I am sorry, I missed the first mail about this question, and maybe my
answer is not pertinent.
1- Concerning the Hollanderskis in Paris, at least 2 of them have been
naturalized during the 19th century :
Leon, has been naturalized in March 14, 1871, he was in Paris since 1843
David has been naturalized December 23, 1899, he was born in Paris, but his
father Ephraïm was born in Suwalki and married in Paris in 1859.
I can give more informations about them privately.
2- About the Jews >from Suwalki in Paris: Paris has always been a great
center for Jewish migrations >from Eastern Europe. Some of them just stayed
some times and went farther (to USA), some settled down.
16.5% of the foreign Jews who married in Paris in 1848-1857 were born in
Poland or Russia, they were 29 % in 1868-72, 57% in 1895-1897.
Of the 1200 Jews naturalized 1815-1900 I studied, 260 were born in
Poland/Russia. 10 arrived in France before 1830, 30 in1830-1847, 45 between
1848 and 1869, 48 between 1870 and 1879 and 127 in 1880-88.
According to Michel Roblin ("Les Juifs de Paris: Demographie, economie,
culture", Paris, A et J. Picard, 1952), there was 4,000 Russian Jews in
Paris in 1880-1901 and 10,000 in 1901-1914.
A lot of books have been written about this Russian/Polish migration to

In the Lomza periodical a few months ago, there was a list of people from
Suwalki who were married in Paris, France, that is.
I wonder whether Paris was the place to go to marry, if you had enough
money. The list was quite long.
