Rzeszow Group & Kolbuszowa Region Group To Meet in NY #general

Marian Rubin
 

The Rzeszow Research Group and the Kolbuszowa Region Research
Group will hold consecutive Birds of a Feather meetings at the
NY conference on:
Tuesday, August 10
3:30 - 4:45 Kolbuszowa Region Group
5:00 - 6:15 Rzeszow Research Group
The room will be announced in the Conference schedule and in
a notice on the bulletin board.

The Rzeszow Research Group focuses on the city of Rzeszow.
The Kolbuszowa Region Research Group now includes towns
within a 30 mile radius of Kolbuszowa.

If you are researching families >from these towns, I hope you will
try to attend both informal meetings. It will give you a chance to
make contacts with the other researchers and to exchange
information. So many of our families had branches in several
of these towns.

Susana Leistner Bloch, coordinator of the Kolbuszowa Region
Group and I will attend both meetings. Learn about the Rzeszow
Group's projects, and bring your suggestions for projects. Let
others know about the work you have done. Or, let us help you
get started.

KASTENBAUM #galicia

FChenin@...
 

In the Nowy Targ yizkor book there is a picture of a family group. My
interpretation of the Hebrew letters is that it is the KASTENBAUM Family.
The man at the left end of the second row is Ignatz KASTENBAUM. When I first
saw the picture, I was thought that it was a picture of my uncle, Simon
Chenchinsky. My Father, Milton and my Uncle Joe have both seen the picture
and said, "That's my brother Simon.". Their mother, My grandmother, Regina
Buchbinder was >from Nowy Targ. Regina is the daughter of Solomon BUCHBINDER
and Miriam KLAPHOLZ/KLAPATZ. No one in my family has ever heard of
KASTENBAUM. Does any researching in Galicia know of a connection between
KASTENBAUM and BUCHBINDER or KLAPHOLZ/KLAPATZ.

Lissa (Leszno) Records 1750-1810? #general

SFalk81162 <sfalk81162@...>
 

This is a 2 part question:

1. Has anyone found Jewish records >from the town of Lissa in Posen province
(now Leszno, Poland) >from the time period >from 1750 to 1810? I am looking for
a birth record >from 1760 or 1767, and a death record >from 1807. The Mormon
archives contain later records, but not Jewish records >from this period.

2. I have heard that one can find records of Jewish births and deaths among
the Church records for the time period before about 1810 or so. Does anyone
have experience finding such Jewish records? Do they stand out for any reason
in the Church records? Has anyone looked at Church records for Lissa?

Thank you,

Search information in Polish or Lithuanian Archives? #general

stephen lubell
 

I have now ascertained that my Great-Grandfather Solomon Lubelski came
from the town of Lazdej in the former Russian province of Suwalki.
It is now written Lazdijai and is in Lithuania.

Before beginning any archival searches, I would welcome the opinion
of other JewishGenners where best to apply. The dates would be 1800
(or earlier) to the 1880s. Would I best apply to the Lithuanian State
archives or to the Polish National Archives?

With thanks in advance!

locating a town named Ponechono #general

nicole berline <nberline@...>
 

I would like to ask your help in locating a town named Ponechono as of
the following wedding record, >from Saint-Petersburg synagogue 1869:

" Itska Yudelovitch LEIBOVITCH city resident (in russian: meshchanin)
of Vilno married Chaia Ita Naftalievna, maiden of the town of Ponechono,
5 oct 1869"

I have some reasons to believe that Ponechono was either in Lithuania or
in present day Russia.

from other sources I know that the bride's maiden name was HENDLER.
Itska Yudelovitch LEIBOVITCH (my ggguncle) became a member of the guild
of merchants of Saint-Petersburg.
