The Bielawa Family
Descendants of Maciej Bielawa, Środa region (south of Pozna
ń)

                                                            (Close up of region: ancestral villages underlined)
 

Please note that the my own Bielawa family does not come from Galicia, but from another part of Poland, namely, the region south of Poznań around the town of Środa.

  Therefore, much of the research methodology found on these Galician web pages does not relate to Poznan region, which was historically part of the Prussian or German Partition of Poland.

For more information and research methodology, please visit my page on the Prussian Partition of Poland
