Looking for Eastern European village

Post by mkaykrista » 11 Jun 2019, 04:28

I recently found my great-great grandfather Maxim Huzÿ's draft registration card, where it lists his place of birth beyond the usual Galicia, Austria on his other documents. However, when I search for Lisiecyine, all that comes up is a Canadian musician :?

Does anyone know where Lisiecyine is located, or how it's supposed to be spelt? I'm assuming the actual name is spelt quite differently than what is shown on the registration card, and maybe was spelt as it is pronounced.

My great-great grandmother, Mary Kruk Huzÿ, was born near Ternopil, Ukraine and immigrated to Ansonia, CT as did Maxim. So there may be a chance Lisiecyine is near Ternopil? The registration card says Austria, but I can't confirm he was actually from there.

Hi,
I believe that the right old name was Lisiczynce or Lisiczync in Poland(at time of Austrian empire) what is the nametown currently I don't know…

Thank you! When looking up your suggestions, I also found Leszczyna. Could this be it?

is Lisiczyn in Polonia.

Thank you, I will definitely look into these names. Researching Italian ancestry is a piece of cake compared to searching for my Eastern European relatives!

I suspect it may be Leszczyny, Gorlice County, Poland. The name may also be Hazyj (Polish spelling) than sometimes Americanized to Guzy - which is in my family tree.

There are also multiple Leszczyny location in Poland (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leszczyny)

I also see another using the Galician Town Locator (https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/) on the Ukraine border.

Needs to find the arrival and to see the surname spelling and birthplace.. then to check all people having same name spell and the birthplace wrote on the ship's manifest.. and to understand the more probable spell. and then just finding the Birth record it is possible ato be sure abt the success..

Good morning. I have the assumed date range of his immigration being between 1902-1907. He definitely arrived prior to 1910 as his first son was born in December 1911 in Ansonia, Connecticut.

Any suggestions for effectively searching for him in ship manifests?

I searched and I found one seemed probable, for the name soundex, but the Birth place is no the same…

First Name : Makinn
Last Name : Hozij
Nationality : Austria, Polish
Last Place of Residence : Sisagora, Austria
Date of Arrival : December 5th, 1909
Age at Arrival : 25y
Gender : Male
Marital Status : Single
Ship of Travel : Amerika
Port of Departure : Hamburg
Manifest Line Number : 0002

https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/EID ... e=manifest
the birthpace right spelling is Łysa Góra.. so don't match…
Regards,
suanj

Wow, that one seems probable. I wish I could make out the names of the person from last country/going to. I know his father's name was Gregory and mother was Irene.
