I am privileged to be at last able to visit Poland where my whole family is from. They came to America around the turn of the century before the Holocaust. Any information about either of these towns would really be helpful. We are leaving this Saturday.

Try wikipedia for Szczawnica: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szczawnica or in Polish: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szczawnica . Also, see official town website: http://www.szczawnica.eu/ . We spent in this beautiful spa together with my wife one of our vacations not long after our marriage.

About Skałat, which before WWII belonged to Rzeczepospolita (Polish commonwealth) and now is within Ukraine borders, you can find plenty of information here: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ska%C5%82at . You can also try to search through results of our Polish Genealogy Databases tool: http://polishorigins.com/databases/index?s=ska%C5%82at

To translate pages in Polish try to use google translate http://translate.google.com/

Have have an unforgettable journey Exclamation
