THOSE PLACES THURSDAY
Continuing on with my "Genealogical Bucket List", my #2 place is Srebrna Gora in Dolnoslaskie, Poland. My third great grandfather Joannes Gruszka married his wife (my 3rd great grandmother) Marianna Pubylowska in this town in 1824. Joannes was 40 years old when he got married while Marianna was 28. I don't know whose hometown this was -- whether it was Marianna's, or Joannes' or possibly they both lived here.
My knowledge of Poland is very limited but I do know that Srebrna Gora is located in the south west corner of Poland. It is just north of the Czech Republic border. It is just east of a town named Nowa Ruda.
When my Grandmother Lillian's parents and older brothers immigrated to the US from Poland before Lillian's birth, they listed Ruda as their last residence. I wonder if this is the same Ruda. I better get back to my research ....
