Both of my grandparents list Tarnow as their place of birth on some
records but my grandfather lists Rozwadow as his place of birth in other
records. This was a small shtetl near Tarnow and I wonder if people just
listed Tarnow as place of birth since that was a larger city. I can't
seem to find any record of my grandmother's family in Tarnow which makes
me wonder which small shtetl see may have been from. Does anyone have
any ideas?

Rozwadow is not situated near Tarnow but is close to Tarnobrzeg. Sometimes
towns Tarnow, Tarnobrzeg and Tarnogrod are mixed up in people's records.
Perhaps this is a reason that records are not available in Tarnow. Rozwadow
is located on the outskirts of modern town Stalowa Wola, close to the old,
pre WWII Austrian-Russian borders and Kielce province.

To obtain records >from Tarnobrzeg area, you should contact archives in
Rzeszow, the capital city of Wojewodztwo (Voyevodship, Province)
Podkarpackie which encompasses Stalowa Wola and near by Rozwadow.

Hi Linda,

Don't forget to look in Yad Vashem. If the family immigrated to the US
then also check Ellis Island and the big commercial one. Also check
out Steve Lasky's museumoffamilyhistory.com for lots of resources
worldwide.

On our roots trip to Poland we visited Tarnow. It is easy to reach by
train >from Krakow. There are lots of well marked Jewish sites to see
their and the city info center will give you an English map. They have
helpful English speaking advisors in the info center as well. There is
a large intact Jewish cemetary but you need to get a key >from the info
center though my husband and kids jumped the fence.

Happy Hanuka,
Ellen MOSHENBERG

Hi,

I am new to the group (took a 12 year break >from research).

I was in Tarnow, Poland on March of the Living in April, 2012.

I have a lot of pictures and videos if anyone is interested.
