JRI Poland #Poland Names of Jews in pre-WW2 Kanth ,now Polish Katy Wroclawskie #poland

Gerald and Margaret
 

I am trying to find more information about the 4 Jewish families who lived
in pre-WW2 Silesian Kanth (now Katy Wroclawskie), a small town
22km SW of Breslau (now Wroclaw). I am want to apply to the Municipality
of Katy Wroclawskie for permission to install some Stolpersteine

My paternal grandparents , Adolf STEIN (1875-1942) and Frieda MASUR
(1882-1942) owned a men's outfitters there, >from the time of their
marriage in 1912 until they were forced to move to Breslau prior
to their murder in 1942. Their 3 children moved to safety in England
between 1934 and 1939.

One of the 2 family doctors was Dr HEIDENFELD who lived there with
his wife and 2 daughters. One daughter , Hortense (b1920) left
in 1939 on a domestic servant's permit to the UK. She is alive
and well in NW London. The rest of her family were murdered.

Another family was called JUNGMANN. The 4th family owned a shoe shop.

It is helpful to know as much as possible about all the Jews who lived
in a town pre-WW2 and then were forced to leave, Any suggestions of
where to find out more are most welcome. When I have this
information, I plan to contact the Mayor of Katy Wroclawskie.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Origins of Khvat Surname #general

Adam Cherson
 

I've received several responses giving Beider's definition of the Polish word
'chwat': 'plucky, dashing, and gallant'. These may apply to some instances of the
surname, but in the case of a kohanic, rabbinical family, these seem off track.

I wonder if the rabbinical Chayot (aka Chajes) surname could somehow have been
transformed across various languages, alphabets, pronunciations, and spellings into
Chwat, the Hebrew spelling of former, khes-yud-vov-tof, becoming k
hes-vov-vov-aleph-tes?

Oh well, only time will tell...

I narrowed it down to two ED's (one of the cross streets apparently didn't exist

living in NY back then.
More than likely, the name of the cross street changed. See this part
of Steve Morse's site for info on street name changes to assist you in
finding the current street: https://stevemorse.org/census/changes.html

Rather than trying to search the census by name, locate the proper ED,
then, as I had indicated to you, click on the ED, which should bring up
an option to view the images on FamilySearch (as well as other sites).
You will then need to advance through the film to locate the proper
street and address. However, if you consult a map & try to imagine how
the census enumerator walked the ED, you should be able to locate the
proper image quickly. As a test, I randomly took a few Manhattan
addresses >from my own database & was able to locate each of them in 1900
& 1910 censuses in just a few minutes (and, coincidentally, saw a couple
of Rosenthals along the way

The 1905 NY census is only visible on Ancestry and I'm not a paid member of
Ancestry, so I can't access it.
Ancestry may be accessed for free at the Richmond Public Library (in person,
not online >from home) as well as the Richmond Family History Center
(5600 Monument Ave).

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching for "Affidavit for Support" by Herman S. FISCHLER #general

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear fellow researchers,
My cousin told me that her parents, Berl and Lina BEUTEL (or BEITEL) LEMLER of
Vienna, received an "Affidavit for Support" >from a cousin of Lina's mother, around
1938. This cousin, Herman S. FISCHLER (not "FISCHER"), was married and a furrier
in Manhattan - that is all she knew about him. The LEMLERs could not get out in
time, and died in camps. Online, I found Herman S. FISCHLER, a Manhattan furrier.
The only way I know to link him with my family is via this "Affidavit for Support".
(I have not found FISCHLER genealogy records online, or a link to historical
Affidavits.) Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Many thanks!

For those of you with interest in the shtetl of Lechowitz Ukraine, or nearby towns
like Kremenets and Yampol, take a look at this website:
https://sites.google.com/view/lechowitz. Lechowitz Ukraine now goes by the name of
Belogorye (Russian) or Bilohirya (Ukrainian). This is a completely different town
than the Lechowitz in Belarus, but frequently gets confused with that town. In
fact, vital records >from Lechowitz Ukraine are often lumped into those for
Lechowitz Belarus. Immigrants >from Lechowitz Ukraine often migrated to cities in
the American mid-west, especially Omaha Nebraska, Council Bluffs Iowa, and
St Louis Missouri. Others went to larger cities like Chicago and New
York, or to Palestine.
