Post Posted: 6 Days ago at 10:58 am      Post subject: Antony Gagatek Born 1881 in Sanok
Reply with quote

I am trying to locate information on my great-grandfather Antony Gagatek. He was born in 1881--different locations have been given Woj. Podkarpackie, Sanok, Galicia and came to the US in 1898. He married Salomea Bornatowska from Sanok in 1902 and changed his last name to Gadek. No one in my family ever spoke of him so I know very little except that based on the little I know my dad and I have many of his traits. He died in 1940. Please any help would be very much appreciated!

Hi Debi,
Sanok, Podkarpackie, and Galicia are not conflicting places. Sanok is the town, Podkarpackie is a Woj. (kind of like a state), and Galicia was Austrian ruled during the time period your great grandfather was born, which included part of Poland. I see that Sanok is also a powiat (county), but it looks like it wasn't named a powiat until 1999. So I'm assuming, and please anyone correct me if I'm wrong, that when Antoni said he was from Sanok, he was referring to the town. Though sometimes immigrants did name the nearest big town instead of their village.

It looks like the Family History library has filmed some church records for Sanok

Unfortunately the dates are 1784 - 1875, so that wouldn't include Antoni's birth. I don't know if there are any birth records online for Sanok.

Debi,

in addition to Cheri's post, Geneteka does not show any Gagatek or Gadek indexed between 1879-1885. The closest match is a Gacek in 1884. It also shows some Burnatowska.
