Hi and welcome to my blog. I’m Leon. My father’s parents were both born in Poland, and all of my mother’s grandparents were born in Poland. Well, in reality Poland as a nation did not exist when they left. But they were from what at one time had been Poland. They all came to the US between about 1886 and 1907. They left their families and friends behind to come to the greatest country on earth and to start new lives for themselves and their families. They were wildly successful–there are a lot of us, their descendants, here now. I have not forgotten all they did to bring me the good life I enjoy. This blog and this web site were inspired by them, and are a tribute to all of them and their hard work, and to all my family and friends, Polish-American or not.
