Jewish cadets c. 1915 #galicia

Caroline Curvan <Caroline.Curvan@...>
 

I've just posted a photo to ViewMate of my grandfather Josef
Zinker. I believe the photo was taken c. 1915. In it, he's
wearing some sort of a cadet's uniform. He variously described
himself as having served in WWI on the Galician front and of
attending the Imperial Austrian War College as well as the
Sigmund Freud School of Applied Psychoanalysis and the College
of Psychology in Vienna.

Might anyone have any insights? Is there a listing anywhere of
Jewish gymnasia? Towns associated with my grandfather and his
family are Lwow/Lemberg, Mosty-Wielke, Sokal and even possibly
Vienna.

Thanks very much for any help.

My posting to the list on August 28th (below) was subtly amended by
the list server, which appears to change the pound sterling symbol to
a 3.[MODERATOR NOTE: Lyris cannot read diacritics,etc. so do not use them!]

In case you were confused by the numbers, the bank transfer cost was
UK Pounds 9.50, not 39.50. Of course, these charges vary between
countries as well as banks. The overall cost of $35-40 was correct at
the time, but with current exchange rates is probably closer to $50
now!

Hello there!

Does anyone have any experiences the could share using this service?
Do you know if you ask for a specific document or do the give you
everything they can find for a specific person, ie birth, death,
marriage, children? Also, i am interested to know how long a search
takes and how international mail is? I think online would be better.

Thanks in advance,

Dear All

In February, 1944, Harry Aaron RABINOVITCH, a
Member of the Canadian Army Overseas 6-94557,
changed his surname to ROSS. He was a British
born subject and his wife was called Fidelma Collette.

My ggf was Aaron RABINOVITCH, and I therefore
wonder if Harry ROSS is related.

Please contact me on a1steve@bigpond.com if the

KUJAWSKI Ancestors in the UK #unitedkingdom

rnwoolf@...
 

I just discovered that a large, extended family named KUJAWSKI once lived in
England. The 1901 Census shows them living in three different towns:
Blackburn and Salford (in Lancashire) and Steppey (a town with which I'm not
familiar) in Kent. According to that Census, all of them seem to have been
born in England which for me came as a surprise; I expected to find that at
least one member of the family - the oldest and presumed patriarch, Joseph
(aged 63) - to have been have what was then Russia-Poland, since the root of
that name (Kujawa) is that of a region, there. Because my paternal
grandfather, Sjzia Wolf KUJAWSKI, immigrated to England (>from Poland) in the
mid-1890s, I was intrigued by the discovery that a family of the same name
was already living in the UK. According to my father (and one of his
brothers) when their father arrived at the Port of Hull at the age of 15 (or
maybe 17) he was alone and there was no one to greet him or "put a roof
over his head." (I should mention that by the time of his marriage to the
woman who was to become my grandmother, grandpa had change his name to Simon
WOLF (later WOOLF).

I realize, of course, that the KUJAWSKIs living in England at the time of
the 1901 Census may not have been related to my grandfather - nor even
Jewish, despite the fact that two members of that family were named Joseph
(as we all know, a common name among Jews) - but it's tempting to think that
my grandfather may have had some relatives living in England (originally
from the "Old Country") whom he never "bothered" to tell my father or his
other children about!

If anyone knows.of a family named KUJAWSKI (or their descendants) living
somewhere in Britain I would greatly appreciate hearing >from them. (Someone
once told me that he'd been in touch with an "old lady of that name who
lived in Blackburn" but unfortunately did not provide any more detailed
information.)

Registration of fatherhood or adoption? #unitedkingdom

kirsten.gradel@...
 

A relative born 1880 and married 1915, had, acc. to the family, no
children. However, when I recently searched FreeBMD for births, using
only his and his wife's surnames as search terms, up came birth of a
son in 1927. Quite a surprise, my husband smirked that the surprise
was surely bigger to the couple, both aged 49 in 1927.

I sent for the record which had another surprise because it is a re-
registration of a birth >from 1900, which I also sent for. It gives no
father but the mother is our relative's later wife.

So as I see it: We have two 20 year olds in 1900, he Jewish, she not.
She gives birth to a boy who is named as her later husband but with
her surname LORD. 1915 they marry - both his parents had died in 1914
- and in 1927 the husband re-registers the birth with himself as
father and with his surname ABRAHAMS. A handwritten right margin note
states on the 1900 B record: Re-registered under the Legitimia of Act
1926, on 24 December, 1927. Signed H.P.J.
On the 1927 record is a right margin note: N?. Seventeen. Signed by HPJ.

Now I wonder, is the 1927 registered father the biological father or
could there be an adoption behind the 1927 registration? The
expression Legitimia Act implies to me that birth fathers acc. to that
act could after 1926 legitimize fatherhood for children they had not
formerly registered as having fathered - for various reasons.

I can not find the father in 1901 Census, in 1911 he is noted in
parents' household.

Thanking in advance,

Kirsten Gradel,
