Discovering our Ancestors' Travels and Travails

My mother, Stanisława Skrok, was named after her Aunt, Stanisława Skrok, who married Adam Kiec in Buffalo, New York, on 31 August 1914. Stanisława was the younger sister of my grandfather Jan Skrok, Their parents were Wincenty Skrok and Marianna Kasprzyk.

Stanisława was born 24 September 1894 in Kaliszany, Wojciechowice, Opatów, in the Radom Province of the Russian occupied part of Poland. As required by authorities, her birth/baptism record was recorded in Russian, but her name and her parents’ names are also written in Polish in the text.

1894 birth, Stanisława Skrok, Kaliszany, Wojciechowice

Tomasz Kwiatkowski, born about 1868, was a witness and godfather to Stanisława Skrok. He was a neighbor; other connections to this family are not yet clear.

Michał Młodożeniec, son of Franciszek Młodożeniec and Anna Janik, born about 1859, became a widower after the death of his spouse Apolonia Wołek. In 1893, he married Łucja Kasprzycka, daughter of Wincenty Kasprzyk and Agnieszka Kot, in Wojciechowice. After Michał‘s death, his widow Łucja married Jan Kowalski, son of Jakub Kowalski and Marcjanna Błasiak and widower of Elżbieta Cieśla, in 1900 in Wojciechowice. Michał Młodożeniec was a witness for Stanisława Skrok‘s birth.

In 1885, Antonina Bądźwól, daughter of Tomasz Bądźwól and Magdalena Bartkiewicz, married Kajetan Karczewski, son of Walenty Karczewski and Katarzyna Religa? in Wojciechowice. Her married name was Antonina Karczewska in 1894 when she was godmother for Stanisława Skrok.

Stanisława‘s parents Wincenty Skrok and Marianna Kasprzyk were married in 1887. Wincenty was the son of the late Łukasz and Katarzyna Kołek, while Marianna was the daughter of the late Jan Kasprzyk and Małgorzata Bartkiewicz.

Magdalena Bartkiewicz‘s daughter Antonina was godmother to Małgorzata‘s granddaughter Stanisława, What was the relationship between Magdalena and Małgorzata? Were they sisters and their daughters Antonina Karczewska and Marianna Skrok first cousins? More research is needed!
