Dear Mr. Preker
I have just started doing some research about my family's roots in
Poloand. They came from a shetl near Dembitz. In any case, I thought
you might be interested to know that My grandfather Solomon Klotz was
president of the Dembitzers Y.M.B.S. in 1915 and was later the secretary
of the organization. My grandfather is buried in the Dembitzer plot at
Mt. Hebron Cemetary.
I have found in my mother's home a booklet from a banquet held in 1915
with a photograph of I believe all the members at that time. I also
have papers and a record from the Dembitzer meetings . This record spans
from 1919 to 1939. Included in the records are two sketches of what
may be the then proposed entrance gate to the Dembitzer cemetary
plot. As I clean out my mother's home (she is moving) if I find other
things of interest I will let you know.
Finally, if you might have any information concerning the Klotz family
in Dembitz I would be interested. I have found only the name of Aron
Klotz (I believe my grandfather's brother) on a record of businesses in
the town of Biecz in 1891.
