Yes , but they really do not cover southern Poland.

Here is the best source for Poland research - https://sites.google.com/view/polishgen ... rnet-tools - that details tools and sites.

One of the simplest search criteria is to do wildcard search - first three or more letter followed by an asterisk

Ant* - this will get you Antoni, Anthony and any variation. You can do this for both the first and surname.

Another trick is to reverse the names; thus in the first name place Kirkle* and surname - Ant*. - It is good to do just to see if an indexer transposed the name.

Last night I was doing some research on some of the other family members. When Albin came to US he listed a Wincenty Kirklewski as his US contact and uncle.

Then in1902 a Josef Kirklewski came to US and listed Wincenty Kirkland as his brother which would mean he too was an uncle to both Albin and Antoni. Wincenty lived in Thondike? Massachusetts.

Working backwards, I found Joseph Kirklewski b 1879 Poland married to Ludwika/Louisa b 1884 Poland. They lived in Bristol Massachusetts which is another polish area my family lived in.

I found a tree on ancestry with Josef and Ludwika I it and there was a link to find a grave. As it was stated in find a grave-the marriage record for them had Josef name as Jozupas Kirklauskas which may be the Polish/ Russian way of spelling the name😀
