Re: locating stetl "Tuchna" in Galicia #general

My family (Barban on my mother's mother's side and Eisen on my mother's
father's side) came >from a stetl they called "Tuchna" in Galicia. I have been
unable to locate any mention of Tuchna and am wondering if anyone has any
info re the above or knows of a city located nearby. I remember as a child we
had a Tuchna family circle in New York City.

There's a Galician village pronounced Tuchna, it was spelled Tuczna in Polish
and Tuchne in Ukrainian (ch = "cheh", often transliterated as c with a
carat over it). It's just 5 or so miles southwest of Przemyslany (Polish) /
Peremyslany (Ukrainian), which in turn is some 20 to 25 miles southeast
of Lviv in Ukraine. (Don't confuse this with Przemysl in eastern Poland!)
It might be a long shot, as it had only an estimated 20 Jews out
of a population of 1650 in 1939.

A recent post (I don't remember whether here or to one of the SIG

God Bless your kind heart, Mr. Plotz. I am one of those many crazy Israeli
Jewishgenners who occasionally help others with Israeli Directory Queries
(at least, I do so when I have some time on my hands). About a year ago,
after receiving queries on the subject that you mentioned, I contacted the
Israeli "Bezeq" telephone company to ask them whether and/or when they would
set up an English on-line directory. Their reply to me was very similar to
the reply that you received.

It seems that the local authorities involved in the publishing of
online/offline directories in languages other than Hebrew, have been
planning/thinking about such directories for many years. They have, however,
apparently encountered many technical and linguistic problems regarding such
a project. It also appears that this will still take a long time to
finalize.

If there is anyone out there who knows how to overcome the various problems
quickly and easily, and is willing to invest the time and effort, you should
know that there is a huge potential market out there waiting for you.
Waiting for Bezeq, Godot, and all the other silly Bozos out there to do
something about it, will probably get you nowhere!

are there such names #general

Lili Susser <Susserl@...>
 

Dear Genners

I have encountered another problem with names.It is >from a translation of a
marriage
certificate in Russian.
1 ) Is there such a first name as Suher?
2 ) ( Rifpa or Rispra?) I take it as Ryfka.
3 ) Did anyone hear of a town Serpitza? It would have to be near Kowal or
Plock in Poland.
4) The document also states "Bozhnitzky scholar" What would that be?
Thank you in advance for any help

Marian Rubin
 

The Rzeszow Research Group and the Kolbuszowa Region Research
Group will hold consecutive Birds of a Feather meetings at the
NY conference on:
Tuesday, August 10
3:30 - 4:45 Kolbuszowa Region Group
5:00 - 6:15 Rzeszow Research Group
The room will be announced in the Conference schedule and in
a notice on the bulletin board.

The Rzeszow Research Group focuses on the city of Rzeszow.
The Kolbuszowa Region Research Group now includes towns
within a 30 mile radius of Kolbuszowa.

If you are researching families >from these towns, I hope you will
try to attend both informal meetings. It will give you a chance to
make contacts with the other researchers and to exchange
information. So many of our families had branches in several
of these towns.

Susana Leistner Bloch, coordinator of the Kolbuszowa Region
Group and I will attend both meetings. Learn about the Rzeszow
Group's projects, and bring your suggestions for projects. Let
others know about the work you have done. Or, let us help you
get started.

KASTENBAUM #galicia

FChenin@...
 

In the Nowy Targ yizkor book there is a picture of a family group. My
interpretation of the Hebrew letters is that it is the KASTENBAUM Family.
The man at the left end of the second row is Ignatz KASTENBAUM. When I first
saw the picture, I was thought that it was a picture of my uncle, Simon
Chenchinsky. My Father, Milton and my Uncle Joe have both seen the picture
and said, "That's my brother Simon.". Their mother, My grandmother, Regina
Buchbinder was >from Nowy Targ. Regina is the daughter of Solomon BUCHBINDER
and Miriam KLAPHOLZ/KLAPATZ. No one in my family has ever heard of
KASTENBAUM. Does any researching in Galicia know of a connection between
KASTENBAUM and BUCHBINDER or KLAPHOLZ/KLAPATZ.
