Re: Jewish Cemetery for Lodz prior to 1892 #general

Seflaum...
 

It is correct that the large Jewish cemetery in Lodz was established in
1892.
This establishment of this cemetery, the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe,
was prompted by a cholera epidemic that year and because of the closing of
the old Lodz Jewish cemetery on Wesola Street, established in 1811. Prior
to 1811, the Jews of Lodz were buried in surrounding communities, such as
Leczyca and Lutomiersk.

For information on the old Lodz cemetery, see this page:

I'm trying to locate the grave of my great grandfather, Isaac KYJAWSKI who
may or may not have been interred prior to 1892.

In his 01-09-01 message Amoz Chernoff expressed his frustration at not

I do not think there is a yizkor book for Czernowitz, (Czernovetsy,
Czernwicz) but there is mention of it, and maybe some description in a
general reference work: "Arim ve-imahot," Vol. 4. There is certainly an
article about Czernowitz in the Encyclopedia Judaica, although I don't know
whether it mentions the TCHERNIKOVSKY family.

I am certain that other Jewishgenners are interested in Czernowitz and
may have some information about it.

BAUMEL from Buczaz #galicia

Date 11 Jan 2001
From: Leslie Reich
Subject BAUMEL >from Buczaz

Jeff Balabon asked :

I am searching for any info about Chaim LANGINGER, his oldest daughter,
Miriam and her husband - Yehoshua BAUMOEL. All killed in the Holocaust.

Also searching for information on the DISTENFELD family >from Sambor,
Lvov,
Buczach.

There was a Rabbi Yehoshua Baumel who was born in Buczaz, Galicia in 1913.
He perished in the Holocaust, Auschwitz I think. He was married to a Chana
Shapiro, d. of a Rabbi.

This Y.B. wrote a biography in Yiddish of Rabbi Meir Shapiro the founder of
the famous
Yeshivah in Lublin (building still standing) in the 1920s.

This work was translated into English and published ny Philip Feldheim in
1994.
It contains a forward by Y.B's brother, Rabbi Yosef Baumol in USA who may
well be still alive. The forward has biographical material and photographs
regarding the author.


Hope you find a connection

Czwal #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

The surname Czwal is the Polish pronunciation of Schwall. When Jews
in Galicia were compelled to take surnames by the Austrian government,
the surnames were to be in the German language. A small percentage of
Jews already had surnames....some derived >from the Polish language and
some >from other languages, including Yiddish and very occasionally,
Hebrew. Therefore, you can assume that the name was probably Schwall
while Galicia was Austrian. After the first war, some Jews became
active in Polish nationalist movements and adopted Polish spellings for
their surnames. Others did so for economic or social reasons. There is
a lot of information about Rzeszow residents within Gesher Galicia's
membership and there is a Rzeszow group that has produced an index to a
partial list of pre-1877 vital records of the Jews of the city.
