Wolk/Wolf in Koszowka, Poland

Wolk/Wolf in Koszowka, Poland

Surnames: Wolf, Wolk
That town is west-northwest of Warsaw(about 20-30 min drive I'm guessing) near the christian town of Kampinos. Any ways, most of the family emigrated to the U.S. in the 20's. I am sure that I do not have all of the family and was wondering if any that stayed in Poland got swept into the Warsaw ghetto's by the Nazi's?

First off, thanks for the info. I have those links and I have some trouble using them. I do not like the layout. I have to give props to Ancestry, love the site...good layout. Two, jewishgen shows that there is a town Koszowka that was also in the Russian Empire(pre1900) and now in Ukraine. I will have to try that line next. My grandfather always identified himself as Polish and not Russian.

I have attached ship records just so that you can see where I got the info.

Three, I have people on my fathers side of the family that are listed with YadVashem.org The 'rich' relatives stayed in the old country and that is where the Lithuanian Nazi' killed them. Four, I did not know that the Red Cross is involved in tracing ancestors. I will check them out.

Thanks

many jewish families were lost before 1900 in the pogroms.similar to the german Acktions and final solution.

Hope you are successful with the red cross tracing service . The jewish newsletter "Nu"out of Avotaynu claims they are more helpful now.

Hey, thanks for the reply and the info. I talked to the Polish/American Genealogical Society and they think that it was never Wolk but a type from Wolf.

An index of over 14 million names of victims and survivors of the Holocaust is kept and maintained by the International Tracing Service (ITS). This repository was created at the end of World War II in Arolsen, Germany, and is currently administered by the International Committee of the Red Cross **for the purpose of "assembling, classifying, preserving, and evaluating personal records on former persecutees of the National-Socialist Regime" (International Tracing Service, pp. 2-3).
As information was released after World War II, the ITS created index cards to refect what was known about individual victims and survivors of the Holocaust (both Jewish and non-Jewish) (International Tracing Service, pp. 3-4). This process continues today as more documents are released. Currently this index consists of over 46 million pieces of information kept in the ITS archives.

To access the ITS master index of names:


1.The ITS can be contacted directly,
2.The ITS can be contacted through the services of the American Red Cross, or
3.Copies of ITS records from the 1950s can be accessed in the Yad Vashem archives (Mokotoff, p. 20).
