JRI Poland #Poland Identification of Great-Grandmother's Birthplace (ViewMate 71015) #poland

Paul A. Auerbach

I have posted an excerpt >from the 1930 U.S. federal census purportedly
showing the birthplace of my great-grandmother, Esther Aronson.  It is
on ViewMate at the following address:


The name of the town in the census appears to be "Padavola, Poland." I
couldn't find any matches in the JewishGen Communities Database.  When I
searched the JewishGen Gazetteer, I found four Polish towns, Podbale,
Podwale (two towns with that name) and Podwole, all of which are within
150 miles of Warsaw. None of these towns appears to have a significant
Jewish population, and I didn't see a single entry for any of those
towns in JewishGen's Family Finder.

Any suggestions on how I might narrow down the possibilities? My
great-grandmother was never naturalized and I haven't been able to find
a passenger record for her, so this is all I've got.

Thanks very much for your help.
