My Maternal grandfather, Leon Chaim is from the Rzeszow-Debice area.
spent his adult life in Krakow and Katowice however.
His mother's ( my
maternal ggrandmother) maiden name was Taub.
My grandfather emigrated to the US
after the Holocaust but had lost contact with many members of his family who
had emigrated to the US earlier in the century. He was the only survivor in
his immediate family, most of whom remained in the Debice-Rzezow area.
Thank you so much,

Yes, we are related, but probably at least 4 or 5 generations upward, as this
part of our family left Debica 3 generations ago. I first contacted Shlomo, who
gave my address to his sister Amalia, who currently lives in the States, and she
called me about 3 weeks ago. We checked all known connections together, and she
got all the details I could give her, including your site.

Dear Mr. Perker:
My name is Amalia Taub , My family came from Crakau Poland. I do not have
much information about the Taub family since my father never wanted to tell
us. I have a brother Shlomo Taub living in Israel. My father was Chaim Hirsch
Taub born in 1904 in Crakau. He had two brothers Michael David Taub, and
Mottle Taub. My Grandfather was Shlomo Taub born in 1878 near Crakau.My
great-grandfather was Naftali Hersch Taub married to Hinda Lea Fendler. The
only information my father left with us was that his family came from
Dembitza Poland. I will be very greateful for any information or contacts
you have .

My name is Jenny Taub, and I am the daughter of Joseph Taub (son of
Natan Taub) from Debica. I live in Jerusalem, and would be delighted to
exchange information with you. As a matter of fact, we held a first meeting
of all the remaining great-grandchildren of Moshe Taub, Natan's father, ...
only yesterday, and it is a pity that I found this site only today.
I was born in Paris after the war, and came to Israel 20 years ago. I have 3
first-cousins in LA (USA), 2 in Israel, as well as several 2nd-cousins, and
I have an enormous genealogic tree which goes back 5 generations (although I
don't have much information about the 2-3 first generations, and none at all
beyond that). Part of the information I received from my late uncle, part
from other living relatives (my own father never spoke much about all this),
and part, of course, from the Debica book.
I hope to hear from you soon.
