Location of Dudynce, sometimes spelled Dudynci: Map coordinates are 4933 2205. Dudynci is located near the town of Sanok (now in southeastern Poland). Please notice that my ancestral villages are located near the towns of Dukla, Sanok (now in southeastern Poland) and Svidnik (in northeastern Slovakia). These villages form a triangle whose corners are about 30 miles apart, yet my grandparents who emigrated from those areas between 1890 and 1910 met and married in the USA.


Surnames from this village in my ancestry are: Kotlarz/Kotlar, Wdowiak, Warcholyk, Juszczyk, Pastuszak, Mediuch, Kocan, Jacubowski, Maczuzak, Kolodiej Greek Catholic church records for this village have been microfilmed and are available at the FHL in your area(film #0766036, parish of Pielnia).

My maternal grandmother, Anna Kotlar (b. 1893) emigrated as a single woman from Dudynce in 1910 and settled in Wilkes-Barre PA. Several cousins and a half-brother had preceded her and a sister joined her a year later.

I have reviewed Dudynce’s Greek Catholic Church birth records (Pielnia parish) and arranged them by house number so one can identify the families that simultaneously occupied a house. See the index on my front page.

In 2010 a survey of the village Greek Catholic cemetery was done. Click here to see the list of souls.
