Does any one have some insight.

Yes, it is possible that your ancestor's ancestors "came" >from the town of
Korostychev. Many surnames are toponyms (place names), but you would be
fortunate to be able to trace your ancestors back to Korostychev.

I may be mistaken, but I have the impression that the Ukrainian "o" is
pronounced "ah," so if that impression is correct, then it is understandable that
when transliterated that Mr. Brook's family name was written and pronounced as
"Korastacheshevsky."

Dear Genners,

I just realized that I made a slight mistake with the country of two
of the cemeteries I mentioned in my Part II update. Pir and Urishor are both
in Romania, as opposed to Hungary.
Also, for the benefit of the newcomers, the acronym HFPJC stands for
Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries.

Sorry for the inconvenience ...

All the best and best wishes for an easy fast...

BLUMENZON listings for Israel #general

sbloom@...
 

Hi Folks:

I would greatly appreciate it if an Israeli colleague (or someone somewhere
else who has ability to easily read hebrew web pages) could look up the
phone/address listings for members of the BLUMENZON family in Israel
(spelled with the "Z" sound", though some BLUMENSON are also related). I
suspect that most are related to me, though distantly. I have tried using
the Bezeq web pages, but found them difficult to navigate. Id guess that
there are about 20 or so listings, if even that many. I do not know where
most would be living, though many years ago, some were living in or near
Tel Aviv.
I can read Hebrew, so sending scanned paper directory is fine, or copies of
Hebrew web pages.

If you think you can be of help, please reply privately.

Shanah tova,

The family branch with the name claims ancestry in Austria, or somewhere

Re: SCHULWOLF surname #general

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Mila:

The answer to the question -- where in Austria was this family's
ancestral home? -- can be found by searching the independent
JRI-Poland database.

The largest concentration of Jews living in the Austro-Hungarian
Empire during the 19th and early 20th Century was in the Austrian
province of Galicia. This former area is now southeastern Poland
and south western Ukraine. Many Jewish vital records >from this
area are housed in the Polish State Archives and have been
indexed by JRI-Poland.

Go to the JRI-Poland homepage at www.jri-poland.org, click on
"Search Database," and enter your surname. Then qualify your
search by using Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex to capture spelling
variations and set Gubernia to "Galicia" to capture only results
from that former Austrian Province.
The results show 59 matches >from only four eastern Galician (now
Ukrainian) towns. However, 46 of the matches are >from one town --
Podhajce (now Podgaytsy).

Now you can concentrate your research with knowledge that it is
likely your ancestral shtetl was Podhajce.

Another tool useful for family research is the "Search this
Website" function of the JewishGen website that can be found at
the top and the bottom of the JewishGen homepage table of
contents. Search for SCHULWOLF and you will find three matches
indicating that this name shows up in three JRI-Poland Surname
lists. This result should lead the researcher to search the
JRI-Poland database.

JRI-Poland and JewishGen volunteer Jean Rosenbaum has been
instrumental in the Podhajce/Podgaytsy Yizkor Book translation
project (http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Podhajce/Podhajce.html).
Searching the Necrology shows a few SCHULWOLFs. The Podhajce
ShtetLink website is another source of information
(http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Podhajce/).

Town on passenger list-Eordomo? #general

Dear Genners,

I have another question. On the passenger list I find a town that I can't realy
make out. It looks like Eo(accent)rdomo. There's another word that starts with
C and then Ung.
Can anyone make a guess to what the actual name is?

Also, on the 1900 census I find a first name of Backie. Is anyone familiar with
that name- in later years it was Bessie then Bettie.

Thank you so much.
Cordially,
Rene Payne
