Tony, 10 years ago I visited the website of Pacanów, the shtetl of my mother's family. All in Polish, but I saw "gazeta" and sent an e-mail in English, asking for information about the former Jewish community. I had a good surprise. Plenty of data from the historian of the city of the Jewish life there, including testimonies of witnesses of the day of the deportation, the names of the traitors that drove the Nazis into the city, pointing where the Jews live, etc. I put him in contact to other survivor from Pacanów, here in São Paulo, and he collaborated for a biographical book written by his daughter. This is my suggestion: why not try a contact like that?
