Yefim,

If a record had notes that were not transalted, will the translation
indicate that?

Research question re: HENRAJCH and LEWKOWICZ family, Dzialoszyn, Poland #general

Simone Berk <simoneberk@...>
 

Hello,

I am researching the marriage of Chaja Malka LEWKOWICZ (1857-1938) of
Dzialoszyn, Poland and Salomon Szulim HENRAJC (1850-1928). Together they
had 8 children that I can confirm. The eldest, Michael (born 1881) was
my great-grandfather. However, I have a birth registration record of
Zuse HENRAJCH in 1876, to a Chana LEWKOWICZ (1852-1876) and Salomon
Szulim HENRAJCH. Zuse was documented to be 6 months old and and Chana
is said to be deceased. I can find no record at all of Chana's birth
or their marriage.

Also, after the mention of Zuse, he disappears. I do not find him living
with his father and second wife, or any record of his death.

Does anyone have any recommendation as to how to proceed? It is
potentially useful information in tracing my great-grandfather's journey
to Antwerp.

Is Zuse short for another name? And any ideas of how I can search for Chana?

Thanks,

on family members you may or may not have known. Easy to use, you simply
search by family name and you will see the nature of each claim, e.g. for
property, or furs or securities, and who submitted the claim. The specifics
of the claims are not given but you may request such information at

Dictionary of Askenazic Given Names, the origins,structure,pronunciation

This book give you a lot of answers for the questions that you ask.

SITE CITE - Buried Treasure Alert: Jewish vital-records cards for Koenigsberg #germany

Roger Lustig
 

For those of us researching East Prussia, there is a large trove of
records lurking in the ancestry.com databases.

Specifically, the Jewish vital-records cards for Koenigsberg (now
Kaliningrad, Russia) have been put on line and indexed, BUT...

...they're in a collection called "Germany, Lutheran Baptisms,
Marriages, and Burials, 1519-1969".

These records cover well over a century, ending in 1874.
