Seeking POT submitter Khaim BERG from Israel #general

Lee Nydell <lnydell@...>
 

Trying to locate a Khaim BERG, who lives in Israel and is a Shoah survivor.
On May 27, 1999 he submitted information to Yad Vashem about members of
his family who perished in 1942 in Majdanek. His family name might have been
spelled BARG. Some members of his family (grandfather Gershl -- grandmother
Malke -- father Leizer -- mother Etl and siblings Sheike, Sroil and Marsha) were
born in Vysokoye, Poland (now Belarus). The Shtetl of Vysokoye was in Western
Belarus, near to Brest, Belarus.

Re: Posen/Poznan FHC Microfilmed Jewish Records #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

Carolyn Lea and Roger Lustig are referring to a Hebrew pinkas of the Posen
Jewish Community that found its way to Berlin in 1937 where it was
microfilmed by the Nazi RSA. After the war it was at the Zentralstelle
fuer Genealogie in Leipzig, DDR, where in 1983 the Mormon FHS re-microfilmed
it.

I have a hard-copy sent to me by Edward Luft fifteen years ago. It is a
death register of the Jews of Posen [city] for the period of 1825-1853,
containing about 2500 deaths. It is in Hebrew script, quite tedious and
difficult to read because it is a 3rd or 4th generation of copying and
recopying, and because the original pinkas had dark, worn page margins, and
1930's era microfilming wasn't high quality.

Further, many of the names were patronymic, and even where there are family
names, they tend to be in the far left margin where they are too dark to
read.

The second part of the pinkas contains very lengthy lists-- >from 1825 to
1836-- of purchase orders and/or distribution [to the needy?] of "Kimcha
d'Pischa"--flour for baking Pessach matzot to the member of the Posen
community. The same problems are present. Many patronyms, Hebrew initials
in place of family names, nicknames, etc.

It would be possible to database this rare pinkas, but only if a
high-quality copy were to be re-filmed >from the Leipzig genealogy bureau,
perhaps with some image enhancement.

Searching: KLIANSKI/Lynics #general

Rony <golanron@...>
 

Hi,

For a long time I am searching for clues on the whereabouts of my ggggfather.
According to family stories his name was Ya'akov KLIANSKI (KLIANSKY), and he
lived in Lynics. One source says that Lynics is located near Ungvar.

I could not identify the location using the JG ShtetlSeeker
(http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/) nor was I successful in using the
JewishGen family finder (http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/)/ In fact the JGFF
lists one researcher for Lynics and he is researching KLEONSKY. Sounds
promising, but I contacted the researcher, and we could not establish any
link between his KLEONSKYs and my KLIANSKYs.

My questions are:

Where is Lynics ?
Which archives have the records for Lynics ?
Have you ever heard this surname ?

I should also say that Yakov KLIANSKY changed his surname to FRIEDMAN.

Thank you,

Rony Golan

Kings County Clerk #general

Paul & Myrna Lewis <pmlewis6391@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have a favor to ask. A friend of mine for over 60 years has finally caught
the "genealogy bug" >from me. Through [a commercial genealogy site], I was
able to find her grandfather's WWI registration, & his 1920 & 1930 census
records. But we haven't been able to find him on the Ellis Island records, even
using Stephen Morse's forms.

Using the JGSNY link, we have located his Naturalization Petition in the
Kings County Clerk's Office, Brooklyn, NY. The petition would most likely
tell us which port he came into, when, & what name he used. The problem is
my friend lives north of Boston, & I live over an hour NW of NYC, and have
physical problems that prevent me >from getting to the Clerk's Office.

I am hoping there is a kind genner that lives in Brooklyn near the State
Supreme Court of Kings County, 360 Adams St., (cross streets: Johnson, Court
& Joralemon Sts) that could go there, get the records, & send them to me.
The records are in the Clerk's Office, Room 0079. The Petition is #141 for
Meyer Shenkin, Page 81, Year 1917-1918. We would appreciate all the
documents included in the Petition “record” (Petition, Declaration and
Certificate of Arrival).

I realize that we could send for the documents. But due to the increase
demand for Naturalization records in the Kings County Clerk's Office, the
wait is approximately 4-6 months for mail requests. By then, I'm afraid my
friend will have lost her enthusiasm for genealogy.

If you are able to perform this kind deed, please reply privately by e-mail
to: pmlewis6391@optonline.net. I then can give you my address, so that you
can send the documents to me, & you will have my deep gratitude, as well as
that of my friend.

Thank you in advance.
