RTR lists 17 record groups available for Zloczow (see Zolochev),
including birth records for 1912-1942 in Fond 1022 at the USC (Urzad
Stanu Cywilnego) office in Warsaw

Note: The USC office (civil registrations) in Warszawa has documents
from towns formerly in Poland and now in Ukraine, including the area
of the former Eastern Galicia comprised of the provinces of
Tarnopol/Ternopil, Lvov/Lviv and Stanislawow/Ivano Frankivsk. This
material was formerly located in the Urzad Stanu Cywilnego
Warszawa-Srodmiescie office at 1/3 Jezuicka Street.

Poland's privacy law for birth records is 100 years. Your mother can
request a typewritten abstract of her own birth record (photocopies
of records less than 100 years old are not permitted). The response
will usually come back through the Polish Embassy or nearest Polish
Consulate. You can also visit the USC office in person or hire a private
researcher to visit for you. You can write in English and include a Google
translation in Polish. Google Translate < >
