This branch came from Synowodzkowyzne. Stryi and Bolechow are within a 10 mile radius of Synowodzkowidzno. Stryi is the home town of two branches whose data are still not on this Site. Bolechow is the home of a branch presented here. Except for Jacob Turteltaub, all members of the branch were murdered by the Nazis.
Jacob survived a concentration camp and, after the war, went to Ecuador. The political situation on Ecuador was, at that time, very unstable. Jacob decided that, after surviving a concentration camp, he was not going to run more risks. Thus, he emmigrated to the USA.
