searching for ancestors Wenerowicz

3 Jan 2006 #1
Looking for my grandfathers relatives. His surname was Wenerowicz and he came to the United States in 1902. He left behind two sisters and three brothers. He came from Skepe parish. Would appreciate any help

The results of a Google query for this name on Polish pages are here: tinyurl/ctanp
scroll down to find a link to (apparently) a bank of something where a Mr WEenerowicz is named as a contact person and his mboile phone number is given.

The first two links are about a company (firma = company). Then there are some lists of pupils at a school and some other links that I just did not bother to look at in detail.

Looking for Zachar family in Warsaw. My grandfather, Michael Zachar had three sons, Nicholas , William and Michael. Nicholas was my father. My grandfather came to the United States with Nicholas and William and Michael Jr. stayed in Poland and joined the Polish Army. He had two sons. One son was killed and I am looking for the whereabouts of his other son and his family. I think his name is Michael Phillip or Phillip Michael.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you, Teri

Merged:Meaning of surname Wenerowicz, looking for my ancestors

could anyone give me the origin of the surname Wenerowicz and its meaning. I would appreciate any help you can give.

hmm - I think it must have something to do with the word "weneryczny" or "weneryczna" which in Polish means "venereal" (like "venereal disease").

What a sad answer. It might be connected as well with a name of famous lake in Sweden "Vänern". Beacuse the end of the surname "-owicz" soudns like from east part of Poland it's possible that it begins in XVII century during the wars with Sweden (Swedish Flood).

Protoplasta-I want to thank-you for giving me some kinda of hope that possibly there was another meaning. I was quite shocked when I read the first answer. I know that my grandfather came from a village located around the Torun area, also know that there are still some Wenerowicz's in Poland. Thanks once again

I think the end of a surname: "-owicz" suggest an Ukrainian relation, not necessarily Polish (most "original" Polish surnames end "-ski" or "cki").

I was quite shocked when I read the first answer.

Even though you were shocked, "pawel's" interpretation does makes a lot of sense...

I am a Wenerowicz. Who is asking? All of us here in the USA are blood related.

Wasn't aware that all Wenerowicz's here in the states are blood related. I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT MY GRANDFATHER AND HIS TWO NEPHEWS WERE THE ONLY ONES TO COME FROM POLAND.

Merged: Looking for ancestors of Bartlomiej Wenerowicz and Antonina Zioltkowska

Trying to locate any living relatives. They had six children, Jan who came to America in 1902. Michal, Jozefa, Katarzyna, Weronika and Jozef all stayed in Poland. They all were born in Lakie, Skepe, Poland. Any information would be helpful. Thanx

you might want to try or Ellis Island and get more information on what town they landed in first in America..
ancestry is a pay for site, but well worth the money because they have a good abundance of records online and you can find alot of information on these members of your family..

good luck.

33 of Poland's 35 Ziółtkowskis live in the northern Bydgoszcz and neighboring Baltic coastal Słupsk areas. Far more scattered are the main clusters of Poland's 30 Wenerowiczes: Warsaw (7), Konin (7), Gorzów (8) and Katowice (5).
