I am researching the FISCHER family from Pittsburg, PA. Martin FISCHER emigrated from Lemberg, Austria (L'vov, Poland) in 1913, with his wife Paulina (ROJEWSKA) and children Stephania and Edmund. Three other children were born in Pittsburgh before Martin died in 1918, and Paulina in 1921.
Martin was born in Wisenberg, Austria and Paulina was born in Wyszenka, Austria. At the time of their emigration to the US, Paulina's father Michel ROJEWSKI may have been living in Lemberg, Austria. These towns later became Poland and today are located in Ukraine.

I am specifically trying to find any FISCHER or ROJEWSKI information from the towns of Wisenberg, Wyszenka, Lemberg or L'vov, however, another possible family name is BIALAKOWSKI.

In addition, I'm researching information on William ORR and son James who left their native Scotland for Canada in 1827 and later settled in Bloom Twp, Illinois in 1840. I can descend from there, but have no information regarding their history in Scotland.

Any information would be appreciated. I am willing to share any information I have.
