angeline 1 | 3 2 Feb 2008 #1Hi there-I just stumbled upon this site this morning. My mother is 100% Polish and was born in Chicago. Both of her parents were also born in Chicago (I believe), but their parents came here from Poland, surnames being Gall and Figura. Unfortunately, both of them passed away quite some time ago before I really had a chance to find out much about my Polish ancestry. One of my uncles believes that one of the families could have lived in what was once considered Austria??? I have no ideas but am very curious about my Polish roots. Any thoughts?
