Over the last six months, I’ve been ordering and viewing the “Microfilm of original records in the Chautauqua County Courthouse, Mayville, New York, Naturalization records, 1837-1972.”
I’ve been searching for surnames I recognize and people who hailed from Pysznica, Poland and the surrounding areas that I’ve become so familiar with. If I locate a record, I snapshop it for future reference.
Recently I’ve had numerous DNA matches contact me, usually with an email of, “Hello: I see were related, etc, etc, ” I fully enjoy making DNA connections, and what better way to help extended family than to be prepared!
I decided to make a list of names of the people I have and where they are from. If you see a surname and you believe the listed person may be related to you, please contact me.
Most immigrants listed Poland or Austria for their home country (in this case anyways). This is because prior to World War I, Pysznica, Jastkowice, Klyzow & Kata were under Austrian ruler-ship.
