hi there
i am trying to find or get some thread which i can investigate, to find the burial place of my grandfather. i understand he was taken by my aunt maryinya to koszylin, i dont have her surmane, but she had a child called yadwiga. maryinya married a russian guy. what kind of venture am i likely to have to go to koszylin and search the parish record there, is koszylin a big place, any piece of info may prove valuable. maybe yadwiga is on facebook or soomething like that.

thank everyone

Check you grandfather's surname spelling because in Poland:

Lutkowski - is male form of surname, (sometimes female form too, if living abroad Poland)
Lutkowska -is female only form

Which means, you'll need to look for Lutkowski surname in any of the Polish records regardless of his written form used abroad.

aunt maryinya to koszylin,....

No such name in Polish but name Marynia sounds similar to your name and comes from official names like Maria, Marianna or Maryna.

Do you mean city Koszalin?

maybe yadwiga is on facebook or soomething like that.

Maybe but without surname we'll never find out.

what kind of venture am i likely to have to go to koszylin and search the parish record there

Sometimes people are lucky but only if they have more info about the person. You'll need person's first name, as well as date and place of birth to be lucky to start the search .

If you already have this details look on the internet first and start with the city of his birth or where his relatives live or used to live in Poland.

Lutkowski - is male form of surname, (sometimes female form too, if living abroad Poland)
Lutkowska -is female only form

I mean Lutowski and Lutowska here, sorry for the spelling error.

thank for that asik
i realise it could be impossible, but i was hoping that maybe they were reading this, a mammoth bit of luck if they were. the spelling im not 100% about. she moved there to koszalin and from there info stopped. her daugther, the spelling is also unsure about. i was hoping that someone from koszalin would respond, but that is not to be i suppose, but thatnks to you all. grandad is lutowski. i had a look at loszalin to see how many grave sites there were, so when i visit, i can take a look, but as my info goes he was buried in an unmarked grave, so it would appear that my task is going to be impossible.

I did a little search through Polish websites. One of the most popular sites in Poland is nk.pl (former nasza klasa -our class).
There is registered woman from Koszalin, named Ania Berkowska (Lutowska). The name Lutowska is, as she indicates, her maiden name, maybe you should get in contact with her.

Also, on the same site you can see registered "rod/klan Lutowski/Lutowska/Lutowscy" where 47 different families with Lutkowski/Lutkowska surname are listed.

Good luck!

You can contact her on the nk site directly, I don't know of any other possible way to contact her. You'll need to register to the site and then you'll be able to send her message.
