MY GRAND MOTHER HAD A CHICKEN FARM IN SOMERVILL AND LIVED IN MANNSVILL NEW JERSEY.
I was interested to read about your karasinski family in New York. My husband's last name was Karasinski but his grandfather changed it to Keroson. Keroson's live in Michigan and Chicago. His great-grandfather was John Karasinski and came over from Germany.....however....the story goes that he actually took the last name Karasinski from a (dead) Russian soldier. We have immigration records for John Karasinski. please email with anything you might be able to add.
not a russian soldier....but a Polish soldier
IF THE SOLDIER IN QUESTION WAS AUSTRIAN, THEY COULD HAVE BEEN FIGHTING RUSSIA...THUS POLISH SOLDIERS. IF HE GOT IDENTITY PAPPERS FROM A POLISH SOLDIER , IT COULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF MY ANSETORS. HE COULD THEN ,. HAVE MORE EASILY EMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES.......PARIS AND FRANCE WAS AT THE TIME FULL OF POLISH REFUGEES THAT WOULD NOT FIGHT FOR AUSTRIA OR RUSSIA, BUT WERE VERY MUCH WILLING TO FIGHT FOR THERE OLD ALLIE , THE FRENCH. VERY INTERESTING SENIRIO , IT CERTINALY HAPPEN MORE THEN ONCE. THE NAME HOWEVER [ KARASINSKI] HAD A BRANCH OF THE FAMILY THAT HAPPEN TO BE POLISH ROYALITY. THE FUN OF THAT IS CARRIED OVER TO THE NEW WORLD TO SOME SMALL DEGREE. CHECK A WEB SITE ----WWW.COMPANIONS

Chester...my name is Jo Beth. I'm named after my mother's two sisters; Josephine & Elizabeth. I'm glad that you have the genealogy about your grandparents. Perhaps you can check them out with your father. What does the "S" stand for in your father's middle name.
Why do so many people have problems with the finding the genealogy on the family of Karasinski..is due primarily because Poland was invaded so many times by the Russia, Austria, Germany...etc. The borders of Poland have changed more times than I change socks! I know that they is a statue in a part in Poland of a General Karasinski. I've heard that the name of Karasinski is suppose to mean; Forest. But I made way of base on that...but I know that my grandmother's name is Malnowski...and it means; either rasperries or strawberries. Polish History is fascinating...of course it depends on what year you start reading about it. It's better to read about Poland from the beginning...and then you see all the changes of the country's borders. If you want my email address, please contact your sister, Debbie. I'm glad that you are well...thanks for answering my posting. Jo Beth
E-MAIL ADDRESS AND HISTORY
SEND ME YOUR E- MAIL ADDRESS WHEN YU CAN. DEBE IS AWAY AGAIN. DAD'S MIDDLE INITIAL .....S......STANDS FOR STANDLY. THERE WAS A GENERAL KARASINSKI, BARON KARASINSKI , AND A DUKE , ALL OF THE SAME NAME. ALSO ONE POLANDS WELL KNOWN POETS WAS A KARASINSKI. THIS WAS DURRING THE ''ROMANTIC ERA'' [ VICTORIAN ERA] KARASINSKI CAN MEAN GREAT ONE, GREAT SEA, AND CARP FISHERMAN. INTERESTING HISTORY. I THINK IOUR NSTER ESCAPED AFTER THE NISSO-RUSSIAN WAR AND HEADED FOR AMERICA,INTERESTING HISTORY. SUPPRISED THAT YOU REMEMBERED ME. CHESLOV
Chester..I would prefer it if you get my email address from Debbie...because I don't want mine posted on the message board. Of course..if you want to give me your email address...that would be fine. I know that Debbie is away since both of her husband's parents died within a couple of weeks of each other. That event must be pretty hard on Mark and Debbie's girls.
You could be right about the meaning of Karasinski...but I heard that Karasin meant "forest" and we know that "ski" means "son of"..just like "O", "Mac", "Mc", "Sky", etc. Of course that means...O'Sullivan means "the son of Sullivan."
I'm glad that you survive your accident so well and you are able to do all the things you do now. Yes..I remember you...we took photos of you with the twins.
Say "Hi" to your parents for me. Jo Beth
