the town Golub Dobrzyn, Poland, is now online at ViewMate.

In addition, one of the Russian-language documents I previously posted in
regard to this same effort has yet to receive any responses, so I am grateful
for anyone who might be able to help with either or both:

I posted an image to Viewmate >from a marriage record for my ggg-grandparents

I would greatly appreciate if somebody could provide a translation >from the
original Polish. The handwriting is particularly difficult for me to make
out.

Thanks very much!

Trade Publication - Source of Ancestor's Names #general

Sherri Bobish
 

Hi Genners,

While searching Google Books for something totally unrelated, I stumbled
upon a trade publication >from January 1914 entitled "The Power Wagon."
It is fully searchable and readable on Google Books.

It is just over 100 pages and contains lots of ads & articles with photos
of the proud new truck owners. Also, classified buyers guide of sellers of
truck parts, and a full page listing of names of people who have new
positiions in their company.

Also of interest is a long list of bakers and confectioners across the U.S.
that have purchased trucks. Many of the company names listed are person's
names.

Here is just a very small sampling >from the four page listing:
FISHER Bakery, Oakland, CA
Michael ROTH, Bridgeport, CT
HIRSCH Bros. & Co. Louisville, KY
KLOTZ Cracker Co., New Orleans, LA
DORR & ZELLER Catering Co., St. Louis, MO
John G. KNIPPERBURG, Paterson, NJ
APPMAN & MEYER, Brooklyn, NY
FINKELDEY Bros., Brooklyn, NY
H.S. LEVY, Brooklyn, NY
A.G. MEYER, Brooklyn, NY
ADLER & ECKSTEIN, NYC, NY
JANDORF & STEINER, NYC, NY
Isaac MAYER, Philadelphia, PA

The book is full of articles with names of many people on all the pages. If
you think an ancestor may have been in the truck or truck part business, or
have been a buyer of one, than I suggest searching their name in this book.

It also contains interesting blurbs throughout the book, i.e. Fresno getting
a 5-cent "electric bus" route, an Australian "motor vehicle census," and
Russia testing an American truck for possible purchase for the Russian army
by using the truck to carry construction products >from St. Petersberg to the
Czar's summer residence.

Name change in Suwalki ("Abramajtys vel Berensztejn"), 1830s/40s #poland

Adam Goodheart
 

Dear genealogists,

My great-great-great grandfather Isser BERENSZTEJN (born around 1810)
consistently used the surname Berensztejn in the 1830s Suwalki
records. In an 1844 birth record of a child, however, he suddenly
appears under the name ABRAMAJTYS. Through the 1850s and into the
1870s, he and his children often appear in the records as "ABRAMAJTYS
VEL BERENSZTEJN" ("vel" being a Latin term for "also known as") until
finally the Berensztejn part drops out entirely. Meanwhile, Isser's
brother Hirsz continued to use the Berensztejn name with no
alteration.

My question is: Why would a Jewish family in 19th-century Suwalki drop
a common Yiddish/Germanic-based name and adopt one formed with the
Lithuanian patronymic ending "ajtys" or "aitis," which is very common
among Lithuanian gentiles but almost very rare among Jews?

Could it be that "Berensztejn" was a name dating >from the adoption of
surnames under Prussian rule (pre-1815), and "Abramajtys" was adopted
by the family under Russian rule? I believe there was a gap of a
decade or so in the middle when no surnames were required.

This clearly wasn't a case of hiding >from the authorities, since the
authorities were aware of the alternate surnames.

I may never have a definitive answer, but I'd be interested in any
hypotheses. I'm also interested in whether other researchers have
found Polish records with the X vel Y" form of surname.

Re: 1890-1891 ??? Marriage document of my great grandparents, Chaia Liebman (b 1869) and Isaacc Goldfarb (b 1870?) in Losice #poland

Robyn Baume
 

Could any kind soul help me please to locate a marriage document for my
great grandparents who lived in Losice in the 1800s? Isaac's father was
Boruch Goldfarband, Chaia Lejbman's father was Reuven. I cannot see the
years (1890-1891?) that I am interested in any of the searches
that I do for Goldfarb/ Liebman names in 1890-1891? for Losice? As a
matter of fact, I cannot find Isaac Goldfarb's birth record either,
which is strange (he was born about 1871 according to records I have of
him in London after he migrated there in the early 1900s)???

The Losice Jewish Records Indexing - Poland Page on the website states
that :

Archive 38 Fond 116 1862 / 1903 M Complete?

Are the years 1862/ 1903 - uninterrupted/ partial ?? Which Archive
is 38???

I have only contacted Lublin Archive, Beith Hatsufot (Tel Aviv) and the
Family History Centre to obtain records originating >from Losice for my
family.

Any assistance would be appreciated to locate the years that I am
interested in.

Thanks,

looking for ww1 graves near Bolzano #austria-czech

Eli Brauner
 

Dear all,
I have joined this SIG in order to look for help in my quest to find my
grandfather grave.
He served in the Austro Hungarian Imperial army and never returned to his
family in Lwow.
We have a 1915 photo >from him which was taken in Bozen - Bolzano. An area
which fierce battles took place.
Obviously we are looking for WW1 war graveyards.
I have found a name of a group that as it seems took care on the war
graveyards: " Presidium of the Black Cross Military History Society Colonel
Erwin Fitz (Austria)".
Can someone navigate me to this group?
I would be grateful for all relevant info.
Thank you,

problems with badatelna.cz #austria-czech

fuerth.thomas@...
 

I have been in contact with Lenka Matusikova at the Czech National
Archives. She told me that they have problems with the Badatelna site.

This is what she writes in an e-mail to me:

We know about the troubles with Badatelna. It is the problem of
private firm, which supervises the whole system and in the last
months, there are problems to comunicate with the people there. But we
are working on it and hope, it will be better.
