JewishGen ShtetlSeeker finds 41 Gorki towns in Poland.  Which Gorki are you
referring to, Kyle?  Do you know for sure which one it is?

There are many Grabow(e)(o) listings also, as you say.  If you were sure
which Gorki is correct, we could use ShtetlSeeker to look for towns with
similar sounds as Tzubela.  There are some possibilities, but they would
have to be close to the corect Gorki.

ShtetlSeeker is at http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/LocTown.asp

Jerry can probably give you some help if you send a scan of the marriage
record as he suggests.
