name of the town Zaloszce??? >>

According to the Jewish Genealogical Society (New York)'s Burial
Society Database

the First Zaloshiner Chevra Anshei Bnei Achim was associated with
Dzialoszyn, Poland, not with Zaloszce. The Zaloshiner society had
sections at Cedar Park Cemetery in New Jersey and at Mount Judah in
Queens, as well as at Mount Zion. Dzialoszyn was a shtetl in what was
Russian Poland. More about the town is here:

JGS's database also lists groups that were associated with the town
that was Zalozce, Galicia, and is now Zaliztsi, Ukraine. They include
the Erste Zalozitzer Kranken Unt. Verein, the Independent Zweite
Zalozcer Kranken Unt. Verein, and others. Read about Zalozce/Zaliztsi

An aside: According to the JGS home page (, JGS webmaster
Steve Stein, who was instrumental in the recent update of the
landsmanshaft database, will "give a tour of the new website,
including databases, resources, archives, and membership functions" at
JGS's next meeting -- Sunday, June 26.
