"Kislowigme"
Considering the Flemish soft-g, soft-e and soft-s pronunciation,
Kozlowice
seems reasonable close.

ATKATZ survivor's US Family Found Thank you #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Genners,
Thank you to all who responded instantly with thoughtful suggestions and with
additional clues. I was able to make a huge breakthrough today, talking with four
close cousins to the surviving Mr. Atkatz who are thrilled to learn of him and who
are sending me photos to share with Mr. Atkatz when I return to Lithuania. (I also
learned >from those I reached that the family members I had been unable to find would
not be interested in being found for a number of reasons). Today was a rewarding
culmination of the search. Thanks again for your help.
Best Regards,
Susan Goldsmith

Polish town of Kislowigme #warsaw #poland

robert roudman <rcroudman@...>
 

Hello friends,
A relative's grand uncle listed the Polish town of Kislowigme (sic) on his
1909 ships manifest.
I believe that the clerk in Antwerp wrote what he believed he heard,(in his
own difficult hand)>from the lips of a Yiddish speaking teenager, bearing
this in mind could this be a small town in Poland? The family oral history
mentioned Poland as the homeland. Which town could it be. I have used Shtetl
Finder and found Kozlowice Nowe in Poland, & Nizhniye Kozlovichi, Belarus.
When I tried the town name Kislowszcyzna, taken >from a Yiskor Book index,
Shtetl Finder gave me the following town names: Kizielewszczyzna, Poland;
Kozlowice Stare, Poland; also Kozlevshchina,
Belarus; Kozlovshchina, Belarus; & Kozlovshchina, Belarus.
Thank you,

Re: Further Mexican Border Crossings Tidbits #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

One of the things I forgot to mention in my last posting regarding the
Mexican Border Crossings database on the popular subscription site is that
many times, Jews did not have the designation of HEBREW in the entries.
They often put their nationality of the country they lived in.

An example of this, apart >from LITHUANIA, which I have mentioned previously,
are the following brief examples by country.

The Jews of IRELAND have several entries such as

Mrs. Anna Cohen Schiller who was accompanied by her husband Victor Schiller
in 1941.

Harry Labovitz who was born in Faltican (?), Rumania. His wife was Pearl.

When you plug in UKRAINE, one of the entries is for a Stefan Zuk, >from
Stryi-Staniskowiw, Poland, who was in the shoe business. He first came to
America in 1949.

In regard to RUSSIA entries, there are 8,831 listed, many of whom are
Jewish. They run >from Jacobo Abramovitz and his wife Eva to Elisas
Zulanowski and his wife Frieda who are >from Minsk.

An interesting RUSSIA entry is for a Barney Joel Adler, born January 20,
1917 in Paterson, NJ, who is listed as Russian. He was a theater manager
and his alias was Bernardo Anna. His father was Jack Adler who lived in
Paterson, NJ.

In regard to ROUMANIAN entries there are 373, of which many are Jewish.

An example >from 1924 is Moise Cozak who is listed as being >from Chitid
Hunedoara, Roumania, and travelling to Flint, Michigan.

In 1936, there is an Izidor Gaucz-rosenbaum listed which is actually Isidor
Gancz-Rosenbaum >from Raghin, Roumania, whose brother is Jose Gancz. He has
an entries in 1947 and 1950 under Josif Gancz Rosenbaum, born Regeia,
Roumania. There is also a listing in 1949 for a Manuel Ganez Rosenbaum >from
Reghin, Roumania. Reghin is the correct spelling. These appear to be
brothers and the Rosenbaum, in Spanish fashion, is their mother's maiden
name.

One entry for 1946 is Harold Norman Segall who was born in Jassy (Iasi) and
his wife Dorothy.

When you search for GERMANY, you will find an enormous amount of entries,
29,298 entries, in fact, many of which are Jews.

An example is David Cohen in 1921 who is >from Bodenfelde, German. And then
in 1946, there is Francis Cohn-Cohn, >from Berlin, whose maiden name was also
Cohen. Her sister Ella Cohn De Ness and her niece Ana Bernands are also
mentioned.

Another interesting example in 1928 is Maximo Cohnheim, born in Halberstadt,
Germany, accompanied by his wife Gerda, he last resided in Buenos Aires,
Argentina, entering the U.S. at Laredo, Texas, and headed for Germany via
New York with $590 on him.

So, when searching this valuable database, you should not only search by the
criteria of HEBREW, but also for the particular country your family may have
been >from in order to find the appropriate entries for them.

This is particularly true for names which are misspelled as the listing will
give you all of names >from a particular area and will cut down on the amount
of searching you will have to do.

GOLDSTEIN from Chicago/Bohemia #general

Linda Berkowitz <e-berkowitz@...>
 

I am searching for information on Jacob GOLDSTEIN born circa 1835 in Bohemia. He
married a Julia WEISS and they had at least one child, my great grandfather, Joseph
GOLDSTEIN. Perhaps they had other children, but I have never been able to discover
if that is so. According to his death certificate, Joseph GOLDSTEIN was born 11
June 1864 in Bechovice, Bohemia. He died in 1925 in Chicago. He immigrated to the
US about 1885, though I have not been able to find a ship manifest with information
about his immigration. In Chicago, he owned the Reliance Candy company, a company
that he bought >from Sam Indlander, his brother-in-law's brother-in-law.

Any information on the GOLDSTEIN family or the village where he is >from
would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Everyone,
I was wondering if anyone is in contact with people in the Kassa Jewish
Community. I am looking for people who may be in contact with the KOLLAR

There were two brothers Alexander and Jeno Kollar who survived the Shoah.
Alexander passed away in Kosice in 1991 with no children, and I am trying to
locate the family of his brother Jeno Kollar.

Please contact me if you have any information or can advise me on how to
find them.

I appreciate your help.

Dr Nathan Adler officiating at marriages #general

cecilia <myths@...>
 

Dr Nathan Adler, Chief Rabbi, officiated at the marriages of three children of
Lewis PHILLIPS, at the New Synagogue on 23 May 1867, at 1 Bentinck Street on 18
October 1876, at Lewis's house in Marylebone on 1 August 1877.

How usual would it have been for the Chief Rabbi to officiated at marriages?

Is there likely to have been correspondence between Lewis Phillips and Dr Adler, at
least to make arrangements? Are there any repositories for Dr Nathan Adler's
papers?

Having just purchased a detailed road map of Ukraine ,it was the first time I had a

our family tree.

I only found one town with the name similiar to Breznice which is supposedly
where one of my forefathers live. The town is in the road between Rivne and
Stolin on the other side of the border with Belarus. Does anyone know where
I could find details of Jewish life in this town during the 17-18th centuries?

Thank you and shabbat shalom
