Stettin is the German name of the Polish city of Szczecin, but it was not
"renamed": this city was historically German (Pomeranian actually), and
was transferred to Poland at the end of WWII. See e.g. the thread
"Questions >from a really naive beginner" >from June 2003:
<http://tinyurl.com/b2795>
According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stettin Stettin was
founded by Warcislaw IV (called New Szczecin).

Only in 1720 were the Swedes forced to cede the city to the Elector of
Brandeburg.

Until the 1630s Stettin was the capital of the Duchy of Pomerania which was
ruled by the Slavonic Griffin dynasty which was of Slavic origins.

This is abstracted >from Wikipedia and I cannot vouch for its content.

http://www.factmonster.com/ce6/world/A0860467.html also contains a history
of Pommerania. Like all European history with changing borders and
frontiers, it is rather difficult to be certain about these things, and, of
course, wars have started over these sorts of arguments, and so it rather
depends who is saying it.

I am not a historian and I am not an expert on this.

Almost as soon as I posted, three people contacted me
and gave me the information I needed to locate the
pertinent records. I have written to each of them
privately to thank them, but wanted to acknowledge the
help promptly so that others who might be inclined to
respond would know I've found what I needed.

One person reminded me that this info is in the FAQ
and that reading it was a good idea. I agree -- and
it is something I should have done. I have read it
before, but not recently, and as you all know, as
different pieces of our family puzzles are unearthed,
our needs sometime change and we don't always remember
to revisit something we may have looked at a while
ago.

In any case, I hope someday that I can help someone
with the same courtesy, accuracy and promptness that I
was shown just now. I want to acknowledge publicly
that not just for this question, but for the few
others I have posted, that I have had someone
volunteer to help me every time. What a great
extended family this group is! :)

Good day to all of you.

My name is David J. Buch. My ancestors came >from Ciechanow,
specifically Srul Buch, whose two sons (Joseph Hirsch and Elia Leizer)
moved to the nearby village of Raciaz. There were many Buchs remaining

If anyone has information on the Buch family in Ciechanow, I would
appreciate an E-mail message. (david.buch@uni.edu)

I have a family tree for the Buchs >from the period they lived in
Raciaz, and I also have excellent contacts with family in Israel and

A few years ago I found in a dusty text book at Jews
College in London, a short reference to some
instructions given by Oliver Cromwell in and around 1650,
for two Jewish East End clerks to go to the garrison
town of Cork to investigate corruption in the
accounts of the food stores there. I was unable to
discover what they found or what they reported back
to him.
Were they the first to settle in the South of Ireland?

searching for my family: Gombin - Poland , Sprenglingen - Germany #general

Kruveet k <kruveet@...>
 

I just joined JewishJen. I just started my genealogy research and I
could use any help I get.

I am searching for information about the FINKELSTEIN family that moved
from Gombin (Gabin in polish) Poland to Sprenglingen, Germany at the
end of 1800 and lived there till the Second World War.
The head of the family was called Abraham FINKELSTEIN and his wife was
Sara. I know he was in his 60-70 during the Second World War but she
died before it so she might be buried in Sprenglingen. Their son
Yehuda Dov (Bernhart) was married to Chaya (Anna) ROSENTHAL from
Frankfurt.

If anyone can tell me if there are lists or where can I find
information or documents: birth, burial, marriage (Yehuda Dov
/Bernhart and Chaya /Anna probably were married there). Are there any
Jewish documents of the congregations that were saved like Ktoobot?

Thank you all
Chagit Finkelstein

Dear Fellow Genners:

Can anyone tell me how to find 5632 Clark Street, Montreal, QC in the 1911
Canadian Census? I will appreciate any help.
http://www.genealogy.gc.ca/10/1011_e.html gives research tips how to
identify the ward in which a person lived by looking at the street index at
the front of published city directories (see
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/canadiandirectories/index-e.html)

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal says in their website that they
can't give help in looking up records but suggests you contact the Quebec
Family History Society http://www.cam.org/%7Eqfhs/index.html.

Their website says that they can do research for you, and it would be
relatively for them to consult maps or inform you what district your address
was in in 1911.

If you want to know how I can answer such an enquiry >from the UK, I worked

Council, I was a Census Enumerator in London in 1981, and I have looked up

Having said that I am not volunteering to do research for JewishGenners, not
because I want to be unhelpful as I have to earn a living.

Tombstone Translation Wanted #general

Ralph Baer <baer@...>
 

I am interested in a translation of the Hebrew portion of the inscription on
the tombstone that I have posted on Viewmate
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html as VM6564. The direct link is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6564. The stone
marks the grave of Anschel (Anselm) MAIER (MAYER, MEYER) in the Wiesloch,
Baden cemetery. Anschel was born on 1 October 1779, in Nussloch according to
Berthold Rosenthal (collection at the Leo Baeck Institute). He died on 12
June 1854 in Rohrbach bei Heidelberg (now Heidelberg-Rohrbach).

My primary interest is in finding out what it says about Anschel's father
because I have some question, due to the birth in Nussloch, if he is really
related to me and the other MAYERs and MAIERs in Rohrbach despite the fact
that Rosenthal does fit him into my family. Supposedly, his father was Moses
MAIER (20 October 1752 Rohrbach - 28 April 1824 Rohrbach), son of Mayer
Moses (about 1730 Rohrbach - 13 August 1807 Rohrbach). The latter was my
4th-great grandfather.
