Reply with quote

Hello,

This is my first post on the board.

My grandfather came to the United States in the late 19th century. He passed away when I was very young and I cannot remember him. My father told me he came from Austria.

My younger sister was able to find a draft registration card from around 1917, where he lists his country of origin as Odrehowa, Galicia, Austria. From what research I have done, Galicia today is southern Poland, but I cannot find the village on any map. The only thing that comes close is Odrzechowa.

I am attaching my grandfather's draft registration card, and hope someone might be able to tell me where he came from.

Thanks for any information or assistance,

Kurt

Hi Kurt,

Odrzechowa comes closer to Odrehowa than it may first appear. The entry for Odrzechowa in the 19th Century Słownik geograficzny… also shows the spelling Odrechowa.
Here is a link to the entry: http://dir.icm.edu.pl/pl/Slownik_geograficzny/Tom_VII/393
Since ch is one of the double consonants not pronounced separately in Polish and since h and ch were pronounced alike it is understandable that your grandfather would have written the place as Odrehowa. I believe that you have correctly identified the location as Odrzechowa.

Wishing you successful research,

Dave

Dave,

Thank you so much for the confirmation. I will have to find out how to contact someone over there to see what information they may have on my grandfather.

Hi Kurt,
The last name (Wolko) and place of living (Odrzechowa) of your ancestors indicates that they may have been of Łemko origin and greekcatholic denomination. One of the etnographic groups (highlanders) which has inhabited the Carpathian Mountains. Its realy interesting. There are many historical sources refering to the village of Odrzechowa. Historical sources which are geneologicaly usefull go back till 1549.
The last name of your father derives from – a wolf. The letter of „l” in the last name was originaly „ł”, we prenounce it like English „w”.

Here you may find the information on your father and family estates and house:

Good luck
