Thanks to all who can help
Do an internet search on the town name. You can often find historical information on what it used to be called. When you search for your ancestor on the genealogy sites, search under Germany for a location as well as Poland.0
Thanks for oyur kind reply but no longer have access to Ancestry, since I use MyHeritage for my tree the costs are high enough0
Polish records can be tricky since Poland was under the rule of other countries (Austria/Russia/Germany. I found many links to my own tree in Prussia, Germany records. Use the name of the location (city/region/country during the year of record (e.g., in 1877, what was it called) for the search. I have found many more indexed historical records under Germany than Poland. Also keep in mind, that many records were damaged, destroyed, or misplaced during WWII.
Try going to FamilySearch's Research Wiki page:
You can search under Opole, Poland; Berlin, Germany, etc.
Thank you very much for your kind help, will try Germany then.
Have a good day, best regards from Netherlands
Have found that site, problem Germany is a large subject, if it concerns Polish towns now but German names then where to look?0
For example, I searched for "Grundorf, Poland" and found a link for an Ancestry collection: Eastern Prussian Provinces, Germany [Poland], Selected Civil Vitals, 1874-1945 (in German)
That tells you to try searching in location: Prussia, Germany0
