I believe the Tryba and Ciesla side of the family both come from the Southeastern region of Poland, the Tatra mountain area. This is beautiful country and I highly recommend you visit if you can. These are the Alpine-esque mountains where the poor used to rob from the traveling rich and redistribute among the villagers.

The relative that Lynn met on the family farm was P. Czeslaw Ciesla (Babci’s side of the family), who is most likely passed on by now, as he seemed to be about 70 when she met him about 20 years ago. Address was 33264 Cwikow 13 (Cwikow is the name of the village.), Woj. Tarnow, Poland.
