Research notes I last tracked my ZALEWSKI/LINDNER ancestors from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Święte, Grudziądz County, where they were married in 1883. It is mentioned that Frank ZALEWSKI resided in nearby Goczałki, Grudziądz County at the time. His younger brother, Jacob, was also noted as residing here when he arrived in the US in 1892. 

I haven't been able to find any more records on the ZALEWSKI name in this area, which makes me think they came from elsewhere, but I have no solid leads.

My TROKA ancestors have been traced to Lipusz in Kościerzyna County. The SZULTA lines also trace back to this area.

The GORALSKI and GWIAZDOWSKI lines are somehow connected to the ZALEWSKI family, but I have yet to figure out how. They reside in the same areas in Poland and also settle in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Joseph GORALSKI is constantly mentioned as a godfather and sometimes "next of kin" on ZALEWSKI family documents.
