success. Does anyone recognize???
Froim [Froh yim], Efroim, Efraim derivative >from Hebrew Ephraim. In Russia
another local form of Ephraim was also popular - Fima.

It's a Yiddish contraction of the Hebrew name Efrayim (English spelling
usually
Ephraim). The origin is biblical (Genesis 41:52).

Plozk Yeshiva and Yishuv #general

Aliza <alizam@...>
 

Dear All,
from a letter written by my great uncle to my father I have
learned that my great Grandfather Sholom Dov Ber Steinhart
born @1856 in Vitebsk went to live with an uncle on a Yishuv
near Plozk. I believe the word Yishuv refers to the Jewish
Agricultural Colonies. I have found names of a few
settlements in that area >from the Jewish Encyclopedia.com:
Kukhari, Dzhikovich, and Rodolobovka but have been unable to
find any information about those settlements. The letter
states that he studied at the Plotzke Yeshiva as well.
Can anyone confirm for me that Yishuv does refer to the
agricultural colonies?
Can anyone help me find information about the colonies in
the area of Plozk? I have already tried using the shtetlinks
at jewishgen.
Any information on the subject of the family name and towns
mentioned would be most appreciated.
Sincerely,
Aliza Maor

In 2001 I met with the libraries director Jan Leonczuk. He is very
knowledgeable about the history of the Bialystok area. Unfortunately he
doesn't seem to speak English. I had a translator and was also with a
Polish friend who knows him quite well. I think having just met me he
was understandably somewhat reluctant to entirely open up to me. His
first concern was to establish that "Zabludow was no Yedwabne".

Thanks to the Moderator #general

Susanna Vendel <svendel@...>
 

I want to thank the Moderator for letting through the explanations
about the "travelling Hanukkiah".
Born immediately after 2ww I grew up in Romania , under a very
restrictive communist regime and my parents never taught me religion
or Jewish history. I am now, through Jewishgen, discovering
a new world and therefore I am very interested in everything that has
connection with it.

I consider Jewishgen not only a genealogical forum but an
educational one. And information about historical, regional and religious
subjects can help me/us to better understand our families and predecessors
lives.

Thanks again to the Moderator and of course to Naomi Fatouros and Judith
Romney Wegner who brought light over the subject and finally to Donna Rice
for bringing up the question.

Hebrew Subscription Lists? (Sefer HaPrenumerantn) #general

Tom Chatt
 

In the book _Where We Once Walked_, one of the sources referenced is called
the Hebrew Subsription Lists (Sefer HaPrenumerantn). It is also one of the
primary sources for Chester Cohen's _Shtetl Finder_. As it is described, it
seems to be a list of people who had prepaid for various books to be
published. It sounds like a fascinating resource, as not only would it give
you a list of names of people and their villages, but it would let you know
what they were reading! :-) Has anyone seen this book before? Can someone
describe in a bit more detail what kind of information can be found in it?
Also, is it written in Yiddish or in English?

Thanks!

Anybody know of a Rabbi George Gottlieb, who resided on Ridge Street, in the

great-grandparents. It would be interesting to find out what congregation
this rabbi served, where he was from, etc. If this name rings a bell with

Info on NYC marriage cert #general

Elynn Boss <bossgen@...>
 

I want to thank Lynn Shapiro for putting the web site address for the
online search for LDS index of marriage records. I have in the past
written directly to NY for my great-grandfathers brothers marriage
records with I only had an approximate date for. Of course they weren't
found, and of course I paid money for the search of not found.

I went to the web site www.familysearch.org and keyed Herman Abrahams
married to Ide in the US. Bingo - found them married in NYC in May 1904
- parents names were the same and my great-grandfather which is what I
have been trying to confirm. Then I did Abraham Abrahams to Rose and
bingo again - found Abe Abrahams to Rosie - again with the same parents.

Thank you so much for the tip that has opened a door for me. Now to get
the actual record.

How to find records of those who came into the Port of Baltimore, or
possibly Philadelphia, rather than into New York/Ellis Island.

All of those records are available at NARA in Philadelphia, and also in
Washington DC. They are indexed, including the time periods not indexed
for NYC.

I would help you on this but for our move >from the PHila area on August 30.

Perhaps one of the readers of this list >from the Phila area/JGSGP can try to

at least look at the index films for you (I don't know how much they are

Mother and daughter with same first name? #poland

Roberta Berman <rbrta@...>
 

I am also interested in the answer to this. I have a woman who was born in
Lomza about 1860 and given the name Chaya. I have a copy of her birth
record.

Her daughter was born in Lomza about 1885, but I have not located a birth
record for her and I do not know what name she was given in Poland. The
family came to the United States in 1892. The mother and daughter both
had the name Ida in the U. S.
