Our Family too pronounced the Zakrzewski name the same way. Zok-Shhev-ski
I'm not sure when My Great grandfather arrived in Detroit, Mi. ,But my grandma Wanda Zakrzewski was the first born June 1906. I was told Joseph and Wife Helen Rutkowski Zakrzewski came straight to Detroit.Also there is a possability they has a child younger than my Grandma Wanda, a girl that was born/died as an infant in Poland.??? Other family members say No!
As for the name change,Saksewski. I believe the remaining Great Uncle thinks the change was never legally changed. I'm not sure how to look into that.On my oldest Uncles paper work, the name appeares in both spellings, just different documents.
I heard the change was due to famimly belonged to a Polish gang like the Mofia. Who Knows!! Other family say story is way off the wall. Too many stories not to be something to it. Great grandfather Joseph owned a Tailor/ dry Cleaners business in Detroit. Was this a cover-up for his "Other" life????
All I know it's a mystery
Joseph's oldest son John deserted his wife and 2 young sons here in Michigan and went off to Chicago with a woman he met in Detroit. I here he had at least 2 more children with her. Don't know if they even carry the Zakrzewski name.
My Great Uncle Joe had told me he thought the Zakrzewski family came from Turan Poland.??
