Looking for information about Wolf Garfunkel who came to America from Rzeszow some time after 1857.  Interested in learning about his parents (father was Shmuel) but don't have any information about his mother.  His first wife (my gg grandmother) died in Poland in the 1850s.  We think her name was Malka Bracha, but don't know any more details.  His second wife was Sima Raizel Grinbaum who ultimately came to America with him and her children. Interested in learning about any siblings he may have had. Wolf died in 1886 and is buried in Union Fields Cemetery in Queens.  I'm new at this so any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi Debbie,

If you search at:  https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/
for surname GARFUNKEL, in the region of Lwow, you will find records for Rzeszow. 

I spotted several records of births to parents Wolf GARFUNKEL and Sime GRÌNBAUM.

If you search you will find those, and you may find other records relevant to your family.

Good luck in your search,
