Looking for BIRNFELD from Glogow and SCHWARZ from Tarnobrzeg #galicia

Tsiporah Trom

Dear Jewishgenners,


I am looking for descendants of Yona and Gittel BIRNFELD from Glogow;

and descendants of Majer David and Gitel/Tova SCHWARZ from Tarnobrzeg.


Rachel BIRNFELD (daughter of the former) was born in Glogow ca. 1880.

She married Abisch SCHWARZ (son of the latter) who died in 1915 captured by the Russian troops.

They lived in Tarnobrzeg where their children were born. After her husband's death, she apparently returned to Glogow.

She was a shopkeeper and was murdered in the Holocaust.

Rachel also had a brother, Szmul, who perished with his family in Lemberg (wife, Riwka, children: Majer, Aharon, Feige, Miriam, Moshe, Muni).

I am looking for other possible siblings and their descendants.


Abisch had a brother Berl who perished with his family (wife, Sarah, children: Szeindel in Karlsruhe, Ester and Gecel).

And he had at least two other siblings: Bina b. 1874, Moshe b. 1876.

I don't know their whereabouts. And if they had any descendants.

If you know anything about these families, please contact me.

Best regards,
