Renkiewicz memorials (Michigan)

I have two more memorials for a Kimberly J. Renkiewicz (18331745) as well as a Linda (52905993). I don't know who their parents were/are and would like to update that info on Find A Grave. Can you please email me that data and if you like I will transfer these two memorials to you?

Ruth Renkiewicz
Hello John
Just a heads up that Ruth's death was actually on George Lake in New York. I see the death says, Whitmore Lake where she was from.

Wladyslaw J Renkiewicz (RENKIE)

Today I discovered some new info via the recent upload to Ancestry on SS. I have a great Uncle named Wladyslaw RYMKIEWICZ who married a Magdalena Klusak and they lived in Brudzew, Poland. They had a son named WLADYSLAW who apparently came to the USA as I found him in this new data base on Ancestry. Here is the info:

Wladyslaw Jazef Renkiewicz
[Walter J Renkie]
SSN: 019260583
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birth Date: 22 Apr 1912
Birth Place: Brudzew, Poland
Father Name: Walter Renkiewicz
Mother Name: Magdelina Klusock
Death Date: 24 Feb 1994
Type of Claim: Original SSN.
Notes: Nov 1950: Name listed as WLADYSLAW JAZEF RENKIEWICZ; Feb 1962: Name listed as WALTER J RENKIE
Save Cancel
Source Information U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2015.
Original data: Social Security Applications and Claims, 1936-2007.

I don't know who this Wladyslaw/Walter married and who all were his children at this point or even if it is possible that he is somehow connected to the Renkiewicz clan from Michigan?

But I am going to try and find his Death Certificate if possible. Any comments welcomed email me at


P.S. I have a birth transcription for my Great Uncle Wladyslaw that came from a RC Priest who is now a Pastor here in the USA. This is how I was able to track his son Wlater Jr. from this document.

Joseph Strugalla
Hi -- I just uploaded the photo for Helen Strugalla's headstone. Next to her grave is the headstone for Joseph Strugalla (1914-1979). I took a picture of his headstone too, and can upload it if you create a memorial page for him.

RE: Renkiewicz Lineage

Ok, to first answer your questions, Chris & Gale Renkiewicz are from Florida now and Chris's father was Anthony A. Renkiewicz Jr., Anthony Jr. as you know was born to Anthony Sr. and Stella Wszolek. Anthony Sr. is the son of frank Ben Renkiewicz. Frank is the son of JAN RENKIEWICZ and Ludwika and I have a marriage document on this patriarch which shows the marriage. I have been tracking my family genealogy for 20+ years now. So, if you like email me at and I will share with you what I have accumulated over the years. Recently I have been adding pics to the Find A Grave site on the Renkiewicz's from MI. How are you connected to them? I also have a typed decendancy list from Gale/Chris in addition to a memorial type sent to be by Find A Grave member Jim Shearer who BTW has posted many of the memorials related to the Renkiewicz's from MI like the Smolarz's and the Dzwick's.

I would like to know if you can assit me at all concerning this family lineage as I have hired a private researcher by the name of Michal Marcinak of PolGen in Warsaw and have a very extensive descendany list which I have published online. I am trying to findout where this patriarch JAN RENKIEWICZ emigrated into the U.S. and where he was from in Poland and who his parents were as this way I maybe able to connect these families together. I have been in touch with someone from Poland directly related to the Renkiewicz's from MI and we have been corresponding via emails and letters. This family of RENKIEWICZ/RYNKIEWICZ's hails from KRASNOPOL, POLAND.

Please stay in touch and thank you for contacting me.

P.S. The spelling of my surname in Poland is as your surname is spelled "RENKIEWICZ"
