Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Harrison Township, MI (suburb outside of Detroit), and have been working on my family tree and my husbands family tree for over 10 years now. I love using cemetery records to enhance my trees and am always excited at the prospect of meeting these important family members for the first time.

My main family branches are Kargol, Boda, Sobieski, Narkiewicz, Szczesny, Lempicki, Roman, Marchik and Hapanowicz, and are for the most part, from Poland and Slovakia, immigrating to Pennsylvania and then on to Hamtramck (Detroit) MI. My husband's family are immigrants to Ontario, Canada from Ireland, England and Scotland and they are Casey, Heffernan, Fitzgerald, Gray, Pallister and Marvel families.

Pictures on my memorials are from my personal family albums. Please do not use without an okay from me first. I have seen pictures taken from my memorials used without permission and sometimes used incorrectly. Please, ask first.

RE: Maryanna Dabrowski Narkiewicz
Thank you very much for your information. It is much appreciated. Do you have any photographs of Maryanne and Anthony by any chance? Do you also know how they managed to get to the USA and why they left Poland.

Kind regards,

RE: Maryanne Narkiewicz
It must be the same family strand as my grandma was looked after by some family in Bialystok during the world War II.I also remember the surname Dabrowski and I also have the photograph of Maryanne in my family photo collection. Do you have any photos of Anthony and Maryanne at all if so do you mind sending them,please. Do you have any other details about Maryanne like her date of birth and her maiden name-I could look more into that on some Polish geneology websites.

Kind regards,

RE: Maryanne Narkiewicz
The picture I have in my family photo album bares a striking resemblance to Maryanne the wife of Anthony Narkiewicz, who I presume was the brother of your great grandfather. I have sent the picture to Jozefa and she said it looks like the same person to her. I can send both pictures to you so that you can have a look and say what you think. If not do you have any contact details to anybody from Anthony Narkiewicz's family, please.

Kind regards,

Maryanne Narkiewicz
This is a message to Paula Kargol Hapanowicz:


I have desperately been trying to put some missing family history pieces together and while searching through my heritage website I came across the picture of Maryanne Narkiewicz. I must say that her facial features are so striking that I am convinced that she was related to my mum's side of the family. I do have a picture of a woman who resembles Maryanne and they share the same name. My great grandma was called Maria Narkiewicz and all I know that she was born in Vilnus in 1882 and her parents were called Aleksander and Maria(her maiden name was Kaminska) Narkiewicz. I know she had other siblings and aunties and uncles but I was too small to remember all the details and now she is no longer with us so I have nobody to ask.

I contacted Jozefa Szumlak and she recommended speaking to you. I would really appreciate if you found some time to check that information and be so kind and let me know if I was right. I am happy to send you the picture of the woman who I think is Maryanne.

Kind regards,

Aleksandra Young

I am a Roman decedent. After looking at your family tree under Roman I noticed you are missing quite a bit. You are even missing my Aunt, who is still alive at the age of 86. She is the last of the children of Michael and Elizabeth (Roman) Hanczyk. I am the daughter of Raymond and Margaret E. (Hanczyk) Smith. I have one brother still alive. I probably could help you fill in a lot of blanks when it comes to the Marcinak and Roman side. I would love to here from you.

Could you please e-mail me directly at regarding the info you sent me on Alice's mother. I'm having trouble e-mailing you because of Find A Grave's Captcha system.
