Zagorochka near Chodorow #galicia

Has anyone encountered records concerning Zagorochka (49'23 24'19), which is
near Chodorow? This place also appears in the ShtetlSeeker under the names
Zagirochka and Zagurechko. What is its Yiddish name? Is it mentioned in
the Chodorow yizkor book? A KALTER relative of mine was apparently born
there around 1892, and his father supposedly still lived there in 1911.
Thanks very much.

Logan,

Zago'reczko, district Bo'brka (accented 'o' in both town names) was the
official town name till the end of WWII.

Vital documents for Zagoreczko are kept with all Bobrka region holdings in
Warsaw (USC Srodmiescie) or AGAD Archives.

Your family members have been residing in town during the interwar period
and during haShoah.

L. Kalter is listed as liquor/taverm owner in 1929 Poland Business directory
and Markus Kalter is listed in Lwow Ghetto list as a resident of farm
Molodyncze (near Chodorow).

To my best knowledge Chodorow Yzkor Book wasn't published.

I found an entry in my older edition of "Where We Once Walked" for
"Zagoreczko" in Poland. It had a pre-war Jewish population of (only)25. The book says
the Black Book says it is in the region of Lwow, but its name was not found in
the listings of the Board of Georgraphic Names.

I don't have a copy of the "Black Book of Polish Jewry", edited by Jacob
Apenszlak et al, eds. which may be the Black Book to which the editors of WWOW
referred, I have only the "Black Book of Russian Jewry" by Ilya Ehrenburg and
Vassily Grossman.

I didn't find an entry for any spelling of Zagorochka in Chester G. Cohen's
"Shtetl Finder Gazetteer.
