Looking for my Polish family (Wieruszow area)

I'm French but my great grand parents were Polish. So, I'm looking for information about them because I would like to organize a trip to Poland to discover my origins.

I only know that my great grand mother was born in 1893 in WIERUSZOW. I know her name and my great grand father's too.
Do you know if we can consult the registers dating back to that time in Poland?
Could you give me advice to get more information?
Thank you in advance for your help.
You can send me a PM if you want me to tell you their identity.

Yes, I've tried to send them a mail via their website but I don't know if it has worked since the whole website is in Polish.

Hi Arnaud,
Usually it is good to start searching for ancestors from listing family names, names of villages, dates of birth etc...anything you know so far. This is highly possible that one day someone will read it and come to help you. It really works.

If you know the place of birth you can contact local parish (parafia) and ask if there is any information in parish register (księga parafialna).

You can also contact with registrar's office (urząd stanu cywilnego) and ask for copy of birth certificate (odpis aktu urodzenia) if there are any (to get such a document unforunatelly you need to confirm the relationship somehow).

What I can recommend you is to register and use, this is great tool (similar to facebook) where you can search for people using city name, village name and family name as search criteria. You can find people having the same name as your great grand parents'. Unfortunatelly this portal is in polish only.

You can always contact me by e-mail:
Just let me know if you need help:) Good luck!
