|I’m looking for information on my Great Great Grandfather Jacob Filip who I believe left Galicia in 1913 to Detroit Michigan. I believe that he was born in either 1854 or 1861 in Lancut or Zolynia. The Ellis Island records shows Zolynia as the place he left in 1913 but I believe that he may have been born in Lancut.
I believe that he had 3 sons that went to Detroit as well, Jacob, John (Johannes?) and Frank (Frantisek?). All of them left Zolynia for Detroit before their father.
Jacob Sr. was married to a Katarzyna Mlynek who went with him to Detroit in 1913 and a 17yr ok’d daughter named Katarzyna as well.
Any information of Jacob Sr or Katarzyna Mlynek would be much appreciated.
