Hello to all readers. I have been trying to find family genealogy for several years now, and no matter how many times I restart I manage to hit a roadblock on my dad’s side immediately. I am here asking for any help that might be able to be offered.
My father’s name was Eugene (Eugeniusz on a ship manifest I found) Stachurski. He was born in a DP Camp in Augustdorf Germany July 10, 1949. He passed away December 17, 2000 in Ohio. He did get naturalized in Cleveland Ohio but I cannot find his papers online for that on ancestry and I am not sure which year.
My baba’s name (his mom) was Tatjana Stachurski. Some US documents here also have her as “Tanya”. Her maiden name is different on different documents I have been able to find here but ranges from “Condritiva” on her death records to “Kondratjewa” on my father’s baptism papers. According to any US documents I found, she was born January 3, 1911 (I believe somewhere in Russia). She passed away March 28, 1997 also in Ohio.
My Jaja’s (his father) name was Ignacy Stachurski. According to records I have found here, he was born March 25, 1903 (somewhere in Poland. I have heard my mom mention “Lutz” and my brain translates that to “Lodz” so maybe he has lived there or was born there). He passed away October of 1975, also in Ohio. Ignacy was naturalized in Cleveland OH August 26, 1965 and I found a copy of a small card in records that has his Alien ID number.
I know that my dad has brothers. I have an Uncle Victor (Wiktor on ship manifest), an Uncle Jesse (Zdislaw on ship manifest), and an Uncle Raymond (who was born in the US) all with the surmane Stachurski. I know that they boarded a ship called the USNS General RM Blatchford in Bemerhaven Germany to come to the US. I am confused by their ship manifests because according to records, they landed in Boston Massachusetts October 20, 1951 and then they landed in New York (assuming Ellis Island but I cant find any record on the Ellis Island website) October 29, 1951. This is where all trails stop and I cannot get any further back in my father’s timeline. I cannot find any marriage records, church records, baptism records (my mom has a copy she is not ready to relinquish yet but will rell me what is on it if I ask and she feels like digging it out to tell me), birth records through a church for either grand parent, or any papers from their DP camp experience. I am hoping to find any help I can to figure it out and get past this brick wall. Thank you so much in advance for any offered assistance!
