I am not real familiar with the different areas of Poland yet, but I am very interested in any possible connections to the following names from Poland.
I have a Lawrence Kwiatkowski married to Frances Kalinowski from the area of Przybyslaw/Turzany/Parchanie/Inowroclaw.
Lawrence and Frances had a daughter Josephine born in Przybyslaw I am guessing @ 1870, so Lawrence would be born @ 1850....all guess work on the dates. However, Josephine did marry 2nd husband Joseph Szczupak in Rochester NY 20 January 1908. He emigrated to US in MAy 1907 w/first wife and children, so Joseph and Josephine could have known each other/been from same area. Josephine died 12 March 1946 in Rochester.
Other names from the same area are Kaliska, Niewiadowski, Burmistrzak, Paprocki, Borowicz, Adamski, Zwierzykowska, Karminska, Kruszynski, Kryger/Krygier/Krieger and Ulanowski.
Maryanna (Mary) Borowicz and Joseph Szczupak m. 25 November 1891 in Parchanie. Mary was dau. of Franciszek Borowicz and Cordula Karminska. Mary was b. 21 Mar 1874 in Parchanie. Joseph was b. 8 June 1855 in Turzany, and they emigrated to US in April 1907. Mary died shortly after arrival in NY, as did one of the children (before they were through Ellis Island processing). They had at least 5 children that we have found.
Turzany is a small community @ 4 km west of Parchanie, and Parchanie is @ 8 km east of Inowroclaw. All in the Posen/Poznan area. Most of the families were married in or buried from St. Nicholas Church in Inowroclaw. At some point in history, these villages/towns may have been under Polish/German/Russian rule, but the families have always considered themselves Polish.
