Famous citizen of Argentina JORDAN CZESLAW WYSOCKI / JORDAN SZCZĘSŁAW WYSOCKI – his life in Poland, his and his family’s first documents found!

To correct the data: The real date of birth of Jordan Czesław Wysocki is not 1839 (given in encyclopedias) but 1837, his names are not Jordan Czesław, but Jordan Szczęsław, and finally his father’s name is not August, but Augustyn – from a Latin source.

Below I present scans of the original entry of his birth from Poland, as well as the entry of the birth of his sister Stanisława Augusta Wysocka

The above entry shows the place of origin of Jordan’s father – Augustine (Augustyn) Piotr Wysocki as the city of Leszno located in the Grand Duchy of Poznań in the 19th century.

So August (yn) Piotr Wysocki was born in Leszno in (around) 1785, and his parents were Walenty Wysocki and Joanna Wysocka née Urbańska.

I am trying to continue my genealogical research on the line of this Wysocki family, this time in the city of Leszno from the 18th century, I will be very grateful for any information about this family.
