Is there any connection between the Polish surname Leszczynski and the Lithuanian name
3 Dec 2006 #6
It's probably the same name with a Lithuanian ending.
OP Jola 7 | 71
3 Dec 2006 #7
Lithuanian ending - yes That "skis", but the først part of the name
is spelling a different way..
3 Dec 2006 #8
part of the name
is spelling a different way..

you are right, but it's sounds the same -anyways- when I am not sure I usually google it and that gives me some idea whether I am on the right track or not - good luck
3 Dec 2006 #9
There are many ways this last name is spelt we have a few in our family

Lezynski as well as english versions rendered , laginski, laszinski
OP Jola 7 | 71
4 Dec 2006 #10
you are right, but it's sounds the same
OK its LESJTJINSKI sound- the c in Lescinskis is also a tj sound. thanks.

yanta........ Lezynski must be Lesinski sound and not Lesjtjinski.

Some of them are from the Kaszuby area of Poland so im not sure how much the spelling is rendered in those regions compared to other areas of Poland.

One I found was this the names may not be accurate spelling because its from church records. There were no polish priests here when they arrived and I believe French priests wrote alot of it down..

Petrus LAZYNSKI b: in Kalisz, Lipusz, Poland

Anna LYNYINSKA (probably not correct spelling)

Valerie LEZYNSKI b: 1877 in Poland

Michael LOUZYNSKI b: in Lipusz, Poland (definitely a Latin who wrote this last name in the records "OU" is probably wrong.

yanta........ Lezynski must be Lesinski sound and not Lesjtjinski.

Thats correct! some have changed it to Lashinski here or Leshinski.
Does the name
OP Jola 7 | 71

Lezynski - Lazynski - the last surname have possible? a connection to Laszczynski - a very
seldom name.

Leszczynski = Leszcz = bream or Leszczyna = A Hazelbush...............

Leshinski - sounded more jewish.


It can also be:£ążyński...................!!!


£ężyn is a place in woj. Wielpolskie (Lezynski)

Not Jewish no , it is a polish surname but when they arrived to America they changed the spelling so people could pronounce better. This was very common here! some names I know of that have been rendered:

Jakubowski = yakabuski
luckaswicsz - luckasavitch
dombrowski- dombroskie
biernacki= bernatski

etc. It goes on which makes genealogy that much harder to trace.
OP Jola 7 | 71

ok. Yanta.
Leshinski is a polish surname, but like Leszczynski , also polish jews have these names
19 May 2007 #15

My 2 times great grandmother was Magdelena von Lesczynska (priest's spelling in Poland) daughter of Piotr von Lesczynski. They were from the Kaszuby area from Kniszyn, Lesno, Chojnice, Poland . The above is the way the priests spelled it then in America it became Lesczinski. Again, relying on spelling for the place names also.

Can't tell you about the Lithuanian connection. The records I have so far for Magdelena and her father, Piotr are for the 1700s and early 1800s in Poland.

The name Leszczyna means Hazeltree and can be spelled a lot of different ways

as in Polish ,Ukrainian , Russian , and the Slavic Languages.

Our name is Liszczyna as it was translated that way on arrival by my parents in 1948 to Canada.

If you find the people similar from the related parental description, check out all the reconds in Ellis Island documentation in USA that are availabe..Dutch and Mormans archives have excellent records and places where your family originated.

I had great success..

Exactly what kind of information is it you are looking for about your family?
And what have you tried to find, so far? Local archives? Polish relatives?
And how much do you know about your family, like with exact dates, place names and so on?

Goddag Jaszczolt.
Overraskende at du skriver på dansk!
Har først nu set dit svar.
Min familie kom til Ulkebøl/Sønderborg i 1920. Min far Stanislaus Leszczynski var født
den 28 marts 1919 et lille sted ved navn Re(m)bielice. Sikkert hos noget familie:
(Rymarczyk - Balcerzak - Leszczynski) . Min far døde i 1957 ved et trafikuheld....
Min farfar hed Roch Leszczynski og var født 9-8 1884 i Dankow (Slask i dag)
Rochs forældre: Franciszek Leszczynski gift med Dominika Rymarczyk, Dankow
Katarzyna Balcerzak født 3-2 1884 i Dankow.
Katarzynas forældre: Tomasz Balcerzak gift med Franciszka Leszczynska, Dankow eller
Jeg har fået bekræftet via kontakt med Klobucki, at min far var født i R. som lå mellem
Rebielice Sz. og Rebielice Krol. ( i nærheden af et lille sted: Troniny.) i Dankow området.
Jeg er interresseret i at vide om, at jeg har nogle slægtninge i Dankow området.....

Now I'have get a adres to a parisk-office - who can help me about my relatives.

My last name is Lesczinski is this connected to Leszczynski in any way? and has anyone traced the king Stanisław Leszczyński bloodline to modern times?
OP Jola 7 | 71

Liszczyna 17 of this surname in Poland - 7o Liszczynski

My last name is Lesczinski . Mabye originally spelled Lesczyński........

The bloodline of Stanisław Leszczyński directly stopped with him selv.He had two daughters........ Leszczyński (hazel) is not a common name as Nowak and Wiesniewski.

and Wójcik but there are about Leszczyńscy in Poland

Maria Lesczińska ( Leszczyńska ) Queen of France....

Also spelled on french:Lasczińska - so lLescziński must be originally Leszczyński!

Thread attached on merging:
Natolin/Deutschschain. Names Leszczyńska and Hanke (Balcerzak).

My grandmother, Katarzyna Leszczyńska sister Maryanna Hanke (Balcerzak) born 1894
in Rębielice. Married 1914 in Poland with Karol Hanke born 1886 in Natolin/Kielce Wojw.

Karol and Maryanna Hanke immigrated 1919 to Ulkebol/Sonderburg/Germany. In 1920
Ulkebol/Sonderborg were a part of Denmark (again)

Do somebody know something about the little town Natolin in the area of Danków and
Rębielice? Hanke is a german family name. Was Natolin in the past founded by german
people in Poland?

Does anyone know the family lineage of Stanisław Leszczyński up to current times

please post if you know any current ancestors of Stanisław Leszczyński.

King Stanisław Leszczyński had only one daughter. This I may conclude from his own saying: "there do not exist two more boring queens in the world than my wife and my daughter" ("nie ma na świecie dwóch nudniejszych królowych niż moja żona i córka!"). I haven't heard of any (legal) sons he may have had. So, his only descendants would be the offspring of king Louis XV of France and Maria Leszczyńska.
