I recently found that when my gg-grandparents came through Ellis Island from Poland the name was changed from Gasiorowski to Gonshor. I am desperate for any information on the family. I know there is a connection somewhere. Any help would be most appreciated!!!

I did get a letter from a couple in Texas with the name Gonshor. They said there name was originally Gasiorowski.

John, I tried to find a way to email you but could not~~please email: ninacaty@yahoo.com

I travel allot and use this email consistently. I am so interested in my Grandmother's family. There is such a mystery. I think I could be wrong in the Ellis Island aspect, it could have been Crystal Gardens (the precursor to Ellis Island). Any information would be so appreciated. Thanks, Patty

Hello
I just saw your post from long ago. Today I just found out my great grandmothers name was Appolonia Gasior. She married a Mikal Jewula and lived (after marriage I think) in the village of Ostrusza, Ciezkowice in 1886. Had a son named Franz b.1886. Would love to know if there is any connection. Would love to find birth, baptism, marriage, family (brothers, sisters etc) for Appolonia. Kath

Hi, Saw your old posting and thought I might reply. My greatgrandmother was Apolonia Gasior. Her parents were Franciscus Gasior and Marianna Rutka. Apolonia married Mikal Jewula and lived in Ostrusza, Poland. They had at least six children and one of them, my grandfather Franciscus moved to the US. Franciscus Gasior's parents were Jacobi Gasior and Hedvigis Dziodzio. I do not know where the Gasior family came from but if we are related or if you have any information please contact me huttonteks@aol.com Perhaps we are family. Hope to hear from you and your wife.

Surnames: Gasiorowski, Ganz
There are many families with that surname that came either from the "Pale of Settlement" or from Tsarist Imperial Russia mostly as peasant Jews. The root is Gonchar (see NOTE), which in most slavic languages means "Potter", thus when adding the Russian suffix "owski" or any variant, it changes it to mean "Of/from the ... Estate". The common variants I've seen are as follows: German: Ganz, Gans, (Gonczarowski, Gonszarowski - Germanized Polish variants); Polish: Gonsiorowski, Gonsior, Gąsiorowski; Russian: Гончаровский, Гончар; Hebrew/Yiddish: גאנשעראװסקי . My own family changed theirs to Ganz/Gans when they came to NY from Kowal/Wloclawek, Poland.

NOTE - It has come to my attention that there are two variant meanings to the name. The Polish root forms mean "Gander", which is a male goose. These forms come from the Germanic form of the word for goose, Gans/Ganz. The non-Polish root forms derive from the Slavic translation of the root, "Potter".
