My maternal family name carries Bałuk. My great-grandfather Wojciech Bałuk (d. 1913), was a shoemaker in Myślenice k / Krakow. His wife Maria of Miners died in 1938 Their son, Stefan, held the office of mayor Myślenice after the war. I know the parents' names Wojciech - John and Helen from Góralik. The family probably derives from Hungary. Apparently they were related to Leon Bałuk, who had a bakery in Kraków. Tanning and was a senior bakers whites in Krakow. Some of the relatives also show a kinship with Michael Balucki, positivist writer, but I could not confirm this. Part of the family Bałuk (Wojciech sons) went to Warsaw and there shared the fate of thousands of Poles during the Uprising. I traced this name in various parts of the Polish, also in Drohobych.
