I noticed this name and I am searching for my grandfathers family. But on his papers his name was spelled Driezic. People on this site said there was no spelling like that and they spelled it your way. My grandfathers name was Stefan, and he had 1 brother and 2 stepsisters. Could it be possible we could be related in some way?

One of these days when I have the time im going to really research my family tree. I was watching a show on tv about Polish immigration to the U.S.A, it was very interesting. Most Polish immigrants came over well before WWI. In the late 1800's(around 1875).

DZIEDZIC: heir, squire; probably topo nick from Dziedzice

BADURA: from badurzyć (to tell tall tales, speak rubbish) hence yarn-spinner

I am researching my mothers family. Surname Dziedzic immigrated from Poland in 1910. I am looking for information as to what part of Poland they came from, and any other info on their parents, etc...Does anyone know how to find this? Other than because they have nothing.

Poland didn't exist in 1910, so your ancestors came either from the German Empire, Russia or Austria-Hungary. You might want to take a look at the Ellis Island web site at, where you can check the ship manifests of the vessels that brought immigrants to New York.

I was born in 1968 in Warsaw, Poland. I was at the age of three adopted, and have been living in Sweden since then. I went to Poland in 1996 and was able trace my birth mother. At that time it did not feel relevant in finding my birth father.

His name is Jan Dziedzic ( this according to the Distric Court in Warsaw-Praga )and was born on May 11th 1937. In 1971 he was living in Piaseczno, ul Pulawska 9.

If anyone can help me in how to proceed in locating him I would be most grateful.
Thank you!

My surname is Dzidic. I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dziedzic and Dzidic are very similiar surnames, and I'm trying to investigate more about it.
31 Oct 2016 #27
I am Croat from Bosnia and Herzegovina and my surname is Džidić. I am here because of reading a book in which is american author Michael Dziedzic mentioned a few times. He is kind of military officer. There is interesting connection between Dzidic and Dziedzic surnames.

Does Dzidić mean anything in Croatian?
31 Oct 2016 #29
There is no actual meaning. My nickname is Džida and it's common nickname of all people with Dzidic surname. ''Džida'' is something like long spear or stick with flag on it.

I am looking for the same information- my great grandmother came over around 1910, same last name, from Breslau. Her name was Angeline. Did you have any success? Maybe we could compare notes.
