Has anyone written a genealogical request letter to a parish in Poland?

+1 vote
Hi, I messaged a Polish woman who indexed some church records in Poland for more information. She said to contact the parish. I emailed, no answer. So I will now do a snail mail letter. FamilySearch has a guide: https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Poland_Letter_Writing_Guide#How_To_Write_a_Letter_in_Polish

Has anyone written a letter asking for information from a Polish parish before? Does the guide at the link seem OK? Did you receive the answers to your questions or not?

Thank you.

Hi Lincoln,

Yes, I have and had the same result as you, unfortunately. The guide and the link seemed correct. This was about a year ago.

Hi Joan,

Thank you for your comment -

So you wrote a letter and received a reply, with answers to your questions?

P.S. - In my case, it is a small parish, if that matters, and I don't want to screw it up.
No. No response at all. I must have misread your comment or question the first time. I wasn't able to follow up and try again due to health issues. 
Thank you. Best of luck. I'm sure they will eventually get back to you.

I also wrote to a small church in Poland, with no reply.  I even followed up. (Snail mail) That was over a year ago.  My thought was my family was Lutheran and most of the Catholic Churches took over. The sad thing is I even went to the church in person a couple of years ago, but no one was there.  Small church, rural community.
