Genealogy / Americans of Polish descent. How many of us are on Polish forums? [216]

Growing up I was really never told alot about where my ancestor's came from, and at a young age I really never cared. I always remembered people constantly messing up the pronunciation of my name. Of course always getting the typical, "you must be a polack". Never really knowing what "being a polack" really meant. When I had my son is when I wanted to know my roots, so I would be able to answer those questions when he got older. It's been a very fun and emotional quest, finding where my roots came from. I want my son to grow up being proud of his roots, and that is my goal. I will be going to Poland in July of 2011 to see where my grandparents came from and stay with some distant relatives I came in contact with through Polish Forums. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and stories.

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.

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

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.

Genealogy / Surname: Krowiorz from Trembatschau (Trebaczow) / Sikora (Schikora?) [33]

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?
