Hi all,

    I seem to recall seeing a message on the AGOFF-L mailing list which
mentioned that a member of the list had obtained records from the
Rozyszcze parish for years not covered by the microfilmed records from
the Polish Archives in Warsaw.  I don't have access to the AGOFF-L
archives or I'd look up the message for you.  According to this message
the Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych (AGAD) in Warsaw had several church
books from the Rozyszcze parish which had not been microfilmed.  I have
no idea if they have other church records or exactly what they have there.
Take care,
