Seeking: BARNET family of Manchester #general

JEAN PERKIN <jeanperkin@...>
 

Does anyone remember the Barnet family of Manchester. The original name was
Bockenstein. Head of the family Beryl Bockenstein aka Barnet

There was a Hilda Alexander nee Barnet. Her husband was a well known
Manchester supplier of peanuts.

Another Barnet was an editor of the Jewish Gazette. .

Also a Harry Barnet son of Abe Barnet of Salford?

There were some members of the Barnet family who had businesses
on Blackpool Pier and lived in Lytham St Annes.

Also Barnet and Barnet, solicitors of Shaftesbury Avenue W1

The family originally lived in Derby Road, and later lived
in Heneage St, East London.

This was what I knew of the family many years ago. Any further
information would be gratefully received

Thank you

Re: Finding Vital Records in the United States #general

Emily Garber
 

Chuck Weinstein added some good information about New York City vital
records to the discussion about finding USA vital records. I do
believe, however, that he may be incorrect in saying that: "There is
no published index for births occurring after 1910 in New York City."

In fact, FamilySearch has microfilmed the indexed records. While they
have not yet digitized and posted these online, a finding aid for the
NYC birth record indices is online at
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/1295570?availability=Family%20History%20Library

(MOD: http://tinyurl.com/qby5mzp)

In the USA (and several other countries) one may borrow these films
from the Family History Library for viewing at any affiliated local
facility.

The finding aid (they also have them for NYC death and marriage
records) provides the film numbers where the indices are published.
The indices for births and deaths goes through 1965. Marriages through
1937. I blogged about this last spring:

http://extrayad.blogspot.com/2013/04/new-york-city-vital-record-indices-1949.html

(MOD: http://tinyurl.com/nvd2okr)

Warren Blatt has also provided an InfoFile on JewishGen that provides
the Family History Library film numbers for both indices and
certificates, themselves.

Dear Jewishgen:

A couple of weeks ago I posted an inquiry regarding my missing family.
The family names were SALB, ZEWELUK, GRAFELEK, ZEULUCK, GROSSMAN, and others.
I was at a real roadblock.

I immediately got a slew of responses (either a sign that Jewishgenners
are incredibly generous or that I was incredibly stupid. :-).

Yehuda ben Shlomo, Barbara Zimmer, and Bette (bette_sscf) all provided
hugely valuable information. The three of them, along with numerous others,
have provided so much information that I now have many doors to open.

Of particular note is the development of the name. While I still do
not know how ZEWELUK became SALB, I have much more insight into how the
other names might have come to be.

This is my father's side of the family, which has been completely
undeveloped forever. I am deeply indebted. Thank you!

MODERATOR NOTE: Jewishgenners are indeed very generous. And to mark that
generosity, you may wish to make a donation towards the work of JG. Go to:

Looking for pictures from 1924 fundraiser of Rav Kook visit to Brooklyn #general

Gary Lelonek <goodbachur@...>
 

My fellow Genners,
I recently came across an article >from the Fulton historical NY
newspaper search (http://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html) of a
fundraiser that my GG grandfather, Simon Haskel, hosted in Brooklyn on
June 19, 1924. The article titled "Williamsburg Delegation Aids
Educational Drive of Jewish Leaders," was published on June 20, 1924
in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The article reports that "Rabbi A. J.
Kook, chief rabbi of Eretz Israel, Rabbi A. B. Shapiro chief rabbi of
Kovno and Rabbi M. M. Epstein, dean of Slobodka Yeshiva, welcomed the
delegation last night at 999 Bushwick Avenue, the home of Simon
Haskel, who was the host at the reception banquet. More than $15,000
was donated to the upkeep of jewish institutions of learning....."

I have read about Rav Kooks 1924 visit to America, including the NYT
article covering his arrival and his visit to President Coolidge. I
know that there are pictures >from the WH visit of Rav Kook and his
entire delegation.

I am wondering which local newspapers, either for the general public
or Jewish newspapers, would have likely covered the June 19
fundraiser? Where could I search their archives for articles for
further details and hopefully pictures with my GG grandfather, Simon
Haskel?

Thank you,
Gary Lelonek

Ludvipol (Wolyn) Yizkor Project Needs Donations #ukraine

jana@...
 

Dear SIG Members,

A trip to Israel last summer led me down a fascinating path to
discovering my lost relatives and the stories of those relatives who died,
and those who survived WW2.

