JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen "Dombrova", Galicia #general
In reply to Ric Cooper and Shelly ?...
Ric states the following: "Dombrowa is the Yiddish
pronunciation of Dabrowa (which incidentally means 'oak grove'). The two
most likely candidates are Dabrowa Gornicza and Dabrowa Tarnowska"
There is another candidate which is in the area of Galicia which is
currently Ukraine. I found this Dombrowa/Dombrova on an old map at
45'11'' / 24'27" location. My ancestor Rabbi Yitzhak Issac REIS was
from there.Be well,
