Vilna Birth Certificate #general

How can one obtain a copy of a birth certificate of a person born in Vilna in
1926. I have searched thru multiple sites to no avail>>

Due to the 100 year privacy law, a 1926 birth record will not be available until
2027. However, a personal message to the Central archive in Vilnius, Lithuania may
bring you results. If you can send a copy of a death record, showing the person is
no longer living, that would be a big help. Also, you must state your relationship
to the person whose birth record you are seeking.

Letter of thanks to Margaret #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Shalom,
I want to thank >from the depth of my heart to Malgorzata
Andrzejewska-Bancewicz (Margaret).
Margaret did the unbelievable and found for me my 70 - year old first
cousin, who did not know about my existence. The process was like this: I
have found an envelope >from the year 1966 with my father's sister address
from Gdynia. Margaret went to that address and found that this apartment
still belongs to this family.
I don't know how, but she also got me the phone number of the tenants.
After several attempts someone actually picked up the handset and it turned
out to be my aunt's granddaughter. Since then, everything has been a
history. The cousin who did not know anyone >from the extended family, was
very excited to find kinship and since then we correspond almost daily and
have exchanged information. Maybe we will also meet sometime.
Margaret also has found my aunt's grave and also is trying to help me to
find another cousin who probably lives in Wrozlaw.
There are no words to thank her for the help she handed me, it is simply
amazing. Of course without this assistance, such an outcome could not occur
since I did not know anyone in Gdynia.
On my behalf and on the behalf of my family, thank you again and all the
best to you dear Margaret,

Re: Geszoff - Rzeszow - Zhesuf and more #galicia

Phyllis Kramer
 

Rivka is quite right about the town Rzeszow... and that there are many
Galician towns which Jews had a different name for. I would add that
the wonderful thing about JewishGen's Community Pages, is we can
query for the Yiddish town name there.

examples:

Dubiecko [Pol], Dibetsk [Yid], Dubatsk, Dubetsko, Dubetsk, Dubietzko,
Dubyetsko

Rzeszow [Pol], Raysha [Yid], Zheshuv [Rus], Riashiv [Ukr], Zesova [Latv],
Resovia [Lat], Resov [Cz], Reisha, Risha, Rayshe, Raishov, Zheshov,
Zhezhov

And with the soundex and other query possibilities, searching is easier...

Happy hunting!

Thank you, Rivka Schirman, for your very useful list of Yiddish / Polish
names of former Galician towns in the former Eastern Galicia, now
Ukraine.

I would like to correct one town's Polish spelling and clarify its location:
Brezhiv- Brzozow - Lwow - Brzorzow

This Polish town before, between, and after 1920-1939 has always been
spelled Brzozow. It is the ancestral town of my Kellerman family, was in
Western Galicia during the Austrian Empire, and has remained in Poland
ever since (except during WWII).

Between 1920-1939, Poland included both Western and Eastern Galicia.
After 1945, Western Galicia remained in Poland and Eastern Galicia
became part of Ukraine; however, parts of the Lwow province nearest
Poland remained in Poland. This is where Brzozow is located. Unlike
most of the other towns in the list, Brzozow is not in Ukraine. This also
applies to a few other towns in the list that were once in Lwow
Province, including Rzeszow.

Thanks again for your posts!

Meir of Zabludow #poland

Marea Foster <mareacf@...>
 

I am wondering if there are others who can trace their Zabludow
ancestors back to the early 1800's, and what they might know of life
at that time.

My 3x great grandfather was born in Zabludow in about 1800, and we
think he departed in around 1820. >from the few records that exist we
believe he settled in London, married and then moved to Liverpool, UK
in around 1834. His headstone in the Deane Road Jewish Cemetery says
that his father's name was Ytzak Meir of Zabludow. My 3x great
grandfather's name was Marcus (Mordechai) Jacobs, so we assume he
changed his name to Jacobs when he came to England. On the existing
taxpayers records seen on Tilford Bartman's Zabludow website there
seem to be no similar names, so it has not been possible to make any
real connections to date. I am hoping that someone may have some
knowledge of these very early Zabludow years and would be interested
to know more about this period, even if there is no knowledge of the
names I have given.

Kind regards
