WYGODA/MELNICK from Pultusk #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am helping someone trace their family in Pultusk – Poland –
perhaps you can assist.

Chaim Shmuel WYGODA was married to Shayna (perhaps Sheindel?)
MELNICK.

Children known:-

Hela, Beila Leah, Peska, Gedalia, Abraham and Moshe Nathan (born 1924).

Chaim and Beila Leah were murdered in the Shoah. What happened to Shayna
I do not know. Hela and Peska eventually went to Israel and the 3 sons
went to Canada.

The person I am helping is the son of Moshe Nathan who has now come
to live in Israel. He knows nothing about either his WYGODA or MELNICK
families other than his cousins in Canada.

It is known that Chaim WYGODA had several siblings but they were not
born in Pultusk – perhaps Rozan which is near Pultusk? Shayna was
definitely >from Pultusk and all their children were born there.
Like Chaim, Shayna must have had siblings but who were they?

If anyone has knowledge of the above family, or similiar children’s names
appear in your WYGODA / VIGODA / MELNICK tree please contact me.

Thank you all.

Buchsbaum/Buxbaum from Nowy Sacs (Galicia, Poland) and surrounding areas #galicia

Maly & Ofer Cohen
 

Dear friends,

Shalom. In the last months we had been collecting information, aiming to
compile a large family tree for the BUCHSBAUMS families of Nowy Sacs and
the surrounding areas. We are descendents of Moshe [Segal, HaLevi]
Buchsbaum (1824 - c. 1900) who named also Moishe Goldes (after his
mother Golde). Moshe, probably was the son of "Nathan the Dayan". We ask
for additional information on the followings:

A. Families:
Buchsbaums >from Nowy Sacs (and abroad), that are descendants of "Nathan
the Dayan (Jewish jidge)" and Golde (or of Yitzchak the Dayan, probably
Nathan's father).
Buchsbaums >from Nowy Sacs (and abroad), that are descendants of he
followings of NS: Aaron-Efrayim (b. before 1809), Yisrael (b. 1801),
Yakov, Shimeon (b. 1815), Zelek (b. 1819).

B. Jewish Judges (Dayanim):
"Nathan the Dayan" (Segal, HaLEvi, Buchsbaum - or others) of Nowy Sacz,
in the years 1820-1860 (age of the "DIVREI CHAYIM" - the first ADMOR of
Tzanz).
A Jewish judge, named Yitzchak >from Nowy Sacs, in about 1800-1850.


We have detailed family tree for the descendants of "Moishe Goldes".
Most of the branches of Moishe Goldes' children had been located. Our
tree includes data for: Dov-Ber, Yitzchak (Krakow), Yerachmiel, Tuvia,
Abraham, Nathan-Mordechai (Limanova), Schifra. If someone has a family
tradition of being his descendant, PLEASE CONTACT.

We will be grateful to ANY PIECE OF INFORMATION for the general subject.

Best wishes and thanks in advance,


Chaya Cohen - Petach Tikva, Israel.
Ofer Cohen - Jerusalem, Israel.

I would like to know the condition of the Jewish Cemetary in Motol and /or
Ivanovo (Yanov). Both are small shtetls in Belarus, west of Pinsk. Can you
suggest how I might obtain this information?

Thank you.

Let's not generalize about the "evil' Gentales. Discussion was about German

Re: Witnesses Can Be Very Important!! #general

Nachum Tuchman
 

Hi,

I can't claim a great an achievement as Helene's amazing story.
However, my paternal GF's petition for citizenship, US, in 1920 had as
his witnesses, 1) his brother-in-law, my GM's sister's husband, who is
known to the family 2) a Harry ASPIS. All my parent's knew about
Harry was that he was a good friend of my GF. I later found out,
through my GM's birth record that her mother's maiden name was ASPIS.=20
I haven't yet found a connection between Harry and my grandparents,
nor have I found any descendants of Harry, but I imagine that he was
related to my GM, somehow.

I ordered 13 records >from Busko-Zdroj, then Kielce Gubernia. On all
of the records that were not for my GM or her siblings, her father, my
GGF, was a witness. Apparantly, one of his jobs, as a town gabai, was
town witness. Other than pride in his job, which I only learned from
the records, I was able to track the age listed on all 13 records to
see that he aged chronologically with the records. I think that I can
safely assume that his age listed, and the year of birth calculated
from his age, is correct.

1902 New York City directory Make sense of this please #general

Nachum Tuchman
 

I think that the point of the 1985 fire notice was that it indicates
that the Eldridge street address was a residence, and so would seem to
indicate that the good doctor indeed did live there, even though way
back in 1902, notwithstanding the fact that it is listed first in the
directory and doesn't have an 'h' preceding.

Please excuse my run on sentence. English may be my first language,
but I learned in the States. (Our British friends will certainly
understand).

Yes, it does look confusing. What might help would be to look at the
