I am searching for the Okonski family who at one time in the early
1900s lived in Kielce, Poland. They still may live there now.
This is what I know:
There were at least three brothers: Bronislaus, Marczin, and Andrej Okonski.
Bronislaus came to the United States as a young
man in the early 20th century (1910-1920). Bronislaus settled in
Buffalo New York. As far as I know Marczin and Andrej stayed in
Kielce.
Bronislaus died in the 1950s. The other two brothers are probably dead
too.
Bronislaus had one daughter Lorraine and three sons Chester, Daniel,
and Ernest.

Based on the N.Y. address given to you by Bill, there was an
Andrea M. Okonski living in that county (Erie) in New York as of June 2011.
Maybe still current or maybe she has moved to La. and the phone numbers found for you by Bill may tell you which.

On the 1940 census at www.familysearch.org the family is living in Cheektowaga, NY.
Bronislaw, wife Josephine, sons Chester (college student), Daniel, Ernie, daughter Lorraine.

Bronislaw born Poland, Josephine born NY.

Looks like Josephine's maiden name was Krukowski (according to 1920 census.)

daliowa verified that Ernest is deceased.

Here is his obituary:
OKONSKI - Ernest, PhD January 2, 2010, dear brother of Chester (Amy) Okonski and the late Daniel (Elaine) and Lorraine B. Okonski; loving uncle of Andrea and Charles (Michelle) Okonski. Mr. Okonski was an Army veteran of WWII.

Daniel and Lorraine are deceased.

So, it appears that as of January 2010:
Chester (Amy) Okonski, Andrea, and Charles (Michelle) Okonski were all alive and well.

None of the people mentioned in this thread so far know about the family in Poland.

If Bronislaus was the only one to come here, and he never mentioned his parents and siblings to his kids, then none of them know about any Polish relatives.

If you are not looking for living U.S. relatives of Ernest maybe try the genealogy or European forums.
