ViewMate translation request - Polish Street name from which Opole? #poland

m.steinberg@utoronto.ca <m.steinberg@...>
 

Hello All,

I've posted part of a record >from June 6, 1946, for which I need help in
deciphering one word >from the Jewish Historical institute in Warsaw
written in Polish. I know that the city says "Opole" but I would like
to know the next word. I suspect it is a street name, but I am not sure.
I cannot find a current street name to match anything that looks like
what is written here. Also, if I knew what the next word was, it would
help me to be sure which town of Opole this record refers to, because
there are a few "Opoles" in Poland. Thank you so much in advance for
your help.. It is on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=18845

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or
privately by email.

Thank you very much,

Seeking birth records for Gorlitz, Germany or information about BICK family #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I've got a new project and I need your help. I just started searching today
but, as usual, I'm hooked.

I'm trying to find information about a David Adolf BICK who was born in
Gorlitz (o should have an umlaut), more specifically, the names of his
parents and whether he had any siblings.
David was born Jewish, the son of the rabbi in Goerlitz at the time. (He was
born in 1845 in Gorlitz.) He married a non-Jewish woman, converted to
Christianity and was cut off >from his family.
(His granddaughter and her granddaughter are interested in finding out more
about their Jewish roots. It just so happens that this great great
granddaughter is dating my son so I am also interested in her Jewish roots!
I would love to find some distant cousin of hers living here in Israel!)

I have no further information about the parents' names or families.

My hope is to locate the birth records for Gorlitz, if possible, to find out
their names and perhaps any siblings. Does anyone have access to/copies of
these records by any wild chance?

Does anyone know is there is a source where I can find who was acting rabbi
in Gorlitz at the time? There is no longer any Jewish community there and I
haven't been successful on the Internet searches. I will write to the
"Rathaus" there too to see if they can help. Thanks for any help.

Hope you had a nice holiday - whatever it is you celebrate!

Re: publishing a tree online #general

Dear Cousins,

I don't have much to add to this topic because several people,
especially Kenneth Packer, Daniel Kester, Joe Hirschfield already said
what I was thinking. However, I'd like to add that if one is
publishing information about even only a hundred living people, that's
a guarantee that somebody is going to be unhappy about something (if
they find out), and in our business, the most likely thing is personal
information. I don't think that it should be a concern, but to those
who disagree, my opinion doesn't count. I also believe that the
solution is dictated by the need or desire to stay in touch with these
relatives, for future information, because you like them despite their
different opinon, or simply because they're family.

MALTIANER Surname #general

Michael Waas
 

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew of the origin of the MALTIANER (or
MOLITANER) surname. The only places I've seen the name recorded are my
g-g grandfather's shtetl of Tulchin near the border of modern-day
Ukraine and Moldova, and in Northern Romania. For the record my g-g
grandfather's name was Abram MALTIANER and he changed it to SPEIGEL in
Boston in 1903.

Best,

Michael Waas

Sea versus land ports of entry in the U.S.- St. Albans Lists #general

bette_sscf <bette_sscf@...>
 

On naturalization documents, my ancestor *emigrated to the United States
from* London and *arrived at the port of* New York *in the United States*
but the ship he named did not sail a route >from England to New York. He
actually departed >from Liverpool and landed at the Canadian *sea* port of
St. Johns, New Brunswick, then boarded a train to New York, which was his
*land* port of arrival in the U.S. His ship manifest was found in the St.
Albans Lists.

An excellent article, "By Way of Canada: U.S. Records of Immigration Across
the U.S.-Canadian Border, 1895-1954 (St. Albans Lists)" by Marian Smith
(National Archives Prologue Magazine, Fall 2000) is online at
http://www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2000/fall/us-canada-immigration-records-1.html
and mentions a Chicago destination example.

St. Albans Lists passenger manifests are now included in the Ancestry "All
Border Crossings: >from Canada to U.S., 1895-1956" database.

TheShipsLists http://www.theshipslist.com/ does not list a ship named "Kiln"
so the correct name of the ship and its route (actual ports of departure and
arrival) need further research.

Opinion on Polish record #general

Ofer Biran <biranofer@...>
 

Thanks to JRI-Poland for locating the record !

This is a death record of Leybus Wayland -
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=18725

I got the following translation (the volunteers on ViewMate are
amazing ! - thanks all !) :
Death akt 52 reg. in Lukow Nov 23, 1831 of Lejbus WAYLAND, 70, son of
Josz/Nosz? and Ryfka

Appreciate opinion on:
1. Father name (osz/Nosz?)
2. >from a 1831 death record of my confirmed 4th ggm Sura Honigman in
Lukow, I learned that she was born in 1794 and her parents were Leybus
and Ryfka WEYLAND >from Lukow. The above is the only record for a
Leibus Wayland in Lukow (and you know that for pre-1800 we can usually
only get information >from such death records). Any opinion for the
assurance of relating Leybus in the Leibus death record to Sura's
father ?

Thanks
