Lomza, Ruscian, and Rozan #poland

Mark_J._Schwartz@...
 

I am new to the mailing list and have a quick question. My
great-grandmother's brother lists Lomza as his birthplace on his
naturalization papers, and his last residence prior to emigration as
"Ruscian, Russia". On my great-grandmother's death certificate it
lists "Rozan, Russia" as her birthplace. Is it possible that Ruscian
and Rozan are the same places? If they are the same, where is in
this in relation to Lomza. Thanks

Re: Help on Polish Name #poland

In my family, men with the English name Charles have the Hebrew name
Yehezkel (hard "h"), which, in Polish, is Chackiel (pronounced
"Hots-keel", again with a hard "h").

Chacek for short! ;-)

Hope this is helpful!

Sir or Madame;
On 22 Oct 2000, a message sent >from Robyn Perlin to your Group stating
that the Trakai District Research Group had made a contribution of 544 newly
acquired records.
This list includes the Town of Punia. Can I obtain either the entire
list or just that for Punia.
Is this clear enough?

Where do I appeal for help?

I recently received a typed/computerized, certified copy of an 1898
birth record >from the Morrissey Boulevard Archives. Is this the
practice, or will they re-send a photocopy of the original certificate
upon request? The sheet sent to me even lists the Year, Volume, Page
and Number of the Certificate. Thanks to all, Carol Raspler, Delray

after the pogram in Kishinev sometime in 1903. Perhaps this is
the town that you are looking for.
