Lawica - maybe, but we have two Lawica on the Polish map, and both are located in West Poland. I'm waiting now for the next huge help from my collegues Polish etymologists, they are trying to find any "Rawica" or near spelling/pronounciation. ALL MUST BE DONE to find this Stanilsaus Gierus's ancestral town, you know how it's important in any further search - sometimes I feel that our forum is the last chance to find any trace in Poland, and without it the family history will be lost for all next American generations forever.
Here in your Poland first sunny and warm days of early Spring, thanks also of Pennsylvania groundhog day!! :) Tad
