Hi Karen, you might ask one of these language volunteers.

Polish Maggie N I am American.I'm not a native speaker but willing to help translate genealogical records.
Polish Mike Choroszewski I am English, I can read and speak Polish, although not fluent I would be happy to help.
Great idea! I'll leave profile comments for them. I flipped your answer to a comment since I like the questions to appear in "unanswered" until they get the translation. Hope that's okay!
