Preface

This family is ancestral to the widow Mariya (Sołonynka) Warowy, who followed her married daughter Antonina (Warowy) Demchuk to Manitoba in 1904, and died there in 1914. Her unusually informative, if somewhat garbled, death record supplies clues enabling her origins to be found. These lay, on both sides, at Tsyhany [Цигани], in the parish of Skala, district of Borshchiv, Ternopil’, Galicia, Ukraine. Although the present account is still quite skeletal, and some of the readings of surnames uncertain, we publish it in the hope that it may lead to fuller knowledge of Mariya and her family. Because other persons, including Chris Bostwick, are already researching the Bazczak family, we do not propose to publish a detailed account on this site, and we focus on the direct line of Agneta Bazczak, wife of Prokop Sołonynka (line I), the direct line of Chris Bostwick (line II), and the direct Bazczak line of the descendants of Paul Demchuk, of Sifton, Manitoba (line III).

This page relies to an even greater degree than usual on the efforts of others, and thanks are due to the following persons for assistance:

  • Chris Bostwick, a Baszczak descendant, for background information on the Baszczak family.
  • Gary Duschl (not a Baszczak descendant), author of the Kuzyk Family Tree at MyHeritage.com, who has generously shared his extensive researches in the Tsyhany church registers, and offered many helpful suggestions as to their interpretation.

An asociated page on this website is our Ancestor table of the children of Leo James Lubiniecki and Alma Cecilia Reagan.


I. The line of Agneta Bazczak, wife of Prokop Sołonynka

Adalbert Baszczak Constantia Hutnik Anton Panagabko Agneta ____
Luca Bazczak Francisca Panagabka
Agneta Baszczak

Apollonia Baszczakowa was born 1726-27 (aged 60 in 1787), died 14 April 1787 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, aged 60 years, and was buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[1] Assuming her burial was recorded under her married surname, she was perhaps the mother of:

  1. Adalbert Baszczak, born about 1758, who died in house no. 52, Tsyhany; see 1 below.
  2. Michael Bazczak, born 1763-64, died 2 April 1843 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, aged 79 years, leaving a wife (as he is called viduus in the record), and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[2]
  3. (?) Matheus Baszczak, born 1776-77, died 12 March 1797 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, who as “Matheus filius Michaeli Baszczak” was buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[3] He probably belongs somewhere in this family, but Apollonia would have been about 50 years of age at his birth.

1. Adalbert Baszczak, of Tsyhany, born about 1758, died 24 April 1809 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, aged 50 years, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites at Tsyhany.[4] He is named as Adalbertus Baszczak in the baptismal record of his son Luca, and as Adalbertus Bazczak in the marriage record of the same son. He married by 1792, Constantia/Constantina Hutnik, born about 1758-59, died 5 June 1829, aged 70, and buried at Tsyhany as “Constantia, Adalberti Bazczak vidua.” The baptismal records of several of her children clearly attest to her surname of Hutnik, but the evidence for the name of her father is ambiguous. She is called “Constantia de Aldaberto Hutnik” in the baptismal record of her son Michael (1789), which would seemingly imply that her father’s name was Adalbert; however she is called Constantia Ludivikowa in the baptismal record of her daughter Anna (1799). She was living in house no. 52, Tsyhany, at the time of her death.[5] Known issue:[6]

  1. Matheas Baszczak, born 13 September 1787, baptized in house no. 52, Tsyhany, as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak and “Constantia de Hutnik nata.”
  2. Michael Baszczak, born 20 September 1789, baptized as a child of Adalber… [writing faded] and “Constantia de Aldaberto Hutnik.” he married (1) Xena Galaj, daughter of Wasyl Galaj and Sophia ____, who are named in the baptismal record of her son Mathias. He married (2) 27 February 1832 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[7] Marianna Paskaluw, born 1797-98 (aged 34 in 1832), daughter of Laurent Paskaluw and Helena ____. The marriage record understates his age as 36. Known issue (by first wife):
    1. Mathias Baszczak, born 5 February 1827, baptized as Mathias, son of “Michael, Adalberti et Constantiæ Basczak filius” and “Xena, Basilii et Sophiæ Galajow [genitive plural of Galaj] filia.”
  3. 2Luca Baszczak, born 26 September 1792, baptized in the Roman Catholic church, Tsyhany, as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak, of house no. 52, and Constantina Hutnik.
  4. Marianna Baszczak, born 3 August 1796, baptized in house no. 52, Tsyhany, as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak and “Constantia nata de Hutnik.” she married 28 January 1816 at Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[8] Laurent Panagabko, born 1789-90 (by calculation), son of Paul Panagabko. Their marriage record names them as “Marianna, Adalberti Bazczak,” aged 18 years (sic), and “Laurentius, Pauli Pomagabko [sic] filius,” aged 26 years. Marianna’s younger sister Francisca also married a Panagabko.
  5. Anna Baszczak, born 21 July 1799, baptized in house no. 52, Tsyhany, as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak and Constantia Ludivikowa.
  6. Nicolaus Baszczak, born 16 September 1802; baptismal record difficult to read but parents’ first names can be discerned as Adalbertus and Constantia, died [unmarried] 9 February 1838 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, aged 36 [actually 35] years, and buried as “Nicolaus, Adalberti et Constantiæ Bazczak filius.”[9]
  7. Francisca Baszczak, born 26 July 1806, baptized as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak and Constantia [no surname], alive in 1836. She married (possibly as his second wife) 22 May 1825 in house no. 30, by Roman Catholic rites,[10] Michael Panagabko, born 1788-89 (by calculation), alive in 1836, son of Paulus Panagabko and Marianna ____. Their marriage record names them as “Michael, Pauli et Mariannæ Panagabko,” aged 36 years, and “Francisca, Adalberti et Constantia[e] Bazczakuw [a genitive plural of Bazczak],” aged 19 years. We have not securely identified this man, but he may have been the widower of Marianna Panagabka, born 6 August 1795, daughter of Anton Panagabko and Rosalia Cycaj. Only known child:
    1. Josephus Panagabko, born 23 [? date falls in shadow] March 1836 in house no. 30 [?], Tsyhany, baptized as Josephus, son of “Michael, Pauli et Marian[n]æ Panagabkowych [genitive plural of Panagabko] filius” and ”Francisca, Adalberti et Constantiæ Bazczakowych [genitive plural of Bazczak] filia.”[11]

