Search for SUKOFF family members #general

Bud484BG@...
 

I am searching for any descendants of Leon and Anna SUKOFF family.

Here is the information that I have:

On the ship manifest, Brother-in-law, Leon TUKOW at 876-40th St Brooklyn NY
was named as the person to whom my family member Zundel KAHAN was going.
The 1930 U.S. Census shows a Leon SUEKOFF (barber) at the 40th St address in
Brooklyn. His wife, Anna, and three sons, Isadore, Sal(?) and Jacob. Zundel
KAHAN is not shown at the address.

Correspondence in 1928 >from Zundel gives his address as 876 - 40th Street,
Brooklyn.

I am looking for possible information about Zundel KAHAN's wife and two
children through his wife's family. Zundel Kahan emigrated to the USA in
1926 >from Vilnia, Poland. His wife, Rosa and children, Isaac (Itzak) and
Sara were detained in Havana, Cuba, abt 1931. Itzak did come to the USA,
I have no date of entry >from Cuba. Rosa died in Havana during her detention
there. Don't know what happened to Sara.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone with any knowledge of this SUKOFF family.

Osiek Project at the Sandomierz Archives - Osiek Vital Records have been indexed! #general

Orit Lavi <orit@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland project is happy to announce that the
indices to all the Jewish vital records of Osiek have been indexed by the
JRI-Poland team in Warsaw as part of the Sandomierz Polish State Archives
(PSA) Project. There are no LDS films for this town, so this project covers
all available records >from Osiek. Registration in Osiek started only in
1888, and prior to that, Osiek Jews were registered in nearby towns,
primarily Staszow.

Osiek is located at latitude 50 31', longitude 21 27', 13 miles (20 km) E
of Staszow, 9 miles (15 km) NE of Polaniec, 11 miles (18 km )
south of Klimontow, in the Sandomierz area, Radom gubernia.

Jews first settled in Osiek in the early years of the 19th century. In 1857
the number of Jews in Osiek totalled 154, and it grew to 539 in
1921. In October 1942 Osiek's ghetto was liquidized and the Jews were sent
to Treblinka.

If you have relatives coming >from Osiek or >from the neighbouring towns such
as Staszow, Koprzywnica, Klimontow, Bogoria and Polaniec
('Plontch'), this is an exceptional opportunity to find out more on your
family.

*Summary of Osiek records being indexed*

There are about 500 records being indexed as part of this project, covering
14 years between 1888 and 1902, as follows:

Birth - 309, Grooms: 72, Brides: 72, Deaths: 114.

*Surnames found in the new indices*

These are the most common surnames found in the Osiek indices:

GROSCHAUZ
RAICHMAN
GOLDCHAR
ZILBERBERG
RAJFER
CITRYN CYTRIN
SZTERKMAN SZTRAKMAN
ROZNER
KLAJNER KLAINER
BRAUM
SZWARCCHAR SZWARCCHAUR
ERLICH
CINAMON CYNAMON
CHOFMAN OFMAN
BARANEK

A list of all surnames appearing in the Osiek indices is now online at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/osiek_surn.htm

If you would like to know the number of times any surname appears in the new
indices or more about the Osiek project, please contact me at:
orit@...

Many other towns in the Sandomierz area are part of this project. If you
are interested in any other town in the Sandomierz area, please contact

I am looking for information about DP camps in or around Munich. I am trying

Smorgon, Kobrin, Svenciany Research #belarus

Mindie Kaplan <rayvenna@...>
 

I guess the logical follow-up question is how do we get a research project
started for our shetel(s)? I keep getting referred back to LitvakSIG which in
turn bounces me back to Belarus SIG. I know the older records are in
Lithuania, but LitvakSIG is no longer dealing with those areas (at all for ANY
time period) since the towns are now in Belarus.

So-- where do I go >from here? It doesn't make sense to me to pay for
individual research when I can donate to a SIG and have the information
available for everyone. (I'm mostly interested in Smorgon, Kobrin, Svenciany,
and the surounding areas-- anyone know where Sinack/Simack is?)

Help!

Grodno Area Landowners in 1890 #belarus

I have received an unconfirmed report that Family History Library (FHL)
Film no 2212494 has a list of landowners in 1890 >from Grodno area. I hope
that there is a SIG member with Russian language skills that can review this
film and report back to this discussion group what they find. This might be
something that the Grodno Researchers might want to translate and add to the
All Belarus Data. This was done with the Minsk homeowners lists for 1889
and 1911 <http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/MinskHomeowners.htm>.

Info on Gomel? #belarus

HocaChynik@...
 

I'm new to geneology and can use some guidance. My grandparents came to the US
around 1907 >from Gomel and landed in Galveston Texas. Where can I find information
about Gomel and about the Jews who landed in Galveston? Is Gomel considered to be a
shtetl? Can I find my grandparents names on any ship manifest or other records when
I dont know what ship they took here or where their point of departure was? Any other
help would be appreciated. Thanks.
