Can't identify Polish town name #poland

Hi all,

I just received naturalization papers for cousin who states she was
born in Kolnszek, Poland. I have been unable to find this town in town
finder or the Mormon film list. Neither "Where Once We Walked" or
"Jewish Roots in Poland" list the town name.Could it be a Yiddish
name for Kolno or Kolo?

Thanks for any insight.

Norm,

Your Kolnszek, Poland could be Koluszki, situated east of Lodz. There
was a Jewish community there before the war, and a ghetto during the
war. The genitive case will be "Koluszek".

You may want to take a look at Koluszki, Poland as a possibility. The
town's coat of arms refers to "Koluszek" which is one letter off >from
the name of the town you have listed. It's located at Latitude: 51.75
Longitude: 19.8.

Good luck,
Moshe Steinberg
