My great-grandparents were from Turosl (family name Bonczek) and Serafin (family name Szwarc). What is the best way to search for living relatives and/or church records (baptism/cemetery)? Thank you.

Stephen,

According to this birth certificate, your ancestor's birh record was issued by Kolno parish. It seems that Joseph's parents family research should be done in Kolno parish birth and marriage records books from before 1876. They are kept in State Archive in Białystok probably (http://www.bialystok.ap.gov.pl/) or Diocesan Archive in Łomża (http://www.diecezja.lomza.pl/kuria/kuria-diecezjalna).
