My Grandfather, WOJCIECH (ALBERT) SYZDEK was born 17 February 1858 and died 24 June 1943. He immigrated to Bremond, Texas in 1885. Albert's brother (or half brother), Joseph, was in Bremond, Texas for a while. His name appears as a witness on several baptism records in Bremond. The saying goes he loved to whistle and visit downtown Bremond but was very reluctant to work. He went back to Poland and nothing else is known about him. Also, Albert supposedly had sisters(?). One married a DYKAS (?) and lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The other lived in Buffalo, New York. Have no first or married name for her.

Does anyone have information on Homestead Land Records? I was told that there was an index. But where? My great great grandfather, Frank MUSOLF/MOZOLF homesteaded in Rice Lake Township north of Duluth. Milly Kriske, Fall 97

On the marriage license for a brother of my great grandfather, the mother was listed as Maryanna from Ciezka in Poland. Is this the same as Cieszyn southwest of Cracow (map page 6, Summer, 1997 Newsletter)? On another document my great grand- father Szymon WILEBSKI is recorded as from Syubin. Are any readers of the newsletter familiar with these towns/parishes?

Thank you for the information on the village of Piesna in Poland taken from Slownik Geograficzny. It was thrilling to find out the information and the exact location of the village. We will arrange to go to the Family History Center and see if the Family History Library has the records for the church in Lobzenia. I wrote to an archive in Bydogoszcz about records from Piesna and they suggested that I write to the enclosed address in Germany. These are the names I am looking for: Michaelena RYSZKEWICZ (married name KLARKOWSKI, b. ca. 1838), John LAMCZYK (b. ca. 1833) and his wife, Frances Eva WRZESZEZ (b. ca. 1843). All died in St. Paul.

The winter issue of the PGS-MN Newsletter had several interesting articles which pertained to my genealogical research. One was the listing of surnames of people who emigrated from Opole. My great grandfather, John SOLARZ emigrated in 1884 from Falkawice and settled in North Prairie before moving to Holdingford. All of my family genealogy work stems from Silesia including my paternal grandfather Charles LICHY whose family came from Halbendorf and Lenzen, both near Opole. He and his family settled in Arban, Holding Township in 1882. What is different from many others who settled there is he was of German heritage. No one else from his family came to the US so we don't know why his family picked Arban. Our German family roots have been in Silesia since around 1755. My maternal great grandfather, John JARNOT, came from Brzeszcze, Kety in 1903 and settled in Holding- ford because other relatives had already settled there.

I see in the Spring issue of the PGS-MN Newsletter that you are presenting a talk on April 19th in St. Cloud on "Finding Your Ancestral Parish in Poland." I have been trying for some years to find my ancestral home/parish--that of my grandfather Thomas who immigrated in 1878 at age 18 to the U.S., leaving behind his family never to see them again. My dad said that he came from Posen--but that could mean either the city and/or the district. He bought land from the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad and farmed for some years southwest of Taunton, MN next to an older neighbor who was also from Posen. Taunton is 18 miles northwest of Marshall. I've searched through Mormon Church records, in Minnesota Historical Society records and in Taunton church records, etc. and have found nothing giving me his birthplace. I'd like to make a trip to Poland to find the ancestral home but of course would need to know the location to go. Would you have any suggestions as to how I could trace him to his hometown and/or parish? Thanks for your consideration. Szarzynski, Sum 97

Seeking information about AGNES POLUS (PAULUS) [and her descendants], daughter of JOSEF POLUS and ANNA POLCYN, born between 1835 and 1850 in Ludomy, District of Obornik, Poznan, Poland. She came to the U.S. prior to 1866. She first settled in Green Lake County, Wisconsin, married ? PRAISS and moved to Minnesota.Spr 97 Krentz

