Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Friday, March 24, 2000

I looked up the name Wozny in the Mormons' databases. There are a bunch of them in the Ancestral File, most of them centered around a place called Schalkowitz (or Alt Schalkowitz), Opole, Poland. I couldn't find any place called Schalkowitz in the Global Gazetteer, but there are five or ten places called Opole, a couple of which are in areas that could be described as ethnically Ukrainian.

The International Genealogical Index for Continental Europe has a ton of them, too, over 200.
