Hello, all I have ancestors from Ludzmierz, and if you do please drop a note below.

Ludźmierz is a village in Poland in the Lesser Poland voivodeship, in the county of Nowy Targ. Ludźmierz is the oldest village in Podhale and is located about 85 kilometres south of Kraków. It lies approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) west of Nowy Targ and 66 km (41 mi) south of the regional capital Kraków.

Some surnames that come from Ludzmierz include the following:

James,
I had started a chart on Ludzmierz immigrants to the US in 2012, but had to quit for family reasons. I don't have the time at the moment to complete it, but thought it might be helpful to post at least the version I had put together so far. Any additions or corrections are appreciated.
I posted the chart under the forum topic "Emigration" that I'm hosting: http://forum.polishorigins.com/viewtopic.php?t=3519

I am currently trying to research the Kwak family from Ludźmierz. On my grandfather's US passport application (Szymon Kwak) from 1922 has an affidavit from his mother, Maryanna Kwak (90), requesting he return to Ludźmierz so she could see him before she passed. She mentions she has another son, Ludwik Kwak and a daughter Wiktorya Kway Czaja both living in Ludźmierz at that time.

Szymon Kwak arrived in the US on June 3, 1893 at the age of 30.

I have not been able to gather any additional information and would appreciate any insight.

Thank you and very excited just to see this forum.