Researching ZAK, KNOLL/KNIOLA/KJOWA, POKORNOWSKI, BIELEJEWSKI, KAMINSKI, NOVAKOWSKI, BIALCZK, KONIAR, LASCZAK surnames in Watenburg, Poznan and Mieczybrodzik in Poland and in Silver Lake and Sobieski/Swan River/Little Falls area in Minnesota, Chicago, Illinois and possibly in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and Northeast Minneapolis. The family of ZAK are first found in the 1880 census. They lived on Mary Street in Chicago. The oldest brother Stanislaus lived with his wife Katherine, children Constantine, Mike and Cessy, brother John Zak, brother-in-law John Schultz and C. Buczowski. They are each listed as originally coming from Pommerania except for Katherine, who was from Posen. Posen was very close to the border of Pommerania. The same family next appears in Silver Lake, Minnesota in the1885 state census. The members at that time include the parents Peter and Franciska. It would be interesting to know where the parents were located in 1880. Were they still back in Pommerania or in Silver Lake? They are not to be found in Chicago at that time. Another interesting thing to know would be, what was the sister's name that was married to the brother in law, John Schultz. I have found no record of her. In the 1890's the family appears in Swan River (Sobieski) in Morrison County. In 1910 or 1912 some of the family moved on to Oregon City, Oregon to work in a paper mill and some open up a saloon. John Zak and his family remain in Minnesota. In the 1900 census they are found in Little Falls. Then in the 1910 census they move on to Pulaski township, near Harding, MN. I have reconstructed the family as follows: PETER ZAK (1825-1886) d. Glencoe, Minnesota m. FRANCISKA BIELEJEWSKI(1831-?). 1. Stanislaus ZAK (1852-1900) m. Katherine POKORNOWSKI (1853-?). Children: Konstanty (Chris) (1874-1948?), Michel (1876-1914) m. Polly MROZIK, Wenceslaus (1878-1914), Rose (1880- 1925), Wladislaw (Walter) (1883-?), Leon (1885- 1962), Marie (1886-1978), Wanda (1887-1958), Stella (1891-1926).
2. John (Peter) ZAK (1862-1916) 1st m. Antonia KUIZMA (1865-1890?), 2nd m. Mary KNOLL(KNIOLA) (1872-1946). Children: Walter (1885-?), Mary (1886-?), Stanley, Steven, Cecil, Peter (1892-1975) m. Alma REIMAN (1897-1936), Adam (1895-1983) m. Tillie KAMINSKI, Raymond (1898-1956) m. Rose PAVLAK, Mary KONIAR, Sam (1902-) m. Agnes GUSTAFSON, Marge (1905- 1983) m. Vince BORASH, Tom (1907-1958) m. Ann WARHOL, Celia (1910-) m. Ted VIRNIG, Martin (1912-1983) m. Gladys MATHISON.
3. Simon ZAK (1865-1900?) m. Michalena NOVAKOWSKA (1865-?). Children: Joseph (1889-?) m. Mary MILLER, Rosa (1891-?) m. Mike TRAFAS, Frank (1893-?) m. Rose WOZNIAK, John (1894-?) m. Nettie KOLACZ. 4. Frank ZAK (1869-?)
5. Sister m. John SCHULTZ Names that frequently appear as friends, neighbors, or related by marriage are: OVAKOWSKI, POKORNOWSKI, BIELEJEWSKI, PAWLAK, KRYCH, KAMINSKI, BRISK, BARASH, SCHULTZ, KRAWZAK, KNOLL, OSCEK, BIALCZK.The unsolved mysteries of this family are to find out what happened to Frank Zak, the youngest boy, and also to find out who was the girl that was married to John Schultz. The death certificate of Francis Bielejewski and the gravesite have not been found. Also the exact city that they came from in Europe has never been determined. There is a discrepancy between two documents. One says Pommerania and one says Posen. There are relatives that believe it was Posen. The village of Watenberg is identified as place of origin on one of the stories. This place has not been found in Pommerania or Posen. There is a possibility that it was located in the spot where there were many border changes. Also many of the towns and villages have undergone name changes and many no longer exist. There is also the matter of the name of Zak, which does not come up in the area that they were from. The name Zak is very common in southern Poland and Czechoslovakia. This brings us back to the possible theory of the name being shortened from Zakrzewski. This name appears frequently in the old villages of southern Pommerania, Posen and West Prussia. These by the way are now located in what is now northern Poland in the district of Bydgoszcz and Chojnice, near Gdansk. Anyone who has any answers please write to me at my address listed above.

Winter 97-98 -- Spring 98

I have been researching my family surname, CIEMINSKI, for nearly 20 years now. I have several marriage certificates I obtained from Salt Lake City. One is of Anton KULAS and Mary Cieminski. I do not know who Mary's parents are or where she was born or died. They were married in Winona, MNbut the bottom half of the marriage certificate was never filled out, so I can't give you a date. According to the 1900 census for Winona, Anton was born August 1857(age 42) in Poland, Prussia. They lived at 957 Sanborn. Mary was born in June 18(61)? in Poland. Their children are: Mike (born Oct in Minnesota), John (b. May 1891), Joseph (b. Jan 1895), Blanche (b. June 1898) and Valeria (b. Dec 1899). Are there more children in this family? Who are Anton and Mary's
parents? Where was their place of berth? Also, does anyone know Andrew KUKOWSKI and Mary (Cieminska) Kukowski, Thomas SEVERSON and Mary (Cieminski) Severson, Joseph HOPKA and Pauline (Cieminski) Hopka, and Ignatz GROZONIE (GRZONA?) and Anna (Cieminska) Grzonie?
