My paternal grandparents, August Rackowski and Marie Achenbach Rackowski, immigrated from Poland to the United States in 1906 and 1909. August was the son of Martin Raczkowski and Rozaliya Zalewski Raczkowski, and he was born in Rutka-Tartak in 1885. Marie was the daughter of Jakob Achenbach and Karolina Schmidtke Achenbach, and she was born in Lisdejke in 1890.
I have been involved in family history research for more than 30 years, following in the footsteps of my father. I look forward to hearing from anyone else researching these surnames and villages.
