Radziszewski origins

Does anyone know specifically where their Radziszewski ancestors came from in Europe?? The only info we have is what my mom's last uncle could remember back in 1975. After thinking quite a while, he remembered that his parents came from Lemberg (Lemburg??), Germany. However, they spoke only Polish. I believe Poland was not on the map when they came over (around 1890). I've been told that Lemberg may now be Lebork, Poland. But I also know that Lvov in Ukraine was called Lemberg when it was part of the Austrian (German-speaking) Empire in the 1800s. In addition, Lvov was once part of Poland and had/has a lot of Poles in it. Lebork (in northwestern Poland) and Lvov are not at all close to each other, so I can't even narrow down an area to look in. Can anyone help??

My family comes from central part of Poland.I guss Radziszewskis from Lwow(ger.Lemberg;ukr.Lviv) are the another branch of this family.My mothers father was born 1916 in Lwow and I`m going to visit this town and Ukraina this year.My fathers father had 3 brothers:Bartlomiej,Franciszek and Stefan.Franciszek and Stefan have stayed in Poland.My family has no infos about Bartlomiej Radziszewski.He was sure to left Poland at the beginning of the 1900`s or earlier.He was in France and Belgium and my family losed a contact with Bartlomiej.My father LtCol.Antoni Bogumil Radziszewski(born in 1940) is the only son of Antoni Radziszewski(born in 1901;dead in 1964).His grandparents were Ignacy and Jozefa Radziszewski.Ask Len for more infos on Personal Home Page of Vladimir Radziszewski(Radushevsky) from St.Petersburg/Russia;e-mail:vrad@vrad.spb.ru.His family seems to came from Estern Poland,Lwow area.Good luck!

My Great great grandmother, Anna Brunoslawa Radziszewska (1841-1906)
lived in Bromberg/Bydgoszcz Prussia. She married Bruno Kazimierz Balcerowicz.
They spoke German. Do you have any information about Radziszewskis in Prussia?

Christine,
To confuse my own confusion on where my Radziszewski ancestors came from, my mom says her dad (Stanley Radziszewski) used to taunt her mother that she should respect her betters since she was from poor farmer stock and he was of fine Prussian stock. That is all I know about Radziszewskis and Prussia. It's interesting that you mention Bydgoszcz since that is where my relatives on my dad's side live today. It also would be interesting to find that my mom's relatives may not have come from Lemberg but from Bromberg/Bydgoszcz. But I'm beginning to think I'll never know for sure.
And it could be that you and I are related.....

My Radziszewski's came from Bransk, Ciehanowiec, and Koce Borowe in Bialystok, Poland. My grandparents came in 1905. Some documents say it was Russia at that time. Have you ever heard the Radziszewski name associated with Royalty. It was said in our family that someone from Royalty married a commoner and was bannished from the castle. This is from the family name history I have. The Polish family name Radziszewski is classified as being of habitational origin. In this particular instance, the name Radziszewski may be trached to the town of Radziszewo, which lies southwest of Szczerin near the Polish-German border. I hope this information helps. I still have cousins in Bransk Poland.

My dad had mention the same story to me the same thing. But I have not been able to find anything. I got close to a princess but it has not been confirmed. My Radziezewski are out of Gdansk (Danig), which was also part of Prussia and Russia. Our family has settled in the Chicago area

It must not be my relative you're looking at in the census. I don't have the Census subscription anymore, but I did find my great-grandparents in - I believe - 1900 using the name Radke. My mom's one uncle legally changed his name to Radtke somewhere along the line. Anyway, they definitely did not come from Austria. I have found their records in the Polish village of Lembarg - once Lemberg in German Prussia - in the area of Grudziadz in north-central Poland. Plan to visit there some day.
I may have also found their immigration record from 1882, but the name is Germanized there too. So I'm not sure it's them.
Some writers mentioned royalty in the Radziszewski background....Not in my family! My relatives came here poor as dirt, and died in Chicago only somewhat better off.
