Searching lost relatives from Radzyn, Poland #general

Ada Holtzman <ada01@...>
 

Shalom,

This message is sent on behalf of a friend, Efraim Zamir
(surname changed >from Spiwak to zamir in Israel), who doesn't
have an internet access.

His father left Poland in the early 30s. The only remnant
of the family left behind is an old crumbling photograph of
Efraim's paternal grandmother whose maiden name was KAUFMAN.
She married Efraim Israel Spiwak, who is our Efraim's grandfather.
No other details about the family >from the old country are known.
Deep inside him, Ephraim believes there might still be relatives
of this family.

Thank your attention and great help and happy khanuka to all,

RACHLIN/BORISOV #belarus

Thanks to those who offered assistance.

Not sure if the Risa Davidovna Rachlina listed in the Borisov cemetary is
related- my ggf-'s father's name was David, though, so its possible it Risa
were a spinster. My great-grandmother was born ca 1885. If her husband
Issac Rachlin were of a similar age, Risa, born in '94 could have been a kid
sister... Hard to tell...

Apology If I have not responded #general

Phoebe Luise Nix <phoenixxph@...>
 

Happy Holiday Season To All.

If anyone has been waiting to receive a response >from me, I apologize for
not getting back to them.

My daughter was trying to install a game and my computer crashed just as I
was trying to backup my files. I have lost all the mail I was waiting to
answer.

I will never ever put off backing up files again. The one good thing about
having to rebuild everything is I figured out how to use View Mate.

Re: Paul Jacobi's records #general

Stephen T. Falk <sfalk81162@...>
 

Someone may be able to give an update, but I can report that they were
initially deposited with the Jewish National and University Library in
Jerusalem.

As of 1998, the JNUL did not have the financial resources to catalogue and
preserve the documents, or to set up the research room (with Dr. Jacobi's
records and library of books).

I do not know what has happened since then, but I suspect not much.
Substantial resources will be required to handle these materials.

Translation of Polish Documents written in Russian (VM185/186) #belarus

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

I am looking for some help in translating two marriage certificates which
have been posted on ViewMate (VM 185/186). These can be accessed at the site
www.jewishgen.org/viewmate. Ignore any references to their being in Polish.
Although they are Polish documents, they are written in Russian (cyrillic
script). One of the documents is for marriage of Chenich Kronman to Laia
Karo (akt 4). The other is for Gerzon Kronman married to Fajda Pinczewska
(akt 23). I am particularly interested in their dates of birth (or their
age), dates of marriage, their occupations and as much information available
for the four grandparents. I would be indebted to you, since I have no
knowledge of Russian. Thank you very much and best wishes.

1871 Census in England #general

I know the UK's 1881 Census exists on CD-ROM, but does anyone know if the
1871 version does too? If so, please can you advise me how comprehensive
it is and where/how I might get hold of a copy.
Many Thanks,

Searching RYDZ family from Poland, & a Success Story #general

HNRosen@...
 

Part of our RYDZ family >from Zareby Koscielne, Poland arrived in the US as
follows:

Father: Szlama, b 1880, arrived NY before 1920
Mother: Fejga, b 1876-77, arrived NY August 1920 with her children:
Szejna Rywka, b 1904
Basia, b 1909
Icek, b 1910

Szlama & Fejga are my father's uncle & aunt, the three children his
cousins. Anyone in JewishGen or JRI-Poland descended >from this RYDZ
family? (Please reply privately.)

Now, the success story that led me to this family and the discovery that
they came to America:

Some years ago, when I was starting the "quest", I asked my father (now
86) if he knew anything about his aunts, uncles or cousins. He reminded
me that he was the youngest of 7 children, the first 4 of whom had been
born in the "old country", and that his father had died when he was quite
young. He apologized for the fact that he did not know even if he had any
aunts or uncles.

Last week, I asked him if he remembered my "aunts & uncles" question of
several years ago, and what his answer was. He said, "Yes, I remember."

I handed him a list, the result of the tale described below. "These are
your uncles Leybko, Wolf, Mordko and Szlama. These are your aunts Tauba
and Fejga. These are your cousins Szejna, Basia and Icek. And, Dad, they
came to America by 1920."

How did I find out all this? In September(?) I attended a JewishGen
workshop at the Skirball Center, and was advised to check the JRI-Poland
database. I hadn't done so for quite some time. For the town of Zareby
Koscielne, I was referred to the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw as
a source of records not filmed by the Mormon Church. I saw that JHI-Warsaw
possibly held 90 such vital records of personal interest, in the family
names of Rozen, Rydz and Wierzba. I wrote them a letter (and enclosed a
check to their "Javne Fund", which is for archival preservation.)

Last week I received a very nice letter >from director Yale Reisner, and
two thick envelopes of photocopies. Not only did they send me the
photocopies, but they provided brief translations (names, dates, etc.).

So far, I have identified more than 15 of the records as definite "hits",
including the above aunts, uncles and cousins. Wow, it was like hitting
the lottery! I saw an identical notation on the simultaneous 1920
registrations of the births of the three cousins: "Late registration due
to father's departure for America."

Today I found Passenger Arrival soundex cards for aunt Fejga and the three
Rydz children. The film is ordered, and I'm on a new quest-- To find the
descendants of that family, and get them together with my father, their
first cousin.

So, Thank You to: JewishGen, JRI-Poland, JHI-Warsaw, and the wonderful,
dedicated people that make it all happen!
