In the process of fully extracting the random surviving 19th century records of Ostrolęka, the
JRI-Poland volunteer discovered that they include the pre-1917 vital records of Goworowo.
A long-time mystery solved!
In addition, JRI-Poland received permission to inspect the surviving 20th century records for
various years between 1917 and 1936 in the Civil Records Office in the Goworowo town hall.
We used the opportunity to extract all the marriage and death records that are no longer
subject to Polish laws protecting personal data. While the births from 1920 to 1937 remain
private, we know which family names that appear in the births.
