Hello, I just discovered my great grandparents immigrated from Wreszow Kolbuszowa? and Wola Lubecka Tarnow?

Could someone give me some information on either of these places? I can't find ANYTHING about Wreszow Kolbuszowa

Thank you!

Check out:,_Lesser_Poland_Voivodeship

The only thing even close to Wreszow in that area is Wrząsowice.

Rzeszów is geographically quite likely. Maybe the initial 'w' was actually a fancy curlicue whcih someone misread. And it is Kolbuszowo, not to be confused with Kołbaskowo which is at the opposite end of the country in the Baltic coastal region.

mstapor1, here are the links to the ones you are missing since Polonius gave you the link to Wola Lubecka already.

Kolbuszowa between the wars

Does anyone know about this village between the wars, my grandfather came from there, he was Polish/Ukrainian. I heard there is an open air Ukrainian museum there now.

I'm curious who the nobles were who owned the land, I believe it was the Zamoyski's but am not sure.

See some sites:

This is coming a little late, but I am just beginning to research my family from Kolbuszowa. I believe that Wreszow is a misspelling and what you are looking for is Rzeszów (I can't include links in my post, but you can do a wikipedia search) which is a neighboring county of Kolbuszowa. Kolbuszowa is both a county and the county's capital town. has Roman Catholic church records for Kolbuszowa, if your family was Catholic you might be able to find them in there. Do a search for "Kolbuszowa (Kolbuszowa), Rzeszów, Poland" and you'll find microfilm that you can request.

Hope this helps!

Seeing the title, first I have read the town name as Wieruszów - it's located in the central Poland. But if the other towns lay nearby each other, it's rather not the case.
