Reply with quote

Hello,

In need of help finding a couple Polish lines on my maternal side. I've hit a road block and cannot seem to find much on them.

My grandfather Francis Louis O'Connor (1910 - 1985) married Marian Alice Kszanak (1909 - 1981) in Buffalo, NY.

Marian's father was Thomas Krzanak (1882 - 1945) and her mother was Josephine Kukula (1884 - 1922). Thomas was born in Poland, but I'm not sure where. Josephine was Austria or Poland. If my research was right, Thomas has two brothers, Piotr and Joseph Krzanak.

I've seen many variations of Krzanak/Kszanak and Kukula.

Any help would be greatly appreciated Smile

Thanks,

Matt

Hello Matt,
In the 1910 census there is Tomasz and Józefa Krzanak with son John and daughter Mary (and a boarder John Kukula). The address is Buffalo Ward 8. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RJD-9ZV?i=38&cc=1727033
There is also Piotr Krzanak (born ab. 1880) with his wife Anna and brother Józef Krzanak (born ab. 1888), also at Buffalo Ward 8. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GRJD-9V4?i=10&cc=1727033

I have found ship manifest for Józef Krzanak from Gierałtowice, going to his brother Piotr. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JFFX-S3Y
There is also ship manifest for Piotr https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JJMS-YP1 but i couldn't find any for Tomasz.

Gierałtowice is a village in Lesser Poland Voivodeship. In Geneteka you can find some records for surname Krzanak in Gierałtowice parish
https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/index.php?op=gt&lang=pol&bdm=B&w=06mp&rid=10044&search_lastname=krzanak&search_name=&search_lastname2=&search_name2=&from_date=&to_date=&exac=1&rpp1=0&ordertable=[[0,%22asc%22],[1,%22asc%22],[2,%22asc%22]]&searchtable=&rpp2=50

Do you have Tomasz & Józefa marriage certificate?

Hi Monika,

Thank you for the links. I do not have the Marriage Certificate for Tomasz and Jozefa. The only hard evidence I have is the death certificate of Marian Kszanak (married name O'Connor that lists her parents as Thomas Krzanak and Josephine Kukula).

Hi Matt,
Based on the age given in the 1910 census, Tomasz was born approx. 1885. This matches Genetyka's index. Tomasz was born on 15.10.1885 in Gierałtowice. His parents were Piotr Krzanak and Marianna Sekuła. Tomasz had at least 8 siblings, but most of them died as children.
Look at this:

Yes, it should be him https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JFFX-9J3 The same ship and date as in Jozef's passenger list. They were both going to Piotr Krzanak in Buffalo.

The marriage certificate for Thomas & Josephine would be very helpful for your further research. They probably got married in Buffalo between 1906 and 1909.
