learn a lot about the Jewish Sororities.
I already sent letters to express my gratitude and want to add
B.Meyer,J.Sullins and E. Bloch whose emails I don't have.
Unfortunately I hav'nt found yet Glucksberg (no first name) who was
elected Vice President of Iota Alpha Pi in May 14 1942.

Rzeszow, Poland (Galicia, Austro-Hungarian Empire) births index on-line

Can anyone tell me if William was a name adopted by men born Boruch in
that part of the world, in the time frame involved?
It's quite possible. People who "Americanized" their names often
just took one that struck their fancy, without doing any etymological
analysis. They often tended to take a common name that had the same
initial sound, so here Boruch could become Bill, which then became
William.

Dating old photographs #general

Derek & Rosemary Wenzerul <dandr@...>
 

I typed in the words 'dating old photos' onto Google and it came up with
numerous entries but I looked at the following web site.

http://www.familychronicle.com/photoxtra.html

On this web site there are examples of photos showing the fashions from
1840,50,60,70,80,90 and 1900. This is very useful if you have a photo of
someone and can't date it - you may be able to compare what they were
wearing with the photographs shown.

Help tracing CHASKELBERG family of Warsaw #general

Maya Elbaz <elbazm@...>
 

Dear all,

I am posting this on behalf of my mother in law, a survivor from
Warsaw. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am trying to track down any surviving family of her mother, who
was killed in the Warsaw Ghetto around 1943, or was possibly on
one of the last transports >from the ghetto.
Dora JOSEFOWICZ, maiden name CHASKELBERG (or possibly spelled
CHASKIELBERG, HASKELBERG, etc.), born between 1910-1918 in
Warsaw, married Leon JOSEFOWICZ between ca. 1932-1936 in Warsaw;
they had an only child, my mother in law Gizela (Gila), in 1938.
My mother in law also remembers that her mother had at least two
brothers.
In addition, Leon JOSEFOWICZ served in the Polish army - my
mother in law is not certain if he was married before or after
his service.
There is no additional information whatsoever.

I note >from the excellent Routes to Roots Foundation website by
Miriam Weiner that the following records have survived for
Warsaw: Births 1898-1915 - at the state archives of Warsaw, and a
list of deaths at the Warsaw ghetto 1939-1942 at the Jewish
Historical Institute. Marriage and birth records for the 1930s do
not appear to have survived (or am I misinterpreting the data?
are they just somehow inaccessible?).

I would like to ask the experienced researchers how to find out
if they exist, and if so obtain - any records which might help
trace the Chaskelberg family of Warsaw. Do I write to the State
archives at Warsaw? In Polish or English? snail mail, fax, or
email? should I include any pre-paid envelope? do they require a
down-payment to look into such a request? are they likely to
refuse my request given that I do not have exact years of events?
I realize such questions have probably been asked before, but
please indulge me.

If anyone has any additional suggestions, I would be most
grateful.
