Peter,

I read this word as "Molocznik" (Polish for the milkman).

Letter 'l' in this particular word represents broken Polish 'l'. Some people
use to write broken 'l' as a small dash around the top of the letter which
is often confused with the letter 't'.

Morocznik would be also an unusual surname for a Jewish Galitzyaner >from the
Rohatyn region, but it would not be out of place in the Central Poland.

Ordering Copies of Records through JRI-Poland #galicia

About one month ago, coinciding with the start of the Jewish Genealogy
Conference in Las Vegas, the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland "Search
Database" page and functionality were changed.

Although the process for ordering records did not change, an Order F-A-Q
(Frequently Asked Questions) was prepared and is available for your
reference at http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/orderfaq.htm.

If you have a question about ordering records >from the indices in the
JRI-Poland database, please refer to the Order F-A-Q first.

Re: Where is Kadon Russia #general

Tom Smith <tmsmith2@...>
 

Thank you to all who replied to this question. I will check out all the
suggestions as I have time. I had considered all of these as
possibilities, particularly Keidan Lithuania. However, as Lithuania was
being written on the 1930 US Census forms that showed Russia in 1920, I
naturally assumed that it would be used on death certificates as well by
1936. The form clearly shows Kadon, not Kadom or Radon, and Russia, not
Lithuania. The certificate has four sets of handwriting: my Uncle as
informant, the family doctor, the undertaker, and whoever completed the
remainder of the form. I assume that this was a clerk who might have
been aware of which parts of the Russian Empire were considered
Lithuania at that time. On the other hand, maybe they were not aware.
Does anyone have knowledge as to what was common practice in Chicago at
this time?

On a registration document the trade appears to be Traktora although it is

Baltiimore death look-up WASSERMAN (RAPPOPORT, SCHAFER) #general

DVORAHSV@...
 

Anyone going to the Maryland state archives and willing to look up a
death for me (I'll return the favor in Massachusetts!) sometime between
1911 and 1920? My paternal ggm Sara WASSERMAN, born 1864 or 65 in what
is now Moldova, as Sara (Sura) RAP(P)OPORT, married first to Itzik
SHAFIR (SCHAFER) and they divorced in Kishinev in 1890 when my
grandfather, Jacob David SCHAFER was 5 years old. She then married
Solomon WASSERMAN >from Focsani/Odobesti in Romania.

The 1910 census lists the family, Solomon and Sara WASSERMAN and his
step-son Jacob SCHAFER, living in the Boston area. But no trace of Sara
or husband in the 1920 census anywhere, nor in Massachusetts death
records that I can find. I know the family had lived in Baltimore at
some point between 1911 and 1920, I think she may have died there. My
father, born in 1911, never mentioned a grandmother.

Any info on this family appreciated, and a Baltimore vital records
search *greatly* appreciated :-) Or even directions, a web-site or form
to fill out for Maryland death lookups.

Thanks for your assistance,

Thank you for your suggestion.

I did look at the 1923 and 1928 or 29 online Polish business directory. It
seems there are more than 20 banks on Piotrkowska street and I can't tell
which is on the corner of Platz Wolnosc (Freedom Square).

I am trying to track down the name of the bank in Lodz that stood at
Piotrkowska street and Platz Wolnosc (Freedom Square) right before the
war
and start of the Lodz Ghetto.
Does anyone know this information in this SIG? If not, how do I find the
name of this bank?

Thanks,

Hi,

I know (according to the Given Names database and Message Archives)that the

found any recorded link between Meir and Mark as a combination of given names.
Do any of you have examples of such a combination?

This is a photo of my grandfather, Elias Weidenfeld. It was taken in
Galicia, and he was born in 1872. If someone could look at the photo and
give me any details, and about when it may have been taken, I would be most
appreciative. He came to the US in 1909, so it was taken before then.

Thanks very much,
