Am wondering if Edward Joswiak is related to Vincent and Josephine Joswiak of Clintonville and Ted Joswiak from Texas as well as Joswiaks from Winona, MInnesota and Chicgao, Illinois area.

If so, we are related.

Aunt Josie and Uncle Vince were my aunt and uncle.

Aunt Josie was a Sloma/Slomkowski. She was the daughor of Apolina Sloma.

Family reunions have been held in the Bessemer, Michigan area fior three years.

We would certainly like to have more attendees.

Am looking forward to your response.
