Help wanted to locate my grandfather's family from Poland Lubin/Lubosky


 My father died last year without us knowing anything about his father apart from his name ‘Edward Lubin’  born in 1912. I have researched and found that his birth name was Aaron Lubosky and died in Birmingham UK in 1973. His father was called Lewis Lubosky and his mother was Mary Krustonofsky and they came over from Poland.

He married Catherine Williams and had two children Susan S Lubin and Louis Lubin.


This is all the information that I have. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

Try to fill in as much as you can on family members.  Sometimes one has to research indirectly..  I saw your tree on Ancestry and will send some things there..

Per the 1911 census, Lewis and Mary had 3 children:  Philip, Fanny and Rueben.  Both Philip and Fanny were born in Russia.  They were born c. 1900 and 1902 (ages 12 and 9 on the census) respectively.  Ruben was born in England c. 1907.  Therefore they immigrated sometime in the 1902-1907 timeframe.  Again, per the census, Lewis and Mary had been married 12 years (c. 1899).  Mary had borne 5 living children w/ 3 alive in 1911.  Given that Philip was b.c. 1900 and Fanny b.c. 1902 w/ a gap between them and Reuben b.c. 1907, it is likely that the 2 dead children were born in the 1903-1906 timeframe. Look for birth/death records to fill in the blanks and confirm Lewis and Mary's names. 
The census shows that Lewis was not naturalized.  It might be worth while to look for naturalization after 1911 census.  If he wasn't naturalized, look for naturalization for Philiip.
Try to determine if Lewis changed his surname to Lubin.  When did Aaron/Edward change his name?  Since Aaron/Edward named his son Louis it is likely Lewis Lubosky had died.  The date of son Louis' birth will help narrow the timeframe on Lewis' life.  That could help you find a death record for him.  Just look for Lubin/Lubosky and allow for variations in spelling of Lubosky.

Hi Liza,

My family name is Lubotsky. Many of the earliest records of Lubotsky/Lubotzky/Lubocki that I've found were located in Lithuania, esp. Vidzy, in the1811 Revision List. Later in the 19th century you can find records in other countries. Mine ancestors likely moved from Lithuania to what is now Belarus, before moving to the United States. Not sure if this will be helpful to you, but happy to chat more.

In researching the All Lithuania database database I have had reinforced not to stick with exact spelling.  For example similar to Lubotsky I have found Lubetzky and Lubetkin in  my research.  Also surname suffixes can change from record to record.  For example *sky  changing to *aite.
