you say BRESKIN, i say PRUSHKIN..... #poland

I may be making some progress here:

My great-grandmother Rachel (nee Prushkin) Meyerowitz came >from
Brestovitsa, south of Grodno and just east of Krynki.

I've found a couple of paths worth pursuing immediately.

1) I've found a fellow genner whose ggm was a Prushkin >from Amdur nearby
and whose father was also Yehuda Prushkin! Hopefully I have a cousin
there but time will tell.

2) At Ellis Island, I found a 1921 arrival for Kajla (age 40) BREZKIN
and her son Zejdel (11) >from Wielke Brestowice (same town!!). Kajla
listed a brother Abram RUBIN back in Brestovitsa and was going to her
husband Abraham (address in NY crossed out, penciled in address in
Paterson, NJ).

In the 1930 census, I found an Abraham BRESKIN (age 60) with wife Katie
(age 56, immigration date 1921) and son Samuel (21) living on Bide(?)
Street in the Bronx. In 1934, a Samuel BRESKIN married a Sue SHAPSS
on 6/9/1934 in Brooklyn. A Samuel BRESKIN died 1/16/1995 in Jamaica,
Queens. I have not yet found a death certificate for Abraham BRESKIN
or tracked down any descendents.

3) Many other BRESKIN come >from Slonim, but I have no known connections
there.

So, progress is being made in my search for descendents of Yehuda and
Rose (nee FARS) Prushkin >from Brestovitsa.

If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Seligman family #poland

Looking for information regarding the Seligman family
from "Bialostock, Russia" (I'm assuming AKA
Bialystock) and/or "Bieski, Russia" (possibly
Bielsk-Podlaski).

Julius/Jules, Rebecca and their young son Herman Hyman
(b. 1890) immigrated to the U.S. ca 1894. They lived
in New York City before moving to Boston, Mass. Other
children include:

Harry Garrett Seligman 1894–1959
Samuel Walter Seligman 1899–1987
Rose Seligman 1904–
Gertrude Seligman 1906–
Frances Seligman 1908

Any information regarding the origin of this family
would be most appreciated.

Thank you,

I have found an ancestor on a passenger manifest. It states nationality

Would anyone be able to help me understand where this is?

GETZ from Kolo, Poland. Seeking Gravestone in Stockton on Tees and/or Middlesbrough #unitedkingdom

kirsten.gradel@...
 

I could use some brainstorming and advice how to find a gravestone in Stockton on Tees - if there is a Jewish gravesite - else I think the nearest would be in Middlesborough.

I am researching my husband's maternal PRASZNYCER family in Russian Poland (variant spellings). The name is found in several towns in Poland >from 1826-1902 and, apart >from the earliest ones 1826-46 in Ciechanow near Przasnysz, they are all family entries: 1859-68 Zakroczym, 1869 Warszawa, 1875-1902 Plock, 1870 Kolo, 1884 Kalisz.
The name seems unigue so I suspect the early Ciechanow entries belong to the family but have no proof.

First confirmed generation is schechter Abraham PRASZNYCER and Ryfka nëe FOGEL. They lived during the 1830-40ies in a small community Wladyslawow=Russocice abt. 16 km SW of Kolo in Kalisz Gubernia. The nearest registry town was Turek but only vital records >from 1837 survived in Turek.

Abraham and Ryfka had four sons: David (abt. 1831-1902), Wolf (abt.
1835- 1914), Mordko/Mark (1837-1914), Isaiah/Szaja (abt. 1842-1908).
Apart >from Wolf they all came to UK. Mordko in 1855, Isaiah a few years later, both adopting the surname ABRAHAMS. David with two sons came abt. 1885 and kept the family name allthough anglizising it to PRASHNER. They were all glass merchants, glasscutters and/or picture framers.

>from the end of the 1890ies Wolf's offspring >from Plock started coming, incl. my late mother-in-law.

Of course I have wondered whether Abraham and Ryfka had only sons but considered it hopeless pursuing daughters, knowing there are no Turek records. No living family members ever heard about relatives in Middlesbrough or Stockton on Tees.

However, during the last 3-4 months I have worked on the LDS films >from Kolo, updating the database with parents, maiden names, ages etc, to go online on JRI-Poland later. During the work I found some very promising entries:
Moszek GETZ and Hagar née PRASNICER/PRASNIER/PRASNIC. The couple lived in Kolo 1854-64, Hagier's noted ages giving a birth year 1832.
No other surnames in Kolo resembles Hagar's except one PRASZNYCER >from a 1870 marriage which belongs to David's son Samuel who married a Kolo girl.

