T Bak

There are over 30,000 people in Poland sharing the Bąk surname (pronounced bunk or bonk), so with only that inforamtion it's a needle in a haystack situation. Do you at least know what the T stands for: Tomasz, Tadeusz, Teofil, Teodor, Tytus, Tymoteusz or what?

her name is Idalia from (

One thing: only 449 women in Poland are called Idalia so that'll make it easier to track down than if her name was Maria (some 890,000) or Katarzyna (570,000). And it's Zielona Góra (Green Mountain).

If such person is using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or some online dating sites, then you may try the NameTag ( - available for Android, iOS and in Google Glass as an application.

Shame that it is so popular surname in Poland - in fact the most popular I beleive..
Now the option is to find a phone number to that person if available - maybe somebody has an access to the phone book from this area or even lives in the neighborhood...

Merged: looking for KRYGIER family contacts

my great grandfather Barthlomiej(z?) Krygier, born 1858 . I have no clue as where to find any information in Poland. I would appreciate any help if someone has the same surname they might have him in the family tree. I seem to be at a road block he came to USA around 1885.

I'm Looking for a Blond lady named Agnieska (not sure of spelling). She was a worker\exchange student in 2001 and worked at the Goodwill Store in Roswell Georgia USA at that time. She was living I think temporarily in US on a Visa and the last time I talked with her she was staying in Roswell GA. I have a lovely Easter Card that she sent me from Poland in 2001 but since it's just a post card there's no return address. She taught me some Russian and I want to thank her for her friendliness during the time I knew her before I moved away from the Roswell area. I was doing some cleaning in my home and ran across this lovely postcard and thought of her. I just want to know how she's doing. I can be reached at

tempska yadwiga

Jadwiga Dębska?

gotleib bogusi yadwiga

Boguś (Bogdan) Gottleib?

Jadwiga is a lady's first name. Dębski is a common surname (Dębska is the female version - in Polish the last letter changes).
26 Oct 2015  #404
Oh I don't know - I have just found a family tree and the names I have written are those on the family tree. - I've tried searching but can find nothing on or anything but as I speak no polish I'm struggling so much - gottleib would be at least 70 now and born during the war years so I imagine records are not that easy to trace.

Were they handwritten maybe, or written by someone who didn't write well in Polish? The names are fairly obvious.

Do you know where the people came from? Unfortunately Dębski is a very common name (like Oakley, Oaksey, Oakworth in English) but Gottleib is much rarer in Poland.
26 Oct 2015  #406
Hand written and nobody alive to ask/confirm details .... but the lady appears to have given birth to her son somewhere close to the malbork pow camp.

If there's a connection to the camp, there may be records connected to that. If they came to the UK, perhaps the Federation of Poles in Great Britain could point you to whatever organisation (there are many in the UK) may have a record of arrival/immigration.

I believe they stayed in Poland but will try the fed of poles as you suggest thank you so much

A pleasure. Finding people actually in Poland is very hard sometimes. The surname Gottleib (assuming it was never changed - this did happen with some German names) is rare, so a look on Facebook etc (even if he doesn't have a page, there may be a family member who does) could bear fruit.

There are people-tracing services in Poland, but I've never used one so don't know how much they cost or what information they need.

The surname Gottleib

I believe that wasn't a surname, but the given name "Gottlieb". So her ancestor's name was Gottlieb Bogdan <family name>.
26 Oct 2015  #411
To be honest it was a bit if a shock but my grandfather had a child whilst a pow and those were the names so presuming they were not married I would imagine the "surname" was same as hers his full name was written as gottleib bogusi yadwiga (tunney if he took my gf surname) but all searches I'm drawing a blank !

How about this one?
jon357 64 | 14,382

Bogusi seems an odd one. There's Boguś, short for Bogdan and there's Boguslaw (both first names). Also a couple of rarer variants. Gottlieb as a first name doesn't sound quite right either. If his surname's Dębski (the male surname equivalent of Dębska) then it isn't so easy, being a common name. Having your grandfather's name is far less likely (though anything's possible, just about). Jadwiga isn't a surname.

Maybe in the morning someone will see it and have another suggestion for Bogusi.

Gottlieb as a first name doesn't sound quite right either.

Gottlieb is a common, old fashioned German given name for a male.

Exactly. Though far rarer in Poland. More common in PL as a surname, in fact.

Given that it was during the war and in that particular region, it's hard to imagine there isn't a German connection if it is his first name, though the gentleman's mother's name does not suggest that.
26 Oct 2015  #416
Oh thank you so much - I literally have nothing other than what I saw on the family tree and like I said all those who would know are dead or have dementia !! I will look at that link though 😊😊😊

Roma Rudecka, born 1909 in Warsaw died 1966 in Sopot. Looking for anyone who knew her. She worked out of Warsaw, Bydgoszcz and £ódź. She is buried in Cmentarz Powązkowski, and was married to (and later divorced from) Jerzy Rychter who served in A.K. and died in 1970 and who is buried in Cmentarz Rakowicki in Kraków.
