Polish EagleThe Plachno Family and

Borzecin Genealogy Site

(The crowned White Eagle shown here is a traditional symbol of Poland and the Polish people. The photo below the line came from Helen Piatkowski in Syracuse and shows the Catholic Church in Borzecin.)

Borzecin ChurchMy name is Larry Plachno and my family got interested in geneaology a few years ago. Both of my paternal grandparents came from Borzecin in Poland which then was called Galacia and was occupied by Austria. We have traced our Plachno family back to the early 1700s in Borzecin and have shared information with several other branches of the Plachno family as well as other families with roots in Borzecin.

One of my sons recently showed me how to create Web pages so I am trying to start this genealogical Web site for both the Plachno family as well as other families from Borzecin. Please understand that I am really new at Web page design and that this is entirely a non-commercial site. Your comments, suggestions and encouragement is very welcome.

My long term goals are to provide information, links, and documents on Borzecen families as well as provide a location where information can be shared with others. If there is sufficient interest, I may even attempt to convert documents to PDF files and put them out here for others to download.

Click here for my geneaology download page. This has PDF files including two versions of my notes for "Your Polish Genealogical Family Newsletter, in Print and on the Internet" presentation at the 23rd Annual Converence of the Polish Genealogical Society of America on October 7, 2000.

The Slownik Geograficzny was published in the late 1800s and included information on most major communities in Poland. Here is the information it provided on Borzecin.

Please e-mail me with your suggestions and comments.
