I am researching the families of Luigi Rufo and his brother Nicole, Anthony Abookire, Marie Catherine Mady, Francizek Zajkowski, Antonina Chmielewski, Alphons Mika and Aniela Szmela. They are the grandparents of myself and my wife. These families emigrated from Abruzzi, Vitella/Civitella Italy; Beit el Dine, Syria; Mahle, Lebanon; and Pomorze, Kombornia and Domaradza, Poland. They settled mostly in Lorain and Elyria, Ohio. One branch of the Mady family settled in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. We have compiled a great deal of information about the ancestors and descendants of these families and we are willing to share information with those who might have a legitimate interest or need. We would be interested in hearing from anyone who might have a connected family branch or who might point us to additional information on these families.
