My grandfather was born Aleksander Szterka on August 13 1887 in Dobrzyn now Golub Dobrzyn. His parents were Leon and Katarzyna Kacprobowicz Szterka. Leon was born in Dobrzyn and Kattrzyna was born in Cieluchow. I have the names of some of Alexander siblings. That is about all that I know. How do I find records that tell me when his sblings were born, married, died and name of children. I am just lost Thank you. Barbara Smith
Here are a few ideas that may help you.
First, is a link to a FamilySearch Blog article that will take you to a place where you can sign up for a free 20-minute session with an expert genealogist. (click English above the purple rectangle within the article)
Next, is a Help Center article link that gives you some research tips.
We hope these suggestions help.
Best wishes in your search for your ancestors!1
I signed up for the 20 min session. The password I was given was invalid and I couldn't get on zoom.
I am sorry to hear about that, Barbara. I will ask around to see if anyone knows where we can get help for that.1
Barbara, These free 20-minute sessions with an expert genealogist are created through the Family History Library in Salt Lake. If you were unable to sign in to your Zoom meeting because the password was invalid, you would need to contact the Family History Library. It is now closed due to COVID, but perhaps you can call them at 801-240-6996. You could also sign up for another session and see if it works the second time.
@Barbara Smith5 can you provide the Family Search Family Tree ID number for each of the people you mentioned. That will give us a clear picture to refer to.
This comment will also bring your post to the top of the page to see if we can get other volunteers to add some ideas.
Go to the Wiki by clicking the link below, on free family history consultations - it covers how to set them up and then what to do when it is your time to do the virtual meeting. I find this link very helpful.
These 20 minute consultations are so very helpful - try again.
Enjoy today and please keep asking questions - we love to help! Cindy1
Hi, I set up a virtual consultation. I was sent an invalid passcode and I could not get on.
Alexander Szterka L22-M2L Leon Szterka L22K-Q8C Katarzyna Kacprowicz L25D-2NC
Leon's children: Jan Alfons L25D-L5M Jozef L25D-G7Q Julia L25D-LV3 Pelagia L25D-L82 and
Zygmut L25-LPR Szterka is the surname for all.
I have Franciszek CH15-KV and Marianna Klosinska GH15-Q8B Szterka as Leon's parents.
Franciszek's parents were Fredrick GH15-FN18 and Marianna Adamska GH1R-W27.
I hope these are correct. Barbara0
