Hello,
I have been doing research on my mother's family, the CAPLINs, and a
new-found cousin gave me some interesting information. He
told me that my grandfather and his brothers originally came from
Russia > (formerly spelled KAPLAN), and were brought to London, England
by the > Rothschild family. I just found information via the internet
saying that the Rothschild family helped fund the Jews' Free School.
They "provided immigrant children with a refuge and a means of escape
from poverty, educated them, anglicized them and sent them out to the
world fit to contribute to society."
Is anyone familiar with this organization? Do you know if there are
existing records that would help me with my research? >Thank you!

A proper Polish word is DA,BROWA (oak wood). Polish a, ("a" with the
tail) is pronounced as nasal "o", hence Dabrowa is pronounced as
[Dohn broh vah]. There are virtually hundreds of Polish villages named
Da,browa, Da,browka, De,bice, De,bno, De,bowe, De,by and so on.
The largest know Da,browa is industrial city Dabrowa Gornicza, (ex
Russian Empire territory) which next to neighboring towns of Zawiercie,
Bedzin and Sosnowiec formed Zaglebie Region with large Jewish population
prior to W.W.II. (The main heroes of tragic comic book "Maus" are from
this region).

How Da,browa became known as archaic Dombrowa? Russians have replaced
nasal Polish "a," with nearest sounding "om" in Cyrillic, and Austrians
used "Dabrowa" (without the tail in 'a'.
Jewish people have also adopted name Dombrowa (e.g.. main Jewish
communist spy during W.W.II in Belgium, chief of organization "Red
Orchestra" (Rouge Orchestre), Leopold Trepper used pseudonym "Domb". He
was originally >from Da,browa (Dombrowa) Gornicza.

Searching For Naomi ZIKMUND-FISHER #general

E Elsar <eelsar@...>
 

While searching through the Jewishgen discussion archives for the surname
KAMPF, I came upon a message >from Naomi Zikmund-Fisher (January, 1996).
In this message she mentioned the surname Kampf, among others, and
stated that she could trace these names to the Vilna Goan.

I tried the E-Mail given and found that the server no longer exists.

She apparently teaches in the Pittsburgh Public School system.

I would appreciate if any of you would help me in finding her current
address or E-Mail.

A very Happy New Year to you all

London wedding circa 1890 #general

David Gordon <dgordon@...>
 

My ggf, Lazar (Louis) GORDON, was born in Kaunas (?) around 1866. He
emigrated to England at some later date, but whether he did so with any
family or alone is unknown. His first child, Nathan, was born in London
in 1893 as were all but the last two of his children. >from this I
surmise that he was married in London, probably sometime between
1890-92. His wife, Bluma (Flora) LEVIN was also >from Kaunas so it is,
unfortunately, also possible that they were married before they
emigrated. However, working on the assumption that they were married in
London, is there any way at all of determining (or to search) which shul
they were married in? Please reply privately--unless this seems likely
to be of broader interest.
