Re: From Kolo, Poland to Leeds #unitedkingdom

Greetings to the north, Jeremy.

Thank you for those references, are any of them available online?

With respect to your opening paragraph, are you suggesting that perhaps the
first Jewish settlers in Leeds >from Kolo and other nearby locations was purely
by chance and then they communicated to others to "come over?"

Are arrival records for Hull available, either online or in paper form? I
do have the naturalization packets of various of my family members, but I was
surprised that there were no arrival details (place or date).

negative and images on Viewmate #general

Avigdor Ben-Dov <einglishmeister@...>
 

Tom Venetianer asked:

I wonder if someone has found a graphic software which can improve the
reading of such photographs. I used Photoshop but with very limited
results. The software I envision is an image processing/retouching
program which would eliminate the "noise" on such photos and augment
the contrast of the Hebrew or Latin characters.
Evertjan Hannivoort replied:

bitwize adding a blurred negative to original sometimes does wonders.
How can your method be used without an original? If one uses Viewmate, or
photoshop, how can an overlay be used in digital format to apply to the image?
In one photo editing program I use, a negative can be generated of a digital
photo, but not both, one on the other.

My father came to America illegally as a stowaway on the Normandie in
1938. Is there anyone in the JewishGen world who knows of anyone else
who came to America this way? Anyone still alive?

Hirschel name #general

Avigdor Ben-Dov <einglishmeister@...>
 

"Is the Yiddish given name Hirschel equivalent to the Hebrew name Chaim?"

No relation at all. Hirschel, sometimes spelled Hershel, is Hersko or Gersko in
Polish. In Yiddish it would be Tzvi Hershel even further >from the name Chaim.
