Polish Musician Search

by Brian Marshall on June 29, 2008

in News

The Polish Texans Website and Brian Marshall are searching for old pictures of Texan Musicians of Polish descent.

This is a “not for profit” collaboration who’s only intent is to recognize those musicians who were an integral part of important family functions such as weddings, funerals, etc. and who contributed entertainment to the society in which they lived. Any costs incurred, on your behalf, for copying pictures will not be reimbursed. Typically we are only talking a few bucks.

Many families have wedding pictures, as well as other social gatherings within the Polish community with musicians providing the entertainment and this is our attempt to gather them together in one place and pay our respects to those individuals. If you wish for your father, grandfather, great grandfather, Uncle, Aunt, or whomever to be recognized in this forum please share these old photograph’s with us.
