Czchow, Gdow, Kobyle, Wieniec, Wola Batorska, etc.>> were buried in

More information about the Nowy Wisnicz Jewish cemetery can be found
on Jewish Cemeteries in Poland (, a site that was
very helpful to me on a recent trip to Polish Galicia.

On the other hand, this article in Haaretz mentions a Jewish cemetery
in Czchow: . The three people quoted
in the article appear to be on Facebook; perhaps you can message them
there for more information.

This site has good tourist information for the region:
