My great grandmother Josefa smiegel was born 16 Oct 1886(Poznan, Poland according to her naturalization papers) She came over 17 Feb 1908 on ship SS Albano, She came over with her sister Katherine.

Josefa parents name according to the marriage certificate is Walenty Smiegel and Mary Pietrzak.
She married my Great- grandfather 7 Feb 1909 at Our Lady of Czestochowa in Brooklyn, New York. The marriage Certificate shows she was from Germany. (They had 7 children here in Brooklyn, NY american names but birth shows polish spelling Pauline married Stanislaus Mazurkiewicz, Walter married Frances, Genevieve never married, Chester married Helen, Catherine married Frank Shirripa, Stanley married Janice and Helen never married)

According to my father he use to go to a farm in Massachusettes as a boy and visit relatives. Not sure if relationship was maternal or paternal side of great grandparents. He believed the last name was Losik. (I also have mass funeral card that shows a Michael Losik dod February 14 1959.

I also have a mass funeral card for an August Pietrzak date of death November 5 1939

looked at Family History Library(LDS)- no help. Have information on many geneology websites ancestry.com, kindred konnections, familylink.net, have legacy software to help - nothing. Does this sound familiar or any ideas where else I can look? It would be appreciated
