One of the earliest known Dymek ancestors of my cousins was Józef Dymek, born in about 1863 in Dymki, Kolno, Łomża. I think I have discovered the correct parish, Mały Płock, but the microfilmed records are few and far between. I don’t know if this Józef Dymek is the correct person, but the microfilmed records are so few that I may need to hire a professional researcher in Poland to confirm. I do, however, believe that Mały Płock is the correct parish because of the great number of people there with the surnames Dymek and Gołas and the fact that Piasutno (called Piasutno-Dymki in some records) is in the Mały Płock parish.
