Attached is a photo of a Catholic church in Poland. On the back of the photo a relative wrote:
“Church in Poland. Busha was baptized there and received her First Holy Communion there. This was the last place she went to before leaving Poland.”
â€œBushaâ€ is grandmother in Polish. Adela Rose Rozinska was my great grandmother and a lovely person. Someone later added â€œGrajewoâ€ to the back of the picture. That could be the city where this church is located. That is, if it still stands after the two World Wars. She was from the Russian Partition area of Poland. Another likely city could be: Wierzbowo, where I believe she was born, 16 Dec 1883. She came to the States around 1901 or 1902. America was the “land of opportunity.” Adele was the eldest and it was decided that she would make a fortune here. She never saw her parents again. She met and married my great grandfather, Edward Tomaszewski and having 9 children was never able to afford to go back and visit.
Maybe there is someone who can identify the church or lead me to where I may find help.
