My name is Ann Sobczak Shaffer. My parents came to the US in 1949. I was the first of 7 children born in the US. I have 4 brothers (Zennon, Steve, John Joe) and 2 sisters (Sophie, Stella). My father's name was Stefan Sobczak. He had 3 brothers (Stanley, Josef and Janek). I know that Janek is deceased. As of 1989 I know that my uncles Josef and Stanley were still alive. My cousin, Jadwiga, (Josef's daughter), wrote to us for a short time, but we have lost track of one another. Last I know my cousin and her family lived in Zelona Gora and my uncle Josef and his wife lived not too far away.
