Re: Help with Polish town name from Hebrew #poland

Jurek Hirschberg <jurek@...>
 

Avigdor,

There is a part of Warsaw called Pelcowizna. It name fits the Hebrew
letters that you have listed. See if your record could actually refer to
Warsaw or look for a village with a similar name in other parts of
Poland - unless anybody has a better idea.

Best regards,

Subject: [jri-pl] Help with Polish town name >from Hebrew


My research uncovered a Polish shtetl (in Lomza province in all
likelihood) unfamiliar to me and not found in the ShtetlSearch or
glossaries. I have no sure location to pin this to, so one guess is as
good as another.

The Hebrew name is spelled peh-lamed-tzadik-bet-yud-zayen-nun-heh
I tried pronouncing it as: /plotzbisna/ /palchebizne/ /platzvisna/
/pelechbizneh/ /palchebezna/ and others, but to no avail. Maybe someone
with Polish skills can decipher a close-sounding match to the Hebrew and
suggest a name of a real town in pre-War Poland that I seek?

I found Polesie Wojszynskie, but I don't believe that is close. Please

BERNSTEIN #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

I'm looking information concerning a BERNSTEIN family. The father was
Louis (Lewi) BERNSTEIN, born around 1890/1900, maybe in Poland. The
mother was Sadi (Sajda), maiden name unknown, born in Lublin (Poland).
They had five children : Daniel, Rachel, Dahl (b. 1930), a boy whose first
name is unknown, Sonia. Any information would be welcome.

Searching for SCHMUKLER #general

Shuman, Carl H
 

According to the Ellis Island record repository, my grandmother, Sophie
(Shprintze) SCHMUKLER, arrived in the United States in 1906 >from a town
called "Unrewia," Her father, Michel SCHMUKLER, arrived in the United
States in the United States in 1900 >from the town of "Brisk." Both settled
in Philadelphia. I was advised previously that "Brisk" was another name
for "Brest Litovsk." No one, however, has been able to trace the name
"Unrewia." Is there a village near Brest Litovsk that sounds like
"Unrewia" or is this more likely simply a case of the Ellis Island intake
official misunderstanding what my grandmother was saying? Also, I have not
been able to find any information >from the Ellis Island records on the
arrival of my greatgrandmother, Nechama SCHMUKLER, or on my grandmother
Sophie's siblings. Those who emigrated to the United States included her
brothers Morris SCHMUKLER (who apparently changed the spelling of his last
name to SMOOKLER), and Herschel SCMUKLER and her sisters Dora, Sarah, and
Rose. Apparently, the oldest brother, Abraham SCHMUKLER, stayed in Europe
and perished along with his wife and children during the Second World War.
Also, I am told that Herschel left a wife in Europe. Sophie married
Abraham PAUL and settled in Philadelphia. Herschel lived in Burlingon, New
Jersey with his sister Sarah and helped to raise her invalid child, Jakie.
Rose married and settled in Philadelphia and Dora settled in New York. I
am particularly interested in knowing if there is a way to find out what
happened to Abraham and would be pleased to find out more about birth and
marriage records for all of the SCHMUKLERS. I have tried all of the
conventional JewishGen searches that I know about to find out more birth
and marriage information about this side of my family but I have come up
empty. I believe that Nechama's maiden name may have been "BIRENBOIM" or
somthing very close to that. Any help/suggestions would be greatly
appreciated.

Thank you.

Dodel in Israel - Help needed #general

Robert Dodell <RADodell@...>
 

When I was in Israel for my Junior year of College, I looked up Dodel in
the phone books. Found in Tel Aviv and Haifa. My Hebrew was too poor to
connect with them. It appears almost everyone with the name "Dodel" came
from the same town (Toporov, in present day Ukraine). I am certain they
are related somehow.

If anyone would be so kind to call any of those wiht the name "Dodel" up in
Israel, I would love to make a connection. Perhaps their kids or grandkids
speak English and have email.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Stille Chupa ( Silent wedding ) #general

Gloria Lenon <glenon@...>
 

I am not sure if my grandparents had a stile chupa, but my grandfather was
hiding upstairs while he and my grandmother got married in Russia. He was
drafted into the army and was awol, planning to leave Russia. Which they
did with my grandfather dressed as a woman! But back to the wedding,
everyone was afraid to do anything festive as that may have brought the
police into the house and arrested my grandfather. Luckily they both made
it to Boston, Ma.
