Hi Daniel,

I tried looking for your family, but the information you provided isn't enough or isn't clear. Some questions:

Have you found all of the documents for your grandparents in the U.S.? For example: passenger lists, naturalization records, marriage application and license, all of the census records, WWI draft registration cards, etc. These documents would give you more precise information to begin your search in Poland - especially marriage applications and naturalization petitions.

For example, I ran into several barriers when searching for your family. First, when I search for the village name you provided for your grandfather, I could not find it. Could it be spelled incorrectly? or could it be the wrong village? What source was used to find the village for your grandfather, Jan Plewak? Another issue: there are a number of villages called Borowa in Poland. You need more information to narrow down the exact village of your grandmother's birth.

Also, as I searched Ancestry.com for U.S. documents, I found more than one John (Jan) Plewak with a wife named Katherine (Katarzyna). I found them in New Jersey, Niagra Falls NY, Bronx NY, etc. Hard to tell which is your family without more identifying information.

If you can tell us what you know, i.e., where they lived in the U.S., names of their children, what sources you used for the village names, etc. that might be more helpful. And, if you haven't yet found their marriage application in the U.S. and/or their naturalization petition for citizenship, I suggest you do so. That would be extremely helpful in pinpointing their village in Poland.

Sorry I couldn't help more.

best,
Cynthia
