Osadnik list
The Polish Osadnik organisation - Stowarzyszenie Rodzin Osadnikow Wojskowych i Cywilnych Kresow Wschodnich has published a list showing names and locations of all Osady and Osadniks. This is really useful list if your family were military settlers, “Osadniks”, as you can find details of where they were based and who else was settled at the same Osada.
