There are a couple of records that will point you in the right direction in your research.
There is a March 28, 1900 Baltimore arrival record for an Ignac “Szczypinski” (manifest looks like Szczypiorski) and his family. They sailed from the port of Bremen Germany on board the S.S. Koln. Their destination was Milwaukee WI.
Members of the family were: Ignac, Bertha (Ignac’s second wife?), Victoria (your grandmother), Martha, Wilhelm, Franz, Maria and Peter (Ignac’s brother).
The family also manages to get included in the 1900 U.S. Census. They were indexed as Ignatz “Szczypinski” living at 727 6th Avenue in Milwaukee Ward14, Milwaukee County, WI (present-day zip code 53204).
Thanks to a grass roots effort called the POZNAN PROJECT
you can find an 1887 digitized marriage record for Ignatius Szczypiorski (age 29) and his bride Anna Bystra (age 19). The marriage record is included in the Kcynia Catholic Parish which also included many small surrounding villages.
You can also find an 1844 digitized marriage record for Ignatius’ parents Joannes Szczypiorski (age 26) and Petronella Lewandowski (age 20).

As you can see, many of the Polish records are available on LDS
(Later Day Saints) microfilm and can usually be rented and viewed locally at your public library. “D” = death, “B” = birth and “M” = marriage.
