Mędrzechów Birth Index

The following database is an edited version of the work John Dudek did on the Mędrzechów parish in the powiat of Dąbrowa (Tarnowska). Why were they edited? John's original work while suitable for printing or browsing (as you can do on the Polish Genealogical Society California website) did not have a consistent format that is required by computers. So most of the changes had to do with reformatting the data. This includes such issues as misplaced commas and having consistent name spellings where some were data entry errors, some were transcriptional errors, or perhaps the original records were not consistent.

If you are looking for the Zagraniczny family, Mr. Dudek fairly consistently spelled it Zaglaniczny. Be careful with names containing the letter t. The Polish ł looks like a t so some of names have a t where it should be ł. Many of these errors (but not all) were corrected. For example, Pobiegto is really Pobiegło. I suspect that some immigrants from Mędrzechów settled in Bondsville, Hampden County, Massachusetts because one finds many of the same surnames in Ss. Peter & Paul Cemetery in Bondsville.

This birth index for Mędrzechów runs from 1851 through 1900 with a few miscellaneous births outside this range.