2. Luca Baszczak, of Tsyhany, was born 26 September 1792 (per baptismal record), was baptized in the Roman Catholic church, Tsyhany, as a child of Adalbertus Baszczak (sic), of house no. 52, and Constantina Hutnik,[12] died 25 January 1833, and was buried at Tsyhany.[13] Apart from in the record of his baptism, his surname usually appears as Bazczak. As Luca Bazczak, aged 25 (sic), son of Adalbertus (mother not named), he married 6 February 1820 at Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[14] Francisca Panagabka, born probably in 1800 (aged 19 at her marriage, 31 in at her death), died 29 August 1831, aged 31, during a cholera epidemic in which eight other people died on the same day, and buried at Tsyhany as “Francisca, Lucæ Bazczak uxor,”[15] daughter of Anton Panagabka and Agnes ____. Her first name is given in the marriage record of her daughter Agneta, and her marriage record names her parents as Antonius Panagabko and Agneta ____. Their issue included:

3. Agneta Baszczak, daughter of Luca Bazczak and Francisca Panagabka, was born 1822-23, died 13 March 1849 in house no. 53, Tsyhany, and was buried according to Roman Catholic rites at Tsyhany as “Agnes, Martini Latusz uxor,” aged 25 years [sic].[16]. She married (1) 3 November 1839 in house no. 41, Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[17] Prokop Sołonynka born 1820-21, and died 25 July 1844, the record stating his age as 25 years although he was probably even younger,[18] son of Jacob Sołonynka and Marianna Szewcuza (? name uncertain) of Tsyhany. The record of their marriage gives the names of the parties as “Procopius, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filius,” of house no. 41, Tsyhany, aged 18, and “Agnes, Lucæ Bazczak et Franciscæ filia,” aged 16. Agneta is similarly described, but with her age given as 23 (sic), when she married (2) 4 November 1844 in house no. 4, Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[19] to Martin Latusz, aged 22 years, son of Andrea Latusz “de Muszkat” and Teresia ____. Martin Latusz subsequently married by 1853, Magdalena Kubin, by whom he had at least two daughters: Josepha, who died 21 November 1854 in house no. 52, aged 1 year, and Anastasia, who died 29 December 1862 in house no. 52, aged ¾ year.[20]
    For Agneta’s issue by her first husband see under Sołonynka. By Martin Latusz she was mother of:

  1. Nicolaus Latusz, born 6 December 1845 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day by Catholic rites as a child of “Martinus, Andreæ et Teressæ Latusz filius” and “Agnes, Lucæ et Mariannæ Bazczak filia.”[21] He married 16 April 1871 in house no. 10, by Roman Catholic rites,[22] Anna Kubin, daughter of Joseph Kubin and Catharina ____. The marriage record calls them “Nicolaus, Martini et Agnetis Latusz,” aged 27 years, and “Francisca, Josephi et Catharinæ Kubin filia,” aged 16 years. It is not known whether Anna was related to Nicolaus’s stepmother, Magdalena Kubin. Known issue:
    1. Michalina Latusz, born 15 October 1877 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic church as Michalina, daughter of “Nicolaus, Martini Latusz et Magdalena[e] [an error for Agnetis]” and “Anna, Josephi Kubin et Catharina[e].”[23]

Michael Baszczak Marianna Podgurska Sebastian Panagabko Marianna Rumianska
Adalbert Baszczak Anna Panagabka
Josef Baszczak

1. Josef Baszczak, of house no. 8, Tsyhany, was born say 1760, and was still alive in 1790. He married by 1783, Rosalia ____. Known issue:

  1. 2Michael Baszczak, born 1783-84 (aged 22 in 1806).
  2. Francisca Baszczak, born 16 September 1787, died by 6 March 1790, when another daughter was given the same name; possibly she is the “Francisca filia Josephi Baszczak” who died 22 October 1787 aged “h. D. 5”?
  3. Marianna Baszczak, born 1 November 1788.
  4. Francisca Baszczak, born 6 March 1790 in house no. 8, Tsyhany.

