With deepest gratitude
to my cousin Roman,
Marge / Małgosia
|In June 2003 I received an e-mail from Roman Witek who lives in Poland. (I live in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.) Roman had found my webpage through a Google search. After browsing my genealogy webpages, he wrote to say that we have a surname in common in our family histories. Both of our SZTORC families were part of the Church parish of Łęki Górne, Podkarpackie, Poland. I was not able to connect our two SZTORC lines as yet, but I found that Roman and I are fourth cousins through our PAPROCKI lineage. Serendipity. Since our meeting, Roman has been sending me photographs of the Podlesie - Łęki Górne area and has given me permission to present them on my webpage. Below are thumbnail links to the larger photographs. You can begin with the first photograph or anywhere you choose. Navigation links from each page allow you to go on to the next or previous photo in the series or to return to this page.|

| Łęki Górne,
Here are more photographs of the Łęki Górne / Leki Gorne and Łęki Dolne / Leki Dolne area. While this entire gallery is primarily comprised of photographs sent to me by my cousin Roman, this next album includes photos taken by me (Marge Galus Sandlier), during my first trip to Poland in June 2004. I met, face-to-face, my dear cousin Roman, and we stood together on the steps of the Church of our ancestors in Łęki Górne - takes my breath away just thinking about it. Roman sent several photographs last year of the fair at St. Bartholomew's Church in Łęki Górne. In 2002 I "met" through my webpage a young woman and her husband, Grażyna and Marek, who were born in Łęki Górne, and now live in Canada. They sent me several photographs of Łęki Górne that I have included in this album.
Dziękuję bardzo. Marge.

Borzysławiec / Borzyslawiec, Zachodniopomorskie, Poland - Formerly Luisenthal, Naugard, Prussia, was the birthplace of my maternal grandfather, Adolph George THOMAS. Adolph immigrated with his parents Ferdinand and Agnes SCHNECK THOMAS to Nebraska in the United States in July 1893. Surnames of my family from this area: HASE/HAASE, KÖHLER, MARX, SENFT, SCHNECK, THOMAS - related by marriage to the DOLLERSCHELL family, some of whom also immigrated to Nebraska. My cousin Roman took these photographs for me, while he was on a business trip in the Szczecin area.
