Hello Jo:

I saw your message in ancestry.com about the family. I have done lots of research on the family history and have been able to trace them back to the mid 1700s. I work on the project when I have time and continually received updated information. For example, I just received a copy of the 1869 census from Obrucne, Slovak Republic, for Julianna Brudnyak's father, Joannes/Brudnyak Stefancsik and his first wife Maria. Through a distant cousin I was able to obtain a copy of the translated Book of Marriages - 1785-1888 of the Leluchow parish from the St. Joseph's Church Archives in Muszyna, Poland. I've met and corresponded with lots of newly found relatives and would love to share the information with the family. If you are interested, please e-mail me at this address or at my work address which is: Chambersdk@state.gov

I'd love to hear from anyone in the family. My address is as follows:

Debbie K. Chambers
15905 Litton Lane
Accokeek, MD 20607
Tel: (h) 301-292-0526
(w) 202-647-9555

I'll be in Seattle on business from November 21 thru December 7 but will contact you when I return.

I'm so glad that someone else has taken an interest in the family history and look forward to hearing back from you. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Debbie

Grucela Surname

Hi:

I apologize, but I just saw your message about the Grucela surname. I spend so much time working on the office computer that I forget to check the home e-mail very often. Sorry.

There is indeed a real possibility that the Grucela name is a variation of the Grucelak name.

My ancestors were from Leluchow, Nowy Sacz, Poland (formerly the Austria-Hungary Empire). Leluchow is located on the border of the Slovak Republic, just south of Tarnow, Poland.

The Grucelak's immigrated to the coal mining communities in Jefferson County, Pennsylvania and the steel mills of Pittsburgh in the 1890s. They changed the name to Brucelak and Krucelyak (as it was written in the Greek Catholic Church records in Circ, Slovak Republic.)

The Polish Genealogical Society of America (e-mail: PGSAmerica@aol.com) informed me that there were no people with the name of Grucelak in Poland as of the 1990 Polish census. However, there were 257 Grucelas', with 77 of them living in Nowy Sacz (the district my family is from). They explained that the name Grucela meant gruca=oaks or groats, or grucz=bump or swelling or gruczel=piglet. Isn't that interesting?

The Grucelak's of Leluchow are related to practically everyone - the Kierpczar's, Barna's, Stefancsik's, Barnowski's, Popovic's, Romaniak's, Hrabczak's, Haszczak's, Pyda's, Sowicz's, Pohlid's, Zydowski's, Gernat's, Brudnyak's.....just to name a few. I recently posted the Leluchow birth, marriage and death records on the internet at www.censusgiver.com (click on record database).

I'd be glad to share any information I have if you are interested. Wouldn't it be neat if there was a connection? I'd be very interested in learning about the Grucela family.

The best way to contact me is at the office. (The e-mail is ChambersDK@state.gov) My home address is:

Our family tree has the BRUDNYAK name in it.
My great- grandfathers' brother, Thomas (Macura) Marzonie had a daughter, Susan who married John Brudnyak. John was born on 25 Aug. 1888. John and Susan had 8 children: Nicholas, Helen, John, Basil, Lucy, Julie, Theresa and Mary. I don't have much on the family but am willing to share if interested.

Hi Marcia:

Yes indeed. I am very familiar with John Brudnyak and Susan Macura and have lots of information on the Brudnyak family. John was younger brother of my great-grandmother, Julianna Brudnyak Krucelyak. I've traced the Brudnyak's of Obrucne, Saris District, Austria Hungary, back to the early 1700s. I have a little bit of information about Susan's background and will have to check my records.

Julie Brudnyak Hogan and her husband, Carl, were very helpful and provided lots of photos, personal memories and even recorded cassette tapes of themselves and John Brudnyak, Sr. Basil sent a colorful description of himself. They are a wonderful family and I hope to meet them in person some time.

If you will provide your mailing address, I'd be glad to send you what I have.

Have a nice Thanksgiving.

Debbie

Hi Debbie,
I am very interested in the information you may have. I don't have much information on that family. All I have are two obituaries, Nicholas J. Brudnyak 11-30-1997 and the husband of Theresa Brudnyak, Frank R. Thomas 8-20-1999. Many in my family changed their name from Macura to Marzonie, I don't know if Susan did or not. My address is Marcia Elsner 11370 Gold Arbor
Plymouth, Michigan 48170. If you want copies of the obits, I will send them to you.
Thanks, Marcia
Happy Thanksgiving !!

Hi Marcia:

Yes. I would be very interested in the Brudnyak obituaries and any information you have on the Macura line. I would be happy to pass it along to Julie and Basil. I'm sure they would be very interested in learning more about their mother's family. I'll send their addresses and phone numbers in case you would like to contact them directly.

My address is:

Debbie K. Chambers
15905 Litton Lane
Accokeek, MD 20607

I'll try to mail your package out on Friday. Take care.

Hi Debbie,
I'm leaving in the morning to visit my sister in Ohio for the weekend. When I get back I'll send you the obits and info on the Macura (Marzonie) family. My grandfather was Michael H. Marzonie. He was from the George Macura side of the family. I hope the information I have helps you and Julie and Basil out. Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Marcia
