(moved from the old Gdansk province query board - originally posted on 23 April 1998)
My original family name was Bubrowski. I know the original spelling is Bobrowski. If you can give me any historical information, it would be most appreciated. My dad was born Chester J. Bubrowski on 1/11/1918 and is still alive. His father was Staniswava Bubrowski born in Poland (year unknown) and died in the US in 1930, most likely in Toledo, Ohio, where my father was born. My grandmother's name was Theodora K. Bubrowski (maiden unknown) and was born in Pittsburg in 1883 and died in 1958 (my birth year) at the age of 75. Of the Bobrowski's, this is all I can give. My parents don't talk about it too much. I did find a reference to the Bobrowski's coming from Gdansk province in the Village of Pierszewo (parish Stezyca). I don't think the village had that name any more. I did find a village of Stezyca near the Kartuzy area of Gdansk. That's probably the correct name now. I would appreciate any help anyone can give. Thank you.
