Knowing the house numbers where your ancestors lived is a big help in looking through the record books because the house numbers are listed and easy to find while scanning the pages. The houses in these villages were given numbers as they were built, not in order on the street.
In August of 2001 when I visited Poland, I went with Iwona to the offices in Osiek and Debowiec to view the books for myself and make some notes on additional records that we found. In May of 2002 Iwona again looked up additional records for me based upon further information that I now had on my ancestors.
Since then other people have obtained records from these villages and if they have given us permission to share them on this website, they are also included here.
I have come to learn of other researchers in Poland besides Iwona who do the same kind of research. If you are interested in their names and e-mail address, please send me an e-mail and I will forward that information to you personally.
Please feel free to pass along information to people who have ancestors with these surnames. I hope it will help many people to delve back into their past generations of these families. I have had many hours of joy and pleasure reading, charting and digesting information from these numerous pages of names. They allowed my mind to take me back into the times when our ancestors walked the beautiful Lemkovyna landscape; I hope it does the same for you.
