Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Trying to locate Rocszowce #galicia
John Illingworth <illingw@...>
A letter has just come to light dated 23 October 1919 written >from Galicia
to England. It informed my grandmother of the demise of her husband who had
been deported back home at the beginning of WW1 as an enemy alien. Although
I have yet to get the letter translated, it appears that the place name from
where it was written is Rocszowce. But I believe they (Israel and Sarah
Reich/Rich) came >from Bolszowce (now Bolshovtsy). I have not found
Rocszowce. Help locating and knowledge of it would be much appreciated.
