Zalko vs. Zelik #lithuania

Robert Mandelbaum
 

I have come across Lithuanian records for an ancestor whose name is
alternatively given as Zalko and as Zelik. Which of these versions would
have been the "official name," and which, the nickname?

Please respond to me directly at rmandelbau@aol.com.

Thank you very much,

I found a tomb - missing tombstone image #poland

Hello everyone

I managed to find the tomb is very important for me, the website of
the Foundation to document Jewish cemeteries in Poland. But for some
reason - missing picture of the monument. Does anyone know what this
means? why is it? There is a way to get the picture?

Here is the link to the tomb in town Pabianice:

Three Jewish sisters buried in Warsaw Christian cemeteries #poland

Amos Israel Zezmer
 

Dear fellow researchers,

A branch of my SZENWALD family, residing in Warsaw, seemed to have had a
predisposition to conversion. I wonder whether this was common in Poland
in the early decades of the 20th century.

Samuel "Stanislaw" SZENWALD and Fayga Perla "Felicja" GRYNBAUM had at
least five known daughters. Three of them---Adela, Helena and
Marcela---are interred in Warsaw's Evangelical and Catholic cemeteries.

Adela married Iosek ZAND, who predeceased her, in 1911, and is interred
in the Jewish cemetery of Warsaw.

Adela passed away, in 1934, and is interred in the Evangelical cemetery.

Helena married a Mr. BLESZYNSKI. She passed away, in 1925, and is
interred in the Catholic cemetery.

Marcela married a Mr. LEWINSON/LEWANSKI. She passed away, in 1918, and
is interred in the Evangelical cemetery in the same tomb as her sister
Adela.

If these three sisters (and/or Helena's and Marcela's husbands)
converted, would there be a record of their conversions somewhere? I
cannot imagine Christian cemeteries allowing Jews to be interred therein
unless they did convert. Furthermore, the surname BLESZYNSKI might have
once been a Jewish name prior to the "conversion" as LEWINSON/LEWANSKI
seems to be.

Any light you can shed on this mystery is greatly welcomed.

Best regards,

Amos ZEZMER

1888 Cadastral Map of Rzeszow on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #poland

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

We've just posted a 'new' 1888 cadastral map of Rzeszow on the Gesher
Galicia Map Room:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rzeszow-1888/

This map complements an 1849 cadastral map of the same town already on
our site, and documents the changes in town over the 38 years that had
passed between surveys. Although the structure of the town remains the
same (as much of it is today), many small parcel and building changes
are easily noted. The largest single change is the incorporation of a
large area to the south of the town center, still disputed with
Staroniwa in 1849, but by 1888 officially part of Rzeszow and growing
rapidly. Staroniwa would later be absorbed as a suburb of Rzeszow...

The original paper map is preserved by the Polish National Archives
of Rzeszow:
http://www.rzeszow.ap.gov.pl/

Rabbi Pinchus Link z"l #hungary

Dear colleagues,

I know this is a long shot but nevertheless here is my request.=20
Would anyone happen to have pictures of grave markers with the surname Link?=
I am specifically interested in those Links that were buried in the cemeter=

Thank you.

Kosice, Slovakia: Important Update to KehilaLinks Page #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg
 

To all those interested in people who once lived in Kosice, Slovakia,
I am the creator and maintainer for the KehilaLinks for that site. As
the co-worker with Peter Absolon on reading the tombstones in Kosice's
cemetery, Peter made an accidental discovery while trying to check the
spelling of a name. As a result we are pleased to advise you of an
important addition to one of the KehilaLinks pages for Kosice,
specifically on:
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kosice/Kosice-Other.html. (Scroll
down to 11 May 2016.)

Researcher Veronika Gayer collected information on the societies and
organizations that existed in Kosice between the two world wars and
wrote her 25-page results in Hungarian. >from this paper, with her
kind permission, we can now also share the compilation of membership
data readable by non-Hungarian speakers and sorted alphabetically by
family last name. (For those who can read Hungarian, a link to her
paper can be accessed there.)

In addition, special thanks to Tom Venetianer, who 12 years ago
contributed a list of Hungarian Occupations
(http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/HungarianOccupations.html)
to JewishGen that enabled Peter to also insert the English version of
the professions.

Sincerely,
