As researchers, we are often interested in the surnames from surrounding area where our ancestors lived. My father's family came from Hucisko, Poland in the parish of Niwiska, near Kolbuszowa.
Before I began researching my grandfather's family, the only surnames that I was aware of was Warunek and Opiela or Zadlo, but as the quest continued over the years, more names were added.
This information came from a baptismal certificate which was issued in the late 1940's and a typed form which gave basic names and dates.
The parents of Jozef Warunek, my grandfather, were Jan and Anna Zadlo, although for many years we thought it was Anna Opiela. It is written that way in some of the church records in Detroit but have no supporting documents from Poland to prove otherwise so I have to go by the names on Jozef's baptismal certificate.
Once I learned about the wonderful collection of microfilms preserved by the Mormon Church, I was able to further investigate my ancestors. I could only hope that all the years I needed to look at were microfilmed by the Mormons. As time passed, I found out that was not the case, but that is another story.
By spending countless hours viewing microfilm 0996700, I was able to extract many surnames connected to my branch of the Warunek family and others. This roll covers the years 1785-1855.
Some of these surnames are: Bialek, Cebula, Cwanek, Dluzen, Dziewit, Guzior, Kasza, Jemiolo, Kuca, Kuna, Mazur, Opiela, Regula, Saj, Staron, Swider, Warunek, Zadlo, Ziemba, Zielinski and Zuba.
