Hi Dianne
How nice to hear from someone who shares the same ancestors'
location. I also loved the area surrounding the villages.
My sister and I travelled with a genealogist who drove us around and found the amazing connection to family. We are RC and have looked in the parish registers in several different churches. I also have used the films from Family Search.
I am sad that we do not share any ancestor names. My brick wall seems to be my maternal grandfather, Francis Rzuczek.
I have not been able to find any immigration records for him, but I have found his brother. The village listed as his residence is GODOWA, the home village of my grandmothers' family, the Hajduks. The priest at the church in Godowa was very kind and helpful. The priest at the parish in Jawornik was very busy and only spent about 1/2 hour with us. The civil registers were very helpful in finding the Gorzynik family.
Thank you so much for your kind offers. When I return in September, we will once again use the services of our tour guide/genealogist, who has now become a friend.
I will be happy to share any new information when we return.
Take care and thanks again for yet one more connection.
Kindly, Fran
