I have been researching in the parish of Niwiska, near Kolbuszowa, for several years and would really like to "chat" with others who may have relatives from this area. Also looked at nearby villages such as Kossowy, Siedlanka, Przewrotne, and the Mielec area.
Many of these people immigrated and settled in Dupont, PA. and Detroit besides other places.
The surnames in my direct line are Warunek, Zadlo, Staron, Swider,Dziewit, Saj, Marc and Mazur, but am researching collateral lines as well. These surnames include Jemiola, Regula, Bialek, Boron, Cwanek, Cebula, Kasza, Kuna, Guzior, Majka, Preneta, Rakoczy, Turek, Opiela, Rydzy, Ploch and Pilat.
If any of this sounds familiar, I would love to hear from you even if just to say hello.