2. Michael Baszczak, born 1783-84 (aged 22 in 1806), probably the “Michael Baszczak, agricola, uxoratus” who died 23 January 1839 in house no. 8, Tsyhany, aged 59 years, although the implied date of birth is not in good agreement with that indicated in his marriage record.[30] He married 2 March 1806 at Tsyhany (no house number indicated), by Roman Catholic rites,[31] Marianna Podgurska, baptized 1 June 1787 in the Roman Catholic church, Tsyhany, as a daughter of Antonius Podgurski and Marianna, daughter of Jacobus Kryk [sic; actually Krzynow], with godfather Stephanus Parcey.[32] Their marriage record names them as “Michael, Josephi Baszczak filius,” aged 22, and “Marianna, Antonii Podgurski filia,” aged 17. This is supported by his description as “Michael, Josephi et Rosaliæ Bazczakowych [genitive plural of Bazczak]” in the baptismal record of their son Martin (1828), and her father’s patronymic of Dawiduw is revealed by the baptismal record of her daughter Catharina.

  5. Josef Bazczak, born 27 November 1889 in house no. 70, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic church as Josefus, son of “Josefus, Adalberti Bazczak et Annæ” and “Anastasia, Michaelis Bujar et Mariæ [an error for Agnetis] filia,” died 7 January 1891.[52]

III. The Bazczak ancestry of the children of Paul Demchuk, of Sifton, Manitoba

Kazimierz Krzyskow Catharina ____ Josef Bazczak Anna ____
Anton Krzyskow Anna Bazczak
Agnes Krzyskow

1. Josef Bazczak, married Anna ____. Their names are known from the marriage record of their granddaughter, Agnes Krzyskow. Their issue included:

2. Anna Bazczak, married before 1858, Anton Krzyskow, of Tsyhany, son of Kazimierz Krzyskow and Catharina ____. Their names are known from the marriage record of their daughter Agnes. Their issue included:

  1. 3Agnes Krzyskow, born 21 April 1858, and baptized the same day at Tsyhany as a daughter of Antonius Krzyskow (son of Casimirus Krzyskow and Catharina ____) and Anna Bazczak (daughter of Josephus Bazczak and Anna ____),[53]

3. Agnes Krzyskow, daughter of Anton Krzyskow and Anna Bazczak, was born 21 April 1858, was baptized the same day at Tsyhany, and was certainly alive in March 1892, but died before 1910. The description of this woman in the 1892 baptismal record of her daughter Agnes agrees with that in her own marriage record.[54] The fact that her son Demetrius P. Demchuk, born in 1895, calls her “Yagna Baschuk,” would seem to reflect a confusion between Agnes and her own mother, suggesting the possibility that Anna (Bazczak) Krzyskow may have outlived Agnes and helped raise Agnes’s children.[55] Agnes married (as his first wife) 21 October 1875 in house no. 48, Tsyhany, according to Catholic rites,[56] Paul Demchuk, of Sifton, Manitoba, born July 1852 at Tsyhany, died 30 October 1920,[57] son of Fedor Demchuk, of Tsyhany, and Mariya Panagabka. Their marriage record describes them as “Paulus, Theodori et Mariæ Demczuk filius,” aged 23 years, and “Agnes, Antonii et Annæ Krzyskow [filia],” aged 17 years. Paul Demchuk and Agnes Krzyskow had seven surviving children, all born at Tsyhany. Paul Demchuk married (2) before 1910, Anna ____, alive in 1910, without further issue.

32Anton Podgurski, aged 20 years [thus born 1764-65], and Marianna “Krzynowna,” aged 18 years, were married on 20 November 1785 in house no. 41, Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites. “Marianna, Antonii Podgurski uxor” died 18 August 1831 at house no. 141, Tsyhany, in a cholera epidemic, reportedly aged 70 years but surely an exaggeration as this is six years older than suggested by her marriage record. Normally one would readily conclude that he was the “Antonius Podgurski, agricola uxoratus” who died 28 or 30 January 1841 (the record gives his death on the 30th and burial on the 28th!) in house no. 141, Tsyhany, aged 76 years, implying a date of birth of 1764-65 (a perfect match), and that as he is designated a married man (uxoratus) rather than a widower (viduus), he had remarried after Marianna’s death. But either by striking coincidence or extraordinary confusion, an “Antonius Gurski [sic] uxoratus” is recorded as dying 9 October 1844 in the same house no. 141, Tsyhany, at the age of 78 years, implying an almost identical date of birth of 1765-66.
