Has anyone ever visited any of the following villages in Poland?
Boginia (near Lodz)
Next month, I'm going to Poland primarily on a tourist trip. But I've
convinced my non-genealogy friend to go to one or two ancestral towns with
me. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to do much prep/research. My
people all left these villages by the early 1800s, so I'm not sure how long
Germans even stayed in any of these villages.
If anyone has visited any of these villages, I'm curious whether there's
still a German cemetery or old German church. Or any other points of
genealogy interest I should know about. Or any sources of basic history
about any of these villages I could read up before I go?
Also, if anyone knows a translator in Warsaw that I could hire to go with me
to the village (I usually find that having someone who can speak the
language and ask some questions is useful in visiting a village.)
