businessman

Bakalarz - its depending of the context in which this occupation has been used.
Generally in old Polish it used to be known as a playful term for a school teacher
e.g person with Baccalaureate (BA) degree. But I presume that in this case we are
dealing with adopted in Russian Poland word >from Russian owner of "bakaleynaya
lavka" eg owner of the "bakaleya" or grocery shop.

Czelaznik krawiecki - correct to read: "Czeladnik" - tailor apprentice

Przekupta - correct to read "Przekupka" - vendor woman

[Fwd: who's got Krynki?] #belarus

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

I've just started digging more deeply into my father's family tree and
now have interest in the town
of Krynki, currently in Poland (just barely), east of Bialystok, west of
Brestovitsa and south of Grodno.

I don't see the town in JRI-Poland records so I'm wondering where to
look for them and which SIG(s)
cover the town of Krynki. I assume Brestovitsa is covered by the
Belarus Group and Krynki is right on the
border between Poland and Belarus today.

Prushkin == Pruzhanski (??) #belarus

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

My great-grandparents were Hirsh Tzvi and Rachel (nee Prushkin) Meyerowitz.

I have never found any Prushkin (per Rachel's death certificate)
anywhere in my searches but have recently discovered many
Pruzhanski in the area of Brestovitsa (Vyalikaya Byerastavitsa today in
Belarus) and Krynki.

Does this sound like a likely match?

Also, if you are researching Pruzhanski >from this area, please contact

Additions to JOWBR #warsaw #poland

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of over
187,000 records and over 10,000 tombstone images to the
JEWISHGEN ONLINE WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY (JOWBR).
The database now contains over 800,000 records in
1,810 cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots.

Additions were made to the records of the following countries:
Belarus, Canada, Egypt, England, Germany, Hungary, India,
Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands Antilles, Poland, Romania,
Slovakia, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, and United States.

Significant contributions were made by the following persons
and organizations. While all contributors are acknowledged
and appreciated, we are pointing out the following for their
extraordinary efforts.

- Carolynne Veffer (JGS Toronto) -
13 Toronto cemeteries (8,000 records)
- Bruno Segal - Botosani, Romania (~13,200 records).
- Terry Lasky - 11 Colorado cemeteries (~17,700)
- Susan Melnick (Rauh Jewish Archives) -
9 Pennslyvania cemeteries (>5,300 records)
- Rabbi Ed Cohen - 185 Connecticut, 31 western Massachusetts
and 8 Rhode Island cemeteries (~90,000 records)
- Gilda Kurtzman -
Significant additions and revisions of Israeli cemeteries

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without
the efforts of Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator;
Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, JewishGen's amazing technical team;
and the encouragement of Susan King, JewishGen's founder and
Managing Director. We also want to thank the team of volunteer
translators that worked on 16 cemeteries. Finally, without the
donations of photographs and burial records by hundreds of
individuals and organizations, this project would not be possible.
Our thanks and appreciation to all.

The JOWBR database is searchable at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery >.

Re: Seeking Information on Polish surname, LOPCHIA #poland #warsaw

Dear Rand,

I suggest that you check out the family in the NYC City Directories for 1910
and before and
after to check on what they say about the people in their house (apartment)
If you are not near a large public library that has City Directories on
micro film you can order copies >from your local Family History Library
(Church of Latter day Saints) (LDS) for a few bucks and have them in two
weeks. The should show the head of household and others living in the
house. I think you meant the "brother" of Nathan Fishbein's wife.

You could also look for his name as an immigrant on the Ellis Island Data
Base

Is anyone familiar with the Polish surname, LOPCHIA? I recently came
across
this name while researching Polish descendents in the 1910 U.S. Census
records for New York. A Nathan LOPCHIA lived and worked with the Nathan
FISHBEIN family in New York following his immigration to New York. He was
the sister of Nathan FISHBEIN's wife, Annie. Is this an unusual Polish
name
or is there possibly some other variation that was lost on the census
taker?

Someone please forward this message to her.

Hofer is an uncommon first name. Kingsley is not a German (or an Austrian)

My mother's maiden name was Koenigshoefer. There are two Jewish families
from Germany with that name. One was descended >from Daniel Ploch of the town of
Floss in the Upper Palatinate of Bavaria. Some of the members wrote their name
Goenigshofer. As far as I know the Koenigshoefers >from Floss have left no
male descendants with that name.

The other family with that name was on my mother's side. Emanuel Loeb
KOENIGSHOEFER was born in 1806 in Ermreuth, Upper Franconia. I don't know the
origin of the family name. He was orphaned young. He became Jewish school teacher
and cantor in the village of Welbhausen, near Wurzburg. He had two daughters
and two sons. The elder son, Moses Jonah, my ggfather, fathered 16 children.
He was a rabbi in Fuerth and director of Fuerth's Jewish orphanage.

The family has spread widely around the world and the various branches have
changed their names in a manner that causes anguish to genealogists. Kingsley
Hofer (or Hofer Kingsley) would certainly not surprise me.

The last time I searched the web, there were a dozen or more Koenigshoefer
families in Austria; they were not Jewish and didn't want to correspond with
me.

jacob/jack COHEN & Eleanor COHEN #general

Hi,

I am looking for information on Jacob COHEN, who immigrated with his sister,
Eske(Sarah)in 1898. In the 1910 New York Census, Jacob was living in Haven, New
York on a farm along with his sister, Sarah Cohen RUDERMAN, her husband, Morris
Ruderman and their children, Rachel, Ceil and my dad, Henry. Members of my family
said he went by Jack Cohen, but do not know where he was living.

Jacob and Sarah(who lived in Port Jervis, NY until her death >from cancer in 1948)
had a sister, Eleanor Cohen who never married, lived in the Brighton Beach area of
Brooklyn, and was struck down while trying to cross the street sometime in the
early 1960s.

If anyone has any information on Jacob/Jack Cohen or Eleanor Cohen, please let me
hear >from you.

GINZIG/GINZING & MORRIS: Married but single in census, multiply names #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

Again thanks to all who have helped me with my "brick wall". I have a couple more
questions. My Greatparents (William GINZIG/GINZING and Lenna/Lena MORRIS were
married in October of 1899, but my Great-Grandmother is still shown living at her
parents house in the June, 1900 Manhattan census as single with no mention of my
Great-Grandfather even living there. (I know this is the right family because of
the siblings listed.) I realize that it is possible that he wouldn't be on the
census if he was away, but why would she be listed as single? Plus, can't find my
Great-Grandfather anywheres in 1900 censuses.

Secondly, Lena's father is shown as Gustav in 1900 Manhattan census, George in
1910/1920 Los Angeles censuses, and Alexander on her marriage certificate. (Unable
to find family in 1880 census.) I'm pretty sure they are all the same person but
how does one go about verifying this?

Thanks to all in advance,
