  Looking for Tadeusz Olszewski's Family


for the family


Tadeusz M.



Looking for Tadeusz Olszewski's Family


Drodzy Państwo,


Zwracam się z prośbą o pomoc w znalezieniu krewnych zmarłego pana Tadeusza Marcelego Olszewskiego. Ja nazywam się Wiesław Drapała i mieszkam od 26 lat w Vancouver, WA. Powodem prośby są odnalezione ostatnio w Nowym Targu b. ciekawe przedwojenne dokumenty rodzinne dotyczące rodziny Olszewskich. Pan Tadeusz Olszewski, przedwojenny policjant z Nowego Targu postanowił uciec w 1939 r. przez ”zieloną granicę” na zachód i poprosił swojego przyjaciela też policjanta o przechowanie dokumentów. Był również mechanikiem lotnictwa i lotnikiem i chciał walczyć dalej w lotnictwie. Faktycznie przedostał się do GB, gdzie był członkiem  polskiego dywizjonu lotniczego albo jako mechanik albo jako lotnik? Przyjaciel powiernik zmarł w 1945 r. a jego potomkom nigdy nie udało się nawiązać kontaktu i myśleli, że poległ na wojnie. Teraz już wiadomo że Olszewski dotarł do Anglii, że przeżył wojnę i po wojnie wyemigrował dalej do USA. Osiadł gdzieś w rejonie Seattle. Być może pracował w Boeingu? Zmarł 03/20/2001 i został pochowany w Renton, WA.

Może ktoś z lokalnej Polonii zna potomków pana Olszewskiego? Rodzina dawnego przyjaciela z Nowego Targu z przyjemnością zwróci te dokumenty do prawowitych właścicieli jeżeli są zainteresowani.

Proszę o kontakt via. email wes.drapala@gmail.com lub text message na komórkę (360) 576-0136

 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet


Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.


Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.




Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
