Reply with quote

from http://nazwisko.blogspot.com (w okolicach Kielc znajduje się miejscowość Samsonów-Dudków, która mieć może coś wspólnego z tym nazwiskiem.
Otóż pisownia przez -t- wynika z fonetyki, która głoskę tę, położoną przed bezdźwięcznym -k-, ubezdźwięcznia. Warto zauważyć, że są też warianty Dutka, Dutkiewicz (z tym samym ubezdźwięcznieniem), ale nie ma nazwiska Dutek.
Co do miejscowości w Kieleckiem: Dudków należał zapewne do kogoś o przydomku Dudek, a później od tej nazwy mogło powstać nazwisko Dudkowski/Dutkowski. Dutkowskich jest nieco więcej, bo 2230 osoby.

in the vicinity of Kielce (Poland) is the village of Samsonów-Dudków, which may have something to do with this name.

Well, the spelling by -t- results from phonetics, which sounds this voice before the voiceless -k-, ubsze-yours. It is worth noting that there are also variants of Dutka, Dutkiewicz (with the same wording), but there is no name of Dutek.
As for the village in Kielce: Dudków probably belonged to someone named Dudek (see also: name of a bird), and later the name Dudkowski / Dutkowski could be derived from that name.
The Dutkowski (-ch) are a bit more - 2230 persons.
So Dutko is an English simplification of the name Dudek (polish bird) (who: Dudka) or dłuto (chisel) (what: Dłutka, Dłutko)

I am looking for information on my Grandfather Walter Wilinski. I know that he was from Wloclawek and born in 1889.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

I have checked 1889 Włocławek romancatholic and evangelic parish church records and there was no Wiliński Walter there. Are You sure it was 1889?

Hi VWRANK,

Polish immigrants who used the name Walter in the USA almost always had the given name Władysław. The English version of Władysław is Ladislaus but many immigrants decided to call themselves Walter, which fit better into the English speaking world. Also, birth years can be off. Finally, when a man said he was from Włocławek he could have meant he was from the town or he may have meant that he was from the powiat (like our county) of Włocławek, which more often than not was what he meant. It was sort of like someone saying that he is from NY— it could be either the city or the state.

There is a Władysław Wilinski indexed as being born in Chodecz (which was in the powiat of Włocławek) in 1888. Here is a link to Geneteka, which has an index of individuals born in Kujawsko-Pomorskie, where the town and the powiat of Włocławek are located: http://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/index.php?op=gt&lang=pol&bdm=B&w=02kp&rid=B&search_lastname=wilinski&search_name=wladyslaw&search_lastname2=&search_name2=&from_date=&to_date=

Attached is a map of the powiat of Włocławek from 1907.

To do fruitful research in Poland it would be necessary to have additional info from this side of the pond.

Wishing you success,

Dave

Reply with quote

Balczuk, birchess or bulchie are names that I found on one side
Bernosky is another
Samulanis
And Pukiewicz
I’m looking for any of these names or original spellings, and town origins. I’ve been able to trace back until they came to America which was early 1900’s they all apparently came from Poland or Lithuania, I’m stumped and I think the spelling has changed from typos from when they arrived. any info is helpful at all Thankyou.
