This section of the Family Tree web site contains the
information on the family members of both the paternal Ognoski line and the
maternal Kirschner line.
Your assistance in providing details for each person named in
the tree would be most appreciated. For the offspring that do not yet have
their own page, please retrieve the from this web site. You can complete this page in
Front Page (save to local: Front
Page File) or Microsoft Word (download: Word
File). Alternatively, just send the information by
e-mail. Once we get the basic information for the new additions, we will
add a hot-link to the following genealogical chart. See other instructions
at the bottom of this page.
Note to family contributors:
As we obtain more information, the web site will go back
further in time to record the earliest available information. For example,
it now starts (see directory on the left) with Stanley Ognoski (birth date
unknown) and Julius Kirschner (1905). We know that Julius Kirschner
descended from Gustav Kirschner and that his wife Emilia Kirschner
("Starka") descended from Frank Pal and Marina Jablonska , so those
will eventually become the first links. The goal will be to then go back
further than Gustav and Frank to find the preceding generation, and so on.
The index on the left will change as you move through each
page, to show the offspring of the people under the previous page. As
such, you can walk your way through the various lines in the family tree.
The success of this project will depend on a great extent
to the amount of information that can be collected. Most importantly, we
must start with the oldest generations to collect as much of that information as
possible. You may be surprised to find out how much information you have
in your possession that is of value. For example, do you have your birth
or christening book with notes, photographs and documents (we have the one for
Olga 1954)? Do you have any family bibles, if so look for loose pages or
notes. If you have family pictures in frames, look to see what is behind
the current picture (that is where we found the older pictures of Emilia 1913
For those that want to contribute, to your own page as well
as the pages of others, we can use a standard format (click
here for master) if we can find the
following: (see the web page for Olga
1954 as an example, as that is the most I have for any one person at
At any time we can also add descriptive paragraphs, photographs or
documents to cover any additional information. In particular, copies of
unique documents (early citizenship papers, diplomas, awards, etc.) can be used.
