Please welcome Rob Gibson to the group.
Rob, if your Polish grandparents were married in Italy, it is likely that
they were in the Polish Army together and their records would be held in the
Ministry of Defense in Hayes, UK. Also, their marriage records would likely
be held in the Polish Catholic Mission in London. Both these sources could
yield important information for you. See details on these and other sources
at our webpage at http://www.aforgottenodyssey.com/reference.html
let us know what you discover!
