Dobosz Family Relations

“I have attached some photos that I have from my deceased cousin that I am trying to identify the people in. I hope you can put these on your site in hopes someone would recognize the people in the photo.

“The photos were all taken around the Chicago Heights, Harvey, Calumet City areas in the early 1900’s. Some may have belonged to the Dobish (Dobosz) and/or the Raczykowski family at some point a long time ago.

“Surnames I am researching in the southern areas of Cook County include: DREJAS, DOBOSZ / DOBISH, SOBOTA, and MACKIEWICZ.”

If you can identify anyone in any of these photos or help with the family research, please email Tami.
