To Katarzyna: We are very excited about how you are going to stay in touch with us. Even if our Plachta lines do not connect, we still are glad for the correspondence. You mentioned a Kazimierz Plachta (forgive me if I do not spell name correctly) as your grandfather. I noticed on the Ellis Island records that a Kazimierz Plachta came to the United States in 1902 when he was 30 years of age. I realize this may not relate to your grandfather, but I thought it was interesting. I do not know if the given name "Kazimierz" is rare or not. If the Plachta name is rare, perhaps it is good for the research. If there were numerous Plachtas, it may be harder to find out our history. On the other hand, if there were more Plachtas, there might be more help available from others. My wife's mother (Helen Plachta Kopski) was the daughter of Anthony Plachta and wife Aniela Sodja Plachta. There was an Antonio Plachta who came to the United States in 1909 at age 26, but I don't know if this is the same one.** Perhaps you can help us with the Polish history. One of our Plachta relatives was said to have come from Poland, but we have a certificate that says he was born in Russia. We did not know if some of the history of Poland and its border are connected with Russia. I want to learn more about Poland and its history so that we can converse more intelliegently with you. I should be better informed on our Polish history, but I'm ashamed to tell you I am not. Will continue on another note. I running out of space.
