My grandmother Odaria Petryszyn was born in Ottynia Ukraine, 1 February 1940. I do not have her birth certificate only marriage certificate to my grandfather Antoni Ignatowicz. They married in Swidnica Poland.
I would like to get access to her birth certificate to trace back her family. She did not grow up around her parents, as her mother gave her to my grandmothers aunt to be brought up by her.
From what I read on the certificate of hers which I have, her mother’s name was Izydora Duniec, and father Jan Petryszyn. I have no extra information about them, but that’s is something I’m very much interested in finding in order to begin tracing my family history back even further as well as get information on them.
My grandmothers aunt who raised her, was Anna Petryszyn, and she married Mieczyslaw Drwiega. Although my family did always believe that her surname was Duniec and that she was the sister of my great grandmother, rather than my great grandfather. Although I did find a certificate of hers once where I remember clearly seeing her surname being Petryszyn.
I would like to find out more about each of these people I listed as well as find their birth / marriage / death certificates also.
I believe they were all born in Ukraine, although my grandmother and her aunt immigrated to Poland when my grandmother was little. I do not know what happened to her birth parents. Somewhere in the family I heard that her father died during the Second World War, which resulted in her mother giving her up to her aunt, and then her mother married a German man. Although these are not facts, but just stories told within the family.
