Post subject: Rokiczanka, a folk ensemble from SE Poland
I would like to recommend you a fantastic video and song performed by Rokiczanka, a folk ensemble from a village near Lublin. You can read about them on their website, which has an English version too!
The song is called "W moim ogrodeczku" = "In My Little Garden" and there is a genealogical aspect to it!
There is something in that old villige songs that can be easily catched. I had not chance to hear many vinyls with these songs, but i see even new bands continue this "tradition" of singing about love affairs, about young boy trying do the best to endear a villige girl and how he win or loose and how parents of a girl behave when knowing this, all that in specific way.
I like first song "W moim ogródecku", it so lively. Slav You remembered me time when i was listening another folk band, awards winning: Kapela Ze Wsi Warszawa. Check out "Czerwone Jabłuszko", "Baba w piekle", "Żurawie" or "Zagrajcie muzykanty", "Rybicka".

Post subject: Rokiczanka - WONDERFUL folk ensemble from near Lublin
I was about to post a message about this wonderful Polish Folk Group Rokiczanka, a folk ensemble from a village near Lublin - and I found that Slav already mentioned them back in 2012. Please take a moment to enjoy their upbeat music. Their videos are made in costume and on location with old cottages and villages that make me think of how my ancestors lived.
They have their own facebook page and you can easily find their music on YouTube - just search Rokiczanka.

Hi, I have my grandfathers birth records, hand written from the Plock archive of 1895. Is anyone familiar with the language of the time, as I note that at the time the area was Russian / Polish. Many thanks Steve.
