Who Do You Think You Are?

Paltrow's family's original name was Paltrowicz, a rabbinical family from northeastern Poland, specifically Suwalki, Lomza and other towns. JRI-Poland offers 90 records for the family.

Abq Jew did see last season's WDYTYA episode on Lisa Kudrow, and found it to be well-researched, entertaining, and incredibly moving:
Lisa Kudrow journeys to the small Jewish town of Ilya where she discovers how her great-grandmother died in the Holocaust. Yet, Lisa finds hope when she uncovers a 60-year old family mystery.
