I have just begun renovating this website, after a three year absence. I’ve been working on the Jarkiewicz Family Tree since Robert Jarkiewicz sent me information on where to research. I have found lots of people to add to the tree. So far I have gone back to the marriage of Tomasz Jarkiewicz and Jadwiga Kolejska in 1843. I will soon have the tree online. One...

In the Summer of 2014, I was contacted by Robert Jarkiewicz, who lives in Krakow, but whose family is from Sokolina. He sent me information from a Polish website: http://geneteka.genealodzy.pl and it turns out that we have the same great grandparents! More on this later.

The Summer flew by too quickly and I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked to continue research. Lately I discovered a photo website that shows the Church in Sokolina – and the photos were taken by Adam Jarkiewicz!!!! Could we be related?? I left him a message there but he has not responded. Unfortunately I do not have his email address: The photo is here:...

Another Breakthrough!

By on Sep 26, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

In the past, for my grandmother, the only place in Poland that everyone said she was born in was Tarnobrzeg. Now, Tarnobrzeg is a very large area. I sent for her Alien Registration Form that she had to fill out during World War II, since she never became a citizen. The name of the town was not clear, as if the keys on the typewriter were broken. Then, last Summer, I...
