JRI Poland #Poland Re: "Chodiz" jri-pl digest: January 14, 2001 #poland


In a message of 01-14-01, Ashley Koptiko asked about a town which had been
noted in a census extract as "Chodiz."

Perhaps this notation stood for "Chodecz, or in Yiddish, "Chodetch" which is south of Vlotzlcwk. Chester G. Cohen's ShtetlFinder Gazetter says that it is mentioned in the yizkor book Vlatzlavek Vehasiva, 1967, and says that its old wooden synagogue is mentioned in the Piechotka's book on "Wooden Synagoges."

My 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer says that in Russian the town name
is "Khodech" and that it is located in the province Bydgoszcz in central
Poland, 17 miles south of Wloclawek. It was an agricultural market.
