My name is Eden Joachim. I am not researching ancestors from Kanczuga.
I joined the group to read your messages in order to offer assistance and
guidance when I can.
I have been very involved with JRI-Poland's indexing projects since 1999 and
am the Coordinator for both the Rzeszow and Skolyszyn branches of the Polish
There are not many records for Kanczuga available to researchers and I
believe existing vital records may be mostly inaccessible because they are
in the USC office rather than in the PSA.
Because Kanczuga was near many of the towns whose records have been indexed
under my coordination, family names many of you are researching may appear
in the files for those towns. JRI-Poland posts Surname Frequency lists for
towns which have been indexed on their website, www.jri-poland.org. Choose
Your Town and look for the town of interest near Kanczuga. Feel free to
contact me directly for surname lists and information on the various
projects I coordinate.
Of particular interest may be the records for the towns of Lancut, Grodzisko
Dolne, Tyczyn, Rzeszow, Lezajsk, Sokolow Malopolski, Glogow Malopolski,
Niebylec, Brzozow , Sanok, Lesko, Jaslo, Biecz, Mielec.
My ancestors were from Rzeszow and Tyczyn. Names of interest are
JACHIMOWICZ, KURTZ, BRACHFELD, EILE, PLATZER.
Thanks, Philip for putting this list together to benefit everyone.
