Who am I? Found this online - seems sad he is destined to be classified as "unknown"...I truly hope someone recognizes him..His helmet says it all
This is a photo I discovered online, showing my grade school, way before I was born and would attend. The School had been rebuilt and I attended it for 8 years. The school is no longer in it's original spot, it's been demolished but some of the bricks were used in the new school at the new location. It was originally at an intersection called Goodals corners - then it was Big Hollow, Ingleside. The New Big Hollow is still considered Ingleside but is far from the original location.
Front Row Center - Leonard Konieczka - Believed to be in Papau New Guinea..He was a PFC Co. 565 Sig. A.W., B.M
This was in a box of photo negatives found in Leonard Konieczka's Estate...the location could be in New Guinea...somewhere between 1942-1945
New Guinea residents...where Leonard Konieczka served in the Army - '42/'45
Wedding May 1942: The Bride is Alice Klawinski and the groom is Leonard Konieczka - I have no clue why or who the angry wedding guest is...and it looks like her male companion is holding her back from something she is contemplating!
Brothers saying good-bye: The person in uniform is believed to be Casmir P Klawinski...The tall man to his left is either Henry or Daniel Klawinski - No notations on photo
Somethin Fishy: The woman on the viewers right...next to the boy holding a fishing rod is Alice (Klawinski) Konieczka...who married Leonard Konieczka.. looking closely at the 1942 license plate on vehicle in photo..people back then barely noted any photo, so the only clues are what items in photo could possibly be dated..background, car lic plates..etc.
School Days: Leonard Konieczka School photo 1927...he was born about 1916/1917 - so in this photo he is probably about 9/10 yrs old

Grace Bergloff Viewer's Left to Right Joseph, Stella and 2 unknown children.. ca. before 1942, as Grandpa Joe passed away in 1942. Together Josef and Stella had to the best of our knowledge 12 children: Casimer, Chester, Eugenia, Loretta, Alice, Florian, Lucille, Daniel, Henry, Alfred, Elaine and one stillborn baby girl. Stella's maiden name was Suchecki and her parents names were: Josef Suchecki who married Maria David. I loved my Grandma a lot and remember how warm and safe it made me feel when she wrapped her arms around me whenever I was afraid or sad. I think I was somewhere between 3 and 5 when she passed away.
