Sokolka Burial Society #poland

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

Dear Group-
My ggp are buried at the old Mt Carmel cemetery in NY. They are buried in the grounds of the Anshe Sokolka burial society.

There are two Sokolka's in Poland. One at 5325 2330 (131.8 mi NE of Warsaw) and the other at 5237 2153 (45 mi NE of Warsaw). Does anyone know which Sokolka the burial society represents?

Thank you and best regards,

Two town names that cause confusion - Stanislawow and Minsk Mazowiecki #poland

Susan Stone <stonegs@...>
 

As the Archive Coordinator for the Siedlce Poland Archives, I receive many
e-mails >from researchers inquiring about information for their towns.
Sometimes researchers assume their ancestors lived in a town located in
Siedlce Gubernia, when in fact their families came >from a similarly named
town in another part of Europe.

Two examples come to mind. Stanislawow in Siedlce Gubernia is 12 km north
of Minsk Mazowiecki and 41 km east of Warsaw. Another town, formerly named
Stanislawow, is located in the former Galicia province of Poland and is now
called Ivano Frankovsk (in Ukraine). Jewish Records Indexing-Poland has
indexed records >from both these towns. "Where Once We Walked" contains
entries for 9 additional towns and villages named Stanislawow.

Another town name that generates confusion is Minsk Mazowiecki. Some
researchers assume that this town, located 40 km east of Warsaw, is their
ancestral home. In the majority of cases, their families originated from
Minsk (located in Belarus), hundreds of miles to the east of Minsk
Mazowiecki.

There are a number of resources available to help you identify the correct
town where your ancestors lived. A good place to start is with Warren
Blatt's FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) of JewishGen, #11 FINDING YOUR
ANCESTRAL TOWN, http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/faq.html#Towns. This
section points the way to many sources of information.

After you have identified the correct town, be sure to list this town on the JewishGen Family Finder so that you and other researchers can share
information.

Dear members,

I am trying to find the members of David SHAPIRO's family.
It seams that part of my NEPOMNYASHCHY family
(>from Pochep, Russia), who immigrated to the USA in
1923 came to stay with their son-in-law David
Shapiro. He lived in 2035 Croston Ave. in the
Bronx, N.Y. I wonder if any of you are related to
these families, or know anything about
them or their descendents.
If you do, please let me know!

There are five separate citations in Where Once We

Poland and Belarus. At YIVO there is a designation for
the Horodoker Benevolent Society as Belarussian in

anyone know for sure the geographic location of this

Israeli newspaper in Russian #general

Dear members,

I have written letters to persons (who submitted
names to "Yad ve'Shem") that immigrated to Israel
from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. Most have been
returned because of invalid address. I have tried to
get their currant one,but was un successful.
I was wondering if there is Russian language
newspaper (or more then one) published in Israel,
and if they have a section for family search.
I would like to put an ad in them, and for
that I need an address.
Can any one help me?

Thanks, and a Happy Khanuka to all.

asked for a photograph of the Synagogue in Katowice.

A google search turned up two views of this
imposing synagogue at:

http://www.edwardvictor.com/KatowiceFrame2Source1.htm

The first view shows a domed church in the distance.
The second shows a view juxtaposed with the large
church on the opposite side of the street.

You will find, if you inspect the top postcard more
thoroughly, that the "domed church in the distance"
appears to be the synagogue: compare it with the
building in the left foreground of the second card.
Am I wrong?

The buildings respectively in the right foregrounds
of the cards look to me more like hotels
than churches.
