In August, Randy Seaver created an informative Saturday Night Genealogical Fun (SNGF) challenge to name our sixteen great-great grandparents, provide their pertinent dates and locations, and calculate one’s ethnic background. My response to his challenge was a post called Sweet Sixteen: My Great-Great Grandparents. But I couldn’t name all sixteen. In my post, I lamented the fact that certain branches on my family tree were little more than twigs. In particular, my patrilineal line had three unknowns and a maybe.
Today, I know their names.
Thanks to my Piontkowski (Piątkowski) great-grandparents’ marriage record, I can add names to the first four slots of my Sweet Sixteen list, making it much, much sweeter. They are:
- Stanisław Piątkowski (ahnentafel#16)
- Apolonia Konopka (ahnentafel#17)
- Jan Kiziewieter (possibly misspelled on the record; later known as Kizoweter) (ahnentafel#18)
- Marianna Ostał (ahnentafel#19)
More to come on the record itself and its details once I get a copy. Many thanks to Zenon Znamirowski of Polish Origins™ for finding this for me! (You’ll also be hearing more about Polish Origins™ soon when I have a special interview with Zenon – stay tuned!)