My Great Grandma Anna Eizenman Babchick's entire extended family lived in
Ludvipol, Volynhia, Ukraine. The town was burned to the ground and the
townfolks were marched into the Kostopol Forest and murdered in August of
1942. Two brothers, Yosef and Avraham, my long lost cousins, escaped this
massacre, and today live in Israel. I photographed and recorded their
stories and now have taken on the project management of the Yizkor Book
translation at Jewishgen.org.

Yosef's section of the Yizkor book I have already had translated and will
post shortly. When we raise enough money, with your help, the entire 336
page book will be translated and available.

The community of Ludvipol, and neighboring Berezyna, were towns in the
Wolyn/Rovno Oblast, Ukraine, located at around 50°50'N 27°0'E. The town of
Ludvipol was founded in 1708 after the town of Hubków, which lies 4 km to
the east of current day Sosnove. Ludvipol consisted of villages, colonies,
and hutors. Between World War I and World War II Ludvipol was a capital of
the Ludvipol gmina in the historic region of Volhynia, and its population
was mostly Jewish. Before 1945, Ludvipol was a Polish village in Kostopol
County, Wolyn Voivodship and gmina.

Please donate to the Yizkor book project so we can all continue to learn
about Ludvipol and its people.

To donate go to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=3D2=

There you will see all the different Yizkor book projects. Scroll down to
Ludvipol, and donate anything you can $10, $25, $100 or more. Anything
helps.

Thank you!

Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878 - Gesher Galicia Map room #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Announcing the latest addition to the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

The Bolechow Cadastral Map 1850/1878

Direct link to the map:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/bolechow-bolekhiv-1878/

This is a black-and-white cadastral map of Bolechow (Bolekhiv) survey
edition (Feldskizzen) of 1850, reambulation of 1878, which includes
the communities of Bolechow Ruski, Dolszka, and Salamonowa Gora.

There are only 12 of original 18 sheets, which cover all of the
densely-populated town areas. This update includes extensive redline
and black pencil revisions to property boundaries, houses, and
property numbering, with many property owners' names. The town center
includes a church and a likely synagogue, a Jewish community building,
and the market; elsewhere, a Jewish cemetery is shown south of the
town center, among several suburban communities and intricate
waterways. (To find the cemetery, looks between the words "Zidowiec"
and "Dzika" for the open space marked with gravestone and triangle
images.

On the page overview, make sure to note the separate "town center"
(downtown Bolechow) map on the lower right hand side. You can zoom in
on both maps and make out most of the names. Some of the Jewish names
that were easily readable in the smaller map are:

Berl Taup
Bronja Langer
Cuder Gross
David Vioral
Feige Leiberman
Hersch Granbart (or Graubart)
Hersch Schindler
Jakob Reifeisen
Jossel Berger
Laisor Ziering
Mechel Halpern
Mechel Kleinberg
Moses Fruchter
Moses Hersch Gross
Moses Kaufman
Moses Lichtstein
Moses Schmidt
Munisch Fruchter
Salamon Chaim Rubin
Salamon Groll
Samuel Halper
Simon Reifeisen
Yankiel Tepper
Zach Bernsweig
(no first name, but surname) Handel

This map is a higher resolution scan of the same Bolechow map that was
stitched by Joan Adler and Fred Fogelson in 2010 >from paper copies.
We thank them again for volunteering their time and skills to create a
large scale, laminated map to bring to conferences, and we are
grateful to Gesher Galicia map room coordinator, Jay Osborn, for
tackling the difficult stitching of a map with many missing pages. GG
has a landowner records book for Bolechow that we are in the process
of indexing, with the results to be posted to the All Galicia Database
soon.

There are many Galitzianers with ties to Bolechow (the town that
Daniel Mendelsohn wrote about in "The Lost: A Search for Six of Six
Million,") and there is a very active birds-of-a-feather/non-profit
organization, the Bolechow Jewish Heritage Society, whose members are
working on restoring the cemetery and creating a museum in the town.

To learn more about the activities of the Bolechow Jewish Heritage
Society click here: http://www.bolechow.org/

To learn more about Daniel Mendelsohn's experience in researching and
traveling to the town, click here:
http://bolechow.ajmendelsohn.com/html/bolechow.html

You can access all of the maps in the GG map room by going to:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org and scrolling down to the alphabetical
listings of cadastral maps. Gesher Galicia hopes this iteration of
the Bolechow map will help many people discover relatives on these
pages and to get a true sense of the scope of Bolechow and its
history.
