Sandomierz, Ruskie, and other provinces: They say that Wladyslaw one of the
kings of Poland, provided one (of Popiels) with certain estate in Drohobycz
area, due to his merits in service, where he established his own village named
Popiele after his name, having great number of inhabitants.

Hello Dear Mr. Jan!
Following up my recent letter I am forwarding following information for your use:

4. Michał Popiel- a copy of genealogy, 2nd page.
5. PopelRodovid.exl- genealogy of other Popiels' lineages living in Tustanowicze (90 per cent) and village Popiele (10 per cent). Possibly, these linneages merge somewhat, but I cannot confirm. Nine page titled "Popiel- różne" contains data, which cannot be referenced to others, since information is incomplete.
