thank you for your reply the only information I have on my grandfather is a registration of matrimony birth zawoja po zawaoja Diocesis Krakow. Joanne Legut born December 24 1885. lists his parents as Joseph Legut and mother Rosalia Migacz. it says he came to united states in 1896. I am at a stand still finding anything about my grandfather and his parents or broths and sisters.

Have you tried writing to the Catholic or civil archives in Poland for records? Since you have the name of your grandfather's parents and where they lived, you could most likely obtain birth/baptismal records for all children born to them. That would certainly answer your question.

It doesn't seem as if the LDS have microfilmed any records from this area of Poland, so your best bet is to write to one of the archives.

Jurek gave you the name and address of the old church in Zawoja:

sw Klemensa w Zawoi-Centrum
Zawoja 123
34-222 Zawoja
POLAND

This church has records that go back to 1825. The Archives do not show it has the records of this church.

The Archdiocese for this church is in Krakow and you can find the correct name and address by going to www.zawoja.pl/parafia/ and click on linki and then click on Archidiecezja Krakowska for the full name and address.

When you write, do so in Polish. There are many Polish Letter Writing Guides on line. Try to keep your letter to one page and you must show the names of your ancestors they were given in Poland, such as Jan not John.

Having the names of the parents will help.

The web site of the church also gives you the name of the priests, etc. (click on kontact).

Your have the name and address of the church, where I would suggest you begin....with a letter written in Polish. I, also do not read, write or speak Polish and that is why I suggest you use the Polish Letter Writing Guide which is on line. Haven't tested it lately, but I think you need only go to www.google.com and type Polish Letter Writing Guide and it will bring up several sites.

If you do not get a response or cooperation from the church, then write to the Archives of the Roman Catholic Church:

Archiwum Kuria Metropolitalnej w Krakowie
ul. Franciszkanska 3
31-004 Krakow
Polsak (POLAND)
