My search of family mystery's


I grew up in a family where nothing was ever talked about, I knew my paternal grandfathers name and that he was from England but that was it, On my mothers side I knew my grandmother but she had been married 5 times and buried them all, but I never knew my grandfather or where he was born or even his name, my grandmother who said she was from Poland and would hardly speak English came from Hungary with her father at age one ?? Just found this out in the last six months so the search goes on. Poland+Zyblowicz & Simala [Shimala} England +Birkbeck & Crawford Wales + Jones
