Searching: CYWINER Family - Warsaw #general

Michael Trapunsky <mtrap@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm searching for the CYWINER Family >from Warsaw, Wolomin and Makow.

My great great grandfather, Yitzchak CYWINER, was born in Warsaw in 1865.
He was married to Chaia Esther DZWONKOWSKI. Their children - Menicha,
Zelig, Alter Moshe, Abraham and Chana - were all born in Wolomin between
the years of 1887 and 1905.

Yitzchak and Chaia Esther died in 1910/1911 of an epidemic. After that
their children moved to Makow.

If anyone has any information regarding this CYWINER family I would really
love to hear back >from you concerning this.

Thanks very much,

Michael Trapunsky

SANDEROVITCH from Zhashkov? #general

James D. Thrasher <jd913@...>
 

Does anyone have any information on the Sanderovitch family, arriving in
Philadelphia around 1920? They lived in a shtetl in the Ukraine called
Zhashkov (spelling?) Any help would be appreciated.

Re: New Haven, CT, Vital Records - how long to wait? #general

The best way to obtain vital records for Connecticut is to go to
< http://vitalrec.com > which is the United States Vital Statistics site.
Click on "c" for Connecticut, then follow instructions. Forms for
births, deaths, marriages can be downloaded >from the site, or you can
simply read instructions and send a letter. Sending queries to the towns
can be very slow; Town Clerks all over the state do their best, but
often are short-handed and genealogy is not their number one priority.

GOLDSTEIN: L'vov; Lemberg #general

IRSWED <irswed@...>
 

This is a request >from an old friend who does not have access to computer and
lives in a different state then I do.

She is searching for her late mother's brother. Her late parents were both
survivors of concentration camps. My friend said her mother was always trying
to find out about this brother. This is what I know right at this moment.

Sophie GOLDSTEIN had a brother (?). They came >from L'vov. Their father was a
Dr. and their mother owned land in Lemberg. They were wealthy. This brother,
was studying abroad when the war broke out. Spohie could never find out if he
lived or died. If he were alive, he would be approx. 80. My friend and her
sister are the only family remaining of her parents.

Thank-you, Irene Swedroe, Ca. IRSWED@aol.com

Chronograms #general

David Fielker <david@...>
 

According to my Chambers Dictionary, a chronogram is "an inscription or
phrase in which letters form a date in Roman numerals".

I suppose when you use 'DIV' for 'divorced' on your family tree it could be
mistaken for 504.

Find in the "Britannica" about Chronogram.

Chro.no.gram : an inscription, sentence, or phrase in which certain
letters express a date or epoch

He had to be able to handle chronograms, codes based on
the numerical values of a phrase or verse, which, when understood, gave the date
of some relevant event. Later writers sometimes supplied the date of a book's
compilation by hiding a chronogram in its title.

Re: IGI Discussion #poland

Jim & Sara Feldman <feldmans@...>
 

In reply to Gary Maher's proposition that to the dead, LDS conversion
hardly matters, while not disagreeing with the premise that the dead
are not in the loop, I believe that he misses the whole point of the
issue -- in fact of several issues.

1) The Christian community has been after our Jewish souls for two
millenia. They want us to believe that they are only interested in
our welfare. To that point we have as outstanding examples of their
concern the Spanish Inquisition and the Holocaust. The problem is
that if we do not want their help, they get very angry. A central
premise in the Christian faith is that since Jesus did his thing,
there is no reason for the Jews to exist. Not too surprisingly, we do
not see it that way. Furthermore, we get quite testy when they either
kill us for our beliefs or sneak around to gather up our forefathers
and the victims of the worst piece of genocide the world has yet
produced. It may not affect the dead; it most certainly affects,
insults and degrades the living. And they know that it does.

2) Your effort to define who is a Jew is not only historically wrong
but also religiously wrong. According to Halacha, to be a Jew, you
have either to have a Jewish mother or to go through an appropriate
conversion process. The only debate of this most divisive question in
Israel is over what is "appropriate."

Re: Mormon baptism #poland

korman3 <korman3@...>
 

If you have any Mormons in your family tree, they have every right to
baptise your common ancestors. The problem arose when a couple of very
zealous Mormons were baptising people who were not related to them.
Those baptisms were undone by the Church.

Supposedly, a deceased person has the right to accept or reject the
baptism. I just imagine my deceased relatives saying "thanks, but no
thanks" and I leave it alone.
