This record shows that, after my grandfather left for the United States and after the end of the Great War (World War I), my great grandparents lived in the Second Polish Republic, the first independent Polish state in over a century. I don’t yet have a copy of my great grandmother’s death record but, since she was still alive at the time of Teofil’s death, she died sometime after 1933.
