Stopnica district, Kielce Province.

There are 6 entries for town Kurozweki in JGFF database.

As you searching for Wajswol ancestors throug JRI-P database, please review
Kielce and Radom Guberniyas, since the border between those administration
regions was close to Kurozweki, and shtetl's records are located in Stopnica
(Kielce) and in Staszow (Radom). Other Wajswols have been concentarting in
