I am trying to make contact with the catholic church in Znin. Recently visited Poland from USA and had limited time in the city of Znin. My great grandfather Michal Lewandowski was married in the church there, I believe Blessed Virgin Mary Queen of Poland church. He came to the USA as a young man and lived in Minnesota near my home, Foley/Gilman area. His father Fabian Lewandowski did not want him to leave Poland. I am looking for help in the church to locate any documents on Michal and my great, great, grandfather Fabian Lewandowski. Have also learnd name of great great great grandfather Nicholas Lewandowski in that area. Need someone who speaks english and can help with wedding and burial documents if available. any contact info or ideas would be appreciated. Michael Lewandowski Foley MN USA

@mlewandowski
Lewandowski is a popular surname - tens of thousands of users. The street must be named after a Lewandowski.
You didn't say what years you're interested in or what religion your ancestors were.
Generally speaking records that are over a hundred years old are kept in diocesan or state archives. Provided they survived all the wars etc
Some results from szukajwarchiwach.pl

See if there are scans online. If not contact the branch of archives mentioned there.
Try geneteka search engine - the thing is that not all records are indexed there
