Hello – I am researching my husband’s family. His grandfather, known as Harry Ziegler (b.1867), emigrated to the US in the late 19th century from the village of Rostaje/Rostajne, near Nowy Zmigrod. I believe his name was originally Chatzkel. His parents were Hersch Ziegler and Gittla Kapner. They had several other children – I know about Naftali (Nathan – b.1869) and Anna (b 1873), both of whom also went to the USA, and Szyje (b 1879) and Roze (b 1882). I am looking for information about any of this family, and especially official records such as birth and marriage certificates. I would also appreciate advice about the best archives to use and how to find out more about the Jewish population in this area in the 19th C.
