My grandfather was Andrrzej Papuga. He arrived in America on February 19, 1912 abord the Nieuw Amsterdam. He was traveling with my Grandmother Karolina Papuga (Wybranowska). According to information passed down from another family member my grandparents were not married until they arrived in America. My Grandmother was taken in by my Grandfather's family and she used the Papuga name. I am not sure if she was formally adopted or not. I do know that they were traveling with Ignacy Sioma to America. My Grandfather was born October 20, 1888 and died August 4, 1961 in Detroit, Michigan. According to his passport which was issued in 1911 his place of Residence was: Janowka, Russia. It lists his address as: Village, Yanovk, Gmina Estate Komarovo, District, Lublin; Region @54, Unit 202. His occupation was farmer. My Grandmother was born 10/6/1890 and died 8/1/1962 - Detroit, Michigan. My Grandfather listed Stanislaw Papuga as his brother and my Grandmother listed Thomas Papuga as her father.
If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it.
