Hello again. Thank you for all your help. I have never thought about her baptismal record. I do not know what church she would have been baptised at, or what their denomination was... I think they were Catholic though. I will ask my grandmother. On another note, I used your Russian transliteration link, and I changed "Swirowo" to "Свирово" in Cyrillic. I put "Свирово" in Google search engine and found references to a town called Svirovo. The w-v change is common between languages where sometimes the v makes the v sound and sometimes the w makes the v sound. So that could have been the issue, or am I correct that w and v are interchangeable in Russian? The only thing, is that the Svirovo I found is in Russia near Smolensk. Do you think that ethnic Polish people would ever have been living there?
