Paulette's Dziurzyński Ancestors

When I was searching the Internet for connections to my Dziurzyński ancestors, I came across some information posted by Paulette Mackuliak who was searching for her Dziurzyński ancestors in the same part of Poland where my ancestors lived.  I also found a reply from Georgia Dziurzynski whose husband’s Dziurzynski ancestors were also from southern Poland.

Paulette and I exchanged some information on our ancestors.

The Family Record Sheet Paulette sent me is provided below.  Notice the comment in the upper right hand corner zmiana nazwiska z “Dziura” 28.10.1915 meaning change of surname from “Dziura” October 28, 1915.

Dziurzynski family

As Paulette and I discovered after several emails and a telephone conversation, our ancestors shared the same surname and at least some lived in the same village of Sielnica and attended the same church in Dylagowa.  In addition, my ancestors changed their name from Dziura to Dziurzyński sometime between 1901 and 1905 and Paulette’s ancestors changed their name from Dziura to Dziurzyński on October 28, 1915.  Finally, the surname Sowa appears in family records in both of our families.

Paulette and I have not discovered any direct connections between our families, but our Dziurzyński ancestors lived in the same small village in Galicia at the same time.  A search of the Dylagowa church records may reveal clues to both of our ancestors and may even show evidence of a common ancestor.  And so, the search continues.
