In the meantime I have posted here some basic info with a photo of the ship Dundalk Bay which brought the Sapiecha migrants to Australia in the year 1950..

The Dundalk Bay. She was built as the cargo ship Nurnberg in germany 1936. During WW2 she was converted to a repair ship for the German Navy.In May 1945 she was captured by the British in Copenhagen and converted into a depot ship.In 1947 she was transferred to the MOT and in 1948 sold to H.P.Lenaghan of Belfast and renamed Dundalk Bay. In 1949 she became an emigrant ship for service from Europe to Australasia. In 1951 she reverted to a normal cargo ship. In 1957 she was sold to Duff Herbert & Mitchell of Liverpool and renamed Westbay sadly on 2nd September 1962 she arrived in Hamburg for breaking up. later i found this # i remember the Westbay being laid up in Albert Edward Dock in the river Tyne for many years early in the 1960’s. there was a note of Chinese buyers being interested in her in 1961 but the following year she was broken up in Hamburg

Hi to the fans of the Sapiecha Family network..

My name is Henry Sapiecha & I am the administrator & owner of this site.

henry sitsDONNA'S WEDDING HS (1)

Henry Sapiecha with his father Antoni Sapiecha at Henry’s daughter [Donna-Lee] marriage to Shane Eyers in Toowoomba Qld Australia

The information to be published in this official Sapiecha family site is compiled from family records & anecdotal accounts from the Sapiecha family members.

Sometimes there are problems with gaining such information from family members because of whatever reasons.

Currently I have had serious problems in gaining information from my sibling sisters about our parents parents [A & J Sapiecha]. This can be easily overcome as they appear to know nothing anyway. We have the resources to get accurate info from other family members about the Sapiecha family & I shall publish these articles as they are provided.

It just appears that the sibling girls of mine have their noses out of joint with the Sapiecha clan because they have married into other families & are no longer part of the Sapiecha clan.

We will just continue our pursuit of information into the Sapiecha clan regardless

LOTS & LOTS MORE TO COME-WOW….!!!

THE MEAT IN THE SANDWICH-IS THAT YOU?

sandwich-image www.foodpassions.net

Spread thinly between supporting their ageing parents and helping their own children find a stable financial footing, a generation of Australians find themselves sandwiched in the middle. It may seem overwhelming but with proper planning, you can escape the sandwich, support those you care for and still live the life you want.

Whether you look up or down your family tree, demographic and economic changes in Australia mean more of the people you care about are likely to need financial support.

Looking up the family tree

People are living longer. In 1901, only 4% of Australians were aged 65 years or older. By 2010, this figure had risen to 13.5%, and is estimated to increase to up to 23% by 2041.*

As your parents age you may be called on to care for them in ways you may not be emotionally and financially prepared for. While the likelihood and timing of these events will vary, you can plan for them with strategies that include:

  • Legal measures such as enduring power of attorney give you the power to make financial decisions on behalf of your parents. If they lose capacity, it makes it much easier for you to make decisions that protect them and their assets.
  • Expert investment planning can help your parents purchase aged care or nursing home accommodation and services if the need arises.
  • Appointing a professional trustee to manage day-to-day financial affairs for your parents can ensure their assets are expertly managed, allowing you to spend time with your parents rather than their accountants.

Looking down the family tree

Looking down the family tree means looking out for your children, no matter how old they are. Good financial pre-planning for your children can cover a range of issues:

  • Helping them buy their own home, but doing so in a way that doesn’t affect your own future lifestyle. Tax, superannuation, insurance and estate planning approaches can make this possible.
  • Ensuring your children or grandchildren are carefully considered in situations such as divorce or blended families.
  • Protecting vulnerable children. Some children need extra care, and money alone isn’t enough.

Financial Advice

Plan for your peace of mind

The reality is that someone you care about is likely to need your financial assistance at some point – it may be your parents, your partner, children or grandchildren. That’s why it’s so important to look up and down the family tree when reviewing or planning your financial future. And that includes looking after yourself with the right medical and life insurance cover.

A plan will help you secure your financial future in a tax effective way, underpinned by thoughtful consideration rather than being created under the emotional weight of an emergency.
