Canadian Maritime Provinces onward #general

Cindy Taylor
 

Genners,

Several years ago, I ventured into Canada to follow a portion of the
rail trip (CPRR) that my maternal ggm, gm and her brother took from
St. John, NB to Boston. If you are writing a family history and need
some photographs I can oblige. Not being a railroad buff, I do not
know if, after clearing immigration in Vanceboro, they would have
taken the Maine Central, Boston & Maine R.R. or Grand Trunk RR. Most
likely the Maine Central that went >from Vanceboro down to Bangor and
then onto Portland where they possibly changed again.
I have photos of the last station in Canada prior to crossing the
border into Vanceboro, Maine (don't blink, you'd miss it) and some
various pictures of Vanceboro itself. You can find pictures of St.
John and Emerald Island on the web.

Polish Queenly Descent #general

Isabel Cymerman
 

Dear Nadia,
I suspect that Ita took on the name Jadwiga "when she had to", just as my
grandmother, Liba GRYNFARB, was sometimes called "Leokadja", the name of a
Catholic saint, when she needed to have a Polish name. My grandmother was
not Catholic...

From: RuthNW <ruthnw@comcast.net>
I just came across the record of a married woman whose given name
was originally Jadwiga. Was amazed to discover that Jadwiga was a
14th century Polish monarch!

Galician records: what is "Galicia Schematism" #general

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I have found through the genealogyindexer.org items under the title
"Galicia Schematism". Below you can see a "copy&pasted" example:

1876 Galicia Schematism, image 193 {d817}
Source: Malopolska Genealogical Society
Kalich Szyja, Ustrzyki doi. Moryles Naftali. Lutowiska.
liabi Mendel, Balogrod. Lwow. Rabin. Orenstein Hirsch, Lwow. Kaznodzieja.
Lowenstein Bernard, Lwow. Podrabin. Blumenfeld Wolf, Lwow. Szkoluik.
Gerster Samuel. Jaryczowj nowy. Schmelner Aron, Nawarja....

Can anyone tell me what are these lists all about?
At least for a few I am quite certain it is a list of communities rabbis,
but even if so, further details would be appreciated.

Thank you very much,

Thank you,

Seek information on Gluck Knitting Mills and Reliance Knitting Factory in New York in 1940's #germany

Judy Vasos
 

Hi - My mother-in-law came to the USA in 1940 after leaving Germany to
work in England as a domestic.
According to an affidavit of support for her parents to come to USA, she
worked at Gluck Knitting Mills 115 West 23rd Street, New York in October,
1940. Her son recalls his mother worked at Reliance Knitting at Astor
Place in New York in 1943 when he was born and after her second child,
she did piece work at home for Reliance.

We are writing the story of her life and would like to confirm her
employment.

Can anyone help me with information about Gluck and Reliance? Are they two
different knitting mills or did Gluck become Reliance? Both made gloves,
apparently the thumb and fingers had to be hand knitted. Was this a place
where many refugees worked? Was Astor Place the site of many such
factories in the early 1940s ? Any and all information is appreciated.

Re: Freiwillig miltardienst - voluntary military certificate - THANK YOU #germany

Judith Diamond
 

I should like to thank Renata Rosenau for her most informative response
re Freiwillig miltardienst.
I should add that I reported my father's age incorrectly on the original
question. He had been at the Gymnasium since he was 13 but the
certificate was given when he was 18, which makes more sense.

Searching SCHWIMMER from Mukachevo #subcarpathia

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

This is my first posting to the group. My g-g-gf was Yisroel/Israel
SCHWIMMER. He married Toba Etel BASCH (daughter of Ezra Yakov Basch)
of SPINKA (Sapinta) around 1875 and they settled in Munkacz(Mukachevo)
at some point. Yisroel passed away sometime before 1914 in or near
Munkacz (not to be confused with the Israel Schwimmer that came to the
USA and passed away around 1930) and Toba Etel passed away sometime
before 1900. That is when grandchildren started to be named after each
one.

I have found a posting in the old Munkacz cemetery for a Yisroel and one
for "wife of Yisroel". I have not found a birth record for Toba Etel
BASCH in the Marmores online records, but being born sometime around
1855, that might not be available. I am interested in going back one
generation, to my g-g-g-gp's. Does anyone have advice or ideas about
how to do that? I do have information on my other 29 g-g-g-gp's. These
are the only three missing. I know nothing about the mother and father of
Yisroel Schwimmer. For Toba Etel, while I know her father was Ezra Yakov
BASCH of Spinka (Sapinta), Romania (and can go back to his grandfather,
Pesach BASCH), there is disagreement on who Toba Etel's mother was. Some
say it was Zissel ADLER and some say Miriam SCHNECK. I have not found
any SCHNECK family in any BMD records posted online for Marmores.

Any ideas on where/if their death records might be accessible?

Re: Where is Szibo, Hungary? #hungary

You can't find, because it is - most probably - mispelled. The correct name
is Zsibo (with an accent on the o), today in Romania. See on Wikipedia

I have a record that someone was born in Szibo, Hungary. I can't locate that
place on a map.

Anyone know where it is, and what its current name might be.

Re: Where is Szibo, Hungary? #hungary

could it be zsibo in szilagy megye, in present-day romania? (romanian
spelling jibou.)

otherwise, it looks like an abbreviation, since "sz" is the usual
abbreviation of saint, possibly "szent ibolya". except that, among
all the other saints, i couldn't find an ibolya (popular feminine
name meaning violet).
