I think that Wittlich is the closest town with an archive:

Is Szylem a Polish equivalent of Shlomo? #poland

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

I have a birth certificate for Ester Ruchla Bryfman
that lists Shlomo Leib Bryfman and Eta Sztrajcher as
the parents. There is a marriage record in the JRI
data base for Ela Gorn and Ester Bryfman that lists
her parents as Szylem Lejb and Eta Bryfman. Is Szylem
a Polish form of Shlomo? I have only found the name
Szylem in 3 places on the Web, so it is either very
rare, or spelled much differantly than the translator
who indexed it.

Re: Warsaw, Russia #poland

Zev-Ada Scarson <greenwolfe21@...>
 

Marian,
The best way to seek out the origins of your
progenitor is to cross-reference Federal census
records, death certificates, and naturalization
papers. If Jacob Braun lived at least up until 1900,
the census would reveal whether or not he was
naturalized, and possibly where in Russia he
originated from.
Also, you might want to look into an interment
record. You never know, one of your kin might have
divulged his origins at the time of his death.
A few personal questions:
Did your Jacob Braun live within the tri-state
area? How many children did he have? What was his
spouse's name?
My reason for asking is quite simply that my
progenitor also happens to be a Jacob Braun. He
immigrated to the the United States >from Russia during
the last quarter of the 19th century.
Please let me know if I can be of further
assistance.

Records for an ancestor, Jacob BRAUN, state that he

Re: Book "Bialystok" #poland

Please tell me about the book Bialystok mentioned in this email. My
father was >from Bialystok, but his parents and sister did not come to
America. We don't know for sure, but they must have been lost in the
Holocaust.

My son and I went to Bialystok two years ago, but there was very little
for us to research.

I haven't had any luck so far finding ANY Steins in Bialystok. The lack of
success so far has me thinking that there were few Steins there and so, when
I do find them, they are more likely to be relatives.

In going through "Bialystok", a 1951 book containing 1200 pictures, I may
have found some Stein Bialystokers in the United States. On page 182, Morris
Stein is noted as a leader of "AHAVATH ACHIM", as an officer and/or director
of the Bialystoker Center and as having died in 1943. On page 227, 236 & 237
there are pictures of Mary Stein who was involved in the Ladies Aid Society
and the Home for the Aged.

I hit the jackpot on page 293 in a picture labeled "Four Generations of
Landsleit" are Mrs. Gelman (great grandmother), Samuel Stein (grandfather),
Morris E. Stone (father?? Not labeled), and Sharon Ann Stein (great
grandchild).

Does anyone have information on this family? If the paternal side comes from
Bialystok they may well be relatives.
