Brody:

There are no records >from Brody in the AGAD collection. However,
according to Miriam Weiner's "Jewish Roots in Poland," the Warsaw
Civil Records Office holds the register with the 1941-1942 deaths.

There are Brody registers in the Ukrainian archives in Lviv.

Sucha:

There are no listings of Jewish records of any type in either Miriam
Weiner's book or the Polish State Archives inventory.

I'm not sure I'm confortable with the degree of censorship

Has there been significant abuse, in the past, of a more
free-ranging set of conversation

my response below

This is not a complaint but I belong to various other digests besides
this one and this digest has more censorship than any others That I
belong to - I dont believe my other digests censor much at all or its
minimal - I know my other digest rarely censor topics or material -
only arguements which should be taken off-line so not to subject
everyone to infighting and childish name calling.
Most of my other digests send batched postings instead of many little
ones - I forget if that is a option here - at the time I signed up I
dont remember a choise.
Anyway this is an excellant digest but I would like to SUGGEST less
censorship I remember being questioned by the censors at least on 6
different occaisions.
One censor had not understood the infomation and its significanse -
they should have it was not difficult. I had to send several emails of
explanation before the censor understood and agreed to post. Other
times it was suggested I contact someone directly that perhaps the
information might not have general interest.
<This has not happened to me for some time now> so I suspect things have
improved. I am for censorship which [I prefer the term moderator] with as
little censorship as possible unless problems develop.

Many Thanks you people do a great job I am not trying to say otherwise -
just hoping for less BIG BROTHER watching - you are moderators not
overseers.

All the Best -Steve Rivkin
