JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project is delighted to announce a first for
the translation project. We have added a Polish translation of the
of the Zgierz, Poland yizkor book to the web site. This is the first
time that we have included a Polish translation of a yizkor book, but
it will soon be followed by a translation into Polish of a few
chapters of the Debica book.

The Polish translation of the Zgierz book is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/zgierz/zgip000.html. The translation
into English >from the original Hebrew and Yiddish is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/zgierz/zgierz.html.

The arrangement to have the English translation put into Polish was
initiated in April 2003 by a letter >from Mazenna Gruszecka, which
began a year-long collaboration with the Yizkor Book Project and
resulted in an exchange of many interesting letters between her and a
number of JewishGenners with roots in Zgierz. The introduction to
the Polish translation explains how this collaboration began. Also
read the moving introduction--in English--by Mazenna at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/zgierz/zgip001.html

Our thanks to Mazenna and Zuzanna Gruszecka for their warm hearts and
vision. To quote Mazenna, "I hope our work and co-operation will
make possible to look the future more optimistic for all Zgierz Jews
in Diaspora and present citizens of Zgierz."

Our thanks also to Osnat Ramaty, our dedicated htmler, who did a
magnificent presentation of the Polish text; to Jerrold Jacobs, the
project manager for the Zgierz yizkor book project; and Jerrold
Landau, for his sensitive translation into English of the original
Hebrew and Yiddish text.

Hello,
I am researching my family surname: KESTLER. Does
anyone have information on a DAVID or YSSEY KESTLER or
my ggrandfather, Eduard Nathan KESTLER, born October
13, 1829? Unfortunately, I do not have a town or
country or birth, but do have photographs taken in
Vienna and Budapest in 1895. Eduard eventually went
to Central America and settled in Guatemala. Thank you.

Search NY Birth records 1938 & 1954 #general

rokoco1@...
 

Dear Genners,

We really need your help. My dearest friend is trying to locate her birth
mother and/or family. Her son Just died of Cancer in his 40's. She worries for
her other children and grandchildren. Her birthdate is Sept 10, 1938.

Interestingly, in the family who adopted her has an older adopted son.
When the adopted son married, he and his wife adopted a son who was born in
New York on March 17, 1954. His birth mother's birth name is the same as hers.

She was adopted and brought to Chgo and given to her adoptive parents at a
train station when she was 4 years old. She was raised by this family til
adulthood, but was not legally adopted til she was 16.

We are hopeful that searching the birth records for these dates may shed some
information, but I don't know how to go about it. Please, please help.

My email message to Norman Winokur has bounced, despite the fact that he
gave that address to me via telephone just this week.
(nwinokur@suffolk.lib.ny.us) He is a member of one of the several JGS's in
the New York area (Long Island???)

I have searched the jewishgen discussion group archives and have not found
any postings >from him. A search of JGFF for those researching Winokur does
not yield any useful information either.

He has requested some information >from me concerning Philadelphia records,
and I would like to contact him. If you know him, and can put him in touch
with me, or the reverse, please respond privately.

Thank you.

The name of PROZEMENT or a variant of it from Russia #general

Irv Goodman <irvgoman@...>
 

I have been unable for some time to find anyone with the name of PROZEMENT
or a variant of it.

As background, I have been looking for descendents of my great Grandfather
Avraham KATZ who may have resided in several different cities in Russia to
include: Doroshivka, Bacivsk and Kiev.

Avraham KATZ was married to Golda Guttman who had four sons; Shmerka
Abramo, Hanoch, Hirsch Leib and Shimon. Three of the four sons moved to the US New
York during the early 1920s with the exception of Shimon. My Grandfather,
(one of Avraham Katz's sons) Shmerka Abramo Katz married Fajga (Fannie)
Prosement or PROZEMENT. Faiga, my grandmother, parent's names were Esther
Pearl (unknown maiden name) and Joseph PROZEMENT. I believe they lived in
the City of Kiev (in the Jewish section).

On a final note, when the three sons of Avraham Katz moved to the US, they
changed their names to leave Russia (avoiding inscription into the Russian
Army). They took on the last name of GOODMAN (a derivative of the family
Guttman).

If you see a link or have come across the name Prozement, please let me
know.

Thank you.

BRODSKI & SLOBODINSKI of Berdichev #general

Barbara Joseph <daisyjo@...>
 

My Grandmothers maiden name was Brucha BRODSKI and she married Jacob
SLOBODINSKI. My grandparents came to London, England in the late 1800's
together with two children >from Berdichev, Ukraine. The family name was
subsequently changed to Slowe.

I believe that she was related to the Brodski family who were well known
sugar refiners in Russia. Brucha had a sister who stayed in Russia during
the revolution. Her sister had two daughters who were doctors in Moscow.
Contact with them was lost during the Second World War.

I would appreciate any information on the Brodski or Slobodinski family.

Many thanks.
