Furtek Collection

Mr. Furtek in his capacity as a notary public helped many Polish Americans in the United States. Among others, he dealt with legal issues of displaced persons being sponsored to live in the United States, and issues facing heirs living in the United States who had claim to land in post-war Poland. A large percentage of the papers deal with sponsoring family members living in Poland that wished to immigrate to the United States. The cases were especially difficult when we consider that Poland in the second half of the 1940s was a land in utter chaos with prewar legal and legislative systems absent or not operational.
