Re: Search advice for family/records from Pilica, Poland #poland

Hi Helen,

Have you tried searching JewishGen Poland Database using a soundex search on the surname?

Names can get transcribed in surprisingly different ways.

There are some towns where there just aren't the extant records we wish there were.  My ancestor's town of Ustrzyki Dolne is one of those.  It makes taking our research back in time virtually impossible.

Try searching
for your family.  This page has digitized old city directories for Eastern Europe.  You can search by person's name, or by town name.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
