Subj: ViewMate translation request – Polish/Russian #poland

ingrid rockberger
 

I've posted two vital records in Polish and one in Russian for which I
would be very grateful for translations. They are on ViewMate at the
following addresses:

This record in Polish is the marriage record of my paternal great
grandparents.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66415


This record in Polish is the birth record of my paternal great grandfather.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66416

This one -- in Russian -- is hopefully the birth record of my
husband's grandfather.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66428

If translators don't have time to translate the full record,
please translate information of genealogical interest:
names, dates, towns/villages.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

I noticed that there are the letters "s. k." consistently after all the names in
the b/m/d register, including the groom, bride, the witnesses' names, and the
registrar. (in the declaration part at the right end of the page.) Does anyone
know what this notation means?

USHMM New Online Exhibit- Americans and the Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened a new exhibit in
Washington D.C. today- April 23, 2018, entitled "Americans and the
Holocaust". There is also a free, online exhibit which may be access by
going to: https://exhibitions.ushmm.org/americans-and-the-holocaust/main.

The new exhibit was five years in the making. It paints a portrait of
American society in the 1930s-40s, exploring the factors that shaped our
responses to Nazism, war, and the Holocaust. It also asks why, if Americans
knew so much, rescuing Jews did not become a priority-except for a few
individuals who chose to help. The exhibit starts in 1933 and ends in
December 1945

One part of the exhibit was a public opinion poll after Kristallnacht: Do
you approve or disapprove of the Nazi treatment of Jews in Germany? 94%
disapprove 6 % approve. The follow-up question is telling of the
environment during the times:
Should we allow a larger number of Jewish exiles >from Germany to come to the
United States to live?
71 percent No; 21 percent yes and 8 percent no opinion.
Another poll taken December 1945:
Should we permit more persons >from Europe to come to this country each year
than we did before the war, should we keep the number about the same, or
should we reduce the number? 37 percent fewer; 32 percent the same, 14%
none at all; 5 % more and 12 percent no opinion.

I am struggling with family names. Found a record on JRI-Poland for my

born in Suwalki 1861, lists her maiden name as Jankielowska. We know Aharon
is not the same as Jankiel, so is Jankielowska a last name or a patronymic
name? When would real surnames have begun in Suwalki? Before that time,
would patronymics have been used?


Diane,

The two main groups of Jewish surnames origin were toponysm (place names)
and patronymics.

In Russia proper set of rules that have governed Jewish surnames
were introduced initially on December 9, 1804 bit due to slow progress have been
reinforced in 1835 and again, in 1850.

In Russian Poland ten guberniyas surnames were adopted in 1821.

Jankielowska, a female surname variation of male surname Jankielowski. If
Jankiel was her father, she was officially known as:
Her first name, Aharonowna (or Aronovna), ie daughter of Aharon (Aron)
Jankielowska.
