I had to Laugh when I read the bit about MOB family members. My great-grandfather was Joseph Zakrzewsi. Owned a business in Detroit. We have no info on his life outside of his childred, many stories going around that he was a mob member and his store was a front for his activity. He supposibably made many runs to Chicago, but NO PROOF, just wild stories. TOO STRANGE!

My Grandmother was Klementyna Zakrzewski and her family disowned her when she married Edward Slodowski in Jersey City, in 1906. I haven't been able to find out anything about her family, but I assume they were from the Jersey City area too. Do you have any info about the Zakrzewskis from the early part of the 1900's?

Nicole, I just saw your two year old response to a question on the Ancestry Board about the Jersey City/Hoboken Zakrzewskis. I'm looking into what may be a different family but you never know. My grandmother, Klementyna Zakrzewski was born in 1886 to John and Magdalena Zakrzewski in Jersey City. According to her birth Certificate, she was their 6th child and I don't know if others were born after her. I lose track of her father until 1920 when he shows up as a farmer in Riverhead, Long Island. A daughter, Nellie, I think, lives there too with her husband.
If any of this sounds remotely familiar, please drop me a note.

Tom

Surnames: Zakrzewski
My father's family is Zakrzewski, and lived in Jersey City, NJ at the turn of the century and tereafter. What I have is that three Zakrzewski brothers emigrated (first Czeslaw and Micrislaw in 1907, then my grandfather Anthony in 1909) from the Kolno area of Lomza, Poland (which at the time was I think still Russia). The first brothers were joining their uncle Frank in Jersey City - I don't know when he came to the US, but he was born in Poland. Frank died in 1933 at the age of 65. Czeslaw - Chester - died in 1932. Micrislaw - Mitchell - died in 1911.

Does any of this match anything you have? I know that there were also brothers Louis and Martin Zakrzewski in Jersey City in the 1930s. My father called them his uncles, but they wre more likely cousins of Chester, Mitchell and Anthony. Possibly they were sons of Frank, but I think not because Frank shares a grave with Chester, Mitchell and Anthony instead...

Fingers crossed,

Steph

Steph, How many Zakrzewskis can there be?? (Tons, actually - mostly mid-west) My greatgrandfather was John (Jan?) Zakrezewski, married to Magdelena Matkiewicz. He was born in Russian Poland in June, 1854 - don't know where. He came to America (Jersey City) alone in 1879 and was followed in 1881 by his wife and 3 children. Four more children were born in J.C. during the 1880's, including my grandmother, Clementine.
Your Zakrzewskis came 25 years after him but were of the same age as my grandmother and the others born here. There was a brother, Eddie Zakrzewski, who was born into the family in 1885. I could never find him after that and have wondered if he had a family (or even survived).
According to the 1910 census, John & Maggie had moved to Long Island where he was a saloon keeper (!) and then a farmer. He died in 1930.
St. Anthony of Padua seems to have been the church of choice for many Polish immigrants and I have found some family records from there. Might be worth a look if you haven't already looked there.
Well, there's no obvious match up, but I don't believe that's the end of the story. Family usually followed family in the emigrations. Cousins maybe? Or is Zakrzewski the equivalent of Smith??

Thanks for the reply. I understand that Zakrzewski IS actually the equivalent of Smith! Well, at least regionally. There are apparently not as many different Polish names as one would think. I have tons of lovely info on my grandmother's family from St Anthonys, and thus the weddings of two of the Zakrzewski brothers (they each married my grandmother!). I'll definitely keep you in mind should I turn up anything that suggests we have a link!

Steph,
And I'll do the same.
Just in case you run across them, the names of John and Magdelena's children were Agnes (Ignaes {B-1877}), Bella (1880), Caroline (1881), Eddie(1885), Nellie(1884), Clementine(1887), and Lillie(1890).
Ya' never know!

Regards, Tom
