The priest wrote the mother’s maiden name, crossed it out, and then wrote her full name. He noted the correction in the left margin of this record and signed the correction with his initials (FS). This is the first record I found that referred to a village with Dymki in the name. The village of Piasutno Dymki was listed as Stanislaw Dymek’s place of birth on his World War II Draft Registration Card. I don’t know if or how this Stanislaw Dymek is related to the Dymek’s in my family but perhaps I should try to find out who his parents were now that I’m reasonably certain I’m researching the records for his birth place.
