Polish Hungarian Family Tree this may not be the same family..names do not match...
not very reassuring for the rest of my research but strange too that others would have similar names. interesting? a whole other family? or a mystery....interesting for sure! be sure to check closely when comparing family trees where names may be similar but not a match. so far i have many with matching information with the following info below...

this census looks more correct!~

JACOBS---------- HUNGARIAN------------

joseph jacobs sr parents -frank and mary olaszka hungary---mary was found in an ellis island record as maria jakab and her father was listed with the last name takacs still in hungary

children of frank and mary -al jacobs, joseph jacobs sr., steve jacobs and mary jacobs major

children of joseph jacobs sr. and estelle sobka jacobs -joseph jacobs jr and elaine jacobs farrell.

i had been told a kind of crazy story of how my great grandfather had fled the country of hungary and found a passport on the boat to america which is how we got the last name jacobs. however that is pretty crazy and according to professional genealogy you have to take out the crazy stories and look at the facts. fact number one jacobs could have been spelled many different ways. fact number two the boat records to ellis island show one maria jakab with children. hmmm. another interesting fact about Hungary is how customs have Magyars(Hungarian) using their first name as their last name and their last name as their first name. another twist! so now i am wondering about checking out the fact that frank and mary jacobs may have been jakab and mary ferenz? and need to check into the ellis island records a little more before changing any information which seems to make sense that i have already found with the last name jakab. fun solving family mysteries eh? i am excited to at least check into it! more research ahead...However, here is what ancestry found on immigration records... :)


Frank Jacob's ship manifest:

Ferencz Jacab
Last place of residence: Olaszka
Date of arrival:03. 07. 1909.
Age: 37y, married
Whence he came: Wife Mary Jacab, Olaszka
Ship of Travel: Pennsylvania
Port of Departure: Hamburg

well thank you! that just took all the mystery out of my search! now if i can find the actual document i will add it here at a later time.

Leon and Wanda Sobka my great grandparents who immigrated here from Poland. this is the actual church in which they were married in newark, new jersey in 1907. i found the immigration document from ellis island and through and facebook have found many more relatives all the way back to poland and am working on the family tree back to the 1700s! thanks to contacts found on i cannot seem to find him on the immigration ellis island records on a second look hmmm. and is it ciesielska  cause therre is no wanda on an immigration list by that name... i did find wanda czieselska ethnicity russia, polish last place of residence kiewi russia date of arrival march 20, 1907 age at arrival 19 gender female marital status single ship of travel statendam port of departure rotterdam, holland manifest line number 0030 pAGE 0224


some of my favorite photos of Estelle and Joseph Jacobs Sr. my grandparents. my role models. my grandma always said even if you have not one dollar walk tall and proud as though you had hundreds. she also said no crying. always smile. for when you smile the world smiles with you.
the photos shown are of my grandpa Joe.
and below is the story of my grandfather his baseball injury and a miracle recovery
my grandpa joe loved bowling.

the Newark Maples was a minor league pro baseball team. This is the only surviving information I have ever seen anywhere on the internet of this team. If anyone else has ever heard of them please contact me. i can imagine with the scribbled notes on the first page of the red and white flyer my Grandma Estelle, who always insisted we call her Babci, probably writing notes on the bus ride to another girl... 
me and my dad joseph j. jacobs jr. in new jersey a celebration of life and a tour of the big apple a once in a lifetime experience with my dad.
i am guessing this is a very old photo of my grandpa joe as a child.(bottom photo) i am have taken great pains to ensure it is handled properly so as to last possibly a few more generations! always wear gloves when viewing old family heirlooms and always keep them out of sunlight heat cold and moisture etc...i am learning how to preserve old photos and documents through the family genealogy center they have many great tips!

  10. after listening to albinyana jarzebska on google translate it sounds more like albina and anna. jarzebska is not found on many searches. i did find a jastrzebska
    possibly the name was shortened after immigrating to the US. i will check on the website for more possible matches. birth and death dates would help to find this name.


    elzbieta and albinyana are a little bit close in sound possibly? i will try again tomorrow...


    more names on us people search that may sound the albinyana

  13. sobka link i have found on the internet today.

  14. thank you again to those genealogy experts and professionals and family and friends who have helped in translating and helping find records. Your generosity is very much appreciated!

  15. welcome tanya and wanda! my long lost second and third cousins~

  16. We have done (my daughter myself and my mother have done the 23andme dna test.) We have found many "matches"
    Long lost cousins. However 23andme only.goes back to 4th or 5th might be a better option for a test as it links directly to matches there also.
    My daughter as a great researcher found census records and boat records for the jacobs or jacob side of our family. Hence solving a roadblock to my prior research
