GOALWIN, ETKIN and GOLDBERG #general

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

My paternal Grandmother was Sarah (GOLDBERG) SAKOFF. She and my grandfather
emigrated >from Alexandrovsk (Ekaterinaslav gub) in 1906 and arrived in New
York where she died in 1932.

Other family members also arrived at the turn of the century, including
Risse/Rose (GOLDBERG) ETKIN and Lazar GOLDBERG.

Louie and Risse ETKIN lived in the Bronx, NY and their children were Mary
(b. 1901), Celia (b. 1907) and Max (b. 1909).

Lazar and his wife had 6 children, 3 daughters and 3 sons. The daughters
were Freida and Ida and a third, name unknown. The sons included Harry,
Max, and a third, name unknown. The family, at some point, changed the
surname to GOALWIN. I found the obituary of Harry GOALWIN who died in 1969
on Long Island.

I am seeking further information on these two branches of the family.
Thank you.

Well, another difficult search. Can you be a bit more precised (if you
can of course) about in what area of Poland this particular shtetl could
be located. Any hints would be helpful - was it at least Galicia or
Russian Poland. There are some reasons for asking this question:

Zavada is a slavic name for the English word " a barrier" and as you
have written it, can be find in Slovakia (three shtetls)and one is
located in western Ukraine. This one in Ukraine, near town Turka in
Galicia is probably one you are looking for if yor ancestor have
originated >from Eastern Galicia part f Poland. This shtel is located in
what used to be Jewish settlement area:

http://www.expediamaps.com/results.asp?Place=Zavada&MT=&CO=20&RS=CHECKED&Form=CF

Please note that in Polish Zawada is written with "w" (Polish has to "v"
letter, but Slovak has, and the Ukrainian transcription to Latin, also
uses "v").

When you search bt using Polish equivalent of "zawada" you will arrive
with many more hamlets and villages all over Poland bearing this name:
31 (Thirty one alltogether)! :

http://www.expediamaps.com/results.asp?Place=Zawada&MT=&CO=20&RS=CHECKED&Form=CF


It is very difficult indeed to pinpoint the particular location without
the prior knowledge of the region.

Good luck,

Alexander Sharon

Serving the Russian Military #general

Patricia Adams
 

Deborah Dworski recently inquired about a family member serving as a tailor
in the Russian military. I have just had a relative provide me with some
wonderful history on a branch of my family. Before coming to the US (NYC)
in 1893 with his wife and three oldest daughters, my ggrandfather was
supposedly a tailor who made uniforms for the Czars army. He and the family
traveled between Moscow and Brest-Litovsk. Although I was also told by
other family that they came >from Chubakhenaroy. The reason he was able to
leave Russia was supposedly because of connections. Beyond the information
on the 1900 census, I have not yet been able to verify this information, if
I ever will be. This seems to follow somewhat what might be considered
service in the military.

My ggrandfather was Morris (Moshe/Moses) DUBIN, his wife Ethel (Etta/Yetta)
SCHNEIDER Dubin and Sarah, Hannah(Anna), Mollia(Molly), and Esther.

It would be interested in knowing if anyone has heard of this type of
service to the Czar and have any information about my family.

Thanks,

Interwar antisemitic legislation in Hungary. #hungary

Stefano Groszy <steven@...>
 

By chance, I had the opportunity to join a seminar in my town Milano -
Italy, in which Prof. Tamas Stark >from the Budapest Academy of History,
spoke about the above subject. I was not so uptodate about preliminaries
of antisemitism in Hungary, but what mostly surprised me was the
discrete defense in the early twenties by the jewish hungarian elite during Admiral Horthy's regime. Stark explained that the public face of the
regime showed a certain ruvidity toward Jews in order to molligy certain segments of the extreme right; but on the other hand governement representatives and the hungarian gentile elite still continued to have good relations and cooperation with the hungarian Jews. In fact it seems they were rather tolerant also in applying the restricted rules that were promulgated before the infamous three racist laws published after 1938.
If anybody had more infomation about this argument, or had a different
opinion I'd be interested knowing more.

Tamas Stark is not only a really accultured and passionate researcher -
Louis Schonfeld says he's probably one of the most outstanding experts
about the hungarian Shoa -, but mainly he's a positive and nice person:
I was happy to have met him.

Accidentally, he told me that in Mandok there still exists a jewish
cemetery. Can anybody can confirm this info?

Genealogy and Genetics #general

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

I have sudddnely been thrust into interest about genetics vs. genealogy. I
am having to deal with Prostatic Cancer (thankfully discovered early with
an "improved PSA blood test" ) and the doctors all asked about my father
and grandfathers.

I am certain that our awareness has not yet reached the level where anyone
records illnesses or causes of death as part of Genealogy. Am I right?
Ought this not to be added?
