"I want to pay tribute to the Polish families that lived on Palace Hill, Union Street, Standard Street, Stevens Street and elsewhere in Oil City and I need photographs," said Joe Brozeski, founder and promoter of Oil City's Polish Heritage Memorial Park.
The park, located along Spruce Street near the Assumption Church, boasts five black granite memorial markers that pay tribute to the church, Polish-American war veterans, Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Polish Heritage Project, and the Ptak family of Franklin.
Brozeski said there are seven more markers to prepare and install before the park, dedicated in May 2008, is completed.
As Brozeski seeks funding to etch and install Gabreski's monument, he is on a search for pictures of his hometown's ethnic heritage for the next marker. If relevant photographs are located, they will be etched on the stone, he said.
"We used to call that area 'the Wulka' because it reminded everybody of an area in Poland where many of those Standard and Stevens street residents came from," Brozeski said.
Anyone with photographs can contact Brozeski at 677-4090.

Joe Brozeski, coordinator of the local Polish Heritage Project, received a letter from the Library of Congress, which included all 10 of the locally produced audio recordings of sacred music sung in Polish as well as other materials related to the project in its collections. The Oil City-based Polish Heritage Project - an 18-year, 10-recording journey that has preserved the nuanced sounds of a local Polish choir - now stands in the nation's capital as a testament to fading, small-town ethnic church traditions.
Project coordinator Joseph Brozeski sent copies of the project's 10 compact discs, eight lyric books, two devotional books and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Centennial Hymnal to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. He received a thank you letter and grateful acknowledgement last month on the project's undertaking, having first made contact with the library with the help of U.S. Sen.
But Brozeski said having the materials cataloged and made available in the Library of Congress was one of his longtime goals.
With fears that the North Side church may someday close its doors - a fate suffered by countless other Catholic parishes throughout the country - the Oil City businessman has made it a personal mission to see his tightly held ethnic traditions live on through the Polish Heritage Project.
"With the fact that we don't know what is going to happen to Assumption Church, if it's closed, this is going to live on," Brozeski said. "This is going to continue on long after everyone is gone or the church is gone.
"You're not going to find many places that have undertaken a heritage project like this in a small town like ours. It puts Oil City on the map."
An outspoken champion of retaining ethnic tradition and substance within churches, Brozeski believes the Oil City recordings perfectly capture the spirit of faithful ethnic-rich parishioners singing hymns in Polish. For many of the singers, Polish was the language they grew up speaking.
"Churches are losing their ethnicity," he said.
Comments from across the country have been "very positive," Brozeski said. He has a stack of notes from people telling how the "tapes remind me of home" and how "they bring back fond memories."
Information on how to order the compact discs and publications as well as how to offer a memorial/donation to the project is available online at, or by contacting Brozeski at 677-4090.
