KAWA's in Lisia Gora, Lekawice, Tarnow

I'm posting to see if this list is still active. I've also posted to the Poland list.

Trying to find my ggrandparents, JOSEPH and SOPHIE KAWA. They had seven children. JOHN, JOSEPH, AGNES (PYZDEK), SOPHIE (MITERA), and FRANK, all immigrated to S. Omaha, NE in the early 1900s. Two daughters, KATHERINE and MARY remained in Poland. I don't know whether they married.

The family story is that JOSEPH died (before 1913, I believe), SOPHIE remarried, and she had one more child, STANLEY, with her new husband.

The (skimpy!) records for my Nebraska KAWAs indicate various hometowns in Poland: Rekawice(?), Lekawice, Lisia Gora, and Tarnow, so Im trying to narrow my search.

Id like to find birth, marriage or burial records for any of my Polish KAWAs. Im fairly new to this process, so any direction from those of you who have more experience is appreciated. Dziekuje!

Nancy
