Wadowice Gorne Data Base. The same index with more data, in Excel format. 1 Meg. If you know how to sort data using Excel, this format is convenient for research. For example, this file has father’s name, so you can sort by father. Or you can sort by microfilm number. Or date. Or any combination.
Wadowice Gorne is a parish a few miles west of Mielec, Podkarpackie province, Poland. The parish includes Wampierzow. Before 1911, the parish also included the village of Wadowice Done, just west of Wadowice Gorne.
My interest: my grandfather Piotr Gwozdz came from Wadowice Dolne.
Wadowice Dolne / Gorne History. Translation from a well known 1892 Gazetteer.
Don’t get confused. There is a larger city named Wadowice, near Katowice in south Poland. Pope John Paul II came from that other Wadowice.
Last Name Spelling. Excel file. An index in alphabetical order. As you know, spelling of Polish names is variable, with various inflections for females. I devised a list of standard spellings (all masculine), so that my data base sorts families as groups, and sorts all records for an individual into the same group. This file has a list of all variations of spellings and inflections of family names 1777 - 1799 Wadowice Gorne microfilms, along with my standard spelling. Sorry if my standard is not the spelling used by your family. Use this file to find my standard spelling for names of interest to you.
Last Name Spelling - Web Version. Html file. The same data. In case you cannot use Excel.
Given Names (first names) are almost always in Latin. Again, I use a standard Polish spelling, according to my favorite combination of reference lists. Again, sorry if my spelling is not the one used by your ancestor.
Family Trees: These are family trees that I worked out using the Wadowice Gorne vital records (with the help of my index). These are .doc files that require Word for proper viewing of the layout of columns. Web browsers often do not display these properly, so consider saving the file and viewing with Word, in Page Layout mode.

Luszowice.doc. A detailed study of the Kmiec family of Luszowice, including my ancestors. It is written in a very cryptic, tedious style, as notes during my research. I plan to rewrite this in a shorter format, for addition to my genealogy book. This one is not from Wadowice Gorne.
