FRIED / FELLNER #poland

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

Before I saw the Budanow Excel file >from JRI-Poland a few hours ago,
I knew of two brothers and a sister in the US, children of Szama Pikholz
and Minnie/Miriam Fried, born in Budanow in the 1890's. One brother lived
in Erie PA and the other two - and Minnie - lived in Newark NJ. I have not
located any descendants, though there were/are at least two.

Minnie's parents were Majer FRIED and Pescha FELLNER.

The Budanow Excel file had the births for these three children and seven
others, with deaths for two of the seven. The death index ends well before
the birth index, so some of the other five may have died in childhood - but
maybe not, which is why I am writing.

I have no knowledge of the other children as Pikholz. Perhaps they went by
FRIED, but the FRIED family itself was not >from Budanow and Fried is a very
common name. It is the FELLNERs who are >from Budanow.

So if there is anyone out there with a FRIED-FELLNER family, I'd like to hear
from you. Maybe you know something I need. The Budanow Fellners in JGFF do
not have any information for me.

(The Budanow Excel file has nothing definitive and only one small clue regarding
the ancestry of Szama Pikholz.)

1. 10,200 Burial Societies In The New York Metro Area, a database
which is searchable by town name or keyword. I searched this
database for Tykocin burial societies, went to Old Montefiore and
walked the plot. Found an interesting name (same as my great
great grandfather) and was able to find an entire branch of my
family living in Long Island, Florida, and Israel.

2. New York Landsmanshaftn and Other Jewish Organizations, a
database of lists of Landmanschaften >from various sources. Check
out American Jewish Year Book 1907-1908, New York City
Congregations and Works Progress Administration (WPA) Yiddish
Writer's Group Study (1938) for "Congregation Mogen David Anshei
Choroszcz." Maybe these references can give you some direction.

I have heard that the State Insurance department may have
information about organizations like burial societies that become
defunct.

Naturalization requests to Varick Street -- quality and cost #general

Money-saving tip:

Italian Genealogy Group website (www.italiangen.org), where many of us are
using the Southern District naturalization index, says to send NARA $10 per
name when requesting copies of naturalization records. In fact, NARA policy
is to copy up to three person's records for $10 (maximum 20 pages total).

More on Litvak programs at the Jerusalem2004 Conference #lithuania

First, please let me apologize for a slip of the key when I
wrote yesterday:

<< Litvaks will have a full and rich day of networking and
information on Thursday, July 9 at the Jerusalem2004 IAJGS
conference. >>

There is no such day as Thursday, July 9. The bulk of the
Litvak events are on Thursday, July 8. But not all...

Prof. Dov Levin alerted me that his presentation Wednesday, July 7
on "Jewish Surnames in the Baltic Countries" will include "a big part of
information on our Litvaks." He will be glad to answer questions about
his lecture. Prof. Levin's lecture will be in Hebrew, with a simultaneous
translation into English. It is part of the track on onomastics, and is
therefore scheduled separately >from the presentations on Baltic research.
