I, too, would like to know how to get Death Certificates >from Israel.

Please post the answer to that question to the list. Can it be that just
Mr. Klein and I are the only two genners that don't know the answer to
this question?

Any help would be appreciated.

im researching KATZ >from the warsaw area,my great
grandfathers obituary states that he was of KUTNOW as
a town this does not exist in that context,it is
obviousley KUTNO,could anyone enlighten me as to
polish pronounciation,wether that means he was from
kutno or kutnow district.
many thanks
malcolm katz
The Polish pronounciation of Kutno is KOOT-no. As far as I know, there is
no such thing as "Kutnow". It may be just a misspelled "Kutno". However,
the adjective of "Kutno" is "kutnowski" (male), "kutnowska" (female) and
"kutnowskie" (neutral).
Kutno is the seat of the Kutno County or "powiat kutnowski" in Polish.
from that obituary, would you think that "Kutnow" was in the Warsaw area?
Kutno is in the Lodz area.

Warts and All #general

MEL OSHINS
 

Hello,
I believe we should tell all the stories.
Of course there should be a big distinction between stories, facts and
gossip.

I found out by accident of checking the Internet that a person with the same
surname as my cousin went into Bankruptcy. Then I found out the cause was
excessive gambling in Poker Tournaments. This cousin, to whom I have little
immediate knowledge, asked me for genealogical information on his family for his
granddaughter for a school project. Since there were two people with the
same name >from the Internet, I sent the info and asked him if he knew who this
person with the Bankruptcy was and also the other person with the same surname.
It turned out that the person with the Bankruptcy and the gambling problem
was his son. He knew nothing about it as they were estranged for a while. The
son was angered to the point of wanting to sue me for divulging this
information to his father, which of course was common knowledge and easily
accessible on the Web.
To make a long story short, my cousin and I no longer are in contact with
one another.
But the warts remain in the file and I find no reason to remove them.

This is a follow-up to my message about using www.stevemorse.org with a
commercial website to search the U.S. census. Apparently, it is against the
rules to mention such a commercial site, and the moderator was required to
delete its name. I have already received a request privately for the name
of the site and expect to receive more, possibly too many to answer
individually. For those who are interested, please see the stevemorse.org
site, which specifies the name of the commercial site in the section on
searching the U.S. census. The person who wrote me lives in Israel, and I
have no idea whether the commercial site is available in libraries outside
the U.S.

Dear Sir,

My mother, Sara DOMBROWSKY- POMERANTZ, who passed away a few years ago, was
born in Slonim - Belarus. She left there parents and brothers who were
killed in the Holocaust. I'm now trying to find information about them.
Can you help me in my research? I'd appreciate it if you can give me any
address I should apply to.

The information I'm looking for is especially about:

1. Peretz Pomerantz (my grandfather), born around 1880. He was a teacher
and had a school in Slonim.

2. Yaacov (Jacob?) Pomerantz, brother of the above.

3. Yitzchak (Isaac?) Pomerantz, son of Peretz.

I'd appreciate any information you could help me get about my relatives.

Thank you for your help
