 I am searching for information and possible family members og my Great-great-Grandparents.My G-G-Grandfather Josef Motkowsky was born in Poland approx 1860. He married Marian Wolanski in 1891. Together with 4 children Michal(8), Anna(4), Katha(2), Rosalia( 1 month) the came to Canada in approx May 1903. Port of Arrival: Halifax, Nova Scotia., Hamburg Ship list. Area of birth was Galicia. They settled in Bruce,Alberta. My G-G-Grandfathers dad died when he was 6yrs and he was sent to live with Priests at 9yrs, his mom may have been alive up until this time. He stayed with the priests and learned the two trades of carpentry and blacksmithing until he was 14 yrs. I would like information on thier life and family in Poland.
