I love my family history so I have gathered a lot of materials which are very important to me. On this place in 19th century was the wooden hut where my ancestors lived and set off to USA and different countries, It was a small village Ustrobna where my ancestors were born and lived. In the past my ancestors were farmers and had a lot of animals an vegetables and almost half ot the village belonged to them. As I know from Roman- Catholic records in Ustrobna the most significant families were Kondej and King but most of them decided to leave homeland and looked for better life in different continent or countries..
Was it the right decision? From my point of view definitely yes.. At that time Poland didn't exist on the map because of partition. Here was Austra, So my ancestors were Austrian..
And it was the poorest part of Austria..I think they were wise people so they decided to have better opportunities for their children..
The oak Ustrobniok is very old so it is the only witness of that hard times..
Roots are the most important in our life.. Do you agree?
