Navigating Geneteka

Are you searching your Książyk ancestry? is an excellent tool. Some 14,7 million Polish people living between 1700 and 1900 have been identified in the data base. 119 Książyk people have been documented between 1700 and 1900. Official documents (births, wedding, deaths) are scanned. With Geneteka,  I found the  documents about my Great Great Father Walenty Książyk, his father Błażej Książyk and his wife Jozefa Krzyna. Geneteka also traces my Krzyna family line back to 1735.

You have to check regularly on Geneteka because the data base is a work in process. More names are added every months. You can also contact the volunteers who collected the data of your Książyk ancestry line.

The guidelines to navigate Geneteka are available on

I wish you all a good navigation and a happy journey with our ancestors.
