after one finds their ancestor that emigrated here USA, what if they do not know the parish or just a general area? is there any hope for further research in poland or do they need to have a
relative living there?
Let me give you my story in the short form and as an example: I'm the "Polish"-- really Ashkenazic Jewish-- descendant of an unknown Chernetski, whose name became Antoni Jan Julianowicz Czarniecki, then Anthony John Czarnecki, Sr.. When I first began researching, I got an e-mail that read in part that a town called Lisko Orlisko, where Great-Granddad Anthony "Tony" Czarnecki, Sr. was born, was Lipsko in between Radom and Puławy. Lisko Orlisko actually turned out to be Lipsk nad Biebrzą, and all we still know so far is that the Chernetskis owned a family farm in Lipsk nad Biebrzą, Augustów, Suwałki, Poland Russia. We have no szul

I should've said "where Great-Granddad['s] dad and granddad were born." Great-Granddad was born in Cumań, Kiwercowski, Wołyń.
