Koszewicki in Zabludow #poland

Todd Leavitt <toddl@...>
 

I recently discovered that my wife's family, which we always knew as
"Rosenblatts", were actually named Koszewicki (Aron-Judel Fejwelewicz
Kosowicki b.1870; Feigel Fanny Dubitsky Koszewika b. 1878 and six children)
and were resident in Zabludow in @ 1903. Would anyone have any further
information about this family?

Romanian death record on ViewMate -- translation help requested #romania

Renee Steinig
 

Thanks to the wonderful Czernowitz BMD database now at
http://microtarget.com/czernowitz/CzernowitzBMDindex.htm , I was able
to easily identify and obtain the Feb. 1924 death record of my
mother's first cousin, Hersch LEHR. Hersch was the young son of Eisig
LEHR and Rivka REIFER of Neuzuczka (Jucica-Noua). My mother, who was
then 15 and living with her Aunt Rivka's family, spoke many times of
this little boy, whose death she recalled with much sadness.

I have put the image on ViewMate...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM31872

I would especially like to know Hersch's age and/or birth date, his
burial place (Sadagura?), and the cause of his death, but I would be
very grateful to have a translation of all entries if possible.

Many thanks to Daniel Horowitz and all the volunteers involved with
creating the Czernowitz database and thank you in advance to anyone
who can help me understand my cousin's death record.

Re: Middle name Baraf? #general

Snillop47@...
 

I recently asked about a family where the father and a son had the middle
name Baraf. I asked what it might mean. I received 9 responses with several
different suggestions. Many thanks who took the trouble to send e-mails.
These included 'Baruch', 'Barak', 'First-born' (plausible because the son
with that name was the first-born, his other siblings did not). I think the
most likely explanation,sent by 3 people, was 'Ben-Harav', son of a rabbi.
However, although the father was certainly religious, being president of a
synagogue associated with the United Synagogue in London, I have no
knowledge of a rabbi in the family.

The surname of the family was WALTERS and they were confectioners and
produced the well-known toffee Walters Palm Toffee. This was sold in decorated
tins which I notice are now collectors' items.

This is not true. The Kriegsarchiv in Vienna has documents on soldiers, too!
I have in my hand a document on the decoration of the ancestor of one of my
clients. He was a simple gunman! And the document was there and was handed
over to me by the Hungarian Delegation.

But the database is gappy, many documents are missing, unfortunately.

Here are their contact details.

When I wrote to Vienna they said that they only kept records of the
officers.
The letter was in German which I had translated.

Two years later I wrote to them again. This time in English. They daisy aid
the same thing and they said " last time we wrote you in German. This time
in English. " Seems they keep good records but not of soldiers who weren't
officers.

My grandfathers Max Kreisz and Meyhardt Roth both served in the Hungarian
army.
