JGenrs,

My relatives >from many generations ago were suppose to have been involved

The main and widely known Poland's salt main is called Wieliczka near
Krako'w. It's an amazing place, were underground made sculptures, including
small church are carved in a salt rocks. There are several smaller salt
mines in the same area.
