[tarnobrzeg-gen] Rozycki family
- Hi, all.
I just got bit by the geneology bug. I was cleaning out my mother's
house, and found a box of letters from my grandfather's family in
Padew, Poland. My grandfather's name was Michal W. Rozycki. He was
born Sept 12, 1885. His father's name is Matteusz Rozycki. I don't
know where to go from there. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

information anywhere!! They have microfilmed records from all over the world!

that they are filming there now.
Try to find where the family was in 1920, and get the census records for
them. That will give you an idea of who came over, and it will tell you the
years they arrived. It will also tell you if they were naturalized or not,
and give the year, if they were. You can get ship information, once you know
the year, from the Family History Center, and you can get Naturalization
records too, from either the FHC or the National Archives. Also some local

and places for births, deaths and marriages. Then, write to the churches,

the state, but don't neglect the churches, they usually had more information,
like places of birth, names of parents, and witnesses!
