MARGULES - Sosnowiec - Dabrowa Gornicza - Bedzin - Niwka #general

nigel wilson <wilsonettess@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have been assisting a friend who has been searching for her
family for many years perhaps you can help.

Ewa (Chave) MARGULES (maiden name) a hidden child of the Holocaust was
born in Sosnowiec in 1942.

Her father was Abram MARGULES, born in 1904. He was a permanent resident
of Bedzin, but lived in Niemce.

Her mother was Laja MARGULES, nee GUTERMAN, born 1915 in Dabrowa Gornicza.

Abram and Laja married in Niwka in 1932.

Paternal grandparents were Mordka Josek and Ester Rywka MARGULES, nee
DANCYGIER (Danziger). Maternal grandparents were Jankiel Josek and Sura
GUTERMAN, nee DANCYGIER (Danziger). 

Ester Ryfka MARGULES and Sura GUTERMAN were sisters, born DANCYGIER
(Danziger) in Szczekociny. Sura was married twice; her first husband's
surname was KAJZER (Kaiser).  Are there any descendants >from this marriage?

Her father's brother Pinkus MARGULES and his wife Sura Laja, nee PALIWODA,
and their two children, David and Raizel, perished in the Holocaust. 

Her father's sister Machela MARGULES married Szmul SZYLIT in 1930; another
sister Szprynca MARGULES married Moszek HERCBERG in 1932.
Her mother had a sister by the name of Breindla GUTERMAN; she was born in 1913
- what became of them?  Chave's immediate family were last heard of in
the Sosnowiec Ghetto.

Does Chave have any siblings, cousins, names of Aunts, Uncles that
she is unaware of - primarily what happened to her parents?

If anyone has information on the above please contact me directly.

Thank you.

Patricia Wilson (Israel)

Re: Uscie Biscupie - Businesses #galicia

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Hi Ervin,

A good source about business or occupations is the 1929 Polish Business
Directory. You can access that >from JewishGen's databases.

There is a town index and you can put in "Uscie." While there is an error
in the resulting page of possible towns, with someone having
mis-transcribed the name of your town, it should be easy enough to
recognize. Also, the directory spells the second part of the town's name
as Biskupie.

There, you will find a small list of professions in Polish, with a French
translation of the professions italicized in parentheses. Then this is
followed by the alphabetized family names.

That is at least something of a start.

book about WWI Jewish German POW in Grodno #belarus

naomi rosenthal <naomiro999@...>
 

In the early months of WWI, my grandfather, a Jewish German poet and soldier,
was captured by the Russians near Warsaw and taken to Grodno. There, Grodno's
most prominent doctor, chief doctor at the Red Cross hospital there, tried to
save him. This brave Jewish doctor and my grandfather's fates then merged.

This story is told through original letters, translated into English, which
family and friends sent as they tried desperately to find my grandfather and
arrange for his release. There are also letters >from Grodno officials and
Grodno's Chief Rabbi Abram Gelbort. If you are interested in Grodno or
WWI history, I think you will like this book, Searching for Hugo. It is
available now on Amazon.com and Amazon Europe.

Re: Post-1869 to early 20th Century Records for Raslavice, Slovakia #hungary

Beth Long
 

Hi Todd,

I know there is an very detailed census of Slovakia for the year 1930. It is available to view at the National Archive in Bratislava. The census contains the place and date of birth of each member of the family. These are the original paper documents, and are contained in a series of boxes. A large city might take up three boxes by itself, whereas a single box might contain the records of three or four smaller towns.

I was there several years ago, and was allowed to photograph freely.

Though the year of the census is 1930, one can find elderly members who might have been born >from about 1850 onward. I found it to be a pretty good substitute in the case of missing records.

Hi,

The 1869 Census records for the then separately-counted three parts of
the current Raslavice, Slovakia are available online or via film order
from Family Search and to at least sum extent on Jewish Gen, as are
records for a few years in the 1870's of Slovenske Raslavice on its own.

But I don't think I need to see those: I am interested in vital records
for the now unified Raslavice starting about 1885 or 1890 and continuing
to the latest 20th century dates which are formally available.

Did I miss something online including in the Family Search catalog? Are
these records available - if they exist - only in Slovakia (and which
one?) are other archives?

Thanks!
