It is almost end of the year and as I am getting older I often think about my ancestors who emigrated and lived in America and in Europe. I definitely know their lives and times when they had lived were not easy here the WWI and WWII. I can't imagine how their lifestyles looked like. My great grandparents weren't well-off so they had to emigrate to earn some money to survive. For centuries they lived in the south- east of country the region which was and it is now the poorest and underdeveloped. My grandparents were born in 1900 and 1902 so they were after 70 when the youngest granddaughter ( me) was born. My great grandparents were born in 19th century it is a long history..
My ancestors from paternal and maternal side lived in small villages and some of them had very small farm - a cow, hens, pigs later a horse and several children - so how to survive? Was it question.? Long journey to dream land - USA.
During summer holidays I visited the small village where my great grandparents lived and had started their overseas journeys. One of my ancestors Michael Masztal ( my great grandparent) is a very interesting character. He had travelled to US three times and came back to homeland..
