I am the grandson of Eliasz KEJZMAN (aka Eli) of Brzeziny who perished
in the Holocaust. (The family members who came to Canada pre-WWII
became KASMAN.) Was anyone familiar with him or his family? I am the
son of the late Morris KASMAN who died in Toronto in 1990. He was one
of the 7 children of Eliasz KEJZMAN.

Shana tova!

Re: Carbuncle can be cause of death #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Although an on-line dictionary might list anthax as one meaning of
'carbuncle', I doubt very much that this is the case here. Infected raw
meat is not kosher, so I would say it unlikely that the ancestor died of
anthrax. Generally, to be kosher meat must be cooked to death, killing any
potential pathogen.

Other that that kind of 'boil', a carbuncle is any thing similar to a boil
and unlikely fatal.

The best guess that I have seen would be a misspelled tubercle.
Tuberculosis was common and often fatal.

Sally Bruckheimer

"There is an on-line 1913 Webster's Dictionary which contains a detailed
description of a carbuncle and which states that it is frequently fatal.
It is also called anthrax. Researching anthrax in the same dictionary, we
find that this type of anthrax usually affects sheep, cattle, horses,
goats and swine and that it may infect humans, causing meningitis and
pneumonia with a high rate of death. It can be transmitted to humans via
infected raw meat, blood, or other fluids."

my answer is: The male first name Kadish is a Jewish middle age name.
Normal it was used when after a lot of girls , a boy coming and he was
able to said Kadish when his father die. Kadish mean the Jewish
mourner's prayer. In the fifty's was a minister in the Israel government
with the name Kadish Luz (1895 - 1972) and you can find this name beck in
a lot of streets in Israel.

Would any genealogy researcher who frequently visits any St.

buried in St. Paul, MN. Please check between the dates of 8/24/1922 and
8/30/1922, and if there are any other SMITH'S listed during that time
period, they also would be of great help to me.

NY City, NY Marriage Lookup (1915-1930) #general

Elynn Boss <bossgen@...>
 

I just found my great-great grandfather in the 1930 NY census. He
remarried after my great-great-grandmother died in 1915 to a lady named
Bessie. He would have married her sometime between 1915 and 1930
(probably closer to 1915). Would someone who has access to the NY
marriage index be willing to do a look-up for this marriage? Please
contact me for the details.

Thanks very much.

Re: Regenka (Riecnica) and Kycerka, Slovakia #general

NFatouros@...
 

I was stumped by Daniel Vangheluwe's first inquiry (Sept. 25, 03), which
asked about "Rengenka, Russia." But his inquiry of Sept. 27. 03) which
asked about "Kycerka" and "Recienica" renewed my effort to help him, even
though I don't possess a Czech dictionary and I can't read Czech, except
for a word or two here and there. (When before WW II, a pretty Czech girl
came to stay with my family as our live-in maid, she taught me to count in
Czech and some songs in Czech as well as a peasant dance but, although I
still remember how to count in Czech to and including ten, and how to do a
little dance) I don't recall her explaining what the songs meant, but if
she did I have forgotten what she told me.)

There are two places in Slovakia, seemingly nearby each other, called
"Kycerka." According to the "Gazeteer/Encyclopedia of Slovakia at:

http://www.iarelative.com/k.htm

The map coordinates of one Kycerka are 49'23/18'36 and of the second,
49'23/19'04

Another website turned up the existence of a hotel which is located in
Kycerka, Welke Karlovice. (I imagine "Welke" means the same as it means,
albeit with different spellings, in other Slavic languages, "big"
or "greater" as opposed to the word "maly" or the variant spellings of
that word which means "small.")

In my "google" search, for "Kycerk" and "Riecnica" I found a couple of
other websites which printed in Czech which seemed to have to do a Czech
council or legislature but I didn't have the patience to figure out where
mention of these places were located in the texts.

My old Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer has no entry for Kycerka, or for
Riecnica. nor does my copy of the older edition of "Where We Once
Walked, " and I couldn't find them in Chester G. Cohen's "Shtetl Finder
Gazetteer"

I think Mr. Vangheluwe's efforts to figure out the meanings of Rienica,
"Regenka", and Kyserka by thinking of the German "Regen" were admirable,
even though I also think his guesses were far off.

I am sure some other Jewishgenner will soon correct what I have found
if I have been mistaken, and I hope that other Jewishgenners will be more
informative.

Re: "Slobodka Kovna" #general

On Sept.28, 03 , Eli Melitz (melitz@...) asked for more
details about Slobodka, a suburb of Kovno, where his father Nachum Meltzan
was born.

There are many online sources for infomation about Slobodka, Kovno.
First I suggest Mr. Metlitz go to www.jewishencyclopedia.com, and there
type in "Kovno" as his search term. He will then find a lot of articles
about Slobdoka and the people who were born and lived there. If Mr. Melitz
has access to an Encyclopedia Judaica, that source may also interest him.

At:

http://econc10.bu.edu/economic_systems/natidentity/fsu/baltics/Lithuania/kovno_ghetto.htm

there is an article by Cory Silken about the Kovno Ghetto.

Another article can be read at:

spreadsheet had been translated and I had to abandon that attempt. But I
then plopped that same blank download icon on my clever shareware gadget

teachers and shochets, only some of whom had to do with Slobodka. This
list was taken >from a book on South African Jewry. So I don't know
whether Mr. Melitz will want to download it too. Perhaps
his machine can open the spreadsheet and he can read all the names.

Mr. Melitz should be sure to copy both lines of each of the above URLs
before trying to get to them.

Several more URLs turned up during my online search on Mr.Melitz's
behalf, but I trust that he will find them himself if he uses
www.google.com and "Sloboda Kovno" as his search terms.

Also Mr. Melitz should not fail to go to Jewishgen's main page, click on
