I am working on my early ancestry >from Krakow, Poland particular the
second half of the 18th century (about 1750 to 1800). This is the era prior
to surnames when people merely had a patronymics (e.g., Izaak, son of
Jakob). The absence of surnames makes this era particularly difficult to
research, and I would very much like to hear >from anyone who has experience
in this area (i.e., pre-1800 Krakow).

I have quite a lot of family data (which is not >from my ancestry) that I can
share with others who are specifically interested in this topic.
