Research from Końskie Area Churches

DSC09277Św. Mikołaja (St. Nicholas) church in KońskieWhen I was researching my own family, thousands of hours were spent building the family tree while going through rolls of microfilm from a number of churches. My Firkowski family is scattered all over Poland & sometimes I did not know where other family was and had to do some trial & error research in nearby churches and found family in parishes near Końskie. My research covered many churches, but even though I have been to Poland a number of times, I had yet to see many of the churches that I spent so much time looking through their records. I thought it was time to rectify that & a whole day was dedicated to visiting those parishes.

The first stop was at Św. Mikołaja (St. Nicholas) church in Końskie. Many of the family come from the area of Rogów which is just outside of Końskie, but Rogów did not have a church at that time, but we decided to stop to see the church that now is there. We were curious if the priest knew of any family that still lived there, but he did not recognize the name. The church DSC09292Inside Św. Mikołaja churchthere was only 25 years old.



Next stop was in Gowarczów to see śś. Piotra i Pawła (Saints Peter and Paul) church. The cemetery was not in view from the church, so we asked someone where it was. Just a short walk away we took a quick walk through the cemetery to look for family graves, but in our short visit we did not see any. My next visit I would like to be prepared & take more time for a thorough search.

After visiting the church in Gowarczów we went to Białaczów to see św. Jana Chrzciciela (St. John the Baptist) church which was originally built in the 13th century, but we encountered the cemetery first. A quick look around allowed us to locate a number of family graves. Driving into Białaczów, we thought we would quickly see where the church was but were unable to find it and had to ask someone. The church did not have a very high steeple.
