David Perle was seeking information about Kalisz and his ancestor, a rabbi,
who originated >from that town.
I would suggest that David reviews the Polish vital records that may exist
about his ancestor; as family tradition is always a helpful guide but
unfortunately is no substitute for the hard graft of research.
A lot of work has been done to index the Jewish records of the town and this
information can be accessed via http://jri-poland.org/town/kalisz.htm .
Also a very good source for general information on Jewish Kalisz (pronounced
Kalish) is the Jewish Virtual History site page for the town at
