadoliny Radłowskie (Brzesko)
Poland, Kraków, Biadoliny Radłowskie (Brzesko)
Biadoliny Radłowskie (Wojnicz)
Austria, Galizien, Biadoliny Radłowskie (Wojnicz)

It is definitely Biadoliny Radlowskie, as far as if it is when it was Galizien, or Polish, I am not sure, the time period of my family that lives there dates back to before 1700 though.

I did recently discover that Blaise Stolarz's parents are Adalbert Stolarz and Marianna Kawa. He had several brother's and sisters, just trying to search for them. In some of these old documents, it looks like their house number is 15 in some old baptismal docs I found. I wish there was a census easily available to decipher who belonged to which family and who was directly related.
