Katino/Katina/Katinas family in Lithuania + Linkuva/Laukuva #lithuania

Ried Nathalie <nathalieried@...>
 

I'm researching traces of any Katino/Katina family in Lithuania. I have
found the names of Shoah victims named KATINAS >from Laukuva/linkuva;
Lithuania.Here are my questions :

Could someone confirm that Laukuva and Linkuva is really the same town?

I know that often Lithuanian surnames have a local suffix in "as" or"is"
added : is it certain that KATINAS and KATINA are two versions of a same
name? Besides, in my family papers (in French) the name is "KATINO" but
I think Katina is a variation of the same since "a" was often pronounced
"o" in the Ashkenazic pronunciation. Please let me know if I am
mistaken.

Last, I haven't been able to find the given name Motiejus in the Given
Names Database. does anyone know about this name? I understand Orelis is
a version of Aharon, can you confirm this?

Thanks a lot for your help

Macurer Forest #poland

Avigdor&Laia <lbendov@...>
 

It seems that Forests where partisans and Jews hid were named after close-by
towns. The suffix -er was added to the town name to form an adjective,
such as Macurer Forest, Bransker for the Bransk forest, Bialystoker, for
someone >from there, etc. I am therefore searching for Macur between Tykocin
and Ciechanowiec , but I don't think there is such a Polish town.
If pronounced in Polish, maybe Mazury is meant? I don't have a copy of
WOWW, so I haven't been able to look there to see if there is such a town
in the area I'm searching.

The closest other sites similar in sound which I found are Makowo and Mokre,
but both seem wide of the mark. I tried Shtetl searches and Zachor without
success and pored over Polish maps online and off for many hours . Any
hints?

Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,

Hungary SIG #Hungary Jewish genealogy awards - "Four Questions" and some reminders #hungary

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

It's the time of year when thoughts turn to Passover -- and to the
awards our community bestows for achievements in Jewish genealogy.
So I pose these "Four Questions" to all of you:

1) What coveted award have Warren Blatt, Stanley Diamond, Susan
King, and Miriam Weiner all received?

2) For what achievement have Yad Vashem, Alexander Beider,
Stephen Morse, and the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project been
recognized?

3) Why and when have kudoes gone to David Fox and to the JGSs of
Los Angeles, Montreal, and Ottawa.

4) The JGSs of Greater Philadelphia, New York, Palm Beach County,
and Los Angeles have been honored for excellence in what area?

For answers, see the lists of distinquished winners of IAJGS's
past Achievement Awards at www.iajgs.org/awards_files/awards.html

Since 1998, the Jewish genealogy community has acknowledged
important contributions by individuals and groups with IAJGS
Achievement Awards, presented annually by the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Thank you to all
who have already submitted nominations for the 2006 awards. For
those who haven't completed their nominations yet, here are some
reminders:

o Awards are given in four categories:

Lifetime Achievement Award

Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the
Internet, Print or Electronic Product

Outstanding Programming or Project that Advances the
Objectives of Jewish Genealogy

Outstanding Publication by a Member Organization of IAJGS

o The Call for Nominations appears at
www.iajgs.org/awards_files/awardnomincall.html
Please be sure to click on each award category for criteria
for that award.

o Although nominations must come to the Awards Committee >from
an IAJGS member organization (www.iajgs.org/Member-Index.htm),
we encourage JewishGenners to be part of the process. Please
look at the lists of past recipients and ask yourself a fifth
question: "Who else belongs here?" If you have benefited >from
a wonderful project, internet resource, publication, or
programming that isn't listed, let your JGS know and propose a
nomination -- this year if you and they can hurry, or for 2007.

o Societies are welcomed -- in fact, urged -- to nominate their
own publications, projects, and projects. Don't be shy!

Hi all,

I'd like to know if there's anyone out there researching FRIEDMAN
or GROSZ family lines in the Varanno/Vranov, Galszecs/Secovce,
Hanisfalu/Hanusovce region of what's now eastern Slovakia.

I'll be shortly having a very large & detailed professional
genealogical report sent to me about these extended families. I'm
trying to trace the lines further back in time, back into the
1700s. They may have entered Hungary >from Galicia, but I'm not sure.

I'd be happy to provide or exchange info with others research these
or other family lines.

Thanks!

Re: Friedman/Grosz family of Vranov nad Toplou #hungary

Eric,

This is a flyer although the towns are quite close. My gggm was Rachel
FRIEDMAN, born c1814 in Circ, Slovakia (northwest of Hanusovce and very
close to the Polish border). She was married to my gggf, Moses Hirsch
HUEBSCHMAN, born 1807 in Hanusovce nad Toplou. I have an extensive tree
from the Huebschman line but I've found it very difficult to get back
into the 1700s, except through patronymics, i.e., the father of Moses
was Hirsch. I have 1869 census records for all of the Jews of Circ and
there are a few other FRIEDMANS, all born there. As you must know,
however, it is particularly difficult to trace the female lines.

If your report turns up any connections, please let me know. There were
no GROSZs in Circ in 1869.
