Researching Wilczek, Danielczak, Bafia, and Zientek - all from Galicia near the southern border with Slovakia. Many left Poland and settled in Chicago, Illinois or Simpson or Lilly, Pennsylvania.
Researching the names Myslywchuk (many different spellings) and Paskiw from the Sokal Galicia Austria area, according to historical records. Myslywchuk emmigrated to Canada in 1903 with wife and two boys and settled in Manitoba Canada. Paskiw emmigrated in 1927 and also settled in the Manitba Canada area.Is anyone familiar with these names or have any information on them.
Researching surnames Galarowicz, Ciezopka/Ciezobka, Lesnitke/Lesnicka, Kowalszyk from Ostrowsko and Lopuszna in Malopolskie and Poremba and Reupala / Rapala from Zurowa. My great-grandparents Regina Ciezopka (b 1879) and Anton Galarowicz (born 1882) came to Fayette County, Pennsylvania and were married there in 1903. Aniela Reupala (b 1865) and Jozef Poremba (b 1863) were married in Poland. Any connections on these names and/or places?
Hi! I am researching the surname Skupien' and Tomasik. I have a Declaration of Intention to become a US citizen dated 4/16/1913 for Andrzej Skupien'. It indicates his birthday as 11/6/1870 and was born in Odrowanz, Poland-Austria. There are several towns by this name, but given the name distribution in Poland, I believe it is the one in the Podhale/Galacia area. He arrived in the US 3/28/1897 and died 9/14/1937. In 1899, his wife to be, Karoline Tomasik, arrived. Karoline was born 10/4/1876 and came from Sadkowa, Jaslo Poland. She lived until 7/23/1965. I do not know if either had brothers or sisters, although I'm sure they did. I have found the Skupien' name in the book "Zapomnlane Podhale" ISBN 83-921074-0-3, but have not been able to determine if and how they might be related. There was a land ownership map with Skupien' as #22, with "(1617)" beside the name. The property was in Odrowaz. Other references to Skupien' came from the book, listing Wojciech Skupien' as przysie of Pieniazkowice in 1818, a Mateusz Skupien' as wojt in 1822, and Jacek Skupien' for something in 1848. The book is all in Polish. Family Search listed a Jozef Skupien born in 1863, also from Pieniazkowice. Again, no idea if they are related to my Grandfather. My father Michael Scupien, was born 7/10/1900 and died 10/2/1977 in Beaverton Oregon. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks!
Hello, I am a new member of this group. My father was born around Ternopil (Tarnopol) , southeast of Lwow. The names I am researching are Redchuk/Redczuk, Bortnyk, Juzwa, Sawicki, Drzewiecki, Dowkopolyj
I'm confused when it comes to Galacia. I'd not heard of it until a little while back when I found my great grandparents had come from Galacia before they emigrated to the USA. My great grandfather was Adolf Lapidus who was Russian and his wife was Sarah who was German. I got this information off my grandmother's birth certificate. There is no surname for Sarah. All it says is Sero ----. I know that she became "Sarah" as that is what is down in passenger ship records for her. Adolf and Sarah came from Galacia and arrived in New York in 1888 but settled in Boston where they had 3 children. In 1894 Sarah and the children left the USA to come to the UK. I cannot find anything about Adolf and Sarah before the passenger ship record which took them to the USA and nothing at all about what happened to Adolf. After Sarah and the children came to the UK, two of the children were put into an orphanage and Sarah and the other child seem to have disappeared off the face of the earth. There are no death records for them and its a real mystery. Has anyone got any ideas please.Lyn
