Brooklyn Naturalization index now 83,000 #general

Jgsny@...
 

The JGS (NY) has updated the online searchable database of the index to
Brooklyn Naturalizations (1907 - 1924) located in the Kings County Clerk's
Office. Although still under construction and growing, the database can be
accessed and searched. It is accessible through the JGS (NY) homepage
located at http://www.jgsny.org

There are now, more than 83,000 names of individuals naturalized in the
Kings County Supreme Court in this database. Please keep in mind that with
this announcement there may be a flood of users that may possibly tie up
the system. Be patient and try again later.

Where is Kraszewo/Kroczewo #general

David Colman <dybk@...>
 

My ggg grandfather, Szymin Jakub KALMANOWICZ, was >from "Kraszewo",
according to his son's marriage record in Sierpc, Poland (about 24 km.
north of Plock).

There appear to be 2 Kraszewo's in the area; one outside of Ciechenow
and the other outside of Mlawa.

After searching all of the sites and databases I could think of, I
cannot find any clues as to which one it may have been. Does anybody
know if either had Jews?

I did discover that the LDS microfilms include christian films for a
town called Kroczewo in the Plonsk region - is it the same town as
either of the above?

Searching: KALMANOWICZ, NISBAUM, KRUPIARZ, SZYMKOWICZ, Sierpc, Pol.
BANK, SERWATKA, KROTKI/CHILOWICZ, KOPLOWICZ, Wloszczowa & Szczekociny,Pol.
FUKS, SCYZORYK, Dzialoszyce, Pol.CHERNIAK, MAISTER, Minsk>Riga>St.Petersberg
RAJEWSKY, GRYNSZPAN, KORNFELD, Kielce/Radom area
SZWARCMAN, BROCHSZTAJN, SZERMAN, Ozarow & Ostrowiec Sw., Pol

Sometimes, but not always.

Yossi could also be a name on its own.

Yoshi could also be a diminutive for Joshua, Yeshayahu or
similar.

Hello

Yossi is Joseph or Yossef in Hebrew, Yoshi can be the same or be
derivative of Yoshua (Joshua).

Wolf Is it a jewish name? #general

cbarony <keith@...>
 

Hi, I am an English Christian Church of England, married to a German
Catholic. Her family are very reticent to talk about the past and
especially the war. Her mothers maiden name was Wolf with an umlaut.
She has recently been told this is a German Jewish name could anybody
confirm this. If I have offended anybody with this question it is not
intentional just curiosity.
Thank you.
