I can't help Senor Kornmehl with his surname, but I did find a little
information about Kalwaria Zebrzydowska.

Chester G. Cohen's "Shtetl Finder Gazetteer's" entry for this place says that it is southwest of Krakow and east of Vadovitz. It is included in the Yizkor book "Sefer Zikron L'Kehilot Vadovitz, Andrichov, Kalvaria, Mishlenitz, Sucha," published in 1967. Mr. Kornmehl should check Jewishgen's Yizkor book project to see whether any of this book has been translated and put online.

Cohen also says that Ischar Blaugrund, born in Limanov was rabbi in the town and that Yehiel Kalman Sharf and Manahem Manish Natzetovitz were subscribers to the book "Arye Debi Eilai."

The entry for Kalwaria Zebrzydowska in "Where We Once Walked" says that its pre-WWII Jewish population was 486 and that its map coordinates are
49'52/19'41. The shtetl is also mention in several publications, including
Pinkas HaKehilot-Poland, Vol. 3.

My old Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer's entry for Kalwaria Zebrzydowska says
that the shtetl had a population of 1,816, and was located (or is) on a rail junction 18 miles southwest of Krakow. People were engaged in furniture manufacturing. The town was (or is) a pilgimage center and has a monastery.

I suggest that Mr. Kornmehl do a search for the shtetl by typing in its name in the "search this website" box on Jewishgen's main page. This utility may turn up some mention of the shtetl in, say, the URL that pops up about Krakow. He should also try searching for his surname using the same search box. I don't have the impresssion that records for his shtetl are listed in the JRI-Poland (JRI-PL) Project but he should try looking for KORNMEHL there anyway, as he may find records for the name in any listing the Project may have for his shtetl's neighboring places (Sucha, Mischlenitz, Andrichov, Vadovitz), or even in the Project's listing for Krakow.=

Reb Aharon of Lechevitz #rabbinic

yonatan@...
 

Further to my messages of yesterday, and today, Udi Cain was kind
enough to send me excerpts >from the book on the genealogy of the
families of Reb Aharon of Karlin and Asher of Stolin.

What escapes me are the names of the children of Reb Aharon of
Lechevitz, who according to 2 independant family trees, was the
father-in-law of my ancestor's sibling Yosef and the father of
father of Shlomo Chaim of Koidanov.

Does anyone have a more detailed tree of Reb Aharon of LECHEVITZ's
children and there spouses?

Thanks to all and to Udi

Yoni Ben-Ari

p.s. according to information I received, Reb Chaim VOLOZHINER had a
second son who is not mentioned in published trees by the name of
Yosef of Shareshev. One of the few places he is mentioned is in
"Nefesh Hachaim" when he came to his father's funeral and gave a
small Dvar Torah and hesped. Reliable sources mention that the
reason he was expunged >from the Volozhin family trees is that he,
"nebech", became a chosid and a Lechevitz one at that. Is there a
Lechevitz historian out there who can comment on this. I would
think that such a coup would be written about proudly

I know I've asked before but as all my files were recently lost I'll
try again.

My maternal grandfather was a descendant of Rav Dovid of Novarudok's
brother (sons of Moshe of Kletzk). Does anyone have knowledge of
Rav Dovid's siblings? I have been in touch with descendants of Rav
Dovid, who manage a family tree but they have no information of his
siblings.

Re: passenger lists #general

Just thought I'd put out the names I'm researching again:

Simon Sharpe - born Vilnius, Lithuania, 1852, son of Benjamin and Ida, died
5 aug 1932 in Nashua, NH (believe his name was different - work in
progress...)

Zelia Borofsky - his wife, born Lithuania (i think) 1852, died Nashua, NH 24 mar 1923. daughter of Benjamin Borofsky and Sarah Davis

Aaron (Harry) Chiansky - born april 1871 Kovno, Lithuania, died after 1940
probably in NY where he lived with his sister Bessie Levy. was married to
Ida Sharpe, daughter of Simon and Zelia, divorced 1911. His sons changed
their last name to Chauncey. Aaron and Ida's children were:
Harry, Herman, Julius, Albert, Benjamin, Esther and Sylvia

I'm currently waiting for the death certificates for Simon and Zelia and
have contacted the NARA for ships' passenger list records for the above.
Would like to trace them all in Lithuania. Need to find Aaron's roots. mighthave had brother Hyman and sister Bessie living in Boston in 1900.

My husband, Steve Porcaro, is Simon's gggrandson, through Ida & Aaron,
Esther Chansky and Samuel Kriegsman,
Susan Kriegsman and Kenneth Porcaro.

