In Reply to: Szczypiorski Family Zablocie/Kcynia and Smolniki by Lawrence Marczak of 56449

Hi Lawrence,
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
http://poznan-project.psnc.pl/,
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).
Go to the web site and for the for the Groom surname type-in Szczypiorski and from the first name drop-down box select Ignatius/Ignacy/Ignatz for the first name. For the Bride surname type-in Bystra and from the first name drop-down box select Anna for the first name. Next click-on EXTENDED SEARCH. The result will produce an 1887 marriage index for Ignatius Szczypiorski (age 29) and his bride Anna Bystra (age 19).
The people, who created this Poznan Project Marriage Index, also provided a list of the source documents where these records were found. To see a list of those source documents merely click-on the Kcynia [Exin] hyperlink.
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.
Best regards,
Norbert
