I have recently learned, through acquisition of my great great grandmother's death certificate, Newark, New Jersey, 1910, that my ggg grandparent's names are (may be) Jonas KURZ / KURTZ / KORETZ and Miriam BRACHFELD.
I thought these people lived in / came >from Rzeszow, Poland (then
Austro-Hungary), since this is where their daughter Gittel KURZ JACHIMOWITZ lived at least as early as 1858 when she gave birth to her first known child.
The Rzeszow records to which I have access, do not support this theory, and
I would appreciate hearing >from any researcher with information on or an
interest in the surnames KURZ and BRACHFELD >from the Rzeszow vicinity.
