I am from the US. I found that my great,great grandfather was born in the city of Trembatschau, which I have found out is now called Trebaczow, in 1864. He immigrated to the US in 1881. The only other thing I know about him is his wifes name and that she was born in Neudorf. How and who could I contact in Trebaczow to obtain some more information?

Be careful there were at least a dozen places in Poland with this name.

Do you have more info so that we can help you be more precise.

I dont have anymore info on Julia who was born in Neudorf. I did notice that there were alot of towns with that name. I'm concentrating more on Joseph who was born in Trembatschau. I'm just trying to find someone who could possibably lead me in the direction of the person who would have access to the records from Trembatschau.

The name KROWIOZ ist in the church book Trembatschau available.
By what name, first name are you looking for?
Krowiorz, Joseph, born 1837 Trembatschau, Father: Krowiorz, Michel, farmer, Housewife: Sonnek, Julie, married: 11.11.1863 in Trembatschau
Ist this ok

Hello Mattkrow
I think, Joseph Krowiorz, is maybe the father from Joseph Krowiorz. You see, Joseph Krowiorz was born 1837, he married 1863. Your Joseph Krowiorz is born 1864 in Trembatschau. It is possible.

The family Sonnek is from Trembatschau emigrated in the USA. You must google Sonnek.

Hello Richard
That is great information for me. I am very thankful. I did have some information that Joseph's mothers maiden name was Sonnek,but I did not know if it was correct. Where did you get this information, and how can I access it to be able to get some copies made of the documents. Thank you very much. Matt

Trembatchau is today Trębaczów, next to Oleśnica, next to Wrocław. The name means the trumpet village.

You can find relations through or the Polish, this service will show you the spread of yout last names in European countries.

Sikora and Krowiorz are both Silesian names

Also I have found a couple of lost cousines in the USA so far from the Krowiorz side.

Anyone live in Southern part of Wielkopolskie?

My name is Matt Krowiorz. I think I have some relatives that live in the southern part of Wielkopolskie. Could possibly be in the Dolnoslaskie as well. My great, great grandfather was from Trebaczow. So I'm guessing maybe some are still in the area possibly. I saw on a list that was conducted before the 49 province's were cut down to 16, that the surname Krowiorz showed up 22 times in Kaliskie, which is now in Wielkopolskie. It said that is was a small part of the South East in Lodzkie. What I'm wanting is if someone would have access to a phone book. So I could write a letter to a possible relative to see if they can help me with finding out more about my past. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess I don't understand what the issue is? I have found some confirmation that there are people who are alive that live in Poland with my last name. I still have not found a way to obtain names and address' of people in Poland. I do not have access to a phone book from over there and can not find a way to obtain that information on the internet.

In my opinion it would be hard to find anyone who lived there before II World War, or any people with roots. In 1945th when Red Army was comming, Germans managed evacuation from Silesia. I think not so many people came back, and who came could be find as a spy or German... and then removed to Germany.

Easier would be find the house, if it exists. 1 year ago I had bought a house in Riemberg (Roscislawice) and then I found there many mementos and souvenirs from the past (especially beer bootles :D )

Found it.

Glausche, Schlesien, Germany
Now is = Gluszyna,Namyslowski,Opolskie, Poland

All my relatives on my fathers side are from Schlesien and I am starting to find records for the areas. I now have some back to the mid 1700's. Not bad since all i had to start with was a couple of great grand parents names. from the late 1800's.

This is why I need to be sure which town I am looking for.

I've been searching for information re August Schikora, who married my husband's great aunt, Delia Flannigan, in Chicago, probably in the early 1900's. I know they had at least one son according to census records from that era. If there's any possibility this family might have been connected to your's, please feel free to contact me and I'll happily share what information I have.
