My Boinski, Szewc, Andrzejewski, Rugowski and Zarek ancestors began their lives in America here. They immigrated from the Posen region of Poland. Ignatius Andrzejewski and Jozefa Boinska married in the town of Sadki/Sadke Poland, had a daughter, Leukadia then sailed for America.
They joined Jozefa's sister, Johanna Boinska and husband, Wojciech (Albert) Szewc who had already come to Manitowoc.
