Hi, I would appreciate any information. I am looking for family in Poland. My grandfathers name was Ignacy Chorab Koczuska. I have very little information about him, because he died when my mother was 2 years old. He came to South America some year between 1925 and 1928, first to Argentina and then to Uruguay, where he met and married Julia Tulacz Tulacz, my grandmother also Polish. He was born the 12 of january 1907, in Bozydarze; Opatow. This I know from the only document I have, its from the Szkola Powszechna, in Juljanowie, Opatow, were i assume he finished high school in 1924. The other fact I know is that he was a musician, because of a picture were he stands along with a music band, that picture was taken in Tarlowie, and it has a stamp behind that says Fotografja/ S. Zdebich (the photographer ?). Well i dont know if there is a chance, but i take the chance. Thank you for any reply. There is a chance that Bozydarze , Opatow is in Kielce. Im trying to find parishes there.

I would suggest you go to Ancestry.com and sign up for the free time they offer. Then type in the surnames of your relatives and see if there is information on them. i did a search for Bozydarze and not hits so I truncated it and got this.

Once you decide which town it is then you look for the churches. Also you might try to find out if they left Bremen or Hamburg. Hamburg has a list on line you can search.

Hello, thank you for your reply. Today I found a map of Polands distribution in 1907, the year when my grandfather was born. There I found out that Opatów, the powiat were he was born, was in the Gubernia of Radomska. Where can I find were that powiat is know a days. I think it can be in Swietokryskie,but i am not sure. Ive tried lots of links about Gubernia Radomska, but I cant Find were it is located know. Thank you
