Ratajski can be found in europe as written see it under Ratajski (thread) names.
This has been edited due to inability to make corrections once it is sent to this website to post.
So, I established RATAI as the base name. Through many years of research (without local help of Teena Hintz to europe) it was accomplished. Her goal was to gather the entire detail of all Ratajski family members... Though in my opinion born in America. Good job. Well done.
So, give credit for Teena Hintz because of her dedication to one of many of her local tree/s of her family including my Ratajski family in America.
I took europe as my quest. It is now done. Though I will add new details as they become available.
I have been back to Poland again, this year. And have many new pictures - though will only share with family who like to share what pictures they have. I have been to all the places my direct families have lived. Mission accomplished.
Gross Wartenberg/now Sycow, Poland became just that after WWII. And lands west was Germany/Prussia (became Poland's). While lands way east of Poland that were Poland's was given to Russia afterh WWII.
So, this site I give to you is for future generations who often wonder where our family came from.http://www.gross-wartenberg.de/phpgedview/index.php?ctype=ge
Also you should be able to find those names of married (though born in europe too) individuals. I do not plan to ever post my immediate family to websites. Please note that under MEDIA tab you will find all pictures I was able to get from family including Teena Hintz. Though we hope someday she will SHARE pictures and send a dvd/cd disc to my direct cousin.
Also there is a website that is called gross wartenberg.
It has MANY pictures of now Sycow Poland area.
Here it is:http://www.gross-wartenberg-sycow.pl/
