A mystery is brewing on the Halvangis/Chardoulias branch of my family tree. Was my great grandmother married once BEFORE she married my great grandfather or is this a records keeping mistake? Here is what I know.
My great grandfather, Adam Pawlowski (1879-1959) was known as “Dziadzio” by my mother and her generation. He was a quiet man, perhaps because he spoke little English. His hands seemed permanently yellowed from cigarettes and he had false teeth that he kept in a glass next to his bed. This is his story.
