Is the Jewish cemetery in that area intact? If anyone is nearby and can get

Jayne,

Town was known as Glogow kolo Rzeszowa (Glogow near Rzeszow).
Following end of WWII and the incorporation by Poland German lands,
including town Glogau, which was renamed Glogow. "Your"Glogow has been
renamed to Glogow Malopolski.

There were two Jewish cemeteries in town, the old cemetery was established
in 1712, as usual, on the land located beyond town walls. Cemetery was
officially closed in 1935, but apparently some burials continue during WWII.
Please refer to Mr. Bielawski outstanding "kirkuty" site at:

http://www.kirkuty.xip.pl/glogow_malopolski.htm

New cemetery was established at the beginning of 20 century and according to
publication: "Krawiec J., Jewish community of G'ogow Ma'opolski', 120 people
were buried there till year 1939.

Both cemeteries have been completely destroyed, no matzevot left. Some
cemetery stones were used to improve streets hardness surfaces, and the
majority have been utilized, as usual, by the locals for their construction
needs.

NYC Records help #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

Help and or Guidance needed. Here goes.

In part, this is the info that that I sent to the Archives Center at the
Records Management Division for NYC.

I have a Birth Record #18810 dated May 21, 1893 for a male, no name PICKHOLTZ,
born at the Sloan Maternity Hospital in NYC. The father is only listed as
PICKHOLTZ, and the mother is listed as "Lena" PICKHOLTZ. (The new owners of
this hospital no longer have records going back that far.)

I also have a Death Cert. #20801, dated June 4, 1893, for a Israel PICKHOLTZ,
who died at the Hebrew Sheltering Arms, located at 210 Madison St., NYC. The
parents are listed as Jakiel and "Marie" Pickholtz. The child was said to be
14 days old at death.

If you notice, the mothers' names are different, but the time between birth
and death seem correct, so this could be the same person.

I am looking to prove this un-named PICKHOLTZ and the Israel PICKHOLTZ are one
in the same. This can only be done if the mothers are the same. This is the
only info I have been able to find on this (these) families. Can you help?

What I got >from the Archives Center was a form to fill out to get a "Birth
Record" at a cost of $15.00. I already have it as stated above in the letter
to them.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Poles Who Have Difficulty Proving They Are Jewish #general

Yasmine Lucas <yasmine.eve.lucas@...>
 

Dear all,

My name is Yasmine Lucas, and I am a PhD student in Anthropology at
the University of Toronto, focused on issues of identity, mass trauma,
and national history. I am conducting research on Poles who identify
as Jewish, or relate to Jewishness in some other way. In particular,
I am interested in how Poles who have discovered their Jewishness
later in life, and/or who have a difficult time proving that they are
Jewish, experience their Jewishness. My hope is that this study will
advance social science's understanding of the relationship between
identity on the one hand, and family and national history on the
other. Eventually, I hope for this understanding to affect popular
understandings of Jewishness in Poland, and abroad. As a Jew whose
grandparents survived the Holocaust in Poland, Jewish life here
interests me not only on an intellectual level, but also on a more
personal one.

Towards this end, I would be grateful if you, or anyone you know,
might have time to meet with me to speak about Jewish life in Poland,
and/or Jewish-identifying Poles who have difficulty proving that they
are Jewish? I will be in Poland between June 18th and July 17th.

Although portions of these conversations may be used in my written
work, I will not use people's names or anything else that might serve
to identify them. Any and all information that they provide will be
kept confidential.

Thank you for your help. Please feel free to contact me if you have
any questions.

Yours truly,

Yasmine Lucas, Toronto, Canada

Seeking Grave Photo - Glogow, Poland #general

jayne s <batsncats@...>
 

My great-grandfather, Avraham Heuman, passed away around 1910. The family lived
in a village in or near Glogow, Poland. My aunt told me that mail to the family
used to be addressed to "Glogow Colo Jeshuv" (not entirely sure about the
spelling).

Is the Jewish cemetery in that area intact? If anyone is nearby and can get a
grave photo, or let me know if there's any record of his grave, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
