JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Found: G-Grandmother = Mrs. Adolph KWASNY #general

Dear Genners,

Since 1998, I have been searching for my great-grandmother. We had several
surnames to choose from, as we believed she married at least once after the
death of her husband Herman RING in Bielsko-Biala in the 1880's.

After due diligence, and using a keyword search by street name on a well known
subscription site I finally found g-grandmother KWASNY today. Mrs. Adolph
KWASNY is listed in the Connecticut City directories in a house on Pine Street
in Fairfield. This 1899 record matches another for 1899 where Clementina and
Leopold RING (her children with Herman) are listed together, with Clementina
being removed to Bridgeport.

Locating this record finally answers the "K" surname question that many of you
have tried to assist me with. The K surname on my grandfather's 1893 Fairfied,
CT birth record is KWASNY. His father was Adolph KWASNY. My grandmother was
married to a RING and then married Adolph KWASNY. My grandmother was Helena
BLOCH-RING-KWASNY!

My sincere thanks to everyone on this list who assisted me to this point. Now
the question is, why isn't my grandfather living with my great-grandmother in
1899 when he was six yoa? Why isn't he living with the other two half siblings
in 1899? And, where is Mrs. Adoph KWASNY's other son, John? Ah, research! One
find leads to hundreds of questions! But isn't it grand? Finally a break
through after 6 years of not finding anything on her!

Regards,
