Jozef married Marianna Klosak and took care of niece Branislawa Sanetra
1911 | Minneapolis, Minnesota
Marianna Klosak married Jozef Wojtas abt 1911. Branislawa ("Bessie") Sanetra immigrated with Marianna. They arrived in Chicago, right as the city was totally changing their addressing & grid system. Marianna & Branislawa looked for Adam for abt 3 months, but couldn't find Bessie's father Adam Sanetra, so they went to Minneapolis. In abt 1923, Adam said he saw her for one afternoon, and that's all he would say about it. Jozef & Marianna Wojtas were the last people we know of, that saw Branislawa. We don't know if Bessie was raised by them or sent to an orphanage. Here is a link to my blog of where I write postings about trying to find my Polish roots. Including resources I find. In the United States, most of my family settled in Chicago.
