if anyone has done research in Sierpc area, i'm hoping someone can help.
I have already found my grandfather & his sister in Kurowo parish films . he was born in Kuniewo & his sister in Zoltowo, both in the that area. I am currently trying fo find my grandmother & family in the same area. she was born in Smozewo according to her naturalization papers, which is right near Kurowo, Kuniewo, etc. so far all the films i have for there no luck.
they left for the US from Milobedzyn, which is a village near Sierpc, & i have the films for that, but they dont go past 1900. they were married in 1901 in Sierpc according to the nat. papers. of course that doesnt mean it was in Sierpc.
my question is for anyone who has experience researching this area or even others , what is the likelihood that the families moved around between the births & marriages? my next step is to look for her father who was probably born in mid 1840's & maybe a marriage in early 1860's. her sister was born in 1865 & still cant find her either. my grandmother was born in 1882.
could she have been baptized & birth recorded in another Parish in the area, other than Kurowo, even though it is closest? i have also rented films for Mochowo & Golesyn now & nothing yet there.
would they have migrated around perhaps a 10 mile or so radius? i am just frustrated i cannot even find 1 of her family.
would appreciate any input or suggestions from anyone who has done this area.
thank you .
