Kowal online on JRI-Poland #general

P & R Nash
 

I am delighted to announce that the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland Project
for the town of Kowal is now fully funded and the index to records can now
be searched online at www.jri-poland.org Thanks to the generosity of a group
of Kowal researchers, an index to the 1800 records in the Polish State
Archives covering the years 1879-1894 for births, 1885-1901 for marriages
and 1883-1893 for deaths is now available for other researchers to make
progress with their research.

In Kowal, being located in the Warszawa Gubernia between Lodz and Wloclawek,
brides and grooms often came >from other towns in the district and with a
population of over 1,000 residents between the Wars, it is worthwhile
checking out this resource. Some of these nearby towns include Plock,
Sierpc, Lipno, Gostynin, Izbica Kujawska and, of course, Wloclawek.

Before searching, it is a good idea to scan the list of surnames on the
JRI-Poland "YOUR YOWN" page for Kowal and note any variations of spellings
for the family name. Enter each on the "SEARCH DATABASE" page, so that all
possibilities have been covered.

The LDS film for the years 1810-1819 is being indexed and hopefully will be
online early next year. There are other resources available for Kowal
although access currently requires on-site research. For example, in the
Wloclawek Archives, Books of Residents exist for the years 1886 to 1930 and
in the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin, there are records for marriages for the
years 1837-1844, 1861-1862, 1900-1907 and 1939.

For researchers with an interest in Kowal, please note that I keep a record
of all enquiries and the family surnames being researched and welcome
contact with anyone with this interest.

Best wishes

Tel-Aviv Architect Zvi Spokojny #general

Ittai Hershman
 

Chaim and Chaia Saperstein and 5 of their 6 children moved >from Bialystok to
Antwerp circa 1907. One daughter was already married to a man called
Eliyahu Spokojny and did not emigrate with the remainder of the Saperstein
family.

In 1905 a son was born called Zvi Hirsch (Grisha) Spokojny who turns out to
have been one of the Bauhaus-style architects in "White City" Tel-Aviv (if
interested, see:
http://picasaweb.google.com/79Ramaz/SpokoiniWhiteCity?authkey=Gv1sRgCJm25dKN
3qK6PQ&feat=directlink). Two of his buildings are documented in several
books documenting the "White City". Zvi died in 2002; and, sadly, his only
son died in 2006.

I am interested in hearing >from anyone with information about Zvi (Grisha)
Spokojny or his family.

Many thanks,
Ittai Hershman

Records from present-day Russia #general

David Scriven
 

Dear All,

It is noticeable that there seem to be no records >from present-day Russia
on JewishGen. In particular, the large Jewish Cemetery in Moscow
(Vostriakovskoye) has no listings. Is there anywhere else one can
access or get these records from?

Re: Tarnow Birth Records #general

Roger Lustig
 

Polish law would forbid that, those records being under 100 years old.
In fact, you may need an affidavit stating your relationship to the
person you're researching if you apply to the USC (registry office) in
Tarnow.

Re: Letter About Kritz, Korb and Osherowitz #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The following letter has been translated >from the Yiddish (by V. Belling).
It was sent after World War II to Velva Sachar, President of the Kupisker
Benevolent Society in Cape Town, SA:

Dear Mr Sachar:

Here are the details of the nephew of Mrs Kritz. His name is Hershel
Osherowitz. The son of Sholem and Leah Osherowitz of Ponevezh. Before the
war he lived in Kovno and was a co-worker in the "Yidishe Shtime" (note:
Yiddish newspaper). His last address was number 8 Sniatsetskin Road, Vilne,
the Association of Russian writers. She is looking for his Aunt Hannah
Kritz, born, Korb, a sister of his mother Leah. Her parents were Saul and
Hannah Korb.

Her address is

Mrs Ch. Kritz
3 Gardner Flats
Watson Road
Muizenberg
Cape Town
S. Africa.

If you want more information, please telephone Mrs Kritz. Her number is
81864.

With friendly wishes and hoping that you will do the mitzvah of finding the
young man.

I remain your friend.

A. Dichter.

I hope that this is of interest to someone researching these families.

All the best,
