The photo below presents the parents – Walentin and Walentina with their kids. There is no date on the photo but Bronislaus looks very young on it. It could be the year of 1904 or 1905.
Walentin Kubaski (Walenty Kubasik) – a son of Wojciech Kubasik and Małgorzata Kubasik (nee Łebska) born on the 29 August 1859 in Ostrowo (district Inowrocław). He married Walentina Ołtarzewksa. On the beginning they lived in Witkowo but after a while in 1903 they moved to Gnesen (Gniezno) where Walentin had his own bakery. He died on 7 August 1941 in Gniezno.
Walentina Kubasik (nee Ołtarzewska) – a daughter of Jan Ołtarzewski and Elżbiety Ołtarzewskiej (nee Sosnowska) born on 11 January 1863 in Zielątkowo (district Mogilno). She died on 27 March 1940 in Gniezno.
Jerzy Kubasik – the oldest son of Walentin and Walentina. The date and place of birth is not confirmed. Probably it is the same place where Walentin and Walentina got married. Exploration is still in progress…
Leon Kubasik – born on 29 July 1888 in Witkowo. Baptized 31 July same year in Witkowo as well. Leon’s godparents were Jan Ołtarzewski and Helena Konieczyńska. He was a bachelor and lived in Posen (Poznań) where he died on 25 March 1951.
Bronislaus Kubasik – please look into the post Bronislaus Kubasik
Lucyna Kubasik – the oldest daughter in the Kubasik’s family. The date and place of birth is not confirmed. Probably it is the same place where Walentin and Walentina got married and where Jerzy was born. She married Jan Skupin from Poznań. She died in Poznań as well. Exploration is still in progress…
Zofia Kubasik – born on 14 May 1891 in Witkowo. Baptized 28 May same year in Witkowo as well. Zofia’s godparents were Józef Zamiar and Agnieszka Hoheisel. Zofia was old maid she spent whole life in Gniezno. She was a teacher in the Primary School. Died in Gniezno on 3 January 1975.
Maria Kubasik – born on 30 July 1892 in Witkowo. Baptized 14 August same year in Witkowo. Her godparents were Michał Goręski and Marianna Kubasik. Maria was old maid, she lived in Gniezno and there died on 14 February 1957.
Stefania Kubasik – born on 22 December 1893 in Witkowo. Stefania was baptized 1 January 1894 in Witkowo. Her godparents were Jan Kubasik and Zofia Knast. She married Jan Kaczmarek they lived together in Gniezno and there she died.
Marta Kubasik – the younges kid of Walentin and Walentina born on 17 March 1895 in Witkowo. Marta was baptized 31 March same year in Witkowo. Her godparents were Antoni Ołtarzewski and Teresa Bączkowska. Marta was old maid, she lived in Gniezno initially and after that she moved to Grünberg (Zielona Góra) where she died.
There are some sources about another family member – Maksymilian Kubasik but it is not clear if Maskymilian was fourth brother or cousin. In my opinion Maksymilian was a cousin because otherwise he would be with his family on the Family photo. Exploration is still in progress…
According to the address book of Gnesen for years 1903-1904, baker Walentin Kubasik (with his family) lived in Gnesen at Brombergerstrasse 22/23. Also, in the same book a name can be found of the miller Johann Kubasik (Jan Kubasik) living at Cirpingistrasse 10.
Later in 1906-1907 the address book for that period lists both Johann (Jan) and Walentin (Walenty) living at the same address Brombergerstrasse 22/23 (together?) This is only my theory but it seems that Walentin (Walenty) and Johann (Jan) could be brothers! There are very few facts available to me to confirm this:
1. They both had related professions: baker and miller.
2. The name of Godfather of the Walentin’s kids – Bronislaus and Stefania was Jan Kubasik (Johann Kubasik)
3. They lived at the same address!
I’m now looking for information to confirm my theory…
