ggf Melamed #general

Albert Gershman <gershie@...>
 

Recent information suggests that my GGF Avraham Zev (Wolf) Dufine was,
besides being a Blacksmith, also a Melamed in the Shtetl of Mezhirich
(Ukraine). Is this new bit of information a new door? Is there a
listing/database/whatever that I can now explore? ....and how does one
go about accessing it. Even better, is anyone in Jewishgenland sitting
on the answer?

Warsaw Cemetery Project-Success Story #general

Paul NMN B
 

Every few months I search the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland for records
of my maternal family name.

Well, not too long ago, a new record appeared, the twenty-third record of
a family member. However, it was not a Birth/Marriage/Death record, but a
notice that this member is buried in the Warsaw Cemetery.

I followed the instructions which followed the listing of twenty three
family records and wrote a letter to the head of the cemetery and
requested photos of the tombstone.

After sending my required $38.00, I shortly received two photos (whose
quality pleases this photographer's heart) clearly showing all the text.
I would like to share it with the list: (Translated by Rabbi in Atlanta,
Georgia.)

"Here is buried,
An Honest and Honorable Man,
A God Fearer,
Heavy with positive qualities.
Gave tirelessly all his life,
And guided his children on a straight path.
Kalman Abraham,
Son of Moshe Yaakov.
12Nisan5674" (JewishGen's calendar calculator = Wednesday, April 8, 1914).

Kalman is the older brother of my Great-grandfather and Moshe Yaakov, their
father had his name passed along to my Grandfather.

The person who placed the words on Kalman's gravestone exhibits, I believe,
great love for the man. These words will now be placed in the family history.

I'm sure Kalman's great-granddaughter (named for him) will be happy to
receive the photo.

Thanks to all connected with JewishGen and the Jewish Records Indexing-
Poland Project for making this possible.

Wola, Lodz, and the surrounding area.

We need your help to reach a successful conclusion to this final phase of
the PSA Project. If you are interested in participating in a special
program aimed at facilitating the completion of this final phase --

Re: What was the surname WITCOOP in Ukraine? #general

My uncle Theodore MOED (1891-1980) married Rose WHITCUP (1892-1964), who
was born in Goniadz, Lomza Province, Poland. They met in the U.S.A. and
were married in New York, I think, on March 31, 1917. There are quite a
few WHITCUP relatives in the U.S. You may want to search:

I would guess that WHITCUP might be an anglicized version of WITCOOP.
Good luck!

Poland birth record #general

Foodphile@...
 

I was so excited to receive my grandfather's (Harry HIRSCH) birth record
from Poland!
I wrote the inital request several months ago and received a letter
directing me to the proper office. After re-sending my request, I
received the birth record less than 2 months later. However, I'm in a
dilemma over the town in which my grandfather was born. He always said he
was >from Grybow (map: 49 38 20 57) but his neice, who is the only survivor
of the Holocaust, now living in Israel, has told me that the town was
actually Skrzyzsow (map:49 59 20 57). The actual birth record lists the
town as Strzylawka. The problem I have is that there is no mention of
this town in "Where Once We Walked", and nothing in Shtetl Seeker. Any
and all opinions will be most welcome!

Re: The Name "WACHS" #general

Jim & Sara Feldman <feldmans@...>
 

Elissa:

I have run into many versions of Wachs in Polish records:
Wax, Waks, Waksman etc, but always as a last name. The name "Postel"
is not listed in Beider's book, nor anything close to it.

Subject: The Name "WACHS"
From: "E. Hunter" <hushline@my-deja.com>

X-Message-Number: 3

I have obtained a document that states my grandfather's full name as
Saul Wachs Postel. Although I still haven't tracked down the town he
was from, it was somewhere in Galicia/Austria-Poland. He was born
approximately 1866. I have so far gotten about one inch >from nowhere in
tracing Postels >from that area. Does anybody know if "Wachs" was a
man's name that could be used as either a first or middle name, or if
perhaps a middle name may have been the mother's maiden name?

Thank you in advance for any enlightenment.

Holocaust Survivors Reference #general

Hafcjf@...
 

I thought I would let Jewishgenners know about a reference book that may
prove valuable to them. The Benjamin and Vladka Meed Registry of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors, published in 1966 by the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum lists the names of American and Canadian survivors.

The book comes in two volumes. Vol. 1 is an alphabetical listing of
survivors who have filled out cards and registered with the Holocaust
Museum. It lists the name of the person; includes their new surname if
they have married and lists a string of places that they went starting
with their birthplace. (For instance, Brzeziny, Lodz, Auschwitz).
Unfortunately, due to privacy restrictions, it does not list any other
information nor give addresses.

Vol 2 can come in handy if you're researching several names >from a
specific town. It lists survivors according to their birthplace or town
before the war.

Hope this helps someone out there.
