Poland: Wodzislaw and Sedziszow -- 1792 census #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am about to order a copy of the 1792 census for the town of Wodzislaw,
Poland--in the hopes that it will include records for Sedziszow, where my
ENGLENDER family lived. But first: Has anyone seen this 1792 census? Does
anyone know if it actually does include records for the town of Sedziszow??

At least one set of my ancestors got to Chicago via Montreal, Canada.
Another set, in a completely different part of the family, drove(!) in
about 1920 >from NYC to Chicago, after arriving by boat to Ellis Island in
1903.

Re: Is SHEARER a Jewish or German name? #general

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Dear Orinne:

SCHEARER is probably a spelling adopted in an English-speaking country.
The e-a combination would be unusual in a German-speaking environment.

That said, the name, however spelled, has no particular connections to
Judaism, but was certainly used by Jews. It's German in origin, like so
many other names used by Jews, and was definitely used by Gentiles too.
There is very little that one could conclude about a person >from knowing
this name and little or nothing else--as with most names.

Is Schearer ever *not* a Jewish name??

Thanks in anticipation,

Subject: Anyone know this researcher?
I have received a recommendation for research in Kharkov by a Alexandra
Loshak. Has anyone heard of her. She was recommended by a Pavel
Bernshtam through our forum.
In the course of following up that question, I was informed by Ms. Loshak that in
order to find a 1890 birth record, you need a formal power of attorney, for reasons
of privacy. I guess people there live longer than everywhere else.

She also advises that the records are in two different archives, with different
associated costs. I did not understand the explanation about how to know which
source has what or if one has to search both.

I'd be pleased to hear of the experience of others. (Not necessarily with this
researcher, of course.)

Re: Shoemakers #belarus

Rsher5man@...
 

Dear All,
Just a note about my uncle's experience when he came to NY around 1899 as
a shoemaker >from Zirmuny (near Lida). He found that the Shoemakers' Union
was dominated by Italians and they wouldn't allow him to join because he was
Jewish. He couldn't make a living in the U.S. so he returned to Zirmuny where he
died in the Holocaust. Did other Jewish shoemakers encounter this obstacle?

Mogilev Rccords Update #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

The 1875 birth register and the 1876,1877, and 1878 death registers for
Mogilev (city) have been translated. There are 2,280 records. This data is
NOT available on the SIG website yet, since it needs to be reviewed (QC).
While some Mogilev researchers have donated enough money to pay for these
translated records, we need Mogilev researchers to continue to donate funds
to the Mogilev vital records project on
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html so we can continue
to translate more Mogilev records which are ready to send to the translator.

Some of the records were not fully legible, either because of the quality of
the original record that was microfilmed or because of the quality of the
microfilm.

I will announce on this discussion group as soon as the records are
available on the web.

Tchernobil book #rabbinic

Mehadrin@...
 

I noticed that the book "Sefer Hayachas Tshernobil veRuzhin" (Lublin
1938 2nd ed.) by Rabbi Aaron David Twersky has been reproduced and
is available online as a PDF file (277 pages) through
http://www.belzerseforim.com and http://www.hebrewbooks.org
It seems to be a very detailed genealogy of the various dynasties
descended >from Tchernobil.

I have discovered a web site that puts forth the genealogy of Rabbi
Wolf Josephson GOLLIN (1756-1833), also known as Wolf Lissa.

It can be found at:

I have no idea who this rabbi was, but someone out there might find
the information useful.

Dear all.

My paternal grandmother's grandmother, Sara LEVIN, who was born
in Vilna in 1786, and was married to Eliyahu RABINOWITCH of Zhet'l
(Dyatlovo), was the descendant of the rabbis named in the subject
line. Is there a chart for them which include her?

Best regards,
Udi Cain, Israel.
