I've been trying to build a family tree of my family. Our last name is Pyszka. My grandfather came from Poland in the 1930's. I can't find any information. Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.

Is Pyszka a common name? Also, does it have a meaning?

Thanks!

I visited my family near the Vistula River near Parsanow. My maiden name is Pyszka. I was able to visit where my grandfather grew up prior to him leaving Poland to escape the war. He did leave behind many brothers and sisters but he did have one brother already in Niagra Falls, NY. He ended up in South Attleboro, MA. My grandfather, Martin Pyszka, came over before 1930, since my dad was born in the US in 1924.

Pyszka is based on pyszny "proud, hauty"

Most of the 974 Pyszkas are located in the northwestern portion of Poland.

PYSZKA: diminutive of pycha (pride, haughtiness) can mean vanity or conceit; another meaning in some areas is bruised barley otherwise known as pęczak, pęcak or pęsak.

KOSTOWICZ: patronymic nick from Kostek (short for Konstanty) = Connie's kid.

BRZEZIŃSKI: topo nick bfrom Brzezina (Birchville)

WADZIŃSKI: possibly from wadzić się (to pick fights, start trouble)

JAWORSKI: from jawor (sycamore) or locality incorproating that root such as Jaworów

KAMIŃSKI: variant of Kamieński - topo nick from Kamień or Kamieniec (Rockville).

My name is Lawrence Parker. I was born Lawrence Pysza. My family came from Peru-Lasalle Illinois, Grandfather John Alton Pyszka, Father born Leon William Pyszka. I noticed that there was a Larry Pyszka from LaSalle. We are probably related.

Hello all. My grandfather was Aloysius Pyszka he lived in Lasalle Peru most of his life. He married Dorothy Miller and they had three children Betty, Shirley and Ellen all still living. They attended LaSalle-Peru HS. Al's father was Joseph and his mother was Angelina Odwrot. JAMCER has already posted this. I was able to trace most of the family paternal side history back into the 17th century but lost it. They lived on 5th street in LaSalle for many years.

Al was a fun loving guy and pretty wild in his youth. He passed away in 1994. Best grandfather a boy could ever have.

I'm looking for my family in Poland. I live in USA. My father Zygmunt I Pyszka was born 9/23/1924 he had 5 children . He was in the WWII, got shot and then came to the USA. He died in 1993 at the age of 68 in Milwaukee,Wi. I remember seeing a picture of his family which seemed large.

SIGMOND CAME HERE IN THE 1940'S DURING WWII, SHOT IN BATTLE WHILE SERVING THE POLISH ARMY

Zygmunt I Pyszka was born 9/23/1924 he had 5 children . He was in the WWII, got shot and then came to the USA

Is it a coincidence?? Sigmond = Zygmunt in polish.
