Wiktor (Victor) Biega, was born 1888 in Mrzygłód, a small town just north of Sanok in Galicia, a province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire since the partition of Poland in the late 18th century. At this time it is not known which of the several Biegas, living in Mrzygłód at the time, were his parents. He emigrated to the United States and arrived on the steamship "Neckar" in 1909.
