Re: Polish Word: "wnuczka." #general

Julia Koszewska <julia_koszewska@...>
 

"Wnuczka" in polish means: "granddaughter"
Regards- Julia Koszewska

On a page of testimony, the submitter's relationship was given, in
Polish, as "wnuczka." Can someone tell me what it means.

Danzig surname adoption list, 1814 #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

What WONDERFUL news that we now have the Danzig surname adoption list up on
line. My thanks to Logan Kleinwaks and to Peter Lustig. It could not have
been an easy task.

My own ancestor is number 355: Israel Salomon LEBUNG (spelled in later
documents as LEBURG or LOEBURG). He was my great, great grandfather. He
named a son of his later years Salomon as well, so I am assuming that he was
Israel, son of Salomon.

I had always assumed that I could connect him (as a brother) to other
listings of men who had a second name as Salomon, however, I found 20 men
who fall into this category, including:

Peisach Salomon COHN
Aaron Salomon DEUTSCHLAND
Wulf Salomon FRIEDLAENDER
Abraham Salomon GOLDSCHMIDT
Baer Salomon GOLDSTINE
Hirsch Salomon GOTTHILF
David Salomon GOLDSCHMIDT
Joel Salomon GOLDSTEIN
Aaron Simon Salomon HIRSCH
Jacob Salomon JACOBI............

So I guess that does not work.

I also thought that I could find his father as someone who had the first
name of Salomon, however I found 14 who fall into this category, including:

Salomon Leyser AUERBACK
Salomon Marcus BADEN
Salomon Jacob COHN
Salomon Itzig FUERSTENBERG
Salomon Leyser HIRSCHFIELD
Salomon Michael LOEWENBERG
Salomon Wulff LEWITZ......

Including two named Salomon with NO second name:

171 Salomon FISCHEL
258 Salomon HEYMANNSOHN

And one named Samuel who took the surname SALOMON

So, I wonder how likely would it be that the father of Israel Salomon was:

81 Salomon Israel BENDIX ?

Or would number 81 be related to:

26 Lewin BENDIX
240 Joseph Bendix HIRSCH
375 Bendix Moses LOEWENSTEIN ???

Have any of our members been able to find familial connections using this
list?
I would appreciate any thoughts on this subject.

With best wishes for a happy Mother's Day for all of you who fall into this
category.

I am pleased to announce that the list of surnames adopted by Jewish
citizens in Danzig in 1814, when Prussia reoccupied the city, is now online
in the Articles section of our SIG website www.jewishgen.org/danzig.
Judging >from your JewishGen Family Finder entries, many of you can find
surnames you are researching on this list.

Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) Meeting
Sunday, May 21, 2006
2 pm
Polish Museum of America
Chicago, Illinois

PGSA meetings are open to the public! After the meeting will be the
following speaker:

LARRY STILLMAN will give a presentation of his book, A Match Made in Hell:
The Jewish Boy and the Polish Bandit Who Defied the Nazis.

Left for dead beneath his father's lifeless body, teenaged Morris GOLDNER is
rescued and protected by the enigmatic outlaw-turned-mercenary, Jan Kopec.
The bandit trains the boy in combat and sabotage and then sells his services
to a shadowy resistance group. Hiding together for 18 months, these two
disparate personalities forge a remarkable friendship born of need and
desperation.

Mr. Stillman will also discuss his extensive research including a trip to
Poland where he uncovered old secrets and interviewed former partisans who
still live in the area.

Honors and Awards:

Town of Zula, in Prussia ? #poland

Airbair@...
 

My gg aunt's death certificate, issued in Chicago in 1928, gives her
birth location about 1850 as "Zula, Germany." Other members of the family
were born in Ostrowo and Gnesen, then in Prussia, which I believe are
Ostrow Wielkepolska and Gniezno, near Poznan in present-day Poland.

If any readers of this list can identify the town of Zula, please
respond privately.

I have also sent this message to the GerSIG list.

Thank you!

Patricia,

You are most probably searching for place Cwitowa, and it can be
challenging and confusing a bit since there were two Cwitowa and at
the same time also two Podkamien in Poland.

One Cwitowa was located in district Buczacz near towns Brody and
Jazlowiec (currenly known as Pomortsy) in Tarnopol Province.

The other Cwitowa was located in Kalusz district near towns Bukaczowce
and Bursztyn in Stanislawow Province.

I have measured distances >from both Cwitowa to both town named Podkamien
in Stanislawow Tarnool and at appears that your Cwitowa is one in
Stanislawow region.
It is known currently as Tsvitova at 4913 2428.
Podkamien at 4927 2429 is located 16 miles >from Tsvitova.
