Town of "Sakot" #poland

Danny Fantl <dannyfantl@...>
 

I am posting this message for a friend in Melboure, Australia. Her father
(surname Meyerovitz) told her that his parents were born in the town of
"Sakot". He doesn't know how it was spelt, and in fact doesn't know if it
was in Poland or Lithuania (or elsewhere?). He just knows his parents
verbally said they came >from Sakot (literally spoken "Sukot", with the "u"
pronounced as in the "u" of "umbrella".

My friend thinks Lithuania, as her grandparents travelled and settled in
South Africa, and then her father eventually came to Australia.

Has anyone any clues regarding the town and where it may be? I have
searched the ShtetlSeeker, and the closest I get is Saukoto in Lithuania.

Thanks,

BRISKER/BARNETT #general

zerakodesh@...
 

Hello
I found the BRISKER name on the Jewish poor Jews shelter in London. I
wonder if any one knows of this person. It is the name of one of my uncles
who changed his name to BARNETT in London, England.
He was listed as a baker. He seems to have come into the country twice
in the early l900s. He was my father's half brother.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Grodno is in Today's Belarus, west of Minsk. Odessa is several hundred
miles to the south on the shore of the Black Sea.

on the name Chadna #general

Marty Meyers <marty@...>
 

Hi,

I've just learned that my great-grandmother Chana Laia Bordowicz (nee
Zylberman) had a sibling Chadna Zylberman who eventually left Przasnysz and
settled in the Detroit area.

I'm assuming that Chadna is a female name?
Does anyone know the derivation of Chadna? Is is related to Chana?
Any idea what the american name might have become, say Hanna?


Thanks,

Marty

Allan-


On the topic of creating individual sigs for regions or shtetlach:

In doing so, we miss the benefit of shared learnings of the whole in a
region where Jews were always on the move. Create a Special Research
Group, sure, but how many people would benefit >from that group having its own discussion group versus the number that would benefit >from their
continued participation in the U SIG.

If you have a group of researchers interested, start a research group.

Create a Shtetlink, translate documents, contribute to databases, but
stay under the ageis of the U SIG, for everyone's sake.
