Town Tour - Stawiski

10.5 miles WSW of Radzilow

Please contact me if you have roots in Stawiski. I have additional information and records for many Stawiski families.
There were also many marriages between residents of Stawiski and Radzilow, and you may have branches in Radzilow you don't know about.
