Below is what I have pieced together from the church records for the parishes of Szerzyny and Swoszowa in Galicia, southern Poland (former Austria-Hungary) from the years 1826-1866. I only focused on the Sowizdral families. Other spellings are Sowizrol, Sowizdrzal and Sowizral. The great majority of Sowizdrals in the two towns live in Swoszowa. There are undoubtedly many duplicates in the list, but when I wasnít sure of a relationship I listed the people separately. Some records list the individuals parents, while others do not, which is why sometimes I am unsure as to the personís identity. The names are in Latin in the records, and when I recorded them, I translated them to English when it was easier but for some I am not sure of the English equivalents. The Polish equivalents are another story. A name like Adalbert in Latin might be Wojciech in Polish. Anyone who is really interested would have to research Polish names. Mary, Maria, Marianne and other derivations are impossible for me to distinguish, so anyone listed as any of them could in fact have gone by any other similar name. Lists are set up so that each name tabbed beneath a preceding name is a child of that person. Each empty line denotes a different family. I can be contacted at hiddendragon02@hotmail.com.

Swoszowa
I was not as thorough while chronicling the Sowizdrals in Swoszowa because my own ancestors are not from there. I tried to get most of them, but many of the female families especially I did not try especially hard to track down. This is not a definitive list, but probably contains 85% - 90% of the Sowizdrals in the records for Swoszowa.
