Re: Wojciech Pozdol - Poland to Chicago, IL

In Reply to: Wojciech Pozdol - Poland to Chicago, IL by Felicia Watson of 55

Hello Felicia,

My name is Brian Posdal. I am the Grandson of Peter Posdal. According to my later father, Hilard (possibly Hillary on his original birth certificate), Peter changed the spelling of Pozdol to Posdal to 'Americanize' it. I know that my grandfather was born in 1891 and passed in 1973. Also, that he settled in the Jefferson Park area, more precisely at 5547 W. Windsor in Chicago. This is the address I grew up also. I also believe if memory serves me correctly that my grandfather's wife's name was Helen. My father also had a sister (my aunt) named Emily but went by the name Sue. She lived next door to us at 5545 W Windsor with her husband. I hope this helps or doesn't hinder your search for answers.

Brian
