Post subject: Surname search Pajcz or Piach and Funtowicz
My Great Grandmother's maiden name is Funtowicz. Her full name is Antionelle Funtowicz. She is from the ton of Pyzdry. My Grandfather was born in 1881. His name was Frank Pajcz or Piach. I am wondering about the origin of the surnames. I would also like to know if they were Catholic or Jewish surnames. We heard that my Great Grandmother was possibly Jewish. Thank you in advance.
Very fortunately you have them in Posen Project [index of local marriages 1800 - 1899], here is translation into English
Catholic Parish Pyzdry [Peisern], record 19 / year 1878
Teofil Pajtz (23 years old)
Parents: Karol Pajtz and Zuzanna Pajtz nee family Koralewski
Antonina Fątowicz alias Funtowicz (22 years old)
Parents: Piotr Fątowicz alias Funtowicz, and Katarzyna Fątowicz alias Funtowicz nee family Suchorski
Small confirmation from the present-day Poland [census/records abt 2000], in this very old Polish/Germany town Pyzdry are still living Polish families surnamed Koralewski and Suchorski:
Maria Suchorska [=family Suchorski]
Pajtz and Fątowicz/Funtowicz supposingly left Pyzdry in all the 20th century to other Polish towns, and of course to the U.S.
Rich family roots, good luck in your further search!
