Can anyone recommend a site (preferably free and in English) for Polish genealogy?  I am currently stumped by the REMBISZ and SIECZKOWSKI branches  of my family tree.

I am missing some links for a Andrew M SIEZCKOWSKI(b. ~1888) in Grudek or Grudki, Poland, and a Stanislaw REMBISZ (b. ~1892, imm. 28 Oct 1912), born somwhere in Poland.

I can now answer my own question.  The best site I have found is http://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/

The site allows for searching of Polish church records.  It requires some experiential learning, but you can also download images of birth entries in their original latin.

Ancestry.com has a discussion group that I've used

http://boards.ancestry.com/localities.ceeurope.poland.unknown/mb.ashx

 

Others you may find of interest include;

http://polishgeno.com/

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~polwgw/polandgen.html

 

If you happen to run across the surname of Kazmier, let me know.

I haven't tried the international version of ancestry.com (I curious to know any feedback from others) but I know they've done a lot of work copying and indexing the Polish church records. Right now the best place to locate this info is from the Mormons (LDS) which has microfilms of the original records, but you need to know the parish where the records are located (can be found from the city and date or records, since the parish and even country changes over time) and you have to order each separate microfilm to be delivered to a local LDS family history center. There is additional info on familysearch.org. I've found the Polish online search engines very difficult to navigate also.
