My sir name is Hermanowski and my grandfather and great grandfather died before I was born so I don't know much about my paternal history. What I do know from my grandfathers death certificate is this. My great grandfather was named Joseph of Jozef unknown date of birth and his son John of Jan was born about 1889 near Brodnica, Poland. Joseph had a wife Frances Czajkowski. Joseph and John arrived in the United States in the early 1890's I think 1892 Frances was not with them. We are all Catholics if that helps.

Thank you in advance.

My grandmother- Sophie's (Zofia) maiden name was Czajkowski. Her father was John--Jan, born 1855 in Poland. Her mother was Agnes Pisarek born 1858 in Poland. Agnes died in 1899 and John married Barbara but I don't know her maiden name. There was 10-11 siblings. I don't know when they married or came to the US but they settled in Shawano WI. They are buried there and that's how I know the birth years. I'm trying to find who John's parents were and any more ancestors I can find on my mother's side. I am only guessing John's parents. He did have a brother Franciszek b1853, but I'm not sure who their parents were. I've only come up with the name Franciszek Czajkowski and Franciszka Wichrowska. But I don't know for sure. For Agnes, I know her parents were Franciszek and Josephine Pisarek. I don't know Josephine's maiden name. I would also like to know any of their parents etc.

My mother's father was Jacob--Jakub? Wysocki --I have different info of where he was born. I have Aug 9 1891 in Russia, Poland and Luthuania. I only know he had a brother named Filip, a year or two older. They came to the US together, to Chicago, IL. I would like to find out who their parents, grandparents and siblings are. I was told Jacob was Polish. Some Census said he was Jewish.

If anyone can help me, please email me at: doggielover220@yahoo I have been searching for over 6 years to find my ancestors. I can't read Polish so it would have to be in English. Thank you for any help you can provide.
