I have a copy of a death certificate for the above. This is not my David
HANDELMAN.
This person died July 9, 1930. His wife's name was Mary. He resided on
Phillips Av., in Chicago, IL. He was in the US for 40 years prior to his
death. He was about 45 years old at his death. If this is familiar to you
please contact me privately.

There are detailed lists and histories at the Archives of Latvians and
Estonians in Israel at Kibbutz Shefayim. If you are located in Israel or
intend to make a trip to the Homeland, the visit would be more than
worthwhile. Please see if you can get ahold of the SIG-LATVIA BULLETIN
which will be published next month in which there is a detailed article
about the Shoah holdings at the Shefayim archives. The database of this and
other holdings of the Archives will soon be up at the All Latvia Database
site.

I recently discovered that some ancestors took the Queen Mary to the United
States. What is the name of the shipping company that owned the Queen Mary?
Are passenger manifests available? The voyage took place in about 1940.

Re: Half Aunt #general

Dear Stacy, et al

It sounds to me as though the common relative would be either the mother
or father of woman one. In my case, my mother married twice. In her
first marriage, I was the only child. In her second marriage, she had 3
sons. They are (technically) my half-brothers. I suppose their
children are my half-neices and nephews, although I never think of it
that way.

I hate to disagree with Alexander Sharon, as most of the time he
is absolutely right <grin> but...there certainly were Galician
towns which had no Jewish population!
Dear Phyllis,

There were few odd towns in Galicia in which Jews did not settle - probably
those towns were not worth it.
But seriously - it would be easier task to identify number of towns where
Jewish people didn't reside than to list all towns were they have settled.
Jews in Galicia have provided an economical bridge between the Gentile
villages. Even if the Jewish presence was not documented in some villages,
they were residing in nearby shttels.

My source is a 1900 galician gazeteer...(at the Mormons on
microfilm#1187928) entitled Galicien Herausgegeben Von Der KK
Statistischen Zentralkommission, published in Vienna in 1907.

This fascinating gazetteer lists thousands of small towns, and
for each it presents the area in hektars, population of
men/women/children broken down into Germans, Polish and other,
and also broken down into Roman-Catholics, Grieschkatholsch and
Israelitsch...i.e.: how many Jews were in the individual towns in
1900.

Since it's grouped by province, I used it to easily figure out
the names of towns near my shtetls with Jewish populations. This
was very helpful when tracing families, because when Jews
married, often to someone >from a nearby shtetl...someone had to
move!!

happy hunting!

Re: shetl Piaskiloike = Piaski Wielkie #general

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Sue,

"Piaskiloike" sounds an feels like Poland's Piaski Wielkie [Pyas keeh Weh
lkeh], which literally translates as a "Grand Dunes".
Despite it's "sandy" name, town is not located in Sahara but as you have
indicated, near Krakow.
You can identify this town, located SE >from Krakow on the road toWieliczka,
through the ShtetlSeeker.
Town had over 50 Jewish population in prewar Poland. It appears that town is
now incorporated within the Metropolitan Krakow area.

It's amazing how the immigration scribes have managed to twist our ancestors
shtetls names and even the country of origin.
What kind of an uneducated guys NY Port Authority were employing 100 years
ago? Couldn't they filter them through the simple geography test or at least
allow them to connect to ShtetlSeeker? On the other hand, many of our
ancestors have no idea where they were coming >from anyway.

Herman WEISBERG and Family #general

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

A recent find on my family tree is Herman WEISBERG, born January 1900 and
died August 1985. Most, if not all, of his life was spent in the New York
city area. Herman was the son of Simon and Eva (HOROWITZ) WEISBERG.

I have already researched the FTJP and Discussion Archives. Any
information about Herman, his parents or decendents (if any) would be
greatly appreciated.
