There are some photos in a Word document in which I first saved this.
(I should note that when I looked for information on, e.g., FamilySearch, I also kept in mind whether the people in question looked like family members. Of course, I kept locations in mind.). Some come from family members and others come from sources such as FamilySearch.

Families (Some branches of whom later became Anusim during pogroms, etc.):
- Andrulewicz (originally Andrulevic[i]us of Stakliskes. Kohanim)*
- Danilowicz (originally "Danilovich" of Dunilavicy, Belarus. Somehow connected to the Chavusy Daniloviches.)*
- Margevich (in Lithuania in 1818 for Census), Margiewicz, Morgoviciute*
- Czerniecki (originially Chernetski or variants thereof)*
- Gajdosz ^
- * The paternal grandmother of my father's paternal grandfather was "Katarzyna" Danilowiczowna Czerniecka, having become an Anusit in February 1843. She was born in October 1838 to Wojciech (likely originally "Avraham") and Marianna/Maryanna (likely originally "Mariam Hanah") Kruszynska (or Krusinska) Danilowicz (She and her parents were deliberately ambiguous on her baptism and marriage records). She married "Antoni" Czerniecki (a son of "Pawel" and "Dominika" Wierzbinska Czerniecki) in Mackowa Ruda in 1860 and gave her birthdate as 1843 there, and had to swear that she did not sign a "prenuptial agreement" (viz. ketubah). Both were born in Krasne nad Krasnopol. I know of no t'vilah or t'vilah l'Anusim of "Antoni" or his parents, or "Katrarzyna"'s parents.
- *Julian Czerniecki was the paternal grandfather of my paternal grandfather. His parents had, from what I understand, become ba'alim teshuvah when they moved to Lipsk. He married Aleksandria Alicja Andrulewiczowna (b. June 26, 1882) of Bosse, whose parents were an Andrulevicus and a Morgoviciute from Stakliskes prior to the death of Shmuil Morgovich (d. April 4, 1882 of tuberculosis).
- **The Trudnyaks claim to have been originally from Kacwin. They were from Jablonka nad Nowy Targ, and there were Trudnyakovs in Odesa, Ukraine who died in the Shoah. My branch ended up as Anusim in Vel'ka Frankova, Slovakia and Budapeszt, Hungary. The paternal grandmother of my father was Mary Trudnak Czarnecki, a daughter of Mihaly "Michael Trudn[i]ak" Trudnyak (the son of Mihaly and Maria Nagyova Trudnyak. The Nagys had been Anusim of Budapeszt and Obudai.) and Anna Amalia Munkova "Anna Monka" Trudnyak (who was named after a daughter of Samuel and Rosalia Korschova Munka. The daughter had a t'vilah l'Anusit and died shortly thereafter.
- Foczko/Focko: My branch became Anusim and left Radom, Warszawa, and Lodz for Upper Hungary (Slovakia) in the 1770s.
- Gajdosz (Hom[m]a and Gajdosz) and Uszinsky: My branches ended up in what are now Gaboltov and Secovce, Slovakia. For the Uszinskys, Anna Jas[z]ova (of Jan and Eva Polin/Palin Uszinsky) married Jan Haszlinsky (d. unknown) then Uszinsky (transliterated "Ushinsky"). Mihal "Michael Gaydos[h]" Gajdosz and Katarina "Katherine Ushinsky" Uszinskyova Gajdosz became Anusim as adults. Their son Michael was the maternal grandfather of my father, and married Marysia "Mary" Elizabeth Rusnak (the daughter of Anusim Andras "Andrew Rusnak" and Juliana Foczkova "Julia Fosko" Rusznak).
