Natalie,

As I've checked there was a Roman Catholic parish in Radgoszcz. The vital records are stored in the Diocese Archive in Tarnów.

You can also have a look at the surname distribution map: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Pikul.
Surname Pikul is extremely popular in the area of Dąbrowa Tarnowska, and about 187 people bearing the surname Pikul are living in Radgoszcz nowadays. I am sure that wre some relatives of yours.

In the National Archives in Kraków there also exist the cadastral maps from 19th century, which might help to locate where your ancestors' houses used to stand. This could help in finding relatives as well.

Hi Natalie,
Agnieszka has given you great information regarding your Pikul family. While you did not say that you are looking for records on Eva's husband's family, I thought you might find it useful to use the spelling Gawłowicz in your search. The spelling "Galvlowicz" would not exist in Polish records. If you copy-and-paste the spelling Gawłowicz into the search box on the website Agnieszka linked you to, then you can see the distribution of people of that surname as well.
The letter "v" is not used in Polish words or names, but the sound of "v" is made with the letter "w." Hence, Eva's name in Polish records would be Ewa.
Good luck with your search,
Sophia
P.S. The cadastral maps that Agnieszka mentioned are not only useful, but sometimes quite pretty!
