 Texans

Land meant prosperity for posterity.
In the 1850s, immigrants from the European region of Upper Silesia, now in Poland, came to Texas.  We are the descendants of those brave settlers, seeking to keep alive their traditions, culture, heritage and memories.

How to locate surnames
Simultaneously press the CRTL key and the F key (on Mac, use Command and F).  A box will open to type your surname; then click "Find." In some browsers, the box appears as a temporary toolbar across the top of your page.  The surname will be highlighted below in white.  Click "Find" again to locate even more occurrences of your surname. On a Mac, use the arrows.  (By the way, this tip also works on other websites!  You're welcome.)
