I would also suggest that you keep an eye out for the idea that somewhere
way back in your family they came >from BRAILOV which is in the Ukraine. That
would be the reason why they got that name.
I am looking for the BERCZENKO family >from Brailov, that is the family name
of Israel Galili one of the founders of the Haganah.

Good luck

Re: Request information on town of Kovel, Ukraine #ukraine

Hi Neal,

Another source for some hints about Jewish life in your
ancestral town may be found in Kagan's Prenumerantn Lists.
Using his book, you can look up your town and find out
which books people there may have subscribed to. This will
lead you to some names of people in the town, and what
they were reading, which will tell you something about the
Jewish life there.

I recently used this resource myself, even though it's
written in Hebrew and Yiddish which I can only feebly
decode, and I was able to make use of it. I wrote up a
"how-to" guide for using Kagan's book, which is now
available as a JewishGen info-file:
http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/prenumerantn.htm

Also, don't forget to use the JewishGen FamilyFinder tool
to network with other people who are researching that
same town. Very useful!

Good luck in your search!

Re: Jewish Colonization Association -- WWII-era records #general

I remember many years ago looking through JCA files at the old headquarters
of the Center for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem. They had
not been sorted and consisted of letters in about six or seven different
languages. At any rate, that is probably the best place to turn to for
information.

Folks:

I have a communication on Jewish Colonization Association (Paris) letterhead
regarding the prospective emigration of my great-uncle and his family from
Poland to Argentina.

The date of the letter is 17 August 1939. This is the last trace we have of
these six people.

Did JCA continue after the start of the war, two weeks later? Were such
rescues immediately rendered completely hopeless? Were JCA records
preserved? Are they available for reference?

Thanks,

History: Klewan & Stobychwa #ukraine

Beyesn@...
 

Hello -

I am interested in learning the general history of the 1800-1940
Jewish communities of Klewan (Klevan) and Stobychwa in the Vohlynia
region of the current Ukraine.

If anyone knows this information, has access to a translated Yiskor
book on these towns, or can direct me to a source, I'd be very
appreciative.

Thanks for helpful suggestions #general

Dear Genners,

Thank you to the very helpful response I got to my request regarding
finding Holocaust survivors. I was looking for descendants of probable
family members >from a town in Germany >from which my ggg grandfather came
that I had visited and where I had been told that people of my family
surname had been living until 1938. I had a list of people with that
last name who had escaped the Nazis and fled to the US.

The unanimous suggestion was that I contact the Holocaust Museum in
Washington. I asked a cousin living near a branch of the Museum to take
my list and look up the names. He gave the list to a volunteer who
noticed that one of the towns mentioned was the maiden name of another
volunteer. When the second volunteer looked at the list, she realized
that I was searching for people who were related to her! She put me in
touch with the family I was seeking.

As I am writing this, the Jewish Gen Discussion Group posting suggesting
that one do exhaustive research before posing a question is the exact
opposite of the moral of my story above. I was writing; "moral--ask
questions. You never know what good advice you might receive and what
good luck might follow!

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

Shana Tovah to all!!!!!!

I am trying to locate a fairly recent "lost person".

Sol MILLER was a Notary Public who worked out of the Wadsworth Pharmacy
located ay 719 West 181st St. in Manhattan.

The pharmacy changed hands and the current owners know nothing about the
whereabouts of Sol MILLER.

Since he was a Notary, I tried contacting the New York County Clerk hoping
they would have information about him in their files. No such luck.

Another store owner said he lived in the Bronx. The only Sol MILLER in the
Bronx has a disconnected number.

Any idea. I can do the legwork since I am in New York.

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,

musician GLASS and old newspapers. #general

bettina glass <bettinaglass@...>
 

Hello, This is for those of you who might be researching a GLASS family. A
member of my GLASS family (born in Australia), according to family
knowledge, "travelled the world seven times" between, say, 1897 and 1925. He
visited "the Klondike, Utah, New Zealand and South Africa" (maybe elsewhere
as well), as a musician (violinist). He was known, in the parlance of the
times, as "The Great Julian". If anyone has encountered any reports of such
concerts or recitals in newspapers of those years, including reports >from
goldfields, could you please let me know? Named Isaac Samuel GLASS, he was
otherwise known variously as Sam, Alf, Julian. Unfortunately, posters
attesting to these events and sighted by family members, were destroyed
after the death of his wife in 1973.
Thank you,
Bettina Glass, Far North Queensland, Australia.
