You are most probably searching for Zablocie near (ad) Zywiec. This used to be a
separate Jewish town near Zywiec (German: Saybusch), >from 1950 was integrated
within town Zywiec as the suburb.=20

Place is often mistaken as located in Krakow region due to its close proximity to
Krakow but it's actually administered by Slask (Upper Silesia) Province.

To make things a bit more complicated, vital Jewish records are indeed located in
Krakow but not in the traditionally lpcation such as Poland Government Archives
but in the Krakow National Archives. This is probably a reason, that many folks
cannot locate their ancestors records for Zablocie and Zywiec, please see
discussion forum archives on this subject.

You don't have physically schlep to Krakow to retrieve records, those days you can
do it through Internet by writing directly to Archives.
