"oyshlech"-Weiruszow expression? #poland

ava rosenblum
 

One side of my family has been harder to trace. It occurred me today
that my dad's brother is the only Jewish person I know who said
"oyshlech" as an expanded form of 'oy.'

Some of the passenger list documents I've accumulated point to
Weiruszow (near Lodz) as their home town.

Might anyone know if that term 'oyshlech" was idiomatic to Weiruszow?

Thank you.

Posen City Registration Cards--they're up through R! #poland

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

Last summer we learned of the existence of images of the residence
registration index cards >from the city of Posen/Poznan.

The date range for these cards is given as 1870-1931. They are of great
interest because they list all the members of a family and give birth
dates and places--and sometimes the names of parents too. Moves, both
within Posen/Poznan and from/to the city are noted.

The Polish State Archive image web site had uploaded images of the cards
alphabetized A through L and the first part of M.

I just noticed that the rest of M plus N through R have been uploaded.

The cards are cataloged in groups of 500 to 1000 images each. (Some
cards have info on both sides!)

As many have remarked, the site gives excellent images (and lots of
them) but is not particularly user-friendly, especially for us who don't
know much Polish. The collection in question (Posnan Archive 474:
Records of the City of Posen) is cataloged on the site in such a way to
make it nearly impossible to find what one wants among the 26,000+
items, all of which are listed although about 97% of them aren't on line
(yet). In fact, the only part of the collection that's available is this
set of cards.

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/53/474/0/19.3/str/1/100#tabJednostki

gets you to the alphabetical list of those groups.

That page and the next 10 link to a summary page for each group (click
on any column in the row you want).

from there, click on "Digital Copies" to the right of the red arrow
with the call number in it.

That will get you to a page of 15 thumbnails. You can set the page size
as high as 100 thumbnails.

Click on one of them to see a medium-sized image. You can page through
these fairly quickly. The image display has a feature that will give you
an enlarged version in a separate window.

The cards are supposed to be in alphabetical order, but this is not
always exactly the case, so if you're not sure you've found everything
you need, cast your net a little wider!

Question for Moderator #hungary

jzeisler@...
 

H-Sig Moderator,
I have several documents in Hungarian that I would like to have
summarized in English but are too large to post on ViewMate. My plan is
to place the files in my Dropbox account and provide the link. My
question is: Can I provide the links (URLs) to the documents within my
request, or will I need to provide those separately, offline, to those
who have interest in summarizing the documents?

Thank you.

Jerry Zeisler

Moderator: OK to provide links to your Dropbox account but I suggest limiting
access to those who contact you and offer to help.

Looking for someone who knows Brooke Lazar Lane Stoloff #courland #latvia

Deborah Stoloff and I both have STOLOFF family connections.

I met someone at the annual Jewish Genealogy conference in Boston who told
me Brooke Lazar Stoloff was in his family tree. Emails to her have bounced
back. What makes this utterly fascinating is that I told my uncle who said
"your grandfather had a brother Lazar left behind in Europe who probably
died in the Holocaust". Major shocker. Since my whole life long I never
knew, and neither did my father, that Lazar existed. That Brooke has his
name for a middle name is very exciting. Did Lazar survive the Holocaust?
Is this his daughter? Granddaughter? If anyone has any information
whatsoever on this person please let me know.

Thanks, Deborah Stoloff

Location of Burial in Chicago #general

janicemsj@...
 

I would appreciate some help in trying to determine where a distant
cousin, Zsigo Pollak, is buried in Chicago. The 1913 death
certificate gives place of burial simply as "Forest Park." I have
contacted and ruled out Waldheim, both the primary sections and those
cared for by Silverman and Weiss, Westlawn Cemetery and Mausoleum,
Oakridge Cemetery, and Forest Home Cemetery/Old German Waldheim.
One of them suggested that there was another Jewish cemetery in Forest
Park, on Harlem Avenue or maybe Broadview, but could not remember the
name. Though I have searched diligently with Google, I have not been
able to figure out what cemetery that could be. The undertaker was J.
Weinstein at 1336 Blue Island, if that helps at all.

Thanks very much for any assistance.

World Family Tree? #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. Does anyone have any insight into "World Family Tree" >from the
90s? I found a great-great-grandfather of mine (Arthur Collier of Paterson,
NJ) and his family listed on something called "The Raff Family Tree" online
and it states that they were >from Vilnius, Lithuania. However, when I more
recently obtained Arthur Collier's U.S. naturalization records, it says that
he came >from Jalowka, Poland, which is 165 miles (270 km) away >from Vilnius.
While the latter is more trustworthy, I'm wondering what other information
might be in World Family Tree about this branch, and to see if I might
figure out if maybe the family had initially been >from Vilnius but he moved
to Poland before coming to the United States, or anything else of interest.

Today, I went over to the huge genealogical library kept by the Daughters
of the American Revolution here in Washington, DC to see if they have this;
they actually a number of volumes of WFT, but volumes 1-12 seem to be
missing. The woman on-duty also was very dubious of how useful it would
be--insisting that it was just something that anyone could add information
to regardless of accurate scrutiny of information--at the same time as
saying that she didn't know anything about WFT.

Is WFT something that I should pursue? (The information is purportedly
available on Genealogy.com, but when you click to place a subscription
order, it says that access is forbidden. Very strange. But maybe I'd be
wasting my money...?)

This is the cited source info that I'm trying to access:

1 Brøderbund Software, Inc., World Family Tree Vol. 1, Ed. 1, (Release
date: November 29, 1995), "CD-ROM,"), Tree #1069. Customer pedigree.
