GRACZYK of Wszedzien, kreis Mogilno, province Bydgoszcz (Poznan area), Poland
Posted by: Craig Kanalley (ID *****3065) Date: August 11, 2003 at 20:30:03
  of 77

My great-great-grandfather was Walenty Graczyk, born Dec. 30, 1865 in Wszedzien, Mogilno, Bydgoszcz, Poland. He was the son of Jozef Graczyk & Marianna Maciejewska. In 1890/1891 he married Anna Piasecka, who was born in a nearby village called Strzelce in 1870, daughter of Michal Piasecki & Katarzyna Andrzejewska. Walenty & Anna left Hamburg, Germany on April 3rd, 1891 and made the trip to America. They settled in Buffalo, New York. Later they bought a farm in Lancaster, NY. After Anna's death in 1931, Walenty moved back to the city of Buffalo, where some of the family still lives today.

Walenty & Anna had the following children: Leokadia 1891 (married Ratajczak), Bernice 1893 (married Turosz/Kuras), Anthony 1895 (married Fronckowiak), Stanislaw 1897 (married Busczkowska), Frank 1900 (married Cofta), Stanislawa 1903 (married Ratajczak), Cecylia 1905 (married Brauza), Stephen 1908 (married Iglinska), Genevieve 1911 (married Brauza). There are many descendants. If you think you may be one of them, please contact me!

Walenty had two brothers, Michal and Jan, who also settled in Buffalo, NY. I don't believe Jan ever married. But Michal has numerous descendants carrying the Graczyk surname. So if you are looking for Graczyk's in the Buffalo area, you may very well be related!

Here are Walenty's ancestors as I know them so far. I am still going through records in Poland and I am adding more all the time.
