Steve Herberman asked about Sochaczew records. Sochaczew is also one of =
my
ancestral towns and I have researching it for over 16 years. =
Unfortunately
there does not appear to be any records that survived. In researching =
why,
I found some NY Times articles during WWI which describes the =
destruction of
the town-it's on the Berlin to Warsaw road and the town was destroyed =
during
both world conflicts. I presume the records pre WW l were destroyed =
during
the war.

I hired a professional genealogist some years ago and she looked into =
the
archives at Grodzisk Mazowiecki Branch where she found the following for
Sochaczew:
=20
Index to register of inhabitants without date (1920ies);=20
correspondence; attestations/testimonies ( someone declares they know of =
a
death or birth- however there is not necessarily the information=20
you expect >from a typical death record- such as parents names,=20
survivors, town of birth, etc.); ( this is how I obtained my great
grandmother's death attestation >from 1921)
Jewish workers (Judische Arbeiter >from Sochaczew)1941;=20
water charges >from the 1930's ;=20
municipal taxes etc.

This is the address of the archive:
