I was so excited to receive my grandfather's (Harry HIRSCH) birth record
from Poland!I wrote the inital request several months ago and received a letter
directing me to the proper office. After re-sending my request, I
received the birth record less than 2 months later. However, I'm in a
dilemma over the town in which my grandfather was born. He always said he
was >from Grybow (map: 49 38 20 57) but his neice, who is the only survivor
of the Holocaust, now living in Israel, has told me that the town was
actually Skrzyzsow (map:49 59 20 57). The actual birth record lists the
town as Strzylawka. The problem I have is that there is no mention of
this town in "Where Once We Walked", and nothing in Shtetl Seeker. Any
and all opinions will be most welcome!
