New Ozorkow PSA Project Ready #poland

rieke nash <rieken@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I am happy to announce that 1,639 new indices to non-microfilmed Jewish
vital records of OZORKOW are pending addition to the JRI-Poland
database. Some 19th century and first two years of the 20th century
Jewish vital records of this town have been indexed by the JRI-Poland
team in Warsaw as part of the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives (PSA)
Project.

Ozorkow is located 20 miles / 32 kilometers NW of Lodz.

Some of the towns located close to Ozorkow are:
Lodz, Aleksandrow Lodzki, Piatek, Zgierz, Leczycz, Kutno, Strykow.

o Summary of New Indices to Ozorkow Records

The types and years of records are as follows:
Marriages: 1844-55, 1888-1889
Deaths: 1887-90, 1897-1902

o Surnames Found in the New Indices

Surnames found in the Ozorkow indices, can be viewed on
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/ozorkow_surn.htm>

o The Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives Project

Indexes to non-microfilmed 19th century Ozorkow Jewish records housed in
the Lodz Archives are being indexed for addition to the JRI-Poland
database under an agreement between JRI-Poland and the Polish State
Archives (PSA). For information about the PSA project see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm

This new material will finally allow you to expand your research into a
time period or geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your
reach. Once these indexes are available, you may simply print out an
order form >from the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order
the records >from the Polish State Archives.

The budget for indexing the Ozorkow records is $US210. Whatever you can
contribute will be very much appreciated and will help bring us closer
to our goal.

All individuals (or families) who are able to contribute $36 or more to
this effort are qualified to receive the complete database as an Excel
file for your personal research.

Not only will this enable you to see the information well in advance of
its general availability in the JRI-Poland Searchable Database, it will
enable you to look at all the records >from Ozorkow at once, and perhaps
find a family name whose connection you had forgotten, or to work with
the data (for example, sorting by first name) to search for a
great-grandmother's elusive maiden name.

Please join in making a contribution to this extremely worthwhile and
exciting project. Your contribution towards the indexing of records for
Ozorkow can bring to light information you may have never imagined you
would find.

Your contributions in US Dollars may be mailed to:

Cowans in England and Wales in 1901 #poland

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Jim Bennett of Haifa is tracing the COHN families in Krotoszyn/Krotoschin,
Posen Province, >from the 18th and 19th centuries, through their migration
via towns such as
Kowal in the mid-8th century and in about 1810 when they adopted the name
KROTOSZYNSKI and thence to
Wloclawek in the early 19th century and later to America and Britain, where
their name became COWEN and
COWAN.

Yesterday I posted the Cowens and today it is the turn of the COWANS. Here
are the "Male Gender" Cowans of foreign descent living in England and Wales
in 1901, in descending age order. The names are followed by their age, their
place of birth and nationality where relevant, the place where they were
enumerated in the 1901 census and finally their occupation, if it is known.

There appear to be fewer Cowans than Cowens - two letters changed in the
name was obviously not as popular and also fewer Cowan children of the male
sex. Although ofcourse there could be boys born in England, after
immigration, that I have missed.

However here is a surprise. There are a three Cowan girls born in Russia:

Ethel Cowan - 9 - Russia Foreign Subject - Liverpool Liverpool
Sarah Cowan -11 - Russia Foreign Subject -Liverpool Liverpool
Belia Cowan -12 - Russia Foreign Subject - Liverpool Liverpool

and I presume this is their mother:

Annie Cowan - 38 - Russia Foreign Subject - Liverpool Liverpool and she is
probably married to either Israel or Harris below.

Amongst the listed male "Cowans of foreign descent", I have included Lewis,
because of his first name which is commonly associated with Jewish boys in
England.

John Cowan - 52 - Not known - Newcastle, Elswick - Master tailor
Israel Cowan - 49 - Poland, Russian Subject -Lancashire Liverpool -Tailors
{asst}?
Joseph Cowan - 46 - Germany, British Subject - Middlesex
Willesden -Commercial Traveller Machinery Paper
Spencer Cowan - 44 - America, American Subject - London St George
Bloomsbury - Art Adviser
Lewis Cowan - 40 - Surrey Barras - London St Marylebone - Sugar merchant
Harris Cowan 39 - Russia, Foreign Subject -Liverpool Liverpool -picture
framer
Mark Cowan - 32 - Not known Rumania? Eng C not S? - London Fulham - Tailor
Hyman Cowan - 24 - ? -Yorkshire Ecclesall - Tailor and Cutter
Isidore Cowan - 24 - Poland, Russian Subject - Lancashire Liverpool -
Picture Shop Keeper
Abraham Cowan - 20 -Poland, Russian subject - Lancashire Liverpool -
travelling draper

NB: I know nothing about these families, I have just carried out this
exercise out of interest for Jewishgen and Jri-pl and "the Cohens of this
world" to whom I belong.

Cemeteries - Vienna and Eisenstadt (Austria) #germany

Chaim Malovicki <chaim.malovicki@...>
 

I am currently involved in entering information for the burial
registration project. I have in my possession a copy of Mr. Wachstein's
marvelous two volume book >from 1912 in which he recorded the tombstone
inscriptions of the old Jewish cemetery in the Seegasse (burials from
about 1500 - 1780). It is the oldest Jewish cemetery in Austria, but it
suffered under the Nazi regime, therefore the information Mr. Wachstein
recorded is irreplaceable. He often includes genealogy and photos.

Mr. Wachstein also did the same for the old Jewish cemetery in
Eisentstadt.

While, bezrat haShem, these records will eventually be online, it will
take some time to do so. In the meantime, if someone has a specific
inquiry, they can email me and I will try to help.

Possible places of origin - Point of interest #germany

Gunther-Steinberg-PV@...
 

Point of interest:
Recently someone contacted me for information because of my last name.
They assumed that I came >from a place >from which my last name was derived.
To be helpful, I checked Shtetl Seeker at JewishGen.org [MOD NOTE:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm]
and got a list of 26 towns in Germany named Steinberg; all over the place,
from Bavaria to Schleswig Holstein. - On Mapquest, I found maps for even
more places, with a detail map for each. I had no idea that there were
that many towns called Steinberg in Germany. - Most instructive.

However, my Steinberg ancestors all lived in Hohenhausen, SW of Hannover.

I only have information on the origin of the name of the Steinberg family
from Mackensen:
records indicate they took the name in 1809 >from one of the hills around
Mackensen. Other Jewish families used names of other hills.

Torchin/Torczyn #ukraine

ms nodrog
 

I am trying locate information about family members who lived in
Torchin/Torczyn. They arrived in the United States in the early
1900's.
The names I am searching for are BAITCH and ROSEN. A remaining BAITCH
cousin insists that the name has always been spelled with an A. The
other name of ROSEN is my grandfather's and his first name was Leizer.
I can not go back further than that. His wife was Ada BAITCH.

I have discovered a connection between ROSEN and GOLDFARB. Someone who
I think may be a relative says that even though their name was
GOLDFARB, it really was CHARNIZA. Has anyone ever heard of any of
these names >from Torchin/Torczyn? I believe Torchin/Torczyn is in the
Volynia Gubernia.
