Most of Rip’s Polish ancestors, including the Polka, Kloc and Maduzia families were poor farmers from the small villages in the Debica area of southeast Poland; Gawrzylowa, Jaworze Dolne, Jaworze Grone, Pilzno, Pilznionek and Zawierzbie.
These photos of the ancestral villages of Rip’s Polish ancestors were taken by James Derheim in the 1980’s. James also labeled all of the photos and included some hand made maps of the locations.
