If you would like to know the number of times any surname appears in the

The indexing of the vital records for some of the other towns in this
area has been completed. They are BIELSK, BODZANOW, DROBIN, SIERPC and
WYSZOGROD.

In addition, indexes to Books of Residence for GOSTYNIN and RACIAZ are
also available. It is worthwhile checking the surname lists for all these
towns with families intermarrying and moving around the district.

I look forward to hearing >from those of you with an interest in Plock or
the surrounding area as well as anyone with any questions about the
indexing projects.
