Reply with quote

Hello, I have recently located the names of a pair of g-g-grandparents. They come from what I believe to be Szembruk [ˈʂɛmbruk] (German: Groß Schönbrück) a village in the administrative district of Gmina Rogóźno, within Grudziądz County, Kuyavian- Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-central Poland Germany. Their names are Bernard and Eva Svantkowski (as spelled on ship manifest) They were both born in 1863. Arrived in the US in 1887. An obituary lists her maiden name as Shane but that does not sound German or Polish to me. I would like to know where I can find a record of their marriage. The actual file may be at the Family Research Center in Utah and not online but I have no way to get to Utah!
Thank you,
Linda Raymond

Hi Linda,

The records are online at Family Search. I believe the attached (Record #7 on the page) is their marriage. His surname is Swiąkowski and her maiden name looks like Sohen.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you success,

Dave

I'm reading Bernhard Swiatkowski and Eva Schön [German ö = oe], was probably Americanized to "Shane" [that's how Americans pronounce Schön].

I have a follow up to this information you so kindly found for me. This marriage is in 1884 but immigration records show Eva had a daughter in 1882. My thinking is that perhaps this is a second marriage. Can you tell me what collection exactly this marriage was found at Family Tree so that I can look if there was a previous marriage for Eva circa 1881? Thank you
