Has anyone had experience in contacting or obtaining information >from this

I found a reference on their website to my great grandmother's sister, Golda
(LENCZNER) GRYNBAUM/GRINBAUM via a Google search taking me directly to the
page. >from a previous ITS requests, I learned that Golda died in Aug 1943,
Sosnowiec, circumstances not given. Her death certificate was generated in
1950 apparently through some court action in Sosnowiec.

The IPN listing appears to be reference to the court action. I obtained some
info >from the google translation option, but am not certain what it means or
if correct. The submitter/applicant is Josek Cyn GRINBAUM. Believe this is
Golda's son, who survived the war and changed his name to Charles/Joseph
PIROG and may have died in France in the 1990's. The listing provides some
information that I did not have previously about Golda's husband, Izrael
David GRYNBAUM. It gives his birth info as 13 XII 1880 (13 Dec 1880),
Bedzin. And it lists his parents as Joska and "Sury Geli" nee: FOGEL. It
incorrectly gives Golda's mother name as "Goldy" (s/b Gitel). The ITS search
for Izrael was negative, but is the claim of the listing that Izrael and
Golda died on the same day/location (15 Aug 1943, Sosnowiec)?

Obviously if not actually obtaining a copy of the document(s), I would like
to learn what information is available (circumstances of death, is Golda's
daughter, Brucha mentioned, etc.) I have emailed the site and am awaiting a
