Poland birth record #general


Foodphile@...
 

I was so excited to receive my grandfather's (Harry HIRSCH) birth record
from Poland!
I wrote the inital request several months ago and received a letter
directing me to the proper office. After re-sending my request, I
received the birth record less than 2 months later. However, I'm in a
dilemma over the town in which my grandfather was born. He always said he
was >from Grybow (map: 49 38 20 57) but his neice, who is the only survivor
of the Holocaust, now living in Israel, has told me that the town was
actually Skrzyzsow (map:49 59 20 57). The actual birth record lists the
town as Strzylawka. The problem I have is that there is no mention of
this town in "Where Once We Walked", and nothing in Shtetl Seeker. Any
and all opinions will be most welcome!

The place Meryl is looking for is the small village "Strzylawki."
It is about 4 km west of Grybow on the road to Nowy Sacz. It is
not unusual for immigrants to refer to the nearby larger town in
conversation as well as records created in their new country.
