I'm Polish and I'm looking for my family which went to USA many years ago. My great-great-grandmother's name was Marianna Bieńkowska (this is surname after marriage, I don't know what was her maiden name). Her siblings and parents went to USA and only she remained in Poland. One of her sisters probably married Skowroński in USA and they had two daughters at least. I know this from photos which they sent to my great-grandmother's sister - Marianna Karpińska (nee Bieńkowska). They also sent a lot of things from USA, for example, a doll. The photos depict these daughters. One of the pictures depicts nurses in the hospital. There is Elżbieta among them. The other picture depicts young girl – Anna Ludwika. She is 9 years old. The photos were taken in 1947 or shortly after it. In short, I'm looking for people who know something about the fate of my predecessors. Texts on the back of the photos are:
Anna Ludwika Skowrońska – my youngest daughter. She is 9 years old.
This is my daughter Elżbieta, she left school at the hospital on 15th February 1947. She is my second daughter. She is 21 years old.
The texts are in Polish and they are not written correctly (something like this: I is my daughter Elżbieta). I attach these photos. On the photo with nurses there is an arrow which shows Elżbieta. The other photo shows young Anna Ludwika. I also have the photo of Marianna Karpińska. If you know something abou them, please contact me. I woud be very grateful. I hope that my English is understandable :)
One suggestion would be to search through Ellis Island immigration data to find out where they were heading when they came to the US. Do you know what state they settled in? What city? Anything you can see about the name of the hospital where the photo was taken?
My mother's side of the family came from Galicia, and I've had very good luck using the Bukowsko triangle genealogy site with help from people on both sides of the Atlantic. Maybe there are Americans looking for their Polish ancestors and you just have to find a way to connect with them. Good luck!

I have been looking for relatives in USA, in Chicago area.
My great-grandmother left Orava (district of Slovakia, former Austria-Hungar or Czechoslovakia), village called Polhora (or Oravska Polhora or Arva Polhora in Austria-Hungar times). She was Katarina Revaj (unfortunately I dont know birth name), she was married at home to guy with surname Revaj (or Revai, Revay). She went to US in early 1900´s. She re-married here to Polish immigrant with surname Zomer (or Somer, Zommer, Sommer - I am not sure). I am not sure if they had children, but maybe yes. After wedding she used surname of her new husband. She re-married after she found out that her former husband died.
I know only that I should have relatives near Chicago. My great-grandmother lived there.
Bith-place of my great-grandmother, my village, is located at north of Slovakia, at border with Poland. There is map
