  1. Hello!

    How, may I ask, did you come to have a copy of your ancestor’s marriage record?

    My paternal grandmother was also from Kazimierz Biskupi, and after emigrating to the US, ended up living in Lorain, Ohio, where she raised her family (including my father). Her maiden name was Stanislawa (Stella) Rybacki. Her husband (my grandfather) was Antoni Lenard (or Leonard).

    They were among the founding families of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church on 28th Street, and they lived just a few blocks east of there, on Denver Avenue. They died in Lorain and are buried in Calvary Cemetery, probably not too far from your family.

    I’ve been trying to find more information about Antoni and Stella, but Ancestry.com has yielded only a few bits and pieces, all from their time in the United States. So far, I have not been able to find anything about their early lives in Poland or about the names of their parents. Something like Polish marriage records might fill in some of those blanks, which is what prompted my initial question.

    My own parents, Theodore and Antoinette (nee Carson) Leonard, are no longer with us, and all their siblings have died as well, so I don’t have a lot of first-person accounts to rely upon.

    Do you have any suggestions for me? I’d appreciate any guidance.

    Many thanks!

    • Hi Mary Ann, thank you so much for your message. Yes, I have a couple of suggestions. 1) Join this Facebook Group if you haven’t already.:

      Julie Roberts Szczepankiewicz, the creator and admin. of this Facebook Group has also helped me over the years.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      2) Hire a Professional:

      Back in 2015 I did hire a professional genealogist based in Poland who did locate this marriage record. I have not contacted her since then so I do not know if she is still at this contact information.

      My mother’s sister, Mary Zagorsky Stitak, was a long time parishioner of St. Stanislaus Church in Lorain. I am also a Lorainite. Yes, most of my mother’s family (Zagorsky and Szczepankiewicz) are buried at Calvary Cemetery in Lorain. My mother and father are buried at Elmwood Cemetery across the street.

      Please let me know how you do with your research.

      • Thank you for replying! I appreciate your suggestions. I’ll look into them. Both seem like good options.

        All the best,
        Mary Ann
