Hacrowie...........this is what was written for my dad's birthplace. Any idea where this is. Is it a form of writing the city Kracow? Any insight into this will be helpful. If its not Kracow then would any one know where it might be. The only thing I can find in Google is "2 zlote Hacrowie" in Worldcoins.

Not so fast. Obviously you give up to easily and if you rely strictly on Google you are in deep doodoo!!! It may not be in English but it maybe in another form on a Polish I haven't found yet. Sherlock Holmes you ain't but thanks for answering.

What is the source of this record?
Where have you searched besides Google?
Did he live in the States at all?
What dates are you working with?

It could be Krakow. When they asked him where he was born he maybe said said "w Krakowie"

It was written on his marriage certificate. I know there is English way of spelling and the Polish way of spelling so was wondering if this is where this came from. I want to start a geneology tree for our family but need correct spelling to start with. For some reason Poles believe innaming everyhting twice ????? go figure...My mom was born in Spytkowice and there are two. Who would know the difference unless they live in Poland.

It could be Krakow. When they asked him where he was born he maybe said said "w Krakowie"

You have a point except that when I saw the exact spelling on Google that was on the certificate it led me to believe that there might be an actual Hacrowie. (Unless they copied the Polish spelling) Or maybe since it is just the spelling thing that is why nothing is found in Google for this.
