Genealogy / Surnames Gall / Figura / Odrowaz [33]

Hi Angeline,

Are you still watching this thread? I see that my cousin also left a message on this thread about Zmuda families. I have some Gal, Figura and Stafira info that I collected this past summer while I was in Odrowaz (Odrowąż).

Figura, Michał, born in 1899
Czepiel, Anastazja
maternal grandparents: Czepiel, Józef and Knup, Katarzyna

father: Figura, Wojciech
paternal grandparents: Figura, Jan and Gal, Anna

I don't see the name Petin in my notes, but I do have a few Pitoń.

I am trying to locate other's who have ancestors from this small village Odrowąż in Malopolskie, near Nowy Targ. I am especially interested in seeing old photos taken of people, buildings, farms, and anything else in the village of Odrowaz.

My family names are Kulawiak, Kadłub, Stafira, Pagacz - all from Odrowąż, and surname Figura, from Czarny Dunajec.

Does anyone have any historical info to share?

Genealogy / Vintage Photos of Polish ancestors [144]

These photos are so wonderful. I have only a precious few photos of my family in Poland and they give me almost no information about how my family lived. I especially love the photos taken in the small villages that give us a glimpse of what life was like for our ancestors.

Genealogy / Rebizanty village - looking for info [5]

I am looking for information about the small village of Rebizanty in the administrative district of Municipality Susiec, Within Tomaszów Lubelski County, Lublin Voivodeship. Almost all links on the internet lead to information about the lovely stream and waterfalls near this village, but I have not found information about the village itself.

I'm looking for ancestors named Rebizant who listed their home as Huta Różaniecka, but I have not found them in the Huta Różaniecka church records. I was recently told about Rebizanty and I am curious to learn more about this village. If you have information or photos to share about this village, I would love to hear from you.
