Can someone discern the names of the towns/cities shown in this image? I apologize for the small size, but it is a snip of a very large family chart.

Thanks

6/24/2013 10:25 PM rühr (h doesn't look right), glogau.
6/25/2013 5:42 AM birth place might be Zuelz.
6/25/2013 8:51 AM It would help to have more background on this family to establish these locations definatively, including the surname. It would also help to see other handwriting examples. It could be Eule as the birthplace with a very stylistic "E" and Glagau for the down of death. I suspect Glagau is the Glogau that is today in Poland, but was part of Prussia. Eule may be a small village or town in the area or it could be further away. It might not show up in the Jewish Communities database on JewishGen.
6/26/2013 5:46 AM Zuelz (u umlaut) and Glogau make sense. Both in Silesia.
6/26/2013 6:55 AM Biała, or Biała Prudnicka (German: Zülz) is a town in Poland, in Opole Voivodeship, in Prudnik County.

Głogów (German: Glogau, rarely Groß-Glogau, Czech: Hlohov) is a town in southwestern Poland. It is the county seat of Głogów County.

6/26/2013 11:09 AM Zülz / Zuelz (German) - Biala (Poland), 40 kms south west of Opole

Glogau (German) - Glogow (Poland)
The two places are 240 kms apart.
