Thanks for the reply to try to sort out what would be the correct last name. I have attached the picture of my grandfather’s niece and also the message she wrote on the back. I’m not sure where the lady lived when she sent the picture but grandfather lived near Kacznowo, not far from Wrzesna when he left Poland to come to Manitoba, Canada in 1906.
Gallery GA.PA reply:
I’m happy I was ready to uncover that your family name from Poland was, with analyzing the given with his photo, family last name “Gmyrkówna” [Gmyrkowna, the -suffix -owna is for unmarried female family member] – with Polish language and tradition is Gmyrek or Gmerek, but analyzing the surname location in Poland I do suppose the right family name from the Kaczanowo not far from Wrzesnia is Gmerek ! With this true family last name the search could be continued.
With the most cordial greetings from your American family old country Poland,