Moszek and Hagar GETZ had five children: Hana 1854, Marya 1857-59, Trana 1859, Abram 1860-64, Rojza 1864.

After 1864 no trace of them but then I tried a long shot: If Hagier was family she had by then two brothers in UK who were doing well, so maybe ....

FreeBMD: Hagar GETZ, died in Stockton on Tees 10th of March 1895 aged 62.
Moritz GETZ ,died tin Stockton on Tees fourth of September
1898 aged 66, Glass merchant!

1871 UK Census: Morris and Hagar GETZ with three daughters Hannah,
Rose, Trese!
1881 UK Census: Morris, GETZ, Glass merchant , wife Haga, daughters
Rose and Threase, 75 Linthorpe Rd. Middlesbrough. All >from Kolo
Poland!
1891 UK Census: Morris, Hagar, Teresa, Rose GETZ,. 20 Donecal?
Str., Stockton on Tees, 2

Teresa aged 27 married 1884 in Middlesbrough to a widower Julius MORRIS,
Rose aged 27 married 1898 in Middlesbrough to Max NOAH, son of
minister Joseph Jakob NOAH in Middlesborough.

It is obvious they are the Kolo GETZ family but how to prove Hagar was a sister of the four PRASZNYCER boys? A gravestone with father's name would help. Abraham is of course rather common and would not be conclusive but if her father was not Abraham I would at least know it was a wrong track. Any other ideas? Any descendants out there?

Miriam Margolyes asked in her "Karlwary, Suwalk, Russia" message if any Genner has
"an idea as to the current name & location of Karlwary?... I know Suwalki is in
Poland now, but Karlwary?"

Miriam's "Karlwary" is probably Kalvarija, Kalwarja, Kalvariya, Kalvarijos,
coordinates 54°24' 23°14', presently in Lithuania, 85.7 miles WSW of Vilnius,
according to ShtetlSeeker.

Kalwaria (one of its variant names) is about 6 miles >from the present Lithuania-
Poland border, by the Sheshupe river, on the Suwalki - Marijampole (Mariampol)
road, with Suwalki, Poland, 24 miles SSW, and Marijampole (Lithuania) 12 miles
NNE.

ShtetlSeeker gives a link to a JewishGen Locality Page for Kalvarija,
Lithuania, http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~shtetm~-2615230
which includes alternate names: Kalvarija [Lith], Kalvarye [Yid], Kalwaria [Pol],
Kalvariya [Rus], Kalvarien [Ger], Calvaria, Kalvaria, Kalwariya, Kalwarya, and
relevant links for Kalwaria research.

The Locality Page specifies that before WWI (c. 1900) it was part of the Kalwarya
district, Suwalki Province, Russian Empire, and between the wars (c. 1930) in the
Marijampole district, then Lithuania.

Additions to JOWBR #usa

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of over
187,000 records and over 10,000 tombstone images to the
JEWISHGEN ONLINE WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY (JOWBR).
The database now contains over 800,000 records in
1,810 cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots.

Additions were made to the records of the following countries:
Belarus, Canada, Egypt, England, Germany, Hungary, India,
Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands Antilles, Poland, Romania,
Slovakia, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, and United States.

Significant contributions were made by the following persons
and organizations. While all contributors are acknowledged
and appreciated, we are pointing out the following for their
extraordinary efforts.

- Carolynne Veffer (JGS Toronto) -
13 Toronto cemeteries (8,000 records)
- Bruno Segal - Botosani, Romania (~13,200 records).
- Terry Lasky - 11 Colorado cemeteries (~17,700)
- Susan Melnick (Rauh Jewish Archives) -
9 Pennslyvania cemeteries (>5,300 records)
- Rabbi Ed Cohen - 185 Connecticut, 31 western Massachusetts
and 8 Rhode Island cemeteries (~90,000 records)
- Gilda Kurtzman -
Significant additions and revisions of Israeli cemeteries

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without
the efforts of Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator;
Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, JewishGen's amazing technical team;
and the encouragement of Susan King, JewishGen's founder and
Managing Director. We also want to thank the team of volunteer
translators that worked on 16 cemeteries. Finally, without the
donations of photographs and burial records by hundreds of
individuals and organizations, this project would not be possible.
Our thanks and appreciation to all.

The JOWBR database is searchable at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery >.

Please contact me or Nolan Altman, < nta@pipeline.com >,
about the donation of additional material to JOWBR.
