markskibniewski 3 | 200 15 Feb 2010 #1I have come to a major roadblock or an end depending on one's interpretation. The earliest record I can find regarding my family is in 1826 wedding record that lists parent information. I have no way of looking further back. The records just don't exist. Is this it? Am I finally done or are there other ways of finding records that exist further back than archives in Poland. I want in my heart to go further but am truly perplexed as to find anything else. My family came from Podbielko Poland a small village. I have checked all religios record from Stary Luboten which was the proper Catholic parish of that time. Is this really it? I have even tried neighboring parishes but thier records do not go any further back. My heart feels empty. I want to go further but I think this is the end. Thank you all for your enthusiasm and I hope all of your searches don't end as abruptly as mine. Good luck all.
