PICKHOLZ of Missouri #general

nj55turtle@...
 

The 1930 US Census, for Washington (Franklin County), Missouri list a family
called PICKHOLZ. They include --

Herman (39), Frances (37), children- Agnes (15), Clara (13), and Mildred
(11). This is the only finding I have for this family. Assuming they are
Jewish s most Pickholtz's (various spellings) are, where would they be
buried? The nearest city of any size would be St. Louis. Are there Jewish
cemeteries there? If so, could someone look and see if these people might
be buried there? The census also says the entire family was born in
Missouri. With that being so, where might I go to find marriage, birth,
death records with only the above info known?

Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated, no matter how little.

Looking for WAXMAN (or any variation) #general

Deborah Santiago <debinhas@...>
 

I just found out that my grandfather's sister (supposely dead in the
Holocaust) married a man called WAXMAN in 1929 or 1930 in Vierjbnick,
Poland. Her name was Dvora (or Deborah). She was born in Vierjbnick,
in 1898. She was the elderly of 5 children born in the marriage of
Usher UNIGER and Golda CITRIMBAUN. My grandfather, Abel, came to
Brasil around 1925. If anyone has any news about this family, please
write. I also have some pictures of them. My grandfather looked for
them after WWII but had no success at all.

Thanks a lot,

Deborah

Re: question about Turkish geography #general

Dear Geners,
I need some help with turkish geography. Does anyone know of a town near
Istanbul called Polanez Koy (Polish Peoples Village)??

Abner Turk
Weston Fl
Abner,

My wife Israeli uncle, who is now 93 and was born and raised in Istanbul,
told us about nearby Istanbul Polish village that was (and probably still
is) a tourist attraction since villagers have preserved their national
customs.

Village is known as Adampol or Polonezkoy. You may also come across the
alternative names of Adamkoy or Polonez karyesi.

Historically, villagers (or rather homesteaders) were not engaged in the
agriculture but in the hunting activities. This probably is associated with
the fact that village founders have been the Polish noblemen.

Istanbul (Constantinopole) has been one of the immigration centers
established by the Polish patriots that fled the country following November
1831 National Uprising against the Russian occupiers. Names of the Prince
Adam Czartoryski and the great national poet Adam Mickiewicz, who has died
in Constantinopole, are associated with this period and the Polish
settlements in Turkey.

Hope this help,

Re: gold chain watches #galicia

Peter Zavon <PZavon@...>
 

Interesting discussion.

You might want to keep this in perspective by remembering that not all
watches were costly, nor were all chains gold, even if they had a golden
color. That helped less prosperous people give the appearance of greater
prosperity.

from the 1880's or thereabouts, for example, VERY inexpensive watches were
exported throughout the world >from factories in Waterbury, CT. In fact the
term "Waterbury watch" became synonymous with "cheap watch" These were
pocket watches for men and the smaller equivalent for women. The wristwatch
came later.

The tree that "eats" gravestones - this time with the photos #galicia

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

In May 2002, after my visit to Lubaczow, I wrote a little text about a tree
at the Jewish cemetery in Lubaczow that "eats" gravestones.
Several persons wrote to me after that telling me that photos showing this,
would be worth more than thousand words.

Now a Polish culture magazine on the Internet named Zwoje (Scrolls), nearly
all in Polish, has published the text with the photos, in English and
Polish. Next to my text is the one Zenon Lis wrote. Zenon is originally from
the Lubaczow area, but now lives in New York. We had corresponded on the
internet when Zenon told me how he, a Polish student, remembered looking at
that same tree >from his highschool window in Lubaczow around twenty years
ago. When he saw my photos and read my little text, he contacted Andrew
Kobos, the editor of Zwoje, and this is what came out
http://www.zwoje.com/zwoje33/text15.htm

The message remains the same: We must hurry up to document the remains of
Jewish life in Galicia, before nature and time erase what is still there.

Phyllis Goldberg and her grandson, Henry Goldberg #galicia

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

Thursday night , December 11, I turned on Ted Koppel's show
"Nightline," at 11:30 pm, which I rarely do (because I find it hard
to stay awake). Why I decided to watch on Thursday despite the fact
that I was rather sleepy I don't really understand, or perhaps I
don't want to admit. But I propped up my pillows, set the sleep timer
on the TV remote, and started watching. What appeared on the screen
kept me awake, riveted.

Koppel announced that Henry Goldberg, who had suffered >from Fanconia
Anemia the short 6 years of his life, had passed away that morning.
They replayed a previously shown story on Henry and his parents'
efforts to keep him alive.

That brought back a wash of memories of his grandmother, Phyllis
Goldberg, who died in February, and who had become a dear friend. She
was a tireless and accomplished volunteer for the Yizkor Book Project
and other JewishGen projects. Up to a month before her own death, as
she struggled with her final illness, she kept asking for projects to
work on, saying to me that these were her legacy. She emailed me
photos of her and Henry, both wearing baseball caps to hide the bald
heads. She emailed me a photo of her undergoing chemo while sitting
in a chair proofreading a file for JewishGen. She emailed me parts
of the daily diary her daughter-in-law kept of Henry's ups and downs,
of the extensive medical procedures he underwent, of the family's
emotions, and of Henry's indomitable spirit. These were
heart-wrenching but also amazing insights into a family of
remarkable people.

My restless night was full of dreams of Phyllis and when I awoke I
felt it was no accident that I had turned on Nightline. I have been
blessed and enriched by Phyllis's friendship and concern for others.
Thank you, Phyllis and Henry, two beautiful souls.
