Re: Joseph Kalameja

Thank you for the information. I opened the ebook and found his name, but I do not know if the information regarding enlistment dates, etc relate to him or the entire list after that information. I do know that he was in France and that he was wounded, but do not know the dates of any of the information.

I am actually trying to find out if the 4 Kalameja families I have found have a common ancestor in Poland/Germany.

The 4 families arrived in the states at different times, but close to each other with wives and children. Because they all settled in the Buffalo, NY area and all within walking distance to each other, I am assuming that they are related.
I do not have access to any European records

I have the information from the 1900, 1910 and 1930 census and so know who their brother and sisters were at the time, but there are almost no Kalamejas left. There is only my husband, his 2 nieces, my son and a cousin left. Why are there only so few left?

Agnes and Martin arrived in 1873, but do not know where they settled or if they had children.

Jakob and Mary arrived in 1888 and settled in Buffalo, NY I found them on the 1892 census

Jan and Constance arrived in 1892 and they are the start in the States of our branch of the family

Mary also lived in Buffalo, Ny and had 2 sons. I do not know who her husband was or when she arrived.

I have a lot of holes to fill and would like to know if they are all related.

Thanks again for your help
