JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Towns named Kosow #general
Thank you for your contribution to the subject.
I believe that it was obvious that I made reference to the "Jewish"
Kosow, after all I'm posting on the Jewish discussion group and not on
geographical association forum.
There is no evidence that beside Kosow Lacki (Polish Kosow), town
already known as Jewish community there remain in modern Poland any
other "Jewish" Kosow. There is no evidence that four Polish villages
listed in your post
All "other "Kosow listed in your posting and currently located in
Belarus and Ukraine have been already covered in my previous post.
Actually, intention of post to make Genners aware about existence of
Kosow in Czortkow region, since this town with large Jewish population
prior to WWI was not accounted as Jewish community and researchers
could confuse this town with one in Stanislawow Province.
BTW, since you have been counting all Kosow through Wikipedia, you have
missed five (5) towns named Kosov in Czechia, and three (3) in Russia
There is also bunch of Kosov in Albania, Bulgaria and few ex Jugoslavia

Alexander Sharon's topic of towns named Kosow is evidenced by the Polish
version of Wikipedia. If you search for Kosow (with an accent over the
second "o" which this forum does not allow me to type), you will find
many relevant entries for eastern Europe. As I have limited skills with
Polish, I leveraged Google Translate to provide some of these details.
Note that in all cases the accent over the second "o" of Kosow is missing
in the results. The page is here https://goo.gl/Jvw4hk
