Searching MARKEWICZ or MARKOWICZ, BROSCA., LIBUMECZ #poland

We are posting this message on behalf of Reina Benaderet de Navarro . The
message was received in Spanish. This is the translation:

<< I am searching for any relatives of my grandfather Sigmund MARKEWICZ (
Zigmund Markiewitz Brosca in some documents), born on 8 of July, 1903 in
the town of Sosnovicz. His father's name was Moises MARKEWICZ or
MARKOWICZ. and his mother Blima BROSCA. I believe my father lived for
some time in Oberchlesin , Poland.

I never knew much about my grandfather's family and much of the information
I have was obtained through the Polish Embassy in Montevideo. According to
them my grandfather had a brother called Jacobo Mayer Markowicz born in
1901, married to Estela Malka LIBUMECZ. They had two sons Moises Markowicz
born in 21/09/1929 and Frimeta Markowicz born in 31/12/1930.

The Polish Embassy official also said that there was a Concentration Camp
in Sosnoviz and most of the Jews of that town perished there and only some
managed to escape.

The reason we learned this is that my mother received a letter >from
Switzerland about claiming an account (In re Holocaust Victim Assets
Litigation) . We had never made any claims and could not understand how
they found us. This prompted us to go to the Polish Embassy to find out
about my grandfather.

I hope you can help me find any family that survived the Holocaust or their
descendants. Thank You and Shalom.

Israeli voter rolls #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

The last few times that Israel has had elections, the Central Elections Committee
posted a version of the voter rolls on line so that people could find where to vote. I
found a few people that way, because the addresses are included in the
information. The problem was that in order to do the lookup, you need the
surname and national identity number.

In any case, this is to inform you that this year this service will not be available.
(Too bad - there were a couple of people I was sure I would finally locate.) There
is however a phone service (including in several foreign languages) which
purports to do the same thing. Of course, it must be used judiciously, because if
they realize that you are using it for something other than finding out where to vote,
you might not get any help. (I will try that myself later today.)

Hi, Malcolm.

I'm a lifelong Chicagoan. The first street name in your email is probably
Claremont -- a small side street in Chicago. You have read the other street
names correctly. (By the way, North Avenue runs east and west -- which I have
always thought as strange.)

Re: the name Baines. #latvia

Anne Brest Photography - (LAPEDUS fam.) <angi@...>
 

Hallo

My ex Father in law's name was Baines Naphtali BREST. the Hebrew spelling
was Bet, Nun, Vav, Sin (shin). sometimes I heard my Mother in law talking
about him as "Bainash" but mostly Baines with the "s" sound. He came from
Bauska, Latvia and I never knew the origin of his name. I see now that it
is Binyamim. Thank you Prof. Jerry Esterson.

Tarnow #general

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Tarnow researchers,

I have noticed that there is no Tarnow webpage in JewishGen ShtetLinks
and no group who looks after Tarnow researchers. If I am wrong I will
be delighted to be corrected!

I coordinate a group (KRRG) researching shtetlach within an approximate
30 miles radius of Kolbuszowa (Rzeszow Province) which included the
following Administrative Districts:Kolbuszowa, Lancut, Mielec, Nisko,
Pilzno, Ropczyce, Rzeszow, Strzyzow, Tarnobrzeg and I often receive
e-mails asking if we include Tarnow. My reply, of course, is that we do
not.

There is a need for a Tarnow Group which would, preferably, include not
only the town of Tarnow but the shtetlach in the Tarnow Administrative
District. I would also like to see a _ShtetLinks_ Tarnow webpage.

Tarnow was an important city in the area of interest to KRRG and many
families >from our shtetlach relocated there for business reasons. I am
hoping someone comes forward to create and coordinate a Tarnow Group.
Since I have already been involved with two such groups I am willing to
spend some time showing someone "the ropes" on how to go about starting
a group and getting a website up (in JG ShtetLinks).
