Looking for information, and history about my last name "Dajczak"



Dajczak

Hey everyone, I've searched countless amounts of genealogy sites. My grandparents moved to Canada shortly after the second World War yet I can't find anywhere any information about my family back in Poland.

This might help - hopefully? It's all in Polish I'm afraid, but the link is to a site grouping the Dajczak families from the area of Olejów, Podole. You can click on the family trees to enlarge them. Maybe some names will ring a bell?

Are your grandparents still alive? Are they willing or not not to talk about where they grew up in Poland before emmigrating to Canada? My grandparents never talked about where they grew up in Poland or even that there was family still living there. I had to use clues to learn where they were born and what part of Poland these towns are in. So for example, did your grandparents ever write to anyone in Poland? The address might give a clue as to where to start. If the writer or the family are still alive as well, they may be able give you help. So, start by checking with the family first by asking for letters and documents.
