Maine sailing from Bremen to Baltimore on 29 March 1913, arriving 14 April 1913. He is age 17 [although Ancestry index transcribes this as 37], single, laborer, cannot read or write, citizen of Russia, race or people Polish, permanent residence Tulunka?

[Wheatland PA is in Mercer County, on the western border of PA, near Youngstown OH. In 1910, Franciszek Raupuk (see information about him) arrived in New York, also said he was from Tolanka, and specified his destination as Wheatland, where his contact was Boleslaw Raupuk (see information about Boleslaw Raupuk). So, it looks like Sigismund, John, Franciszek, and Boleslaw might all be related]

Story. Born in Poland, moved to New Jersey, then Pennsylvania, then to Baltimore. Came to US into Ellis Island in 1916 or 1917. His brother sent him to US to avoid WWI.

Story: Galicia. Galicia is a region of SE Poland and NW Ukranian SSR. Borders S on Czechoslovakia, extends from the Carpathians into the Vistula valley. Principal cities are Cracow and Tarnow in Poland, and Lvov and Stanislav in Ukranian SSR. Until 1919 Galicia was an Austro-Hungarian crownland. Polish was official language in section W of San River, Ukranian was language E of river. During WWI, a Polish legion was organized in Galicia and fought on the side of Austria until 1917. The entire region was the scene of heavy fighting. The Paris Peace conference in 1919 assigned all of Galicia to Poland. Under Soviet-Polish treaty of 1945, most of E Galicia was awarded to Ukranian SSR. (from The Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer of the World, 1961, p656)

Story: Galicia. The wikipedia entry for Galicia says "Beginning in the 1880s, a mass emigration of the Galician peasantry occurred. The emigration started as a seasonal one to Imperial Germany (newly unified and economically dynamic) and then later became a Trans-Atlantic one with large-scale emigration to the United States, Brazil, and Canada . Caused by the backward economic condition of Galicia where rural poverty was widespread (see Economy below), the emigration began in the western, Polish populated part of Galicia and quickly shifted east to the Ukrainian inhabited parts. Poles, Ukrainians, Jews, and Germans all participated in this mass movement of countryfolk and villagers. Poles migrated principally to New England and the midwestern states of the United States, but also to Brazil and elsewhere; Ukrainians migrated to Brazil, Canada, and the United States, with a very intense emigration from Southern Podolia to Western Canada; and Jews emigrated both directly to the New World and also indirectly via other parts of Austria-Hungary. A total of several hundred thousand people were involved in this Great Economic Emigration which grew steadily more intense until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. The war put a temporary halt to the emigration which never again reached the same proportions.

Residence, 1921, Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. Based on alleged birthplaces and birthdates of children, should be in Bayonne in 1921 and in Baltimore in 1922.
