Hi, I visited Manasterz and Zagorze (from which my family originated) in 1999. Inquiries about my family didn't yield any information. I posted all I know about my family on my web-page (http://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/pilchj
), click on Polish culture, Pilch Family.
This information recently brought a very surprising and most welcome response from a family member still living there. Local gossip spread in 1999 about my visit, but no one bothered to ask for my name or other information. Poles seem to be very reticent (secretive? result of Communist Occupation)? Even now that we have made contact, and I desire to visit and meet them in person, e-mail communication is incredibly rare. Perhaps this is as far as an American can get.
Good luck to you.
