Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Pinchas of "Kalik" #ukraine

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow researchers,

During my research I came across 2 persons called Pinchas, ABD of a town called
Kalik. The two may be actually one, as I suspect they lived in the same period
approx (end of 18 century - beginning of the 19th).

1. Pinchas of Kalik, son of Rabbi Zeev Wolf of Zhitmoir, author of "Or Ha'Meir".
Pinchas was son-in-law of Rabbi Hirsh Leib Landa, the first of the chassidic Alik
dynasty. Pinchas was also father-in-law of Rabbi Yochanan of Rechmistrivka, son
of Rabbi Mordechai Twersky of Chernobyl.

2. Pinchas of Kalik, who married Rachel, daughter of R. Mordechai Margaliot of
Brody. Pinchas was the father of 1) Sander Shmuel of Horchov, father in-law of
Pinchas of Ustila, the grandson of Rabbi Mordechai of Neschiz 2) Mordechai of
Koretz, father-in-law of Rabbi Yosef of Tortshin, son of the "Choze" of Lublin

3) Moshe of Sadigora, author of "Pnei Moshe".

My questions:

- Is it possible that the two Pinchas are actually the same one ?

- Where is the town Kalik / Kalek located? what is the correct name ?
I spelled it according to hebrew writing, I am not sure about the right one.

- Any further details about Pinchas of Kalek (any of the two ...) and their /
his descendants / ancestors ?

- Is it possible that the family name Kalich / Kalech originates >from this town ?

Thanks in advance,

Yaron Pedhazur

Latvia SIG #Latvia IAJGS Conference Films #latvia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

For Latvian researchers attending the upcoming IAJGS conference in Salt Lake
City, we will be screening a special film of Latvian interest:

"My Jewish Grandfather" by Danish filmmaker, Casper Hoyberg, on Monday, July
16th at 2:30PM in the seminar theatre.

In this documentary, Hoyberg travels to Latvia and Israel, the place he was
born, where he delicately unlocks the secrets of a once-silent history and
in the process, forges deeper relationships with his grandmother and father.
In interviews with at-first reluctant relatives, he gently coaxes out the
story of his grandfather’s fate in the Russian army and learns a bit more
about his own identity. This film includes historic footage of Riga in the
years prior to, and during, WWII.

(DVDs of this film will be for sale at the conference.)

Another film which touches on the subject of Viennese Jews deported to Riga
during WWI is the excellent "Who Do You Think You Are?," a British
television series that shows the step-by-step genealogical sleuthing process
necessary to building a family tree and discover the fate of those lost in
the Holocaust. This episode deals with U.K. writer and performer, Stephen
Fry, tracing his roots. Recommended viewing for all dedicated researchers.

This film screens three times: Tuesday, July 17th - 2:00 PM, Wednesday,
July 18 6:30PM, Friday, July 20th - 8:30 AM.

Dear Fellow researchers,
I have recently recieved a document >from YIVO in New York that relates to
the town of Ostrowo (Ostrow Weilkopolski). However, it is all in Hebrew
which I can not read.
Can anyone suggest a reliable means of getting a translation. It is about 2
- 3 pages of printed Hebrew text and captions on 2 photographs.

Any suggestions or contacts are welcome
MODERATOR QUESTION: Is there some reason that you haven't simply posted JPG files
of this document to JewishGen's free ViewMate pages?

Burzenin new indices available #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Researchers,

I am very pleased to announce the addition of nearly 100
birth, marriage and death indices for the town of
Burzenin covering the period 1900-1903. The
years 1848, 1868-1899 are already searchable on-line on the
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland website.

The 20 top surnames listed most frequently in this town are:

SALAMONOWICZ, SERADZKA, SERADZKI, JAKUBOWICZ, TONDOWSKI,
ZEMEL,GOLDBART, TONDOWSKA, SZLEZINGER, SIJERADZKI, BUDA,
GRUSZKA, KORN, SKURKA, BRESLER, ERLICH, PIK, PRZEDBORSKI,
BERGMAN, LEWKOWICZ.

Burzenin is located at 51 28'/18 50' and 30.5 miles from
Lodz. It is only 5 miles west of Widawa, 5.6 miles
from Brzeznica, 9.3 miles >from Zloczow, and 16 miles from
both Zdunska Wola and Sieradz. If your family came >from any
of these towns, it is possible you also have family in Burzenin.

All those contributing no less than US$25 will qualify to
obtain the entire database of 763 indices as an Excel file
for personal research.

Your Qualifying Contribution ensures that you receive all
the data NOW, in advance of its general availability in the
JRI-Poland Online Searchable Database. It will also enable
you to study all the Burzenin record indices at
once, and perhaps find a family name whose connection you
had forgotten, or to work with the data (for example,
sorting by first name) to search for a grandmother's or
great-grandmother's elusive maiden name. Your participation
in supporting the indexing of records for Burzenin
can bring to light information you may have never imagined
you would find.
