Swiety Michal Archaniol

świety Michał Archanioł (St. Michael the Archangel) is a Byzantine Catholic cemetery associated with the parish of the same name in Dubne, Gmina Muszyna, Nowy Sącz County, Malopolskie Voivodeship, Poland. It was used as a burying ground for native Lemko Rusyns in Dubne until just after WWII, when the government forcibly resettled the Lemko population to other areas of Poland and the Soviet Union to "cleanse" the area of its non-Roman Catholic Rusyn minority. Today there is only one Lemko gravestone remaining.

The associated church of the same name was founded in 1673 and records of burials begin in 1782. The church building which still stands was built starting in 1853 was renovated in 1928. It was converted to Roman Catholic use for a time after WWII.

In records from 1785-Jun 1818, only burial dates are given in the church records. From October 1818 on, death and burial dates are supplied.
