Hi Pamela,

Thanks for that in depth research. I don't read Polish or German well
to figure out some of those things in the directories. Not everything is

I did see the Joseph Rosenblatt in the listing for Michalowka but did not
realize there were two Roswadows in Galicia. That would be confusing!
Joseph Rosenblatt and his wife and children came to the US around 1903 so
they would not be listed in the 1929 Galicia Directory. I don't know
about the other Rosenblatts. It is possible they all also left for America
before that 1929 directory was published.

In my reading and research on the Rozwadow near Tarnobrzeg I started
the feeling that I was looking at the wrong town. And maybe so.

I'd like to learn more about that "other" Rozwadow and vicinity, though.
Is there anything published in English?

Completely translated into English Rozwadow Yzkor Book (excellent
translation by Haim Sidor) which btw.lists two ex Rozwadow's Rozenblatt
residents in Israel.

and one of the best developed Jewishshtetlinks for Rozwadow (Shtetl Leader:
Peter A. Dreifuss) within the Kalbuszowa Region Reseach Group (Coordinator:
Susana Leistner Bloch

Best of luck in your search,
