As I was browsing a few of the genealogical groups on Facebook I came across a posting showing a picture of a church. The church looked familiar like I’ve seen the picture previously. I did. My father had a photograph of this church and he had commissioned a painting to be made from it.

At the time I didn’t know that name of the church just that my father said that it was the church from the village that he grew up in, Lutowiska. According to the information I now have is that the name of the church is Church of Archangel Michael in Lutowiska. The information on this church is in Polish (you’ll have to enable Google translator to read the details).

Unfortunately, according to the information about this church it no longer exists. In 1979, the church was handed over to the local Latin parish, which in May 1980 demolished the church, and used wood for further use in the construction of the church in Dwernik.

Now I’ve got a few more gaps in my father life filled in and more research material to investigate. From the documents that I had previously received I know that my father was a Greek Catholic. I didn’t know which parish records I had to chase down. Having stumbled onto this bit of information has helped in filling that gap. What I need to find out now is where are the records from this church and do they even still exist? If anyone has any information on this church or its records I’d appreciate hearing from you.

While researching my family history I have been trying to locate whatever information I can about the village my father was born in, Lutowiska.  Presently, the village is located in Poland but when my father was born it was part of Ukraine.

As a member of a genealogy group on Facebook called Galacia Family History Group I came across a post that detailed another person’s villages detailes (i.e. admin area, judicial district, and the name of each religious parish/congregation).  There’s an old saying “Ask and you shall receive”.  Well, I asked the poster where they found such detail for the villages of Galacia.  I received a reply directing me to the website Gesher Galacia.  There I found not one Lutowiska but 2 of them (see below).

Another set of information added to my research foundation.  I  can now give additional criteria to my searches regarding Lutowiska.  To the best of my ability I have determined that my father’s village would be the first Lutowiska listed because the Judicial District is Lutowiska and when I check the maps on Google, my father’s village points to that location.
