I did research on JCRS many years ago. The 'Jewish Consumptive Relief
Society Home' was known later as the 'American Medical Center'. The children
of many of those at the JCRS entered the 'Jewish Sheltering Home'.

Records might be found at the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society.

Searching DUCHIN (Duchru?) from Kiev, Ukraine #general

Steven Prager <prager@...>
 

I am searching for information about the Duchin Family.

My GGGP's Wolf and Yutta DUCHIN were >from around the Kiev region. They
apparently had many children. Their daughter Sheina Raisel DUCHIN
(1870-1909) married Joseph Warschawsky. She emigrated to the US 1905 and
died in childbirth in 1909.

Sheina was reported to be the famous band-leader Eddy DUCHIN's aunt.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Researching WERBNER , KRANZ,PARNES in Lwow, Stojanow, Rudenko Lackie #galicia

werbner <werbner@...>
 

Szabse WERBNER and Chaje Lea PARNES married in Lwow in 1910. Szabse's
parents were Josef KRANZ and Czarna WERBNER. Chaje's parents were
Samuel KRANZ and Perla PARNES. . Szabse was born in Rudenko Lackie in
1887, Chaje Lea in Stojanow. in 1888.

Josef Werbner, we believe, died in 1910, before Szabse was born.

Szabse and Chaje moved to Vienna and were known there as Schimon and
Klara WERBNER . They were divorced in 1919 or 1920 . Klara perished in
the Holocaust.

Does anyone know anything about Szabse's parents, brothers and sisters
(we believe he was the youngest in a large family), about Chaje's
parents, and any possible connection between Szabse's father Josef
KRANZ and Chaje's father Samuel KRANZ?

All information will be greatly appreciated.

Fw: Sedziscow, Galizien #galicia

Willy Zalmon <wizal@...>
 

Dear Israel Pickholtz,

The phonetically closest Polish word for Sedziscow would be Sedziszow,
disregarding diacritical additions for both the letters e and o.

My search for Sedziszow in Polish sources yields information on 2 towns in
Poland, both in the pre-WW1 Galicia or Galizien.

As JewishGen does not accept attachments I shall email you some additional
information regarding both towns, the one, in Swietokrzyski District,
South-East Poland, having presently (1999) 7 236 inhabitants and the second,
"Sedziszow Malopolski", in the Podkarpacki District, presently (1999) 7 200
inhabitants. This district is situated North-West to the previous one.

Should you need further information a f t e r searching the various data
bases, please contact me directly, (we even work with the same ISP).

Best regards,
Willy Zalmon
wizal@actcom.co.il


A Vienna record lists "Sedziscow, Galizien" as a birthplace for a woman
whom we definitely expected to have been born in East Galicia.

My first instinct was that this is a German spelling of Zydachow (4923
2408). ShtetlSeker gives only one result in Ukraine - Chocieszow (5143
2448) - but many in Poland, none of which means anything to me.

Is there someplace obvious that a German speaker would have been
referring to?

"New" shtetl Polkotichi in Grodno Guberniya #belarus

DHRing@...
 

The shtetl of Polkotichi (Polkotycze in the Polish spelling), in Grodno
guberniya just northwest of Pinsk near Motol and Porechye, has been added to the
list of shtetls in Belarus. While it is shown on the Belarus SIG page as
being in the Brest district, I believe it was probably in the Kobrin district
instead.

My POLKOTITSKY family, known as BAKER and BREGMAN in the USA, emigrated >from
this shtetl as well as >from Pinsk. There are many spelling variants on the
family name, including POKOTITSKY and POLHOTITSKY.

The immigrants I've identified include: Velvel and Ita POLKOTYCKI and their
children Leib (aka Louis BREGMAN), Sore (married DECKELBAUM and then LEVINE),
Judel/Julius, and Abram. Another son Ela was living in Pinsk as of 1922.
My great-grandfather, a contemporary of Velvel's, was a different Abram
POKOTITSKY (son of Ela). In the US he was known as Abraham BAKER.

There are several POLKOTITSKY individuals mentioned in the Pinsk ghetto
database and Soviet commission records. Others seem to have immigrated to the UK
and then probably changed the surname.

I welcome hearing >from any of you who have connections to this shtetl or
surname.

Here's a link to a modern map showing the location of the shtetl:
