1926 — Extended Family in Berezno 1926 – To commemorate the 150th anniversary of American independence, elementary and grammar school children throughout Poland sent personally signed greetings to the United States. These were bound in many volumes as the Polish Declarations of Admiration and Friendship for the United States, now archived at the Library of Congress. This page from Volume 94 is signed by children from Berezno, including Natalja Parfomuk and Jan Parfomuk, as well as two children named Siliwonczyk. (It is interesting that another child has the last name “Seliwonczuk,” which seems to be just a different spelling of the same name, probably from another branch of the family.) These children could have been Nikifor and Justyna’s niece and nephews from both sides of the family. Later in life, Walter talked about a cousin who used to babysit him in Berezno, which may have been Natalja.
