Gittle ABRAMOWITZ-New Haven, Ct. 1880s #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My late mother, Adina KATZOFF, wrote an autobiography in which she
relates the following story. As she does not give specific dates and
many names are missing I would like to know if the story sounds
familiar to anyone.

My mother's great grandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ, a widow with 4
children, left the tow/city of Novarodok (around 1880s) and reached
New Haven, Ct. She remarried an Englishman, either on the way to the
USA or in New Haven. I do not know the name of her second husband but
according to another version in the family she did marry an Englishman
by the name of LAZAROFF..

When she arrived in New Haven, her oldest son (David?) was 15 years
old and he left to Boston to seek his fortune. My mother thinks he
changed his family name. He worked in a dept. store and rose to
management (possibly marrying into the owner's family). When my
grandfather, Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ emmigrated from
Palestine to Hartford, Ct. in the late 1920s he tried to contact his
uncle but was brushed off.

Gittle's daughter Sara eventually moved to New York and joined the
"Bund" a Jewish communist labor organization.She may have married a
COHEN. According to my mother, Sarah had a grandson Tom, whose father
was not Jewish and seems to have lived and studied in Boston. He
visited his grandmother, Sarah who vacationed on Coney Island as my
mother's family did. Tom met my mother by chance on the beach in Coney
Island in the mid 1930s.

With Gittle's other 2 children's (Mayer and Kalman) descendants' I am
in close contact.

TIA

Parents' Birth Records in Warsaw Archives #galicia

Fred Huss
 

Hello Siggers,

I recently sent an email to the Polish archives in Warsaw to ask for
help locating the birth records for both of my parents.

I received an answer >from them that stated a birth record was found
for my mother, and I would need to send evidence of who her
parents were and documents proving she is my mother. That I'll be
able to do. What they also stated is that I would need to have a
correspondent >from Europe or Poland who would represent my
interests in order to pursue the retrieval if the records. (They
attached a form for someone to sign, I guess to agree to be my
representative.)

Any ideas how I could best move forward with this?

Send answers to my private email.

Re: Visit JewishGen’s New Website!

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi Avraham,

Nice new website design. One thing I miss from the old version is the simple box to search for a town name. I see the link to the Communities Database and that is great, but a direct search box to input a town name to find town pages was something I liked to use for a quick search.

This new message system is very interesting and seems to work well so far. It is nice not to have to go to plain text (something I would always forget and have my message bounced back to me) and have the ability to insert attachments.

I was wondering: is there a simple way online to locate Hungarian

of you know, these are a very helpful tool for understanding family
ties. However, I never managed to search for those systematically -
only by chance on Google.

Re: Where was Okenin, Austria? #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Donna Lester asked: Has anyone ever heard of Okenin, Austria?
Any information would be appreciated, as well as how to search for
vital records >from there.

Donna...I couldnt find the town in our community pages, which have
towns with significant Jewish population and/or institutions around
1900...but I did find one possibility in our gazetteer. Since you said
Austria...I looked for a town in either Poland or Ukraine today, as
most Jews lived in the Austrian province of Galicia in those days, and
that area was absorbed into both Poland and Ukraine after World War I.

Using the Gazetteer, and the DM Soundex, I found about 20 towns named Okonin...
but the only Galician town I found was Okonin 5003/2133, south of
Warsaw, 3 miles >from Ropczyce in the Rzeszow district of Galicia
I noted on GesherGalicia.org's town locator, that this town's Jewish
center was Ropczyce and that should tell us that is where the records
for this small town are located.

Try searching for your surname around Ropczyce (5003/2137) on
JewishGen's Poland country database,
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland and
search.geshergalicia.org

Good luck with your search