Thank you

Yisrael CHARIF-Ostrog #rabbinic

Further to my posting of yesterday and today regarding the ROSENBAUM
family of Skalat, I came across a note in my files mentioning that
my ancester Yisrael of Ostrog, who was a descendant of the "Smichas
Chachomim" and related by marriage to the Karlin-Stolin chassidic
dynasties may have gone under the family name CHARIF.

I recall the name being a well known rabbinic family. Does anyone
have a listing for a Yisrael CHARIF of Ostrog? Did this family name
change to SHARF and any other similiar variants over the years?

I tried CHARIF in the JGFF -any place-and got 850 hits many if not
most were listed as SHARFs.

Thanks

Schedule of Revision Lists #lithuania

K. & L. Bertelsen <layakbtl@...>
 

Following Judy Baston's reply to my query, I checked the very informative
article by Boris Feldblyum published in Avotaynu Volume XIV, No3 - Fall
1998.

One very interesting fact hit me between the eyes! I thought that,
as I hadn't thought about this, perhaps not all researchers would be aware
that, as Feldblyum notes, the first four revisions are essentially irrelevant to Jewish genealogists, because few Jews lived* in Russia until the partitions of Poland in 1772, 1793 and 1795.

He also mentions that the fourth revision, stated in 1781, showed 1,816 Jews in the entire empire, some of them in central and southern Ukraine, where Jews were allowed to settle after 1769. A fifth revision was conducted between 1794 and 1796, the results showing that as a result of its annexations, the Czarist Empire had acquired 621,000 unwelcome Jewish inhabitants.

* LB note - that is the areas in which Jewish people were living were not
under the control of the Czarist Russian Empire prior to 1772-1795, but
other regimes.

The book VILNA by Israel Cohen, summarises the history of the Jews of Vilna going back to the 14th century - at various times under both the Duchy of Lithuania and various Polish kings etc. Presumably any existing records which might exist prior to the partitions of Poland would have to be researched via archives in Poland and/or Galicia (under the
Austro-Hungarian empire and now Ukraine) or possibly Prussia/Germany,
should we all live that long and win the lottery!

Thanks everybody for your insights and leads.

Re: Passenger lists - finding shtetl name #belarus

Yes, in my case. For my searches of TALALAY and related families, the
shtetl of Zaverezh'ye and its across-the-only-road neighbor the
agricultural colony of Woratinschtina/Voratinshtina were listed, as well
as other nearby shtetls. All of these were really tiny places in early
20th century, and they were listed. It isn't so hard to locate the
correct column on the manifest and just look down the page for something
that looks like the place you want. I've done this frequently, looking
for Mogilev/Mohilew and other spellings, as well as the shtetls in the
area.
Sometimes a surprise or two or several more turn up!

I'll relate a story about this. Years ago I had ordered and received
copies of manifest pages of one of our TALALAY relatives, with the man's
name marked. I never glanced at the rest of the page. Only a few years
ago, I was looking at the page again and down towards the bottom was
another listing for the shtetl and another person whom I knew was a
relative with a different family name.
Often, people and relatives >from one place traveled together, but they
may have gone through the lines at different times, gotten separated
somehow as the manfiest was being written. So they are not grouped
directly under each other. It always pays to check the rest of the
manifest, if you have the time and the ability to keep sitting!

John Kerry's Jewish Roots #germany

LLevine2@...
 

The Boston Globe wrote a front page story on Sunday about the surprising
Jewish roots of Senator John KERRY. It seems that KERRY's grandfather was
Fritz KOHN >from a small town in the Czech Republic that once was part of the
Austrian empire.

Are any of our members researching this family?

If anyone is interested in the entire article see The Boston Globe Sunday,
February 2, 2003.

KOHN changed his name in 1902 to Frederick KERRY when he emigrated to the
US. The Globe reports that a birth register for Frederick/Fritz KOHN in the
village of Bennisch showed Benedikt KOHN, master brewer and his wife
Mathilde, daughter of Jakob FRANKEL, royal dealer in Oberlogau in Prussia.

The record does not mention a baptism. But the family says that Frederick
KERRY was a Catholic and is buried in a Catholic cemetery in Brookline. The
birth register was listed in the church records, on an addendum page listing
Jewish families.

KERRY admitted that he knew about his Jewish roots although he said he was
blown away by learning the details. People in this neck of the woods make a
big deal about KERRY's maternal ties to the FORBES and WINTHROPS, Boston
Brahmin families. Because of the large number of Irish Americans in Boston
many people here assumed that KERRY is part Irish. It will be interesting to
see how this new revelation will affect KERRY'S political career.
