Jurczyk was my great grand mothers name. My great Aunt told me this name & then got frustrated when I further inquired. I have found out over the years my great grandmother had children and a family in Poland, she left them and started a new family with my great grandfather (Moski, also from Poland) here in the United States. Any help would be much appreciated =)

My father father's was named Ludwig Jurczyk. I recently obtained records from Holocaust Survivors Museum. Would like to converse with others with the name Jurczyk in their family. Ludwig was born in Krosno, Poland in 1911.

Marya, and Anna Jurczyk are the names I know..
Marya (my great grandmother) & her younger sister Anna came to America in 1906 from Zaton at ages 16 & 9. They are on the Ellis Island passenger records. They departed from Hamburg. When they arrived in America they resided in the state of Massachusetts.

Until my great grandmother met my great grandfather Stanley Moski (1892 - 1969). Also Polish. He joined the army here and the story is "they" couldn't pronounce his last name so he changed it to Moski. Nobody knows what the original last name was. Or if it was even close to Moski...unfortunately.

There is another story that my great grandmother had a family in Poland that she left..came to America remarried & started another family. I'm not sure if this is true, my great grandmother was only 16 when she arrived in America..Its doubtful she had children and a husband at that age?

Merged: Looking for relatives of either the Zuk or Jurczyk families

Hi, I'm looking for possible relatives of my two maternal great-grandmothers. Both were born in Poland in the 1910s and both emigrated to Australia leaving relatives behind.

Their names were Antonina Zuk (b1918) (married Stefan Jedrzejewski) and Jozefa Jurczyck (b1910) (married Stanislaw Wreczycki)

Both have since sadly died.

I believe Antonina was born in the area Luck, which is now the Ukraine and Jozefa was born in the Czestochowa area.

Hope you guys can help!

I don't know if they are related to the Jurczyk family you are looking for.
