Re: "St. Michaels Hungary" #general

No wonder Stephanie Weiner could not find the location of St. Michaels
(Szentmiklos) in Hungary (see her message of Jan. 31, 2001)!

When I looked it up in my 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer, the entry
referred me to the entry for "Chinyadevo." (Now "who woulda thunk it," as
my mother would have responded facetiously.)

The 1962 C-L's entry for Chinyadevo says it was a village located on the
Latoritsa river, on railroad, in the west trans-Carpathian oblast of the
Ukrainian SSR. In 1941 it had a population of 2,850. It is five miles
north east of Mucachevo and has a 16th century castle. The residents did
lumbering and watch manufacturing. The town is sometimes called
"Chinadeyevo", and in Czech "Cinadjevo."

Magnate-on-Duty #galicia

Phillip Minden <Minden@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,


does anyone know where the village of Zelichow (dot on the Z, accent on the o) in
Little Poland (West Galicia), some 40 miles East of Cracow, belonged to? (This is

not Zelechow near Warsaw.)

My ancestor came >from this place in the second half of the 17th century.

I'm looking for the magnate or city that the village belonged to, its German name,
the whereabouts of any sources today, and older cemetaries in the vicinity. I know
that it is difficult to find anything for that period, but Gary Mokotoff's
announcement about magnates' archives gives some hope.

Thanks in advance,

Russian Jewish surnames / question for historians #general

A Tsar Is Born <enchante@...>
 

Dear group,

Jews did not have surnames in 18th century Poland. The partitioning powers
applied their own laws to the Jews subsequently. In Russia, surnames were
rare for anyone but the nobility, the higher bourgeoisie (a small group)
and foreign immigrants before the 19th century. Tsar Alexander I (1801-25)
appears to be the man who decreed that all his subjects take surnames.

Most Jews' surnames were Germanic or Russian. The exceptions are usually
Cohanim or Levites: Cohen, Cohn, Kahn, Levy, Levitt, Levinson, Levine, etc.

But my family, which always regarded itself as of a certain distinction,
has a Hebrew surname, and we took it in the early 19th century. It exists
in many different transliterations in many different branches of the family
(Yohalem, Yaglom, Jaglom, etc.) But it's all the same Hebrew word.

Does anyone know of cases where Jewish families in the Pale (we lived in
Anipolye or Antopol, in Grodno Gobernya, now Belarus) were allowed to
choose their own surname, and to choose one in Hebrew to boot? What might
have been the circumstances of such a thing? Were we just rich, or had we
some sort of community authority? Or did no one in the ruling classes
really care what the Jews did?

I am interested in discussing this with anyone who has read Russian/Jewish
history of this era, who can tell me of similar cases.

Once more:Archive for Repatriazia documents in Warszawa #galicia

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

I am looking for the special archive in Warszawa with documents
about the repatriants returning >from the USSR and wonder where exactly
this archive is located (My original message January 25th)
Peter Jaseem kindly directed me to the Jewish Historical Institute
(Zydowski Instytut Historyczny) in Warsaw.
This is NOT the archive I am looking for. I am looking for a general
Polish archive for ALL repatriants - Jewish and Christian Poles.
Any good suggestions?

Re: photos of immigrants' ships #general

Hafcjf@...
 

Jeff Malka asks where he can obtain photos of the ships of his ancestors. I
would suggest the excellent site:

http://www.kinshipsprints.com

KinShips, The Vessels of Your Immigrant Ancestors includes hundreds of
prints (available for purchase) of ships which came to this country. They
are easily categorized alphabetically.

Jeff, there were photos of the Merion and the Columbia, but none for the
Thomas W. Gregory. For that one, I'd suggest a search at google.com

Hope this helps,

St. Michaels Hungary #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Thank you one and all, who have responded to my inquiry about the
location of St. Michael's, Hungary. I have come to realize that (a) my
command of the Hungarian language is, as I suspected, nil and (b) I need
to know more than I know at present to pinpoint the appropriate town.

I believe that Mr. Neuwirth's suggestion is the most likely: "a suburb
of Budapest called Rákos Szentmihály."

U.S. Civil War Soldier Database #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

For those who haven't found this site, there is a great Civil War Database
at: http://jewish-history.com/frmdbSearch.asp
You have to fill in all categories to do a search. The clue to doing this
quickly is that you go to the top of each category and press the shift key
and the down arrow key at the same time. Just keep these keys down until
you get to the end of each topic area. This will allow the database to
search for every possibility at one time. For those of you with relatives,
who served in this war you can find out regiment, branch of service, rank
and state.

For fascinating Jewish-related Civil War info. >from both the Confederate
and Union viewpoint (soldiers' diaries, etc.), you can go to the homepage
for this site at: http://jewish-history.com/civilwar.htm

I only wish my relatives crossed the pond in time to be on this database.
As Phyllis Kramer always says, "Happy hunting!"
