| The Family started in Krempna and Polany in Galicia, Austria-Hungary in the late 1800s.Ignatz Cenkier, my grandfather, was born in Huta Wysowska and Maria was born in Huta Polanska. The correct surname, Cenkier, was found in the baptism certificate of John Singel, my uncle, in St. Johns Church, Conemaugh, Pa. John's parents were listed as "Ihnat Cenker/Tsenker [possibly reads Cenkor/Tsenkor] - born in Poljany, Krosno County and Maria Vyshnevskij.Much of the information assisting in the search was obtained from the unfinished book by Uncle Steve which is on this home page.Corrections were made from information gathered from 1910, 1920 and 1930 Census. |
Ignatz Cenkier (Singel) shows up in the 1910 Census in East Conemaugh with the name of Ignatz Sinkin.
