Louise Szymanska is the great, great grand mother of Michael Harris.
Relationship Trail


Michael is the son of Joann L. Alajko.
Joann is the daughter of Anna M. Switkowski.
Anna is the daughter of Joseph E. Switkowski.
Joseph is the son of Louise Szymanska.
Louise, therefore, is the second great grandmother of Michael.


I have nothing on her parents yet. There is a record of someone with the same name as being a home owner in Poland prior to her birth. This may be a path to search for more information. Before I do to much in the old country I want to see how much I need to look for first.
