This is probably a scam, when you called back, it would have cost you a packet.

Help! Trying to trace my daughter's family tree on her dad's side...Polish ancestry..

We know the original spelling of the last name was Wojczik or along that lines. We have a date of birth for her great-great grandfather as 1887 in Poland. We know he immigrated with his Slovakian wife before 1906 as her great-uncle was born that year here in WV. How would one go about trying to find more info. I'm coming to dead ends everywhere I go as I do not have more than his birth year and country of birth. Also was told, and I don't know if this is fact, that the Pope changed his last name. I always figured it was done at Immigration when they disembarked. But that's the story...any one have any idea how i can get any further with this??

If you know the name of the club then try its fb or instagram page

There might be a Ukrainians in Krakow fb group - sonewhere where people arrange transport, accommodation and work. You could leave a message there.

If it was a strip club then she probably used an alias.

If a normal club then if you are that desperate why not just get another Ryanair flight and find her.

Always ask for a number if you like someone!

No I searched on the internet but I cant find the club.
Thats a good suggestion I might try that.

Yea im not that desperate yet to book another flight XD

Because of the atmosphere and proably the alchol too I forgot to ask :(

I was thinking if somebody here lives in Krakow and they dont have much to do and want to help they can go have a look there.

Chrapczynski looking for real identity

My great grandfather's name is John Chrapczynski born around 1871 in Poland or Galicia or Czechoslovakia or Austria. He immigrated to the United States around the year 1900 or so and settled in western Pennsylvania. He married a woman named Anna Kosiba. Here is the riddle. His real identity was not John Chrapczynski. He worked for a man named Chrapczynski who was set to travel to the US and he became to ill to travel. So my great grandfather purchased his travel papers and assumed his identity. His real family surname may be something like Gowich or Glowicz. Anyone hear a story like this?

Apparently this story is even more complicated than finding Anna Kosiba's birth record.
To start with, are you sure it's true and not just family lore? If it's true, it was just him and probably his family who knew his real identity. Is there anyone old enough to remember him who might know his real first and last names? The surname in Polish was probably Głowicz. But that's just a guess. What was his first name? Also if he assumed another identity, you're not sure about his date and place of birth, I believe, as the ones you have are probably Chrapczynski's.

As I wrote before, start with checking the American documents: the census, ship manifests, death or marriage certificates - anything that may help you find where to look for documents in Poland.

As for the country of origin, the surnames sound Polish so most probably he was Polish. That doesn't mean he had no Austrian, Czech or Slovakian ancestors, of course. As for the political situation in Europe, Poland was partitioned and there was no Czechoslovakia. Roughly speaking, what was later known as Czechoslovakia was part of Austria-Hungary around 1900.

Check geneteka for the surnames you're looking for. Some parishes are indexed there. It's done by volunteers and it's a tough and time consuming job.
