My grandmother's maiden name was ANDRZYCKI. Her father's name was Johann and her mother's name was Anna nee THORACK. They lived in the Wanne-Eickel, Herne area of Germany. Before that I am linking them to Poland due to the name itself, the fact they were a coal mining family and had ties to Katowice, Poland etc. From there I don't know yet.
The surname is very rare! Not even the honourable Fred Hoffmann, surname expert, could figure it out!
By accident found one Joseph Andrzycki in the Poznan Project marriage database. But it's an isolated tidbit.
I need help! Have you heard of this surname? Have you ever seen it in research pertaining to a Slavik country? Russia? Anything?
Thanks so much, Mona
PS The same is happening for Anna Thorack my great grandmother, very unusual last name...
