Is Your Town near Michow (Lublin)? #poland

RobinnM@...
 

Dear JRI-Poland readers:

The Jewish Records Indexing-Poland group has indexed the 1856- 1901 Jewish vital records for Michow Lubartowska…

Michow Lubartowska is located at 5131 2218. Some interesting towns within 20 miles of Michow include:

Lysobyki 5.9 miles NNW
Kamionka 7.3 miles ESE
Firlej 9.6 miles ENE
Kurow 10.2 miles SSW
Kock 10.3 miles NE
Annopol 10.7 miles NNE
Wawolnica 12.2 miles NW
Piaski 12.8 miles ENE
Konskowola 12.9 miles SW
Wysokie 14.1 miles SSE
Lubartow 14.7 miles ESE
Bobrowniki 16.1 miles WNW
Czemierniki 17.8 miles NE


If you are interested in any of the above towns, you may also be interested in the Michow Lubartowska indexing project! Stan Zeidenberg, the Michow townleader has worked hard to get this close to the goal! Thanks Stan! We're hoping that you will now take an interest in Michow -- a place where there are very few researchers, and help us raise the final $150 needed to fully fund this project.

Here's how to make a contribution:

Donations can be accepted by check, VISA or MasterCard! Please earmark your donation for the "Michow Lubartowska PSA Project". Mail checks to:

Remembering those lost in the Holocaust #galicia

The fast of the tenth of Teveth (next Sunday) was designated by the Chief
Rabbinate of Israel in the early days of the State as the day of general kaddish for
Holocaust victims. In practice, the custom is that people who do not know exactly
when their family members were killed [commemorate them on this date].

Hi.
I've just uncovered a new branch of my family and I've learned that a
distant cousin is possibly serving as an MP in the US Army. I don't have a
clue where she's stationed. Would anyone happen to know how to go about
trying to find her?

Thanks for your help.
Wishing all Genners a fruitful search in the New Year!

Mimi Katz, Chicago
Like many other inquiries, this one is easily answered by making a Google
search on appropriate terms. In this case, for example, I searched for the
terms 'us army' and 'adjutant general', which rapidly led me to the website
of The Adjutant General: https://www-perscom.army.mil/tagd/

If you start there, I have no doubt that you will be able to find your
relative.

I commend to users of this forum, and of others like it, the use of Google
or similar search engines.

First Names Anweesa and Kolya #general

Rusty Wilson <rusty.wilson@...>
 

I recently posted 2 photographs on Viewmate (they've since been removed) and
several people kindly provided translations of the text on the back. The
first was in Yiddish >from about 1927, showed a mother and 3 daughters and
apparently said "To my dear and beloved daughter Anweesa". I assume the
writer was Anweesa. I've never heard of a name resembling Anweesa - has
anyone else? Is there a variant that would make sense?

The second was in Russian, was >from the same time period, showed a mother
and daughter and said "For good memory >from Kolya and Frida..." One
translator pointed out that Kolya was likely Nikolai, but the photo clearly
shows a mother and daughter. Could Kolya be a girl's name?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Manes SEIDMAN - Lebl WISCHNE #general

Hi List:
Some time when you least expect it you stumble on a record that you gave up
and then you have to redirect your search. I found the record of my
Grandfathers arrival in the US!!! I also found that he was going to a brother
in law named Manes SIDMANN. The address given was298 Church St. New York. I
know it was my Grandfather because he was >from Russia, Mezrich (today Poland,
Miedzyrzec Podlski), he was a brush maker, his wife was Bruche and her maiden
name was ZAJDMAN. I know that the New York Zajdmans changed their name to
SIDMANN (a previous enquiry).Are there any descendent of Manes SIDMANN in the
New York area?
