Norm,

Your Kolnszek, Poland could be Koluszki, situated east of Lodz. There
was a Jewish community there before the war, and a ghetto during the
war. The genitive case will be "Koluszek".

Hi all,

I just received naturalization papers for cousin who states she was born
in Kolnszek, Poland. I have been unable to find this town in town finder
or the Mormon film list. Neither "Where Once We Walked" or "Jewish Roots
in Poland" list the town name.Could it be a Yiddish name for Kolno or
Kolo?

Thanks for any insight.

Thanks to the generosity of a few members of jewishgen I believe
I now know my ancestor's real name. I was brought up with the
name Zelnick, but now I think my grandfather was really
Moses Salnik >from Peschana. Is there anyone out there with a
Salnik ancestor or last name that would like to find out if we
could possibly be related? I appreciate any replies.
Thank you all again.

Bonjour My great grandfather was Boris Bernard DOUBNIKOFF (DOUBNIKOV).
I have a copy of his death certificate, Paris, 1918. His parents are
Isaac and Helka DOUBNIOV, and he was born in Kwaska, 1848. I believe
this is now Gvodetz. Other documentationsaid Kiev, but there are no
records in their archives. I know that Boris had a brother called
Moise who wasmarried to Bonnia Rassa ROWINOVA. Moise was a tailor
from Alexandrovski. Their son, Robert, married Jeanne/Genia SCHANDALOW
in Paris, 1900. I would appreciate further assistance to find out more
about Boris, Moise, any other siblings and their parents.
Thanks

Re: my family in peschana #ukraine

Could this be Peschanaya? Yad Vashem's "Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before
and During the Holocaust" has the following entry:

PESCHANAYA (also Peschanka) Vinnitsa dist, Ukr. Jewish settlement commenced
in the early 19th cent. and reached a pop. of 3,682 (total 7,506) in 1897.
A talmud torah was operating in the 1880s and later on a private J. school
for boys. In the late 1920s, under the Soviets, about 120 J. families
earned their livelihoods in agriculture. A J. elementary school operated
until the 1930s. In 1939, the J. pop. was 1,602. The Germans occupied P.
on 23 July 1941. On 3 Aug. an Einsatzkommando 10a unit murdered ten Jews.
Presumably, the same unit murdered most of the town's Jews in the same
month.

I see no other Ukrainian town in the encyclopedia with a similar name
(although there was a similar named town in Moldavia with a much smaller
Jewish population.

Translation of 19th century German script ViewMate #germany

Paula Weil
 

Can anyone translate 19th century German script? I am researching my
maternal great grandfather's family >from Stebbach Baden. His name was
David EISEMAN. His parents were Wolf EISENMANN and Fradel KAUFMANN.

His birth record, the birth records of two of his siblings, the
marriage record of his parents and the death record of his father are
now on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17798

The records date >from 1833 to 1847. I've never seen one of these
records translated. So If possible, I'd like a complete translation
of each record. I am particularly interested in the names of the
family members and the occupations of Wolf Eisenmann and his father
and father-in-law if that information is included.
In advance, I'd like to thank anyone who can help me with this.

In September of 2010 Jan Meisels Allen reported a proposed rulling by

ruling was? More specifically, I am trying to obtain mental health
records >from the Terrell State Asylum in Kaufman County, Texas for
someone who died in 1918.

Does anyone know if such a thing is yet possible?
