My grandmother, Genevieve (Chronowska) Wajda, settled in Detroit/Wayne County, probably in the 1900s or 1910s. She and her husband, Josef Wajda, were probably from southeast Poland -- I have pictures mentioning the towns of Tarnow and Rzeszow. They had eight children, who changed the family name to the phonetic Vida and the anglicized Wayde.

I know that other members of my grandmother's Chronowski family members also lived in the Detroit area. My mother mentions her Uncle Joe Chronowski, who I believe owned a brewery and other businesses, and was fairly well to do.

I, too, am attempting to learn more about the exact places of origin of the Chronowksi (and Wajda) families. I have a large group picture that I believe includes Chronowski family members in Poland, which I will send separately.

If you are able to learn more, please think of me. Thanks.

Chronowski family!

Hello,

I'm hoping we can help each other. My grandfather's name was JOSEPH CHRONOWSKI. He married MARY CHRONOWSKA (they were third cousins). They came from outside of Krackow Poland and immigrated to the United States sometime between 1909 and 1920. The name was changed to RENOSKY when they came over. They lived in Beyer/Sagamore, Pennsylvania.

I believe the people you had mentioned are related to my family. I am told that my Aunt (Anne Renosky) moved to Detroit to be near more of the family (Chronowski). She has since passed, so I'm stuck with trying to go beyond my grandparents and great-grandparents.

I have more information, and names of other relatives. I am not sure if this is part of the lineage you are looking for. I am guessing that it is. If so, I hope we can compare notes and find more information.
