Need Translation of Polish Birth Certificate (VM 7820) #general

Deborah Dworski <ddworski@...>
 

Hi,
I just received a Polish Birth Certificate bearing our family's elusive
surname. I'd be grateful for a translation of the entire document (about 7
lines), but I'd settle for some opinions about the surname on the 3rd line
or so, following the handwritten name 'Michli." Family lore is that the
original family surname was BRONEWICZ, but it does not appear as if that is
the name written--or maybe I just cannot decipher the penmanship. Following
is a direct link to the document which is posted at ViewMate (VM 7820):

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7820

I'd be grateful for prompt assistance as it would be useful to know the
surname before a research trip to Salt Lake in a few days. Please respond
privately to my e-mail address above. Thank you in advance.

Grofsmosty? #general

I've just received some documents >from the Polish Archives and am having
quite the time trying to decode them. But a town name keeps coming up with
which I'm not familiar and I haven't found on cursory examination of the
shtetllinks files here -- "Grofsmosty". Anyone have any clues as to
what/where this is/was?

Thanks.

Jewish Genealogical Society - Hamilton & Area Meeting
Wednesday, May 17, 2006
7:30 PM to 10:00 PM
Speaker: Dr. Ralph Bloch - The Mohel Book of Huerben/Krumbach in Bavaria
1800 - 1837
Location: Temple Anshe Sholom
215 Cline Avenue North, Hamilton, ON

Jewish genealogists have access to few primary genealogical sources. Where
they do exist, Mohel Books - or circumcision registries - provide a valuable
window into the fabric of Jewish society in times past.

Unfortunately, few Mohel Books have survived the Holocaust, and even fewer
are publicly available. Obviously, they only list male children.

For the rural community of Huerben in Bavarian Swabia, Germany, the
transcript of a Mohel Book covering the period >from 1800 to 1837 is
available at the Leo Baeck Institute Archives in New York.

Ralph Bloch will describe what he found, while he worked his way through
this document.

Austrian and Czech Doctors - WODAK #austria-czech

Regarding Erika and Celia's recent postings regarding Czech doctors, in my
researches on the people with the name WODAK on the Yad Vashem website, I
came across Dr Anna Wodak b. 20 Sep 1903 deported >from Brno to
Theresienstadt on 29 Mar 1942 and subsequently to Auschwitz on 15 Dec 1943.

I have built up a large WODAK database covering Austria, Bohemia and
Moravia. I am particularly interested in any Wodaks >from Brumovice,
Dambrovice and Vienna and would appreciate SIG members contacting me about
anyone with he name WODAK on their family tree. Many of the Wodak names on
my database are unlinked and your response might enable me to link them into
family trees.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide

New Lithuanian Book #general

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman <ravbenzi@...>
 

Dear Descendants of Anshei Rumshishok and Litvaks everywhere:

I am pleased to inform you that a new book has just been published about the
Jewish communities of the Kaisiadorys Region of Lithuania by Rolandas
Gustaitis. Rolandas and his wife, Neringa, are Lithuanian scholars we
befriended some time ago. Rolandas' book is written in Lithuanian and the
translated title is "Jews In the Kaisiadorys Region". Vic Mayper reports
that the book contains an entire chapter about the history of Jewish
Rumshishok (Rumsiskes) which includes photographs and 28 pages of text.
Gevaldik!

I am also pleased to inform you that our dear friend and gutte neshoma,
Leonas Bekeris, has offered to translate the Rumshishok chapter into English
for us. I wish to publicly acknowledge both Rolandas Gustaitis and Leonas
Bekeris and thank them on behalf of the DAR. Due to their selfless efforts,
we will soon
be able to reclaim a portion of our shared Lithuanian history, once thought
lost forever. Further developments will be posted on our Rumshishok
website: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Rumsiskes

PODKAMEN? #ukraine

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Help Pls.

I have recently found the entry in 1921 at ellis island for a husband and
wife - on the Passenger record it says they came >from Cwitawa - Poland
(where is that?) but on the manifest it says the town was
Petkamien/Patkemien.

Could it have been Podkamen - Ukraine, not Poland.

Any ideas?

I'm stumped.

Thank you

Information on Jewish Charitable organizations London 1890s #general

Inbal Livne <me@...>
 

Dear all,
My great-great grandparents, David and Leah Schier (maiden name Goldsmid)
immigrated to South Africa in the late 1890s >from London, although they came
to London >from either Lithuania or Latvia in the 1880s. He was a tailor and
as well as supporting themselves and there four children, her sister lived
with them. I can't imagine how they afforded to pay the fares for all of
them to get to South Africa so I wondered if there were charitable
organizations in London who would have helped fund such a venture. Did the
Poor Jews Temporary Shelter help people who didn't actually stay there?
Also, does anyone know who may have helped them at the other end? They set
up a dairy farm in the Transvaal even though neither of them had any prior
farming experience so I am assuming they were helped in South Africa too.
Any help would be grateful appreciated.
Please email me at: me@...

Danzig surname adoption list, 1814 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am pleased to announce that the list of surnames adopted by Jewish
citizens in Danzig in 1814, when Prussia reoccupied the city, is now online
in the Articles section of our SIG website www.jewishgen.org/danzig.
Judging >from your JewishGen Family Finder entries, many of you can find
surnames you are researching on this list.

As noted in the Notes column of this list, three of these people had the
same pre-surname names (i.e., given name + patronymic) as Danzig Jews who
attended the Leipzig fairs during the 1750s and 1760s. The surnames they
adopted in 1814 are LEWISOHN, LILIENTHAL, and REYMANN. Hopefully, we will
be able to prove or disprove these connection based on our future research.

I will soon be posting additional identifying information about some of
these people, such as their possible relationships to people named in
inscriptions on objects >from Danzig that are in the collection of the Jewish
Museum in New York. If you have additional identifying information about
anyone on this list, please contact me.

Some of you have asked about my connection to Danzig. My gggggf is number
429 on the surname adoption list, [Rabbi] Gerson Naphtali NATHAN.

Best regards and Shabbat Shalom,
