Searching: POLONETSKY #general

Glenda Rogers <gar929@...>
 

Back in October I posted that I was researching POLONETSKY of Salem, Mass.
Through that post a "cousin" telephoned, whom I knew nothing about. The
RASPLERS of Delray Beach are related through Rebecca Polonetsky ROSEN. What a wonderful surprise that was.

So I thought I'd press my luck and see if there are any other POLONETSKY
genealogists out there:

My grandfather, Samuel POLONETSKY had the following siblings:
Lena POLONETSKY SONKIN; Bronx, NY?
Rebecca POLONETSKY ROSEN; Bronx , NY?
Shimeon POLONETSKY (POLAN); Iowa?
Mike POLAN; Scranton, PA?
Elliott POLONETSKY. ?

If anyone has additional information about these or any other members of the POLONETSKY family, I would appreciate their contacting me directly.

Hopefully I'll find more new cousins!!!

As part of the Polish State Archives /Jewish Records Indexing -

of all the Jewish vital records for the towns/years in the Mlawa

I recently wrote and said that the London School of Jewish Studies at
Schaller House, Albert Road, London NW4 2SJ Telephone 0181 203 6102 is a
good source of information. The Liberian is Mr Ezra Kahan. They now have an email address which is lsjs@mailbox.ulcc.ac.uk
Their website is www.brijnet.org/lsjs/
They are primarily a modern orthodox Yeshiva/Yeshevot but their library
houses an amazing collection of Judaica.
If Mr Ezra Kahan is not aware himself of the information you are looking
for I can almost guarantee he will know of a book or journal that can
assist!!
Good luck.
Please note new email address!

I am seeking any information on Cieplice, Poland. It is located a few miles
north of Sieniawa, and not far >from Jaroslaw. My great grandfather Michael
NAGURNEY was born there in 1885, when this area was a part of Galicia, Austria
Hungary. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1903. I would appreciate any information about Cieplice, and any tips on the best way to research the town and its records.

the first bearer of the name is a Jacob ben Wolf SRUH, servant of Markus

Georgen near Preszburg ca. 1803, died in Vienna 1. IV. 1868, merchant,
married to Therese KORITSCHONER >from Preszburg). Another SRUH was merchant
in Neutra in 1859.

Where is Grosse Cochsin? #general

Martin Miller <millerm@...>
 

One of our cousins has written me about the birthplace of her father:

-----Original Message-----
He was born in East Prussia in the small town of Grosse Cochsin, which he
said
was near Koenigsburg


Another cousin gave me the same name, pronounced KAK-shin. I have checked
all the usual sources, the ShtetlSeeker, etc. and have come up empty-handed,
unless I am missing the obvious.

Any ideas >from anyone?

How do I find an application for immigration from the 1910-1920's? #general

George
 

My grandfather apparently applied for immigration papers to the United States
in the teens or 20's. He lived in Poland. The application apparently was
granted, but the family stayed in Poland. I would love to find the
application. Would there be a picture attached? There are no photos of my
grandfather. Could anyway help me with this search? Thank you,

How do I find documents in Vienna? #general

George
 

Hello,
My great-grandparents and grandparents emigrated >from near Lviv to Vienna
around 1900 to 1920's. I was interested in obtaining their visa applications
from Vienna. Has anyone ever tried to do this? I can even obtain their last
known addresses.
Also, my grandfather apparently served in WWI. Is there any way to get a
hold of documents regarding to his service in that war?

I once wrote to the Kultesgemeinde, but I don't think they would have
information about this.
