Hello there, I am interested in tracing any of my Polish-Lithuanian relatives. My name is Martin Sadowski son of Feliks Sadowski born in Wilno in 1919. My grandfather was Bronislaw Sadowski born in middle Poland about 1857. He served in the Imperial Russian Guards as a Leutenant - although I was always told he was a Colonel - afterwards he was Mayor of Wilno.

I have alot of information on my father and some on his brothers and sisters too much to list here but as always there is always more to know. My fathers most distinguishing feature was his shortened and scarred left arm where he was shot by a Russian at the age of two.

Please feel free to contact me as I have found that even when I have replied to people with the same name I do not even get a hello.

I cannot read or write Polska

Some places such as google can do rough translations of web pages. They're not great, but might be better than nothing.

Thanks for that, any idea where she is from? I know my father had 4 brothers and 3 sisters and I believe all the brothers died in the war but not before having children so I must have a fairly large family out there.

The main areas are Lodz, Czestochowa and Warsaw also Wilno in Lithuania and possibly Belarus.

imię - name
nazwisko - last name
e-mail - you know
hasło - password
powtórz hasło - repeat password
data urodzin - birth date
konto fikcyjne - fake account yes/no I suggest mark no
and rewrite letters from picture
and tick two empty boxes no worrys they're not charge you any money this is free social webpage and click dalej - next

and thats all you are registered probably if I remember they'll send you some link at your email to confirm registration
on main page choose znajomi - frends and szukaj znajomych - find friends

when you'll be there
there is easy form to fill
› Imię, nazwisko lub pseudonim: - Name, last name or nick name
› Miejscowość: - location for example Kraków
› Płeć: - gender

Hello ,

My Grandmother's parents (on my father's side) were Bronislaw and Mary Sadowski. They had 2 children, Estelle and Genevieve Sadowski. Estelle Sadowski was my Grandmother. I know they immigrated from Poland, although the details I do not yet know. I am wondering if there is any relation?

I will find out more information from my father as to where they immigrated from (I know it was somewhere in Poland) and when they arrived in the US.

HI, My name is Lech Sadowski, son of Feliks Sadowski (born in 1941). My father was born in Stara Wilejka and lived in Wilno for a couple of years, before relocating to Elk, Poland after the war. My grandfather Stanislaw Sadowski lived in Wilno as well. It is interesting that your father and grandfather lived in wilno at the same time, maybe we are somehow related....

my email is, email me if you want more details.

The earliest ancestor I have of this family is: Franz Sadowski- born about 1787 and died in Plocice 1865...

Dear fadows0773, going just by the surname is not a good idea. It's a very common name in Poland, over 17 thousand -- and that's just the males, the females (surname Sadowska) would double that number. You can see for yourself by googling the word moikrewni

and then choosing in the first result the option "Mapa nazwisk" (=map of surnames). Sorry I can't post the link (spam protection).

Better start the traditional way: dad's birth certificate if available, then granddad's birth certificate, etc. When you have the birthplace, you can try to find relevant parish records. It's hard bordering on uphill struggle, but still more promising that sifting through 35 or so thousands Sadowskis in Poland, to say nothing of those maybe in Lithuania.

BTW, your surname means roughly 'of the orchard' (Polish 'sad' = Eng. 'orchard'). You'll probably have learnt that by now, anyway.

afterwards he was Mayor of Wilno.

No Bronisław Sadowski was ever a Mayor of Wilno, game over.

SADOWSKI: nickname-tutrned-surname of toponymic origin traceable to any of multiple localities in Poland and throughout the former Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth such as Sady, Sadowa, Sadów or Sadowo. Root-word is sad (orchard), so those places are translatable as Orchards, Orchardville, Orchardton, etc.

Someone here in Fla is selling Polish wwII medals. Belongs to Colonel Stanislaw Sadowski and Sergeant Abrachamowicz.
