Buzonas - Lipczyński Family


A note on the spelling and pronunciation of the name Lepchinsky, Lipchinski, Leptinsky, Lipcryeiska, Lipkinsky, Lipkinsy, Leptunsky or other variations. Which spelling is correct? They are all incorrect! The correct Polish spelling is Lipczyński and is pronounced approximately as "Lip-chin-ski" with the emphasis on the "chin" syllable and the "n" soft.

How do I know? Because Polish is a phonetic language. If you spell it, the pronunciation follows and if you say it, the spelling follows. Children do not study spelling in Poland since there is no need for it! The various spellings originated in America and are useful only to trace the various families that adopted the different spellings.

The correct spelling is confirmed on the wedding certificate of Michael Lipczyński on 19 February 1917 at the Transfiguration Roman Catholic Polish Church by Father Michael Kozlowski. A Polish Priest would insist on a correct spelling of Polish names and did so in this case. Unfortunately the hand writing is in the European style so that the "czy" in Lipczyński may not be clear for Americans.

The family came from the Polish town of Wierzchoslawice near Tarnow. To my knowledge no one has searched the church birth/death/marriage records but they have survived and presumably have more information on the family.
