I'm still looking into who my Great-Great-Great-Grandmother Bieszczak, but I've been thinking. My Grandfather described her as a "Healer," which I believe in Poland is called a Szeptunka, a Christian Folk Healers. I haven't read so much yet, but it appears they lean more towards the Orthodox Church. I believed the paternal side of my family came mainly from a Roman Catholic background, but is it possible to find szeptunkas among GREEK CATHOLICS as well? I ask because is dropping hints of certain Bieszczaks / Biszczaks around Lesser Poland who are Greek Catholics.
