If you are looking for ancestors go to www.geo.ed.ac.uk/home/scotland/scotland.html
My son had to do a report while in middle school on his ancestors. His Grandmother Lois Jean Mitchell had lived in Poland also his Great Grandmother Edna McCanuel lived in the Manor. His Great Grandfather worked in the steel mills of Youngstown. The family ancestors came over near 1870 from Dunfermline in the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland. Eliza McCanuel born 1873 of Archibald McCanuel and Eliza Steedman we believe settled in New Castle,PA.
On a recent high school french trip our son visited London where they saw the Latter Day Saints Church that is now home to the greatest source of information on ancestors.
We are very proud that his Aunt Christine Mitchell Yash is the temporary Mayor of Poland.

poland is a silly name for a town. it reminds everyone of polish jokes and poverty. if they want to be respected, they should change the name. it's just lame. sounds ghetto-ish.

Archibald and Elizabeth ended up in Homestead Burrough, PA. Their son, David married Ella Doerr, my great aunt. They are all buried in the Homestead Cemetery along with John, Gilbert, Edward, Archibald Jr McCanuel and James Steadman (spelling from headstone which differs from US Census).

Ok, yes, there are alot of Catholics in Poland - Just take a look at Holy Family - however, you have to admit, the ratio of black/white is amazingly different. It's not becuase blacks don't WANT to live there, it's because you are treated - differently

Yes, there ARE lots of Catholics in Poland. But if you read my initial post it says that these folks are not "Necessary".

The WASPy Poland elite TOLERATE the UNDESIRABLES but if given a choice and the power to act on their preference, would ban them from the village and township as well.

Remember Judge Smail's assertion as Bushwood president....only WE should have these privileges.
