Kolebuck and Kosiba families from Ropczyce

My grandparents emigrated from Poland to the US around 1900 settling first in PA for about a decade and then finally in Toledo, OH. I'm wondering if anybody has any advice on how to find the families they left in Poland and prior generations? I'd like to find resources other than trying to communicate with Polish speakers in Poland of uncertain skill or qualifications offering to help for a fee. Before determining that Ropczyce was their likely birthplace, I'd tried to reach out to a church in another area close by that I thought they were from only to be ignored. Somebody told me I'd possibly get better results if I sent money. This isn't an approach I'm comfortable with. Thanks.
