    Hi.  I plan to research surnames listed on your C-RS message to see if I have DNA connections to the surnames.  If your family was born near Debno, Podkarpakie Poland, or Bodrogaz area of Southeast Slovakia, I collaborate with two individuals who are world experts in these two areas.

    If my research confirms a DNA connection to you, I will contact you by email to collaborate.  Feel free to contact me any time.

    Hunter,


    From what I see from your tree on Ancestry.com, you don't need much help from us but these sources may be helpful to you.  Your Lemko areas have incomplete records available (at least right now) but you can get some information.

    Hello all,

    My great grandmothers family came from SE Poland. Specifically, from Lesko, Czaszyn, Sanok, and Lukowe (to my knowledge). 

    Her birth name was Mary Miszczyszyn or Miscisin and she went by Marie Mecyssne or Marie Roman (after marriage). 

    Mary’s parents were Jan Miszczyszyn (1881) and Katarzyna Dobrzanska (1884). Jan was born in Czaszyn and Katarzyna was from Lukowe. 

    I know Jan had several siblings: Daniel (1881 twin), Katarzyna, & one sister listed as “unknown sister  living in Europe” from Jan’s 1946 obituary. I’m interested to find this unknown sister and more information on Jan and his parents. His parents were Daniel Miszczyszyn and Zofia Kudlik. Although, in a “where is that Lemko” it refers to Jan’s dad as Ivan. So, his dads name is unconfirmed. On Jan’s death certificate it lists his father as “john” and on his sister katarzynas death certificate it lists father as “Dan” + gives a village name... I assume his sister may have had more contact with relatives as her documents list more information such as parents full names, villages, etc... I must note his sister katarzyna married John George Pestrak. A lemko from Sanok, who became mayor of Warren Ohio. 

    in terms of my 2nd great grandma, Katarzyna Dobrzanska, I know that her last place of residence was Lukowe and that she had one sister named Julka Dobrzanska or Julia Dobranska whom she traveled with by ship in 1905 to monessen, PA. I would like to find out who her parents were and if there were more siblings.

    Jan and Katarzyna married in 1908 at St. Mary’s Greek Catholic Church in Monessen, PA and had my great grandma Mary in 1909. They can be found in the 1910 monessen census as the “Meshushans”. Two boarders lived with them, Max Kroal and one other Kroal. 

    Around 1912 Jan and Katarzyna plus their siblings and other relatives in Monessen (solan family) moved to Hammond, Indiana for work. There, they attended St. michaels Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Since then, the family has identified as Ukrainian. Jan was a member of the Ukrainian national association as well. 

    Jan and Katarzyna passed away in 1945 and 1946 leaving 8 children: Mary (eldest), John, George, Stephen, Peter, Rose, Anna, & Michal.
