8/17/2021 I'm Michael Andruch V.

Michael Andruch is my great grandfather. He was the son of Mary and Pawel and was born in the village of Malkowice on February 22, 1891. His wife was Katherine Iliczek, also from Makowice.

He arrived in New York on December 6, 1909 and Katherine arrived sometime in 1913. Michael had siblings that also came to the US and Canada. Piotr came to the US in 1904, Stephan came to the US in 1907 and then to Canada in 1914 and Katrine came to the US in 1914. He was of medium height and build and had blue eyes and brown hair according to his US WWI Draft Registration Card from June 5th 1917. At that time he worked for the Wilson Co. Stock Yards as a laborer.

Michael and Katherine had three children. Michael Jr., Paul and Antonina. The entire family left the US sometime after 1920 to return to Malkowice. It is unknown why they left. On July 22, 1931, Michael Jr. returned to the US, alone, at the age of 19. Paul and Antonina were captured by the Germans and placed in labor camps. Their German post war documents were found at

The entire family was resettled to Rodatychi, a village in the Lvivska oblast, during Operation Vistula. Michael Andruch Jr and my grandmother Nettie visited the family in the late 1970's. I'm in contact with extended family who still reside in Rodatychi. Michael Andruch died in 1978 in Rodatychi at the age of 87.
