My Grandfather Wojciech Jan Gajda came to the US in 1905. He was from Klikowa near Tarnow. I would like to find out how to obtain pictures and a phone book or listing to see if there are still Gajda's in the area. Any Hints?

A fair number of Gajdas (some 500) live in and around the town of Tarnów. The name probably originated as an occupational nick for a country piper.

GAJDA: piper or fiddler (homespun village musician)

My grandfather was Pawel Marchwica, and he left Klikowa for the last time in 1912. He left a wife Julia behind and I assume he might have even left children behind as he was 38 years old when he left. So I am looking for any descendants of Julia and Pawel Marchwica in and around Klikowa. Any help would be appreciated. Or even whether any Marchwica's still live in the area would be appreciated.
