The Kilar Family

Thomasz Wladyslaw Kilar was born December 8, 1884 in Obertyn Glaicia, Austria. He married Bernice Blasykowski June 23, 1908 in Obertyn, Kolomeja Galicia, Austria (Poland/Ukraine). Thomasz and Bernice immigrated to the United States in 1909 aboard the Kaiserin Auguste Vicoria with a whole $9.00. They entered the United States of America at Hamburg- Ellis Island, NY. Eventually, they ended up in Detroit, Michigan.

They had 10 children.

Eventually, Thomas and Bernice moved to Chicago, Illinois. I will concentrate on the son, Marion, who happens to be my father.
