BLUMSTEIN from Goworowo, Poland #poland #yizkorbooks
Looking for any information on the family of Velvel BLUMSTEIN and wife Fiege, formerly of Goworowo, Poland. Per the Yizkor book, the town was burned to include all the historical and vital records in 1939 and several people with the name BLUMSTEIN were lost in the Holocaust. Pages of testimony on Yad Vashem are not posted for most of them and only source for the names is the necrology list in the Goworowo Yizkor book. One of their children, Avram emigrated to the US via Canada in 1921, but did not share any family details with his children or grandchildren. Velvel BLUMSTEIN was a watchmaker and jeweler.

In the process of fully extracting the random surviving 19th century records of Ostrolęka, the
JRI-Poland volunteer discovered that they include the pre-1917 vital records of Goworowo.
A long-time mystery solved!
In addition, JRI-Poland received permission to inspect the surviving 20th century records for
various years between 1917 and 1936 in the Civil Records Office in the Goworowo town hall.
We used the opportunity to extract all the marriage and death records that are no longer
subject to Polish laws protecting personal data. While the births from 1920 to 1937 remain
private, we know which family names that appear in the births.
