Searching for the town of Wyszyniec. It was under Russia in 1910, but I'm trying to determine where it is now. My great grandparents, family names Rokosz and Dangielowicz came from that area to Pennsylvania.

Hello I am looking for information on my grandmother's family. Her maiden name is Maria Anna Zielinska. Born 1869. As far as I know she would hve come from the Posnan area, maybe Kalisce. I would like to find if she had any siblings. I believe she had a sister that emirated to th US. My grandmaoterh arrived in Baltimore arriving on the SS Frankfurt. Can't read the date. She arrived with her daughter. If there is information or links I wouls appreciate it.

I am still searching for information on my married maternal grandparents. Felix wieczorek (1866) and Anna rutkowski (1867-1869) from Torun.Felix immigrated spring of 1890 to u.s. Anna and child age 2 (Francis) immigrated 12/20/1891 on the nurnberg to Baltimore , Md. Felix was a certified woodworker and Anna a dressmaker. They moved north a few years later to Detroit, Mi. Census

The 1910 census shows Simon Rutkowski and Catherine (SZCZEPANSKI) Rutkowski living next door to Felix and Anna. I guess it's possible that Anna and Simon were siblings. I see on Felik's death certificate it shows his father's name as "Skwieryn" and mother's name as "Maryanna" (information provided by his wife Anna). The father's name sounds more like a place name than a person's name.

To muddy the waters a little more ... Andrew Wieczorek's wife was Ursula Rutkowski and they were from Detroit. They are much younger than Feliks and Anna ... but the name and place similarity is interesting!

Thank you so very much for helping me michael. I spent a few hrs at the library today hoping to find Felix or Catherine on a ship manifest. Anna came over with a 2 year old in 1891 so I'm guessing, it had to have been within 2-3 years before her. Possibly to find housing? Or maybe simon and Catherine arrived first?? Now I will take a look and see what I can find on Andrew and ursula. 👍🏻👍🏻

Could Felix's father's name be Seweryn? Also, in the parish of Dobrcz, northwest of Torun, there are quite a few Wieczoreks listed on geneteka.genealodzy.pl

I am researching my mom's family, including the following surnames: Tynik, Belina, Niemiec, Burczyk, Gajewski, Zygulska, Penar, Pelczar, Litorowicz, Pondel, and Polchlopek. Tynik and Pondel are the only surnames i have on her mother's side. All the others are on her father's side. All of these families appear to have lived in Galicia (today Poland and Ukraine and?). Many/most of them from the Sanok area. Do any of these names / locations sound familiar to anyone?

Florence, you might want to join the Sanok County Project. Some of your surnames are listed and it may prove helpful to your search.

Where can I find the Sanok group? My cousin is part of the Strachocki line who came from that area.

Probably the easiest way is to just type in Sanok County Project on the internet search engine and it will come up. On the right side you will see Join. It can also be found under FTDNA Projects.

You might also want to check the Carpatho-Rusyn project, although it is not very active. I am a member of some Facebook groups for Carpatho-Rusyns and Lemkos, and they are very active.

This portrait was found in my Grandfather's files after his death. None of us know who it is. It was found with my Great-Grandparents wedding portrait (neither of them are in this picture). They lived in a Polish neighborhood in Chicago after immigrating in 1912-1913, so portrait most likely was taken between 1913-1920. My Great-Grandfather, Stefan Stoga was from Skrzyszow, Malopolskie, Poland, and my Great-Grandmother, Rosalia Golda was from Blizna, Podkarpackie, Poland. Just sharing on the off chance that someone will recognize someone.

Great Photos Lara. My Polish grandparents were also married in Chicago but more likely a few years prior to the dates you mention. Perhaps they knew one another while in Poland or during their tenure in the Windy City...who knows?

Here is the other portrait of unknown Polish people found in my Grandfather's files next to his parent's wedding portrait. Again: they lived in a Polish neighborhood in Chicago after immigrating in 1912-1913, so portrait most likely was taken between 1913-1920. My Great-Grandfather, Stefan Stoga was from Skrzyszow, Malopolskie, Poland, and my Great-Grandmother, Rosalia Golda was from Blizna, Podkarpackie, Poland.
