Hi Jennifer, I also am searching for records in the Niepla area. Here's an email address that might help: firstname.lastname@example.org
. I received a very helpful response fairly quickly from an Anna (in Polish)
Your suggestion about a donation to the Archdiocese was helpful. I have been unsuccessful with the Polish Archives as well as a Polish genealogist. But an offering may do the trick.
I visited Niepla two years ago and got nothing new from the churches or residents. If you can shed any light on the village, I would appreciate knowing.
