Given names Moszek and Motel #general

Greg Tuckman
 

My third great grandfather's death record in Lublin, Poland indicates he was
survived by a son, Moszek BLONES, born and living in Lublin. I can find no
records on Moszek, but I am able to easily trace Motel BLONES. Can the
given names Motzek and Motel be considered one and the same? Thanks for
your help.

Given name Icek Eysyk #general

Hello group,
One of my ancestors, >from Lublin, Poland had the given name of Icek Eysyk.
I have seen this a number of times in the 19th century vital records, but
only in the city of Lublin. The spelling is always different for the first
and second name. Does anyone know if there is a meaning behind this "double
name"?
Thanks for your thoughts.

ViewMate VM8444 -Vase (?) symbol on Tombstones #general

NAUMAN
 

Dear Friends,
I am helping a small group of researchers in Germany to computerize and
build a Database of Jewish population in Jewish communities and Cemeteries
especially in Bavaria (Bayern - Unter Franken). The Database shall be
accessible via the Internet and is to be hosted on the University of
Wurzburg Server.
During the gathering of data and having taken hundreds of Tombstones photos
at various Cemeteries we came across a particular Symbol that looks like an
Amphora (Vase) - see ViewMate VM8444 ViewMate address
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8444 .
This particular symbol appears to be on several Tombstones in several
Cemeteries that are not in the same neighborhood, administration or
belonging to a certain family. Can any one suggest or advice what is the
meaning of said Symbol, does it reflect or hints to some particular family
profession?
I for example think it is associated with a Mikve (Ritual Bath) but, I am
told, it is also appears on Gentile tombstones. Any thoughts and or better
say substantiated source is welcome.
Please send responses directly to me at gnauman@... - not to the
list.

Thanks and Shana Tova to all, let peace come to the Land of Israel.

Gad NAUMAN, Haifa, Israel gnauman@...

News of old volumes of Jewish records for Chrzanower families #galicia

Sara Lieberum <saralieberum@...>
 

Some time ago, around May 4, 2006, Simon Srebrny posted this e-mail:

"I visited the Urzad stanu cywilnego in Chrzanow in the 1980s and was shown
the only two volumes of Jewish records they had: - one was a book of deaths in the
late 1930s and 1940s compiled after the war on the basis of the testimony of
survivors.
I copied out lots and lots of records. The second was, I believe, marriages
for a couple of years in the 1920s. I shall check my notes when I am home
next week.

Last week I visited the same office again and was told that a bunch of old
volumes of Jewish records had JUST BEEN FOUND!!! And by this summer, they should
have been restored. PLEASE don't all go and pester them straightaway. The
director said she would let me know what is in these volumes and when they become
available.
Nowadays one will not be allowed to read through the records to search for
kin. But one will be able to request copies.
The discovery is - possibly - great news for Chrzanower families. I never
understood why there was almost no material about our community. The
director did not or could not tell me where or how come these volumes suddenly
reappeared.

Is anybody out there interested in some kind of Chrzanow records project???
I found good materials in Chrzanow and in the Katowice archives last week.

Simon Srebrny

(currently in his home town of London, but living in Berlin)"

I have been checking regularly, but have found no update on these records.
Now that summer is over, I was wondering if there is any news. I am anxious
to know what is in those recently uncovered records. Has anyone requested
copies?

X-Message-Number: 2

I have just learned I may have a connection to the towns of Drobin, Sierpc
and Raciaz in Poland. I would be pleased to hear >from any of you
researching those towns and who recognize my family names, which follow.

Augusta (Gittel) SZNAJMAN / SCHNEIMAN was born circa 1862, possibly in
Drobin. Her father was Chaim and her mother's name was Esther Miriam, with
a surname similar to DORKERTZ, which appears on Augusta's marriage
certificate to Charles Morris in January,1893 in New York City. This was
apparently her second marriage; the record says she was a widow. Augusta
immigrated circa 1880 - 1885 but I have been unable to locate a passenger
record. She lived at 305 Madison Street in Manhattan when she married
Charles. Augusta died in 1905 leaving 3 young children: Herman, Esther and
Fannie (my grandmother)and her husband, Charles, who died in 1909.

I have found that a Max SCHNEIMAN and his wife Sarah LIPPMAN SCHNEIMAN also
lived at that address >from 1892 until at least 1897. They also had a
daughter named Esther born in 1892.

Beider's dictionary of surnames in the Kingdom of Poland indicates the name
SZNAJMAN to be common in Sierpc, Poland, not far >from Drobin.

I added the above names and towns to the JGFF today as well as possible
variants such as DERKACZ and DORKASZ, which I learned >from searching the
JRI-Poland surname lists for nearby towns. There are 2 entries of interest
in the JRI-Poland database for Drobin, Poland. The first is Malka SZNAJMAN
born 1853 to Haim and Estery Marym DEBRACZ >from LDS film # 729205. I will
attempt to view this film nearby, but if anyone has easy access to it and
could copy AKT#24 for me, I'd be thrilled.

The second is AKT # 31 on the same film which is the birth record of Brana
SZNAYMAN in Drobin, but no parents' names are listed in the database.

Please contact me privately if any of the information is of interest or if
you feel there may be a connection to pursue.

Thank you,

Eden Joachim expressed interest in the town of Drobin, Sierpc or Raciaz.

Jewish Records Indexing Poland has created indexes to records for these
three towns that are in the Plock branch of the Polish State Archives.
Descriptions of the records are available in the "Your Town" section of the
JRI-Poland website. Surname lists are also provided so you are able to see
if records exist for those names that you are researching.

In addition, there are indexes to records that have been microfilmed by the
Mormons and, once again, details are available on the Your Town section of
the JRI-Poland website.

Here you will find more details of the information available for these
three towns.
