JewishGeners,

I have just been informed by an administrator at the Family History Library

missing. They have recommended that I contact Mr Myron Momryk (who has the

strange.

Dear Eva,

I am sorry for the misunderstanding. The records you are looking for are
called "akta PUR" or "akta Panstwowego Urzedu Repatriacyjnego" (records of
Panstwowy Urzad Repatriacyjny - /State Repatriation Authority/) and are most
likely deposited at the Archiwum Akt Nowych, ul. Hankiewicza 1, Warsaw,

survivor as child and adult. Holocaust child survivors and children in
countries such as Bosnia, Cambodia, and Rwanda.

3) The educational track will address teaching about Children In The
Holocaust and other genocides in schools, universities, and other
learning institutions.

This is the name of the landsmannshaft my ggf was part of, but I have no
idea if they're related. In 1994, I posted this, about the Odessa Mutual
Relief Association,to JewishGen:

My ggf, Peter Lieberman, apparently founded this group in Odessa. In
1888, he and, I'm told, the others in this group immigrated together,
living near each other on the Lower East Side (my family lived at 87
Chrystie St. in both 1910 and 1920). They purchased a cemetery plot
together, and he and his wife are buried there.

By the time the entrance posts to the plot was erected, in 1930, they
lived in Brooklyn.

My guess is that there were many such landsmannshaften, so that having
more than one for immigrants >from Odessa is not unlikely. Again, in '94,
I posted a listing of the members listed on the posts at the entrance to
their plot in Mt. Zion Cemetery in Queens, NY:

Re: Arrived at Port of New York from Montreal #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

In 1900 if your uncle went >from Montreal to New York in steerage, then he
went through Ellis Island. If the family had some money, and he went in
first or second class or something like that, then he didn't go to Ellis
Island! I guess the theory was that if you had some money, you could take
care of yourself.

It was still the Port of New York, however, and New York Passenger Lists
exist and are indexed for that time.

Of course, he could possibly have meant New York State not city and crossed
the Saint Lawrence into New York State somewhere else. Those records would
be in St. Albans, VT immigration lists.

Witl and Chaya #general

Jacob D. Goldstein <jake@...>
 

The Yiddish female name Witl (Wittel, Vitl, Vitte) apparently arose as a
substitute for Chaya. Both names derive >from "life"; Chaya >from the
Hebrew (Chai) and Witl >from the Latin (Vita). Can anyone shed some light
as to 1) when this usage became common and 2) why it occurred among
speakers of Germanic languages? If the name can be traced back to the
Sephardic exodus >from Spain, what were its Spanish roots?

Now here's the harder question, if you sent to the INS asking for a
naturalization form do they also search for the Alien Registration Cards?
I know that could be impossible to answer but may be some one can help me?
Alien Registration Cards (also known as "green" cards) were/are issued by
the INS to those who had been granted legal residency in the US. The cards
were/are supposed to be carried at all times by resident aliens to prove
their legal status in the US. The INS would not keep a copy of the card
but their records would indicate that such a card was issued.

Where is Czaiczelic? #general

Daniel S. Katz <dsk@...>
 

Is anyone familiar with the town of Czaiczelic? It's listed
in a 1920 passenger manifest as being in Poland, but everything
in that manifest that is in Ukraine and Russia is also listed
as being in Poland, perhaps because the US didn't recognize the
Russia government at that time?

Thanks,
