Pearl Dolka Kalisz

img20190323_10550583

 

Pelagga “Pearl” Dolka Kaliz was born in September 1889 in New York State. Her parents are Valenty and Josepha Dolka.  Both were born in the German occupied area of what was Poland.

In 1900 Pearl was 10 and living with her family at 42 Wolts Ave.  Her siblings were  Stefan Dolka 19, Katie Dolka 17, Joseph Dolka 15, Tomasz Dolka 8, Stanley Dolka 7, and
Agnes Dolka 4.  This was a tough record to find.  Her name on the census was smudged slightly so the transcriber spelled it Pe*ya.  Ages were wrong on the siblings also.  This was a messy transcription.  I found it because I saw two male Dolka living nearby.  I gave them a quick look and they appeared young enough to be nephews.  Stanley was a junior so I followed that and found senior on a public family tree that had an actual source I could look at.  And there they were.

For fifteen years I find no record of Pearl.  In 1915 she is married to Martin Kalisz and has three children: Stamilama Kalisz 4, Edward Kalisz 3,  andJoseph Kalisz 1.

1920 shows the family living at 21 Concord St.  Pearl and Martin still had three of their children with them on Concord; Stella Kalisz 8, Edward Kalisz 6, and Joseph Kalisz 5.

This project has been to find connections between the names on these cards to my family.  Pearl is the physically closests to my family.  Her family lived around the corner from my great grandparent at 18 Newton St.

I found the family again in 1930 still at Concord St.  Stella Kalisz 18, Edward Kalisz 17, and Joseph Kalisz 16 are  still with the couple.  I couldn’t find them after 1930 except for city directories and the New York State Death Index.
