Because of the surrounding forests, the Lithuanians thought that the area would make a perfect place for a penal colony, and so, late in the Dark Ages, Suwałk was founded. In 1336 Poland assumed dominion over Suwałk as the result of the marital union of Polish and Lithuanian royalty■ In 1795 Prussia became Lord and Master of Suwałk and the Prussians ruled until 1807 when Suwałk took on a French flavor under Napoleons1 rule. It is under the enlightened reign of Napoleon that the first Jews, forty-four in all, were permitted to settle in Suwałk ...

The townhall went up in flames and with it all documents that might have shed some light on the history of the township. Baranow was not long in rebuilding.

Thus, for a long period, events in the community did not occur according to the calendar year, but so many years pre or post the conflagration. In the dismemberments of Poland, the southern part of the country known as Galicia (which included Baranow) was annexed by Austria.
