Re: "City Hall" (USC), Poland - Quite a Difference in Pricing #general

Michael McTeer <desrx@...>
 

I thought my previous post of 2/14/2003 concluded my thread. But......

I sent a note of 'apology' to USC Sosnowiec for my 'misunderstanding'. I
would not have requested the documents at 35USD each had I known they were
that costly. They were helpful and provided me with birthdates/document
references of three of my great grandmother's children which I did not have
previously. I thought also that perhaps the documents had been 'certified'
which accounted such a price.

Apparently I am not the only one surprised at the cost as they responded:

"Your certificates in Poland cost (5x15 PLN )+5 PLN = 80 PLN ( 20,50 USD
for all )."

This is of course quite a difference >from the 175USD 'bill' I received from
the consulate.

Up-and-down Pisha Paysha #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Genners

My maternal grandmother (born 1866) who appears on the 1874 Revision List
on JewishGen Database for Zeimiai (not far >from Kovno) in Lithuania and
who lived in Manchester UK used to "command" me (in her borken English
accent) to sit down and play "up-and-down pisha paysha" with her when I
was a teenager.

Did anyone else play "up-and-down"???

Seeking Krysia and Janka MONTAG of Lodz #general

Alan Glixman
 

Dear group

I am trying to find out about two girls who were related to my family.

They were Krysia (Krystyna) and Janka (Janina) MONTAG.

I believe that they were both born around 1921 and in the 1930s they lived
in Lodz. Krysia was the cousin of Janka.

I believe that at least one of them went to Prysewiczuvna Girls School in
Lodz.

Would anyone who knows anything of them please contact me privately.

With thanks

Lookup in NY 1920's City Directories #general

Vivian308@...
 

Dear Genners,

Can anyone with access to the New York City Directories around the year
1923 do a lookup for me? A possible relative, Frida CHATZANSKY, is listed
on the EIDB as going to her family, D. TCHACONSKY (written CHAKANSKY above
this), at 1719 Sterling Place, New York City. It is not specified which
part of the city. She came on April 17, 1923.

I have searched the 1920 and 1930 Censuses, and have not found anyone at
that address. CHATZANSKY has many variations. My grandfather changed his
name to CHECANSKY, which has been spelled as CHACANSKY, CHECONSKY,
CHIKANSKY, or other variants.

Also, does anyone know what is at that address today?

Thank you very much for any help you can give me. Please e-mail privately.

A cautionary tale of failure and success #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I now add a cautionary tale of failure and success:

In my search for my FRESCO cousin, I made a little web page with all the
details I had for my missing cousin. Later, I saw a Family Finder listing
for FRESCO, wrote a simple letter, told about my cousin, and received a
quick note saying--"That cousin of yours was my grandmother!" I informed
my father of my discovery--the last of his missing cousins on the family
tree of his mother! Then there was some sadness when we learned that this
first cousin of his had died some years ago. I spent many hours getting
letters to our new FRESCO cousin translated in Portuguese, and I had a
friend try to contact him by phone. Over the weeks, something sounded a
little fishy: He knew all about his grandmother (my cousin)--but not much
more than was printed on my own web page. After weeks, he started to
invent family members, and I realized it was all a hoax--and quite an
embarrassment for me to inform my father that his newly found (but
deceased) first cousin was still missing!

Herein lies the moral: It might not be the best idea to tell everything
you know? Well, of course I will pour out all the details! What then:
Beware of hoaxes? No, frankly, I don't know what the moral is. But a bit
of caution in new discoveries is certainly useful!

In all, I was helped in my search by many people, over the space of many
years, including assistance (again, and again, and again) by several
tireless members of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive (France). In the end,
I am happy to say, I was successful.

My parents had a total of 70 first cousins! I have now found all but one
of them. The last one? Sure, I have taken the usual risk of putting what
I know on the web! Here:

http://www.kazez.com/~dan/missing/kazez.html

At last, my Paris/France/FRESCO/ROYERE search has ended--and happily.
After several years of searching, and several years of receiving help
from many people, I found my cousin, and received a letter >from her
today. I am happy to retire this search and move on to other exciting
searchers!

MODERATOR NOTE:
Sharing success is one of the best ways of helping
others to keep on researching since it demonstrates
that with persistence and a little bit of luck it is
possible to make those wonderful connections and in
many cases connect with family long separated, or
even previously unknown.

Leibe could also be short for Leibel pronounced "label" which in turn is a
diminutive for Lev which is German for Lion and thus a kinui for Arye.
