Hamish, how do you make the more 'in-depth' reasearch? Can you share some ideas or ways of accomplishing it?

Hamish, thank you for the answer.

Just keep searching, I think you'll find something. Don't give up :)

Thank you for the web-site, I'll see what is there.

Katya,

It's been a while since your posting so I hope you had a chance to explore the Research Helps at www.familysearch.org On the left you choose what kind of help and then click the letter of the alphabet. I've learned a lot just by browsing to see what's there.

I'm looking for the last name Czerleniewski, but there's nothing about it on the website www.familysearch.org

Try a wild card search on any of the websites you can access. Start by leaving out the "le" in the name--that's the syllable most likely to drop in translation. So, for example, if you search Cze*niewski you'll get a lot more hits, and maybe a hint of where to go with it. If you know as little as a country where anyone with that name lived, it gives you a better shot at narrowing it down once you get your initial responses. I have ancestors with the simplest names that were just MANGLED by census takers, lol.  Good luck!

Gin, thank you for advice to exclude one of the cyllables, but this would widen my search tooooo much.

I visited my relatives recently and I know more about my ancestors now.
