Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Słownik Geograficzny Entry for Piertanie.  The entry, translated from the Polish, states:

Piertanie, a village on the small lakes Pierty and Wigry, Suwalki Powiat [District], Hutta Gmina [municipality], Wigry parish.  Twelve viersts [1 vierst = 1.0668 km] not far from Suwalki, it has 15 homes, 109 inhabitants, 327 mórgs [1 mórg in the Russian Partition = 1.388 acres] in territory.  Swampy land.  In 1827 there were 7 homes, 38 inhabitants.

The parish for Piertanie is in Wigry.  The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has church records for Wigry from 1808-1882.  I may be able to find some relevant records in these microfilms.

I’ve mentioned the Słownik Geograficzny several times in the past.  I use this reference often to discover to which parish a particular village belonged and to learn more about the village.  Some entries, like the entry for Piertanie, are very brief.  The entry for Wigry, the parish, is much more extensive.

    Thanks for writing! You and I should exchange information. If your Izbicki ancestors were born in Piertanie, you are most likely related to my Izbicki relatives here in the United States.
