Thomas J. Crosby - Sohrau / Zory - BORINSKI #general

SFalk81162@...
 

I am looking for information on a BORINSKI family >from Sohrau, Upper Silesia - now Zory, Poland. The family was also in Breslau, Germany - now Wroclaw, Poland.

I was trying to reach Thomas J. Crosby who registered his interest in a BORINSKI family >from Zory, Poland on the JewGen "Family Finder". The e-mail address he used back in 2000 appears not to be active any longer.

If anyone knows of this Thomas J. Crosby or his family, I would like to learn how to reach him or his family. Thank you. Please respond privately to: sfalk81162@aol.com

Re: Polish Magnate for Nova (Novaya) Ushitsa, Podolia Gubernia #general

edward konig <konige@...>
 

Meaning of 'x'

The Polish alphabet has letters that don't appear in Western European fonts.
They do appear in Central European fonts. So it's pretty obvious what's
happening. Whenever such a letter appears, they replace it with an 'x',
assuming that the reader knows enough Polish to figure out what the right
letter should be.

For instance, in "Wxdzimierz", the 'x' stands for an 'l' with a cross
through it (plus an 'a'), pronounced as English 'w', and in "Jxef", the 'x'
stands for an 'o' with an 'accent ague' over it, pronounced as English 'oo'.

I don't know what the 'x' in "Kxki" stands for, though. Just ask the senders
for a more detailed explanation - they know what the original was, and it
certainly wasn't 'x'.

645 Blake Ave., Brooklyn (Brownsville Section) , Kings Co., NY #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

It is a very small world as I have experienced before via a posting in
Jewishgen and I am hoping once again that someone will recognise this
address.

645 Blake Ave. was a few buildings in >from the corner of Pennsylvania Ave.
It is now an empty lot. I have looked at all the pertinent libers for the
block and lot at the Land Registrar in downtown Brooklyn and am hoping a
genealogical miracle can occur again and I can find a fellow genealogist who
had mishpocha at this address (or the flanking buildings 643 or 647 Blake
Ave).

Sincerely,

David Priever

Re: Jewish Community in Managua, Nicaragua? #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Sy Gelbard is travelling to Nicaragua and couldn't "find anything about a
Jewish Community in Managua even though" Sy "heard that there is one there."

"Trying to rouse Nicaragua's dormant Jewish community" is an article on the
subject. It mentions how the author had to travel to a neighbouring country
for a religious service after trying to find Jews in Managua to celebrate
the High Holidays. "Bought a bus ticket to Costa Rica and went to services
at a synagogue in San José". "Costa Rica was a 12-hour bus ride away."
http://www.myetone.org/sandinista.html

According to the web site of the World Jewish Congress, Nicaragua has a
population of 4,238,000 which includes not more than 10 Jews, after reaching
250 in 1972.
http://www.wjc.org.il/index.html

The site includes a link to an abridged version of Jewish Communities of the
World, published in 1998. The article covering Nicaragua says that in the
aftermath of a December 1972 earthquake that destroyed much of Managua, many
Jews emigrated. It also mentions the Sandinista government sequestered the
synagogue and other Jewish property and also imprisoned the community
leader, who managed to escape. He and most other Jews fled the country.
According to the article, since 1979 the Jewish community has been dormant.

It adds that there was a central Jewish organization until 1979, the
Congregacion Israelita de Nicaragua. There also was a B'nai B'rith lodge and
WIZO chapter. The article adds that with the outster of the Sandinista
regime Israel restored diplomatic relations with Nicaragua. Diplomatic
affairs are covered by Israel's ambassador in Guatemala city.

A list of world synagogues in
http://www.maven.co.il/synagogues.asp
includes one mention for Nicaragua. But it looks like a postal box (Apartado
108) for the (extinguished?) Congregation, and not a synagogue building. It
is not in Managua but in Granada.

A search in Google with Spanish for synagogue and Managua shows
http://www.generoysociedad.org/nicaragua.php
The page mentions an address for "CUSO", a "cooperation organization" of
national reach. Its address is "where the Synagogue was". compatible with
"the Sandinista government sequestered the synagogue", but I do not kow if
this is the same place.

In 2000, Candidate Herty Lewites won elections for Mayor in Managua. Other
websites describe Hebert Lewites Rodriguez as of Jewish origin. In the
article described at the beginning of this mail the author concludes - after
a 5 day search - that the mayor of Managua and his family seemed to be the
only Jews in the country but could not reach him. Having resolved to attend
Rosh Hashanah services, the author left Nicaragua and travelled to Costa
Rica.

Records of Sponsors During World War II #general

Alice Josephs
 

I have been told that a German relative of mine, Klara OPPENHEIMER born
HERZ (1875 Kochendorf, Baden Wuerttemberg - ? USA) and her husband wine
merchant Bernhard OPPENHEIMER (1872 Niederflorstadt, Hesse - 1958 New
York City) were sponsored by a member of the KLEINERT family to come to
the USA in 1940.

I have also been told that the KLEIERT family were somehow related to
Klara OPPENHEIMER. Surely there are records somewhere of World War II
sponsors? Can anyone make any suggestions?

I just received a reply >from one of that group's always helpful members. He
referred to the Slownik Geograficzeny Krolestwa Polskiego, saying that its
entry for Nowa Uszyca (earlier known as Letniowce) belonged in 1616 to Jakub
Kxki. In 1748 it belonged to the Crown and was rented to Konstanty Goxchowski
[Gottschalk? Godchaux"] in 1761. In 1770 it went to Jxef [Josef?] Popiel.

After the partitions, Nowa Uszyca was rented to Wxdzimierz [Vladimir?]
Czewkin, governer of Podolia. (I presume this rental occurred occurred in 1793
but it could have occurred after the partition of 1795.)

I can't explain the use of "x" for the letters in the above and have inserted
my guesses about names in brackets. I don't know what it means in "Kxki"
maybe "Kolki"? The "x" seems to stand for a number of possibilities But I am
almost sure Alex Sharon will explain the "x" better than I can.
Hi,

"x" does not appear in Polish alphabet, and it is represented by the
combination of letters 'ks'.
In the old Polish literature one can notice sometime "x" in words "Xiaze"
(Ksia,ze = count) or xia,dz (ksiadz = priest) or the name Xawery (Ksawery).
'X' that are shown in Naomi posting are most probably represented specific
Polish characters letters or even two letetrs as eg in missing first name
Wl/odzimierz or Jo'zef.

I am not a magician to figure out what exactly letters are missing in above
surnames, but I can say that both surnames: Czewkin and Kolki make no sense.
Perhaps scanned copy >from Slownik will resolve the problem.

BTW
Jo'zef Popiel proper name is Popiel Dumicz - he belongs to the different
Popiel branch of the Popiel families in Wolynia ia Podole than Popiel in
Galicia.
