Place of birth: Sokelnice #austria-czech


Fellow Genners

On a visit to London I recently found the resting place of my Great Great
grandmother and >from her gravestone we discovered she was born Selina
(Tsina) GOLDFARB. She was born about 1869 +/- Died in 1918 her father was
Hyman/Chaim GOLDFARB. Selina Married Lazarus/Lazar ROSENGARTEN.

We know little about where our Goldfarb's originated >from but we believe
Selina and Lazar left Austria in around 1916 and went to England.

I discovered that in my grandfathers naturalistion papers (that were
processed 1923) he stated he had been in the UK 6 years A Subject of Austria
and Place of birth Sokelnice. I ran Sokelnice through the ShtetlSeeker and
came up with Jakling and Jochlong. Both where rejected by the JGFF as
questionable town names.

Having hit the wall I am looking for ideas how to go further?

Any tips or help you can offer would be much appreciated?
