|Wancio, Wanco, Laski
I am researching my maternal grandmother from Sonuk or Sanoczek. My research has been limited to US records. I don't know when or where she arrived here. Her life was spent in CT and mostly in the New Britian area. Marriage licensce shows her name as Eva Laski, Austria. Parents, Andrew Laski and Anna Wanco both Austria. My mother's 1916, birth certificate also shows Eva Laski, age 23, Sonuk, Gallicia, Austria.
The 1920 census for New Britian lists my grandfather, Leon Gould, grandmother, Eva and my mother Alice. Also Mary Wanco, Eva's younger sister. Mary arrived in NY aboard Kronprinz Wilhelm, Nov 22 1910. Mary gives her father's name as Jekrzej Wancio a nickname for Andrew as I understand it from other researchers. Mary's marriage license list parents as Andrew Wanco and Anna Lasky.
