Shtetl Malaszewiec, Poland #belarus #poland


I am looking for information on the shtetl called as Malaszewiec, Poland. It is near the towns of Terespol and Brest Litovsk. The map coordinates are 52*02' N, 23*32' E. When I search for Terespol, Poland on Jewishgen town locator, it appears on the map but it is not listed as a searchable town. My grandfather was born in Malaszewiec in 1902.  Where can I find information on the town or records of births and marriages?

Thank you,

Correct town name is Malaszewicze, Poland. Place is indeed located within 4 miles SSW distance from Terespol. Village was subdivides into two separate entities: Malaszewicze Wielkie (Large) and Malaszewicze Male (Little). During WWI about one thousand Jewish slave labours were forced to work on the construction of Luftwaffe airfield in Malaszewicze. Following the end of construction work, all Jewish slave labours have been killed in the nearby Kobylany.

Beside the JGFF Gazetteer entry for the village there is also single entry for Malaszewicze made in 2000 by researcher # 2002 for the surname Cheskes
