Storyboard Text

  • In the early 1900s, my great great grandfather, great great grandmother, great grandfather, and great grandmother decided to migrate to the US.
  • They decided to migrate to Detroit, a booming economic city, to find better jobs and live a better life.
  • After stopping in England, they entered Detroit through Nova Scotia through the St. Lawrence Seaway. 
  • Still, life wasn't all that easy. There were many anti-Polish people in Detroit, and even more generally anti-immigration people. 
  • Just to be able to work and be accepted in Detroit, my family members had to change their last name from Pietrykowski to Stone, as Pietrykowski was a very Polish name. 
  • They left behind family in Poland, but being the broken family that they were, they never sent remittances or had any contact with them.
