This is post 1 of the 2018 #52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge
To blog more consistently in 2018, I am undertaking the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge again. The #52Ancestors Challenge is where a group of us can blog about our ancestors, collateral relatives, discoveries, etc., for each week of the year. To learn more about the challenge or if you are interesting in joining, visit Amy Johnson Crow’s site at Amy’s website.
Revisiting the Lipinski Family
During the 2014 Edition of the 52 Ancestors Challenge, I wrote about Aleksandra Lipinska. Aleksandra is the wife of my second Great Uncle Ignacy Borucki. Over the New Year’s weekend, I went squirreling through the Polish genealogy website, Geneteka, to look a little closer at the Lipinski family.
Prior research of Ignacy and Aleksandra’s marriage record provided the names of Aleksandra’s parents, Jan Lipinski and Anna Czaplinska. My search in 2014 using the parent’s names in the Maków County, marriage records identified three siblings of Aleksandra. My recent foray led to the discovery of additional records of birth, marriages, deaths related to the Lipinski’s. I also found another sibling to Aleksandra, a brother named Antoni Lipinski, not previously known.
In 1920, Antoni Lipinski married Marianna Budna in Krasnosielc-Sielc, Poland. Most likely, this is a second marriage from Antoni as he was born in 1865 and presumably had an earlier marriage. I will have to give this Marianna Budna, a nickname to distinguish her from my Great Grandmother, Marianna (Borucki) Budny (Budna).
There are additional Geneteka records that provide clues to Jan Lipinski’s and Anna Czaplinska’s , siblings, parents and grandparents. Some Geneteka records are indexed only with no scan of the record to view. Gratefully, FamilySearch.org has microfilmed the parish records for Krasnosielc-Sielc. An image of Jan and Anna’s marriage record available at FamilySearch, lists their parents’ names. With Jan’s parents’ names, I located siblings, and his grandparents names, Gotlib/Gotleb Lipinski and Katarzyna Tomaszewska. It appears that I will be able to take at least one of my Polish collateral line back to the late 1700’s. Quite a feat for me, as my own direct Budny line only goes back to 1898.
Next week’s #52Ancestors prompt is “favorite photo.” Can I pick out a favorite photo to blog about? I do have an proclamation I want to share about preserving photos.
