Surnames: ZIELINSKI WITKOWSKI Zhylinski Grazewicz
Elaine and Melody,
My great-grandfather was Michael Zloty who was born 1864 in Pakarsys, Lithuania, near the town of Nedzinge. He settled in Punxsutawney, PA. His mother was Kostanzja Grazewicz (b. 1823). Her mother was Apolonia Zhylinska (b.abt. 1800). Variations of that name include Zielinski. Michael's grandmother on his father's side was Bogumila Witkowska, born abt 1800. Many families named Grazewicz, Witkowski, and Zhylinski lived in farm villages north and northeast of Nedzinge. They are all in the church records, available online. Last year I spoke with a woman in Poland who regularly visits Zhylinski and Grazewicz family in the Nedzinge area, so they are still there. I believe there were Witkowski relatives who moved to Cambridge, Mass., after 1900, and who can be found in the census reports and passenger lists.
