My great grandfather's name is Adolf Lorenc (has been Lorenz since arriving in the US). He was born c. 1867. He had a brother Jan and two sisters, Marta & Maryla. Their parents' names were Jan Lorenc and Francziska Bothe. The family resided north of Warsaw around the town of Gostynin.

Adolf arrived in the US (Ellis Island) on April 11, 1903 on the steamer Bulgaria (Hamburg line). The ships manifest for Adolf's arrival says that he was en route to friends (I can't make out the name) in Troy, NY. He was followed two years later by his wife and four children. They resided in the Newark NJ area.

Family stories report that Adolf's brother, Jan, also came to the US. They did not get along and so parted ways. Jan is reported to have left for Albany NY.

Does any of this connect with your family?

I am interested in the Lorenc name. My family is from Poland. However, I see that some people with the last name Lorenc has Hungarian roots. Can someone figure this out for me? My grandfather's name is Feliks Lorenc. He is from Powiatsanok, Jasliska, Poland. He was born in 1878. He came to the U.S. circa 1908-1913. If anyone has any info on this, please e-mail me.

My husband's grandparent came from Lezany in the 1890's and settled in Simpson PA, but I do know that some moved to the Greensburg/ Uniontown PA area. I wonder how many people from that area went to PA, think they were encouraged to move? I tried to contact the local Catholic church many years ago but never any answer.

So you want to know about Uchics and Jurczaks...
My grandfather, Martin S. Jurczak, arrived in Monongah, WV, from Poland around 1906. He was a little boy, about 6 years old. His legal name became Uchic as a result of a mispelling on his working papers; the family never changed it. He and my Grandmother, Katherine (2nd generation Polish American) resettled in Detroit, MI, in the 1920s and had two children, Mary Ellen and Martin Timothy.
