I have devoted much of my research (5 years) to my father's side of the family. The first Mazurek to come to the US was Franciszek (Poznan) who arrived in 1880. He married Marianna Strelewicz (from Znin) in Chicago in 1882. I have all the US census records, marriage and death. I am unable to find anything about Franciszek before coming to the US. The Lipinski/Kwiatkoski line is my mothers. She was born in Warsawa and came to the US after WWII. I am looking for information on her grandparents who had a farm in Wola Smolana. His name was Adam Lipinski.
