Dear Bedzin researchers,

Please note that scans of all the pictures in "Pinkes Bendin" (the Bedzin
Yizkor book) now appear in its Yizkor Book site:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bedzin/bedzin.html

These pictures include the relevant captions and are a good way of looking
into our lost past and also perhaps, see pictures of people >from your own
family.

Likewise, please look at the "Pinkas Zaglembie" project:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Zaglembia/Zaglembie.html

which also includes pictures >from the Hebrew section of the book and, of
course, both these projects include translations >from the books.

All the best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Israel

Dear friends

I am a new member of the list and started reading all the interesting
details about the genealogical research written by the members of this list.
As a mater of presentation, I may say that I was born in Poland (Tarnow) in
1941 and my parents were Samuel (Shmulik - Emil) Weitz (Born 1905 in
Brzesko) and Rachel (Roza) Weitz born Hoffer - Heuberger (Born 1913 in
Tarnow).
I am now living in Israel after having lived in Hungary, Tchechoslovakia,
Belgium, Argentina Israel, US and again in Israel.
I was wondering if somebody could help me.
I was told that members of my family moved to the US in 1917. If somebody
has any reference or knows anything about the people I am researching
please contact me privately.
Thank you in advance for your kind help.
Pozdrawiam

Bernard Weitz

I am searching for a Donald J. ROSENTHAL family of San Carlos, CA. The
last item that I have on him was a cutting >from a March 12, 1959 newspaper
from the Patent Trader, MT. Kisco. He was a member of the department of
medical physics of the Universty at California at Berkely and had just
returned >from the World Health Organization under Sponsorship of the
International Atomic Energy Commission of the United Nations in Vienna. It
mentioned two daughters who stayed with grandparents David P. ROSENTHAL in
Somers, NY. He graduated >from Columbia, University and did his internship
and residency at Mt. Sinai Hospital. He wrote on Radiation, BIology and
Medicine. He had a twin brother Martin ROSENTHAL. I am fairly certain
they were of Romanian Origen.
I would greatly appreciate Anyone knowing the whereabouts of these cousins
or their descendents.

Dear Group;
I have a grandfather >from Lomza.I know the (very) approximate year he was
born. I found his name I always knew him by might not have even been his
family name.(He changed it after coming to the states.)The way the Polish
Archives works, would this be enough information?
Thank you very much,
David Edelman.
As unlikely as it sounds, I found my own grandparents with no more
than you know about yours, or rather they were found by an extremely
knowledgable user who recognized the combination of their given names
when I was an utter newbie; when the smoke had cleared away, the tale
was even posted as a success story on this forum. I knew only given
names for both grandparents; I had a mistaken idea of his original
surname and no notion of hers; I didn't know what town they were from,
only Lomza Gubernia (and you probably don't know either whether your
grandfather meant he was >from Lomza town or Lomza Gubernia any more
than I did).

With what you know, unless your grandfather had a given name bordering
on the unique, you don't have anything to search archives with (could
you find someone in any US vital statistics office with as little to
go on?). But if you post here whatever you know about his
pre-imigration life, you just may luck out as I did, and someone may
recognize some bit of identifying information.

Depending when he changed his name and where he was when he did it,
you might try finding him in the appropriate Polk's City Directory by
the name you know, and work backward until the name disappears to be
replaced by his earlier name. If, on the other hand, he changed it
soon after entry into the US, you probably won't find it. Others may
have other suggestions in the same spirit.

looking for Martin ABRAMS in CA #general

Howard Zakai
 

Genners,

This may be a lost cause, but I am looking for my mom's 1st cousin
Martin ABRAMS, born abt. 1936 in NY, and moved with parents Alex & Anna
ABRAMS in the early to mid-1940s to Gardena, CA. Alex, my grandfather's
older brother died in 1955 and was cremated. I do not know if wife Anna is
still living. There are three listings for Martin Abrams in California,
none of which is my cousin. There are about 50 listings of the same name
nationwide.
My last effort is trying the LA Recorder to see about obtaining records
for Anna Abrams. There are 2 on the CA Death records website by that name.

Any help is welcomed. Thank you in advance.

Searching for names: Sirkow and Neckowitz(or Natkovitch) and Dumas #general

Sandie SG <sandiesg@...>
 

Hello!
I'm looking for anyone who has these surnames or anyone who might know of
them. I posted to a geneaology group recently and a man whose grandmother's
surname was Sirkowa wrote to me and asked me if we might be related. Could
this be the Russian feminine version of Sirkow? My family came >from the
Ukraine, my grandfather >from a little town that was called Nikolaev, I
believe it's still called that and my grandfather came >from Kiev.

Also, is there a possibility that the name of Dumas could be a
Russian/Jewish name? That is the surname of my great-grandmother >from
Nikolaev in the Ukraine. Her name was Tamara Dumas, but everyone apparently
called her Mary. There is a story in my family that the Dumas comes >from
French relatives, but we don't know that for sure at all.

If anyone could give me any information on any of this, I'd much appreciate
it. You can email me privately, at sandiesg@aol.com or post it here. I
check this board quite often.

Take care and thank you all!
Sandie S. Gibson
