  • Birth Certificate from St. Michaelís in Pielgrzymka

    This image is a digital photo of the birth record of Anna Popowczak, from Mayfield, PA that was provided by her daughter, Agnes Tomcavage of Mayfield. Annaís first husband, Jan Kiechardt of Mayfield, requested this record by letter from Fr. Joannes Myszkowski, the parish priest of St. Michaelís in Pielgrzymka. The certificate is dated 2 January 1903, about 13 years after Jan and Anna came to this country.

    Note that the certificate says that Anna was born 22 December 1872 in house #2 in Huta Samokleska, was Greek-Catholic and of legitimate birth; that her father and mother were Joseph and Maria Popowczak, and that Joseph was a farmer from Huta Samokleska. Note also that the certificate gives the names of Annaís grandparents and the surnames of her great-grandparents.

    The certificate also provides the name of the midwife who delivered Anna, Helena Fundalewicz, and those of her godparents, Joannes Pawlak and Theodosia, the wife of Michael Pawlak, a farmer.
