RECHT family of Poland research #poland

Hi, thanks for accepting my application to join.  I am researching  my RECHT family, from Poland, specifically, Jack (Jakob Gedalia), and his father, Yechiel Altar RECHT.  Jack changed his surname to Rich when he immigrated to the U.S. I've been trying to find birth certificates for them, but can't find anywhere. I'm wondering if someone can help me with info on this?  Thank you, Colleen Knol

Colleen,

Do you know what town Yechiel or Jakob were born?  Have you found passenger manifest(s) or naturalization papers?

If you're sure they were from a town in today's Poland you can search this database:

The existence of records varies greatly town-by-town.

Hi all, I should add that Jack's SS application has him from Lodz, but other family records are from areas around Kielce & Rado.  Also, Jack was born in April of 1917, and came to Canada with his father in about 1935-36, and lived in Toronto.

Thanks, Colleen Knol
