Info re Henry Edelman #lithuania

Hensal <hensal@...>
 

My thanks to Andy Cassel for helping me join the Keidan Group.
Unfortunately my late father never told me much about his life back in
Keidan so I am now trying to trace back his ancestry.
Our family history is as follows:
Father: Known as Woolf(Zev)Edelman born 24 May 1902, Keidan son of Henry
Edelman and Minne Merkel.Emigrated to South Africa 1929, my mother Sonia
Michle Esrachowitz only followed him in 1931, they settled in Johannesburg
and I was born 27 July 1932.
My father's 2 sisters followed to South Africa, Chaia and Chava. Chaia went
from Keidan 1919 to Palestine, married and went to Australia and later to
South Africa.My dad recorded my name as Hennech Edelman on my birth
certificate and only after finishing school he informed me that my name
should be Henry Jacob, so I had my name changed.
I would mention that there was a large Keidan Society group in Johannesburg
between 1940 -1980 but unfortunately I have no info about the group.
I married Sally Rabinowitz May 1958 and we have 3 children,one living in
South Africa and two in New Zealand.I qualified as a pharmacist 1956, worked
as Production Manager/Managing Director of a Danish Pharmaceutical Plant in
South Africa called Novo Nordisk.
My daughter married a Kiwi and left for New Zealand, she has 3 children. My
youngest son and wife also emigrated to NZ and they have 2 children.When I
retired fron Novo after 32 years we also emigrated to NZ in June 1994.
This is just a brief picture about my family and I look forward to gaining
more info in the future.
Of my late father's family only he and his 2 sisters survived to the best of
my knowledge, I think he came >from a family of 6 or 7 children.
If I can help with further info I can be contacted by e-mail at:
hensal@clear.net.nz
Thanks,
Henry Edelman

Who do I contact to obtain the full record - NARA, INS, or NY County

LANDAU Descendants #general

INGRID rockberger <ingridr@...>
 

Dear Genners

I am sending this on behalf of a lady who does not have internet access.

She is searching for descendants of her father's brothers, and has the
following 'sketchy' information:

Her father was Yehoshua LANDAU, one of nine brothers. The parents were
Baruch and Mara. All she knows is that the family came >from Silesia.
Her father went to the UK, as did two more brothers: Marks and Aron. Two
were in the US - Avraham and Solly.

She is searching for the possible descendants of the other four brothers.

If anyone has any information about this family, please reply to me and I
will pass on the information.

TIA

Locating U. S. counties #general

C&V <proprius@...>
 

Several genners have posted sites to locate the names of
counties and the cities therein.
Just be aware that a county in the United States may have
changed its name or the area that it encompasses. Depending on the time
you are researching, the present county seat may not be where you will
find the historical records you want, nor the county have the same name
as it did when your relative lived there.

KUJAWSKI Ancestors from Lodz & Poznan #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

My paternal grandfather, Simon Woolf (Szija Wolf KUJAWSKI) was born in
Lodz, Poland in 1878. He left Poland for England in the mid 1890's where he
eventually settled (in Birmingham, in the county of Warwickshire). Last
year, a professional researcher in Lodz managed to locate the vital records
for my KUJAWSKI ancestors in the Lodz state archives. (I'd tried to trace
them myself for 4 years, but without avail!). The birth indices revealed
the names of Simon's parents - Icek and Raca (nee MICHALSON), also the name
of two sisters, Kaza Jenway and Trajdla Ryfka KUJAWSKA, also born in Lodz.

Based on the birth dates of my grandfather (1878) and that of his older
sister Kaza (1874) I'm assuming that my great grandparents were married in
1873 or a few years earlier.

My researcher in Lodz informed me that vital records prior to a certain
date (don't recall what date, exactly) are held at the state archive in
Poznan (formerly known as Posen, when it was part of the Prussian Empire -
before being returned to Poland). In July 2003 I wrote to the State
Archive in Poznan (in English but using the correct format and language)
requesting copies of my great grandparents' marriage record. Because I
didn't know the exact date of marriage, I specified "between 1870 and 1874
(probably 1873 or 1874). I have not yet received a response.

Questions:

Is the state archive in Poznan "ignoring" my letter because it couldn't
find my great grandparents' marriage record? (As stated above, I was unable
to give a precise date of marriage.)

Should I write to the State Archive in Warsaw?

And if you're considering throwing those old kippot away, please don't do
that either. A fellow in my synagogue collects them, to be sent to the
Belarus Jewish communities for continued use. I'm sure this can be done
from other temples, but you're free to send them to me.
