For over 150 years, Milwaukee has been home to a large community of people of Polish descent. The Milwaukee Polonia Project hopes to show the interweaving, intertwining family trees that resulted in this community. It is hoped that, eventually, all the families can be connected to one another. The Milwaukee Polonia Project is also a means to explore our common history and celebrate our shared heritage.

THE ACTUAL DATABASE OF THE TREE IS NOW LOCATED AT THE MILWAUKEE POLONIA PROJECT TREE at Tribal Pages. (We still have much work to do, so don't assume that families are shown completely.) YOU DO NOT NEED A PASSWORD TO ACCESS INFORMATION ON DECEASED INDIVIDUALS.

Featured Profile #38 - Frank. L. E. Drozniakiewicz

Frank L. E. Drozniakiewicz (1880 - 1930)

From Memoirs of Milwaukee County, edited by Jerome Anthony Watrous,  at page 537:
 A photograph of what may be Frank L.E. Drozniakiewicz in his drug store is part of the UWM digital collection.  The photograph was Roman B. J. Kwasniewski, Featured Profile #21.

Note:  the extensive memoirs of Maciej Wojda (or Woida), the father-in-law of  Frank L. E. Drozniakiewicz, can be found in Poles in Wisconsin by Susan Gibson MikoĊ›.


Relation to Nearest Featured Profile: Anton Komorowski (Featured Profile #37):  Son of Son-in-law

Path From Nearest Featured Profile:  Anton Komorowski  > daughter Cecilia (Komorowski) Drozniakiewicz > husband, Frank Drozniakiewicz > son (by first marriage) Frank L.E. Drozniakiewicz  

Path from Alternate Featured Profile:  Roman B. J. Kwasniewski: (Featured Profile #21):  Roman B. J. Kwasniewski > wife, Mary (Drozniakiewicz) Kwasniewski > brother, Casper Drozniakiewicz > wife, Angeline (Jankowski) Drozniakiewicz > sister, Mary (Jankowski) Ruszkiewicz > husband, Albert Ruszkiewicz > brother, Lawrence Ruszkiewicz  > Anna (Komorowski) Ruszkiewicz > sister, Cecilia (Komorowski) Ruszkiewicz > husband, Frank Drozniakiewicz > son (by first marriage) Frank L.E. Drozniakiewicz  
(There may be a more direct route from Mary (Drozniakiewicz) Kwasniewski to Frank L. E. Drozniakiewicz, but I have yet to discover it.)
