SZCZUKOWSKI posted by AL M. on Monday, September 20, 1999

Have reason to believe that my great-uncle Anthony SZCZUKOWSKI was Pastor of St. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church in Taunton. The years that he was there were 1919-1921. Would like to know if this is true and where he was assigned afterwards. He somehow ended in Detroit where he died in 1944. Appreciate any help.
