Post Posted: Tue Jul 12, 2022 2:34 am      Post subject: Help finding birth record in what is possibly Lacko, Poland
Reply with quote

Hi, I'm trying to find information on my great-grandfather, Michal Jasiorkowski, who immigrated to the US in the early 1900s but was born in Poland.

I have his naturalization papers, as I've attached here. It lists his birthday as 10 September, 1875 in Lacko Austria Hungary. His marriage certificate from the US in 1906 says he was 31 (which would match the 1875 birth year) and just says he was born in Galicia, Austria. It also lists his father as Michael, but does not list a mother's name.

(I can't seem to find an immigration record for him, or at least one I can verify is him, even though the naturalization papers gives a date of immigration.)

I've tried searching https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl for a birth record to no avail. If anyone can help me locate a birth record, given this date, or help me locate where I can search for records in this town of Lacko that I can manually browse, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Hi, the surname you are looking for (Jasiurkowski) appears in parish Łącko, Lesser Poland Voivodeship.
Here https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/plany.php you can find that birth records for Łącko are still indexed (and they are not available online), so I think you have to wait till they will appear in Geneteka. Although there is one Michał Jasiurkowski born in 1848 - maybe the father of your great-grandfather https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/index.php?op=gt&lang=pol&bdm=B&w=06mp&rid=11248&search_lastname=jasiurkowski&search_name=&search_lastname2=&search_name2=&from_date=&to_date=

You can also try this:

Hi,
I know you are looking for Lacko records, but I wasn't sure if you knew that Michal had two siblings who also came to the USA. Jozef and Jakub. Here they are in the 1910 census living with Michal. Also, Sophia's brother is living with them.

Maybe their records could help you find clues.

Hi Trish, thanks for the Census. I was aware of this census and believe to have found an immigration record for Michal’s brother Jozef, as well as a WWI Draft Registration, and both appear to say he is also from Lacko. That’s the only info I’ve been able to find for him and haven’t found anything on Jakob.

As far as Sophie Zwonlinska is concerned, I believe I may have found where she is from. The marriage certificate I have says her father is John and mother is Tekla (looks like last name is spelled Berzoak, but obviously this isn’t a correct Polish spelling).

On FamilySearch, I have found a record (no image, unfortunately) of a Sophia Zwonlinka born in Maszkowice, Maszkowice, Kraków, Poland in 1879 to a Joannes Zwolinski and Thecliz Baziak (close enough to the spelling in the marriage certificate). The birth info seen here:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XPBZ-KJT

I found a few other siblings, but no John as listed in the 1910 Census.

I also found a probable immigration record for Sophie, as it says she is from Maszkowice and coming to see her cousin Jan Baziak in New Haven. https://www.ancestry.com/imageviewer/collections/7488/images/NYT715_15-0826?treeid=&personid=&hintid=&queryId=66971b6e72cd2bb251085b773bed7bca&usePUB=true&_phsrc=EBJ514&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true&_gl=1*q7bh9r*_ga*ODQwODQ5MzMuMTY0MjA1NzQwNw..*_ga_4QT8FMEX30*MTY1NzU4MTQ2Mi43MS4xLjE2NTc1ODUxMzQuMA..&pId=4004954837

Since there are no images of any of the birth records, however, I haven’t been able to trace anything back further than this.

Hi,
I have found Michal's family tree on FamilySearch and some info about his broher Martin born in 1882. I found Martin's neutralization documents https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSMW-Y9ZC-L?i=696&cat=1409121 where he declared that he was born in Zarzycze, 25 Dec 1882. I found that there is a village Zarzecze only 3 kilometers form Łącko.

Since I didn't find many records for Jasiurkowski family in parish Łącko, I've checked if there are some records for Zarzecze and I found this https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/686169?availability=Family%20History%20Library

There is a birth record for Martin https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XPBN-429 and his siblings, including Jakub https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XPBF-BGC or Jan https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X5WY-SMG. And there is a birth record for Michał born 29 Sept 1875 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XPBF-89W Although the surname is very often misspelled, you can see that for example here https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X5W5-R8J the father is Jan Jasiurkowski and the mother is Katarzyna Jawor/Jaworska (there are many records for this couple).

Could it be the family you are looking for? The only thing that doesn't match here is that in Michael's naturalization document his father's name is Michal.
