Seeking information about Solinka #general

Vicki Schulkin <vickischulkin@...>
 

I am interested in learning more about my family in Solinka, a village in
Southeastern Poland, on the Slovak border, that was in Austria-Hungary before
WW I. I know quite a bit already - a cousin in Czechoslovakia found references
to the family in Solinka a registry in the Sanok archives >from about 1931.
One small branch is represented by pages of testimony in Yad Vashem. My
great-grandfather was listed in the Polish Business Directory for 1929, and
his death was noted in 1938.

This was a lot more than I ever expected to find, and I'm looking for advice
on where else I might look, either within JewishGen databases, or elsewhere.
I'm particularly interested in where I might find earlier records. I'd also
be interested in finding general information about the the village - such as
what the Jewish population was at various times, and the population as a
whole, and what businesses there might have been.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Vicki Schulkin

THE RADAUTZ JEWISH VITAL RECORDS DATABASE 1857-1929 COMPLETED! #romania

Edgar Hauster <bconcept@...>
 

Dear friends,

It took us - almost to the day - three years to complete "The Radautz Vital
Records Database 1857-1929" but now it's done! Birth records form the
centerpiece of any vital records database. They usually show the name of the
child, gender, date and place of birth as well as additional parental details
including their places of birth, ages, etc. As part THREE of our now completed
project, The Radautz Birth Records Database contains over 12,000 properly
indexed birth records for the period 1857-1929:

http://czernowitz.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-radautz-vital-records-index.html

- Births (12,000+ records): https://bit.ly/2Z0jbfP (NEW)
- Marriages (3,000+ records): https://bit.ly/33tRAai
- Deaths (7,500+ records): https://bit.ly/2KpmHfx

Copies of family birth records are freely available upon request. To request a
digital image of the original record, please click on the "Request Record"
link in the results page, which generates an email request to us for the
record of interest.

These vital records are a cornerstone of family history research because they
were typically created at or near the time of the event, making the record
more likely to be accurate. We wish you success in your research! 'We' stands
for Martina Hauster, who took care of the transcription, Bruce Reisch, who
developed the search engines and websites, assisted by Lucas Reisch, who
provided database development expertise, and me, Edgar Hauster, who
photographed thousands of pages of records at the archives and will process
your digital image requests.

Please check it out and let us have your comments!

Hello,

I am searching for a man named Eric ROSENBERG. He was the son of Nik
and Sylvia ROSENBERG (nee Fletcher) and originated in South Africa
(Bloemfontain I believe). I have previously corresponded with Sylvia,
but that was a few years ago and we lost touch.
Nik ROSENBERG was born in Sombor and he was a cousin of my
great-grandmother. I would be very happy to reach an email address for
Eric and talk to him.

Thank you in advance,

KRANZHOF, KRANZOV #ukraine

kranser@...
 

My grandfather, Yicheel KRANZOV arrived at Ellis Island in 1906 >from Odessa.
He was met at Ellis Island by a brother, Moische. I am unable to locate
Moische other than in the records below. I wonder if this is the Moische who
met my grandfather.

JewishGen show that a Moische Kranzhof, born about 1867, arrived on the
Kroonland on July 25, 1903, going to meet a brother-in-law S. Greenberg.

My great-great grandfather, Leib KRANZOV was born 1848 possibly in Daschev.
His father's name was Leizor. Daschev research shows a Kravtsov which is
close enough as these things go. He also shows two 4 year-olds named Leizor
in the 1795 census who could be my great-great-great grandfather if he
fathered Leib when he was 57 (which would have been an achievement.)

Any information on these persons would be appreciated.

My ancestor's Jewish name #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

A researcher >from another site has just emailed me in confusion about
the name of one of my ancestors, whom different researchers have at
various times called Aaron GIMBEL and Jacob GIMBEL,.

Looking at the Napoleonic name-adoption register for Biedesheim bei
Goellheim, where he was born, I was able to sort out the confusion
up to a point.

His Hebrew name was in fact Gimbel ben Aaron., and because he had a married
son, Aaron (ben) Gimbel, with a wife and several children (one of whom
is listed as David GIMBEL, born 20 December 1792) , the grandfather had
to step aside and accept the new family surname. So he called himself
Jaques GIMBEL, and then became Jacob GIMBEL when Biedesheim was ceded
to Prussia.

Further, according to the same list, Aaron GIMBEL called himself Adam
GIMBEL after 1808.

According to my inherited family tree, David GIMBEL was the father of my
great-grandmother Amalia NEY geb.. GIMBEL, something I've never doubted.

Handed down in the family is what I imagine was the only letter David
ever sent to his daughter, written not by him but by a scribe. It is
signed both in German - D Gimbel and in Hebrew/Yiddish. The latter
looks to me like a very wobbly "David Sichel" - I can read Hebrew
script. Can someone who knows more about traditional naming usage
explain, please? Does it mean he was a Levite?
