As of Sept. 2003, the closest immigration record I can find to Herman Miazga is for Heronim Miazga from Frampol, Russia. His ethnicity is listed as Russian and his race as Polish. He came into New York on March 1, 1912 at the age of 17 on the ship Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm leaving Bremen, Germany. The manifest records his nearest relative as what looks to be his mother Paulina or perhaps Canlina Miazga in Frampol, Lublin, Russia (now Poland - as of 2004). He lists his destination as Buffalo, N.Y. to be with his brother, Leonard Miazga. Also on the ship's manifest are two women that appear to be his sisters: Joanna and Weronika Miazga of Frampol, both listed as 24 years old. They list their father as what appears to be Andrzy Miazga of Frampol.
Note: Frampol in the Provence of Lubelskie, formerly called Zamos'c'
New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 dated July 3, 1906 record Leonard Miazga aboard the ship S.S. Kroonland leaving Antwerp June 23 and coming into New York. He is 25 years old from Frampol, Russia and is to visit his brother, Konstanty Miazga in Oil City, PA. His nationality is listed as Russian and his race as Polish.
Interestingly, this same database records Leonard Miazga entering New York on March 2, 1906 aboard the SS. Pennsylvania after leaving Hamburg, Germany on February 13. He is 30 years old from Frampol, Russia and is to visit his brother, Konstanty Miazga in Oil City, PA. His nationality is listed as Russian and his race as Polish. His calling or occupation appears to be "Butcher" and he can read and write. His passage was paid for by his father.
The 1910 Federal Census for New York, Erie Co., 1-Wd Lackawanna, District 279, page 56A, dated May 9, 1910 records Leonard Miazga (29 - Russian / speaks Polish) living with his brother, Konstanty Miazga (21 - Russian / speaks Polish), and his wife of 1 year, Iniela (19). Also in the household are a brother, Joseph Miazga (19) and an Uncle, Andrew Miazga (40). This is probably Herman's family. Dates of immigration for this family are: Leonard (1906), Konskanty (1900), Joseph (1909), Andrew (1908). They all work at the Steel Plant.
A possible listing for the Miazga family from the 1915 New York Sate Census: Buffalo, Ward 21, Erie County records Leon Mizwa (29) and his wife Jadwiga (27) and children Wallie (3) and Leon (6/12). Also in the household is a brother, Jacob Wizwa (31) living at 96 Howell Street. Nearby are Blazie Mizwa (28) and his wife Francis (22) also at 96 Howell Street. All adults are listed as born in Austria. However, this is NOT our family becasue the 1920 Federal Census for Buffaloo, NY records Leonard (35) and Jadwiga (31) Miczwa with children Walter (7) and Leon (5) as well as brother Jacob Miczwa (38) living at 96 Howell Street.
Leonard married Caroline circa 1911 in Lackawana, Erie Co., N. Y. (Caroline was born about 1891 in Poland and died after 1940 in Lackawanna, Erie Co., N. Y..)
