Advice needed - 20th century research #galicia

Henryk Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

Advice needed!

Galicia (and Poland) database give us at least some information up to the
end of the XIX century.

But the real divider is Holocaust, which had place about 40 years later.
Urzad Stanu Cywilnego in Poland provides only very specific data. For
instance, when asked about marriage of my aunt (I know her parents,
date and place of birth), the answer is that they I would have to know the
name of her husband (and, perhaps, other data related to him), which I
do not know. How can we search information about our ancestors >from
less then 100 years ago, without knowing them (which is a vicious circle)?

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help,

SELTZER from Trembowla #galicia

Milton Koch
 

I have determined that my paternal great-grandmother, Schlome SELTZER,
was born in Trembowa. Her father was Naftale. She married Chaim KOCH,
from Jagielnica. They lived in Potok Zloty thereafter.
I have located records of birth of Naftale SELTZER (born 1885) and his
siblings, >from Budzanow (Budaniv) which is very close to Trembowla.
His mother was Lea SELTZER >from Trembowla. Though I do not have Lea's
father's name, can I assume that her son (Naftale) may have been named
after her father - thus making her the sister of Schlome?

I have also found another Schlome SELTZER >from Trembowla who was
married to Feibisz ZUCKERMAN. Is it possible to have two women >from a
town having the same name?

Thanks.
