Szymurski/Szymorski family in Havana, Cuba

Can anyone point me in the right direction. Where in Havana can I look for information about the Szymorski/Szymurski family.

I'm looking for the family of Martin (Marcin) and Stella (Stanislawa) Szymurski/Szymorski. Stella's maiden name was Lukaszewska and she married Martin in Philadelphia around 1910. Martin and Stella had 4 children:

Martin and his family lived in Chester at his nephew's Stanislaw Szymurski's house at 3012 W 3rd Street, before moving to Havana, Cuba where I expect he went to look for work (around 1920's). From around 1923 to 1929 Stella, the daughter, was in Poland, but I don't know if she was with relatives or friends. Martin Jr., and Joseph returned to the USA in 1924 (they had been in Havana) and went back to live with their cousin Stanislaw. By 1930 I can only find Joseph in the census for Chester, Delaware Co., PA. Walter seems to have disappeared altogether.

Unfortunately the present generations of the Szymurski family in Chester PA have no idea what happened to their cousins.

Were there any Polish estabishments/churches/groups in Havana around the 1920's?

Were there any censuses taken in Havana around the 1920's?
