Well no Surname Resource Centre site for the surname Czarnik would be complete unless you included information about the country of ethnic origin, Poland.  We certainly would not claim to be the be all and end all source of information on Poland.  But what we will start with are some links that we have identified in our WWW travels, that cover things starting from the basic geography (yes MAPS!), culture, history and where possible specific genealogical links that may help us and others find more info about our family's specifics.

As briefly detailed in Accessgenealogy Researcher Listings for Czarnik Road closed ahead the immediate family (late 1800's) related directly to Larry & Colleen Czarnik come from Zaborow, a town in SE Poland near Rzeszow.  For more details about Czarniks in Poland, see Czarnik SRC - Archives - Poland.


Since some of the sites below are in Polish, we though it useful to include a link to a English-Polish, Polish-English web based translator we have just found.  InterTran (tm) Link to page on WWW  As we get more familiar with InterTran we will incorporate it more into our website.

[2003JN16 - Webmaster note:  We are disappointed to find that InterTran(tm) now only charges for their service / software.  We will find another web based English-Polish-English translation service shortly.  If you have any leads or ideas, please e-mail]
Note: All major links on this page are external Link to page on WWW and will open a new browser window.

History of Polish Surnames
The 10-volume, 6000+ page "Slownik Nazwisk" (History of Polish Surnames) by Rymut is now online!

The "Szukaj" button means "search".
