JRI Poland #Poland Searching for relatives in Krakow Province #poland

Rivka Schirman <capitetes@...>

It seems that Samue Dawid FEIGENBAUM and his wife, Reizel born GLIEDMAN
had 2 more children, both born in the Province of Lwow
(see: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/jripl/jridetail_2.php):

Matel [ FEIGENBAUM / GLIEDMAN ] (M) was born in 1887 in Dublany,
registered in Zniesienie AGAD

Keila (F) [ FEIGENBAUM / GLIEDMAN ] was born in 1893 and registered in
Nawaria AGAD

In both cases, Krakow is listed not as place of birth of the children,
but as "town of mother", which might mean that Reizel and her parental
family were, indeed, >from Krakow but not Samuel Dawid .

If this were the case , it cannot be excluded that the couple itself did
not reside in Krakow, which will explain why you have hard time tracing
the Feigenbaum/Gliedman children in Krakow. If my own family can be used
as an example, my grandfather was born in Brody, my grandmother - in
Okopy Swietej Trojce, where they married in 1903. However, as my
grandfather was a bailif, they moved a lot and each one of their 5
common sons, was born in another town and sometimes also in another
Galician Province. Only around 1920 they moved back to Okopy and settled
there. So, it might reveal a good idea to search you Feigenbaum and/or
Gliedman outside of Krakow Province and more in the Lwow province.

I'm trying to find proof that my relatives lived in Krakow. They are
Schmuel David FEIGENBAUM, his wife, Reizel GLIEDMAN (possibly listed
under FEIGENBAUM), and their three children, Abraham FEIGENBAUM,
Friede (Frederyka possibly) FEIGEBAUM, and Yetta/Jetti FEIGENBAUM
(Hebrew name Yached). >from family history, I know the following:
Schmuel David and Reizel were married in 1872 (possibly only a
religious ceremony); Abraham died as a child of blood poisoning after
a bad tooth extraction; and Yetta was born in May 1885 in the middle
of a flood, and it took them three weeks to return to their home by
boat. (Her birth date was verified by her marriage record >from Lvov.)
After Yetta's birth, the family moved to Lvov--first Dublany and then

I have records >from when the family lived in Lvov, stating that
Reizel, Friede, and Yetta were born in Krakau. Yet, I'm unable to
find any of my relatives within the city of Krakow itself. I've also
gone through some of the censuses for Podgorze, as well. I am forced
to conclude that when they lived in Krakow, they meant perhaps Krakow
province, instead. But when I search the entire province on JRI, I
still can't find them.

I'd love to have suggestions for where to go next or what to do. The
best I can think of is going through Krakow province in concentric
circles out >from the city of Krakow, trying to find them in any
unindexed records.
