Naming a newborn after a sibling who died earlier #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

I am searching my maternal family KOENIGSBUCH from
Brzesko, Galicia and am making a steady progress.

Recently I came twice across a phenomenon of a
child(male) which died very early, within a year from
birth, and then the next child which was born was
given the same name.

I would like to hear how common such custom was,if at
all.

Thanks.

May I thank all those very kind people who have helped me by offering
translation, partial and total, and other assistance in connection with
my posting. I have been overwhelmed and now know that this document
relates to my great-grandparents.

This assistance, through JRI-Poland, is the most wonderful aid to
resarchers and I cannot praise it, or the people who respond to it,
too highly. Thank you all!

Best wishes

Hello Everyone

Maybe indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents with its 180 volumes, 1440
households and perhaps 200,000 entries is too daunting a task.

However, maybe LARG can set aside an online area for a database. There,
people who already researched the Lodz Book of Residents could donate their
information, and as other people obtain information in the future, they too
can post their information so it can be shared with all Lodz researchers.

A standardized form should be developed for the compiled information so it
is easily searched and presented online. As a first thought, there can be an
area where a copy of the original page >from the Book of Residents can be
seen along and a part 2 with a place for the translation if available.

Indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents in Lodz would be a fantastic
project, but it is an enormous enormous task.

I have just talked to Stanley Diamond about it. He estimates that there
are
180 volumes, 1440 households, and perhaps 200,000 entries. It could only
be
done by professional archivists in Poland and would cost between $30,000
and
$50,000.

Dear Lodzers,

What would be the cost of microfilming all of these books

I have just such a case in my own Lomza-Gubernia family. My pgm had a
younger brother, known to my parents, named Hersz. According to the LDS
microfilms, there was indeed a brother of the same name, but he was a bit
older than my gm, a fact that had me going around in circles for a good two
years. Later it developed that my ggm, the mother of these three, had become
widowed shortly after the birth of my gm, and that the older Hersz had also
died. The younger one, offspring of a second marriage that I had not known
about and bearer of the recycled name, was therefore only the half brother
of my gm, not her brother as everyone in the family had thought for so many
years.

Seeking FEINGOLD, GLANSET/GLANZET, KLUMENS, KATZ #general

Joan Rimmon
 

Hi, Jewishgenners,
This is my first time addressing the total Jewishgen audience since my
interests have been in the GERSIG, LATVIA and EARLYAMERICAN sigs.

I am at some brickwalls and hope that someone out there knows something
about my "seekees".

A maternal cousin Rhona WEINBERG, who was born in Oklahoma, raised in
Youngstown, Ohio, married Herman FEINGOLD about 1927-28 and in the 1930 census I
found them in Queens. I was told (by another cousin) that they had sons, but
since the 1940 census has not become available, I don't know their names. If
anyone knows anything about this family I would appreicate a response.

My maternal grandfather came >from Latvia and when he became a citizen
changed his name >from GLANSET or GLANZET (it was very difficult to read the
manifest and his papers) to GLANZ, my maiden name. His mother was Frieda KLUMENS
and she was one of three wives who my great-grandfather Alexander married. I
don't know the names of the other wives, but he sired 17 children. I would like
to know anyone who may have been descended >from that large clan, >from any
wife.

Another maternal cousin, Milton KATZ, married a non-Jew and sired three
children, 2 sons, 1 daughter Katheryn. After he died his wife raised the children
as non-Jews, but the daughter left the fold and married a Jew. She was
ostracized by her mother (funny since she had married a Jew) and the family lost
touch with her. None of the living generation of KATZes know the married name
of the daughter or her children. They were living in New Jersey when Milton
died. I'm hoping there is someone out there who may know the descendants of
Katheryn.

Any help would be appreciated. Wishing you a pleasant Shavuot holiday and a
peaceful Sabbath, I am Joan Glanz RIMMON, Los Angeles

"Modern Studio" (photography) #general

Dear Genners,

I've gotten hold of a treasure trove of family photos. The oldest
members of the family are stumped by some of them. One of the photos was
taken by the "Modern Studio" -- all the other photos with a studio name
have an address but this one doesn't. Trying to search Modern Studio on
Google isn't really feasible. If anyone has a guess as to location, that
might help jog some memories and we could possibly figure out the children
in the photo. Thanks.

Please reply privately.
