While Krupa is undoubtedly a name of Polish or other Slavonic origin, Matti looks to be Hungarian. Naturally its bearrers may have lived in southern Poland for centuries, been thoroughly Polonized and not even aware of their distant Magyar roots.

Sounds more like a manor house.

My grandfathers last name is Krupa

Any relations to the legendary jazz drummer Gene Krupa (born in Chicago around 1909)?

There are more than 23,000 Krupas in Poland, making it a very popular surname. The likelihood of being related to some namesake is like finding relatives among Whites, Summers, Harrisons, Bakers and Wilsons in the English-speaking world.

He was a 2nd cousin. he was the nefew of my grandfather who emigrated to the US around 1895. My parrents tried to meet him in 1950, but her was too wealthy to have anything to do with his cousins.

How about a manor house? Have you hear of any associated to the Name Matti?

There are six people in Poland surnamed Matti and eight who sign themselves Maty. None live in the Kraków area.

There were Krupa's in East Chicago, Indiana. The local American Legion Hall, Post 369, is named after John Krupa. If I'm not mistaken John Krupa was big in local politics in the 1950's until his death in the late 1970's or early 1980's. Years ago, right around the corner from me, was a tavern owned by a Henry Krupa. Henry has since passed on. I had a friend named Sandy Krupa, who was related to Gene Krupa. Sandy passed away several years ago at a relatively young age. I'm sure she still has relatives. I also recall that one of my relatives with the last name of Teles, had a sister who married a Krupa. She may have married the aforementioned John Krupa. I'm not sure.

Hello. In my search for Sandy Krupa, I found this site and your entry on her passing. I am both shocked and saddened by this news. I was very close to Sandy in the early 80's and she has always been in my heart ever since. Over the years I have wondered where she was and what she was doing w/ her can only imagine just how this news has taken me by surprise. I don't know if this will reach you, I don't see any other way of contacting you through a direct email in order to find more info out regarding Sandy. If you happen to get this, please email me at eden99dv [/] I would greatly appreciate any added info you can give me. Sincerely, and greatly saddened, Dana Visak

Does ANYONE know what happened to Sandy Krupa. Born in 1957, lived in East Chicago, IN, father John Krupa also of East Chicago. I cannot find any info on her other than the day of her death, Feb. 20, 2000. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help in finding out some answers. Thanks so much!

Hello. Thanks for the suggestion, but I did all of that. Spent hrs. searching the internet in so many dif. ways. The only thing that pops up is her name, date of birth and date of death. The only other way to obtain any further info, would be to pay a fee (you know how these websites are always trying to get $ out of you, I opted not to do that). BUT, I did get a response from the person who actually posted the original message that mentioned Sandy's passing. He was able to share a bit more info. I'm also planning on going to the Library to see if I could find any additional info or obit. by searching newspaper archives for that year. Thanks so much for your efforts to help me though, it is greatly appreciated!

I was a good friend of Sandy Krupa's in the 80's, if this was the same woman who was a drummer and related to Gene Krupa. We had an all female band, and I was the guitar player. If it is the same Sandy, I always wondered what became of her. Can you give me more info? It is heart breaking to think she is gone.thanks

Hi, im not sure if anyone will read this but im a Krupa. My grandfather was Stanislaw Krupa and originated from Kracow. He escaped a NAZI POW camp during the War and fled to England where he joined with the English Armed Forces as an engineer. He married Mavis Urry (not sure when) in england and had 3 kids (One of whom is my father). They migrated to Australia in the 60's sometime.

My brother went to Kracow last year hoping to find information about my grandfather but he was told all records were destroyed about him (he was declared a traitor for fighting with the english) and that the best chance we had of finding any information was in England, the Red Cross or forums such as these.

If you are intestested in contacting me you can email me at: Twister_25_77 [/] hotmail
