Roots Trip to Poland - September 2007

This September my family and I are planning a roots trip to Poland. We will be visiting most of the towns that have relevance to our family plus of course Warsaw, Krakow, Auschwitz and also touristy places such as the salt mine near Krakow and the forest near Bialystok. The itinerary is on the connected website at http://stawiskijewish.googlepages.com/upcomingstawiskitrip-2007

My maternal grandparents and their extended families were from Stawiski and Lomza in the northeast. My paternal great grandfather was from Kolbasov, Poland but that today is in the Ukraine and not Poland. My husbands family was from Plonsk and Tarnow. They relocated to Legnica after the war where they lived until immigrating to Israel.

We will be traveling by train from Warsaw to Krakow but renting a car to get to the rest of the places.

To help prepare for the trip I have been trying to learn a bit of Polish and have even found a private tutor who will soon be giving me lessons. It is easy to learn words but not so easy to pronounce them!!!

I would be happy to hear from anyone elseplanning a trip or suggestions from anyone who has already done one.

Hi, there is in Poland (Podkarpackie Province-Wojewodztwo) a town Kolbuszowa with many variant names in Yiddish: Kolbasov, Kolbasuv, Kolbishov, Kolbushov, Kolbushova. For example קאלבאסאוו . Before the World War II half of population was Jewish. So, it's possible that your Kolbasov is still in Poland, near Rzeszow, Lizhensk, Tarnow and Ropshitz.
Greetings from Poland :)
