It's been three and 1/2 years since you posted your inquiry and I guess that means that I haven't looked at these messages in a while. As I wrote to another person on this site, my father's family lived in a small village called Kikol. It is in western ( formerly Prussian ) Poland near a city named Torun. Does that mean anything at all to you? He and his older brother came to the US well before WWI. Their parents and sister never left. I have no information concerning when and how they died except for the fact that I was named after my father's father. Consequently, that means that he died before the Holocaust came to Poland.
