Hello, can anyone please help me find any living relatives of my wife whos father Banedykt Dabrowski was born in Czarna Woda, Poland in1921 but moved to england after the war. We would like to visit Poland next year so that my wife can see where her father was raised and perhaps meet her relatives. Thank you for reading this, I would apreciate any information.

this may help:

this site is rubbish - it states there are only 28 people called Dąbrowski in Poland which is clearly false

well, if you will be able to give more detail of where Czarna Woda was since Poland lost much of the pre-war eastern territories - there is Czarna Woda in Poland now in Pomorze (województwo pomorskie) but I would not be surprised if there was another one in territories now not belonging to Poland

Wroclaw:this may help: this site is rubbish - it states there are only 28 people called Dąbrowski in Poland which is clearly false

sorry - there are 28 Dabrowkis according to the site not Dąbrowskis - there are plenty of Dąbrowskis in Poland - so actually the site maybe all right

what you need is to contact the local parish there and get in touch with someone who will be able to find any relatives of your wife's dad if any still live in the area

or just someone local who would be able to check that in the parish archives

Red Cross may be of some help if that fails

I live far away from there so I cannot be of direct help

Well - I have just looked for the parish email and haven't found any - just got an email to the dioecese authorities kuria@pelplin.diecezje.org

if you receive no reply to a letter in English you can send me one for translation

I will PM you my e-mail address
