Hi

I'm trying to find my roots. There's so many discrepancies and hidden details about my roots from my Grandparents and Mother, who are all deceased.

I'm looking to find anyone who may know the last name of Whytick (I'm really not sure of the spelling). I figure - from sporadic conversations that my grandmother may have moved to Canada in the 20's or maybe a bit earlier - around WW1.

If anyone on this forum has heard of the this surname or know someone in Poland who has it could you let me know?

Further, I am researching if I'm actually of Jewish descent, as well?

Anyone with information on this last name would be greatly appreciated. I realize it's not much to work with but I have to start somewhere.

I don't have any family left that I know of. I would also like to know my roots and where and who I came from.

Thank you

Alanna

It doesn't look Polish at all (nor Jewish). You should check the exact spelling first.

Maybe it's Witek?

You might have solved that one.

It could have also been Wytyk (some 100 users). Without anything to go on, it's just one big guessing game.

Merged thread:
looking for any info on the surname sounding like Whityck

I am searching for any information I can gather with respect to the surnames as follows:

Whytick or Whityck: first name of Peter Sr.
Bratass: first name: Ksenia

I have recently learned that my grandparents moved from Poland between the years of 1910 to 1920. Unfortunately, I don't know the towns they came from or any other information. I also have reason to believe we are Jewish.

If anyone knows any information or can lead me in the direction to further my investigation I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You

Witczyk is Polish name and it is similar to Whytick/Wityk

Hello, my surname is Wityk I'm first generation canadian, my family came from what used to be part of Poland and now is Ukraine, it was called Gallicia, after world war 2 my family was displaced to settle dolno slonsk and Gurowo/ bartoszcze. I know quite a bit of history of the family at least as far as great great grandparents go. And I'm sure there is more wityks in argentina, Alberta and pszemisl in Poland.


Cheers Paul
