Finding velvl/wolf libowski, also known as luboff #general

Rochelle Kaplan <rochelle@...>
 

I have been told by my husband's now deceased relative that my husband's
grandfather, Harry Lubov, formerly known as Hirsch Libowski, had a
sibling named Velvl Luboff who lived in NYC and had 8 children, but the
family lost touch with Velvl. On Hirsch Libowski's 1904 ship manifest,
he writes that he was going to see his brother Wolf Libowski, at 271
Madison St. Hirsch/Harry moved to CT. Another sibling, Beryl or Barnett
also moved to CT.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to locate Velvl or Wolf
Libowski/Luboff. I have tried NY Genealogical and Biographical Soc.
Links, Ancestry, Heritage Quest, Proquest, Stephen Morse NYC sites, NYC
1905 directories. I recently tried other variants of Libowski and Lubov.

I wonder if anyone out there has other suggestions- possible name
variants. What other names might Velvl or Wolf have adopted other than
Benjamin?

Sincerely,

Help identifying Polish city on Russian-German border during WWI #general

Gary Katz <katzgary@...>
 

I recently located the following April 7, 1921 newspaper article
related to my KATZ family in the Bismarck (North Dakota) Tribune. I'd
greatly appreciate if anyone can help me identify the Polish city
that is described.

_Family Wiped Out in World War, says niece_
Joe Katz after Six Years Without Letters Receive News of Deaths

Joe Katz received word today >from a niece in Poland that three
brothers and two sisters were killed during the World war.
Mr. Katz has been trying for six years to get in communications with
some of his relatives in Poland, but today message of death was the
first once which he has received.
His niece said that she did not know whether they had been shot or
starved to death.

They lived about 150 miles west of Warsaw in a small city in which
the Russians and Germans clashed 16 times during the war.
The writer declared that the brothers and sisters had been driven out
of their homes and everything which they had had been taken. They
were all well to do.


In the mid-1800s, the family had lived in the Vilna area.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

All Rav means is that it was a form of respect. Almost like "Mister" or
"Sir" but with more reverence. It is quite common on tombstones.

geography question #poland

barryholly@...
 

I am researching my GGGrandfather- Samuel Revelsky- his father, Eleazer,
and we believe, a brother Abraham. Eleazer died prior to 1873, when
Samuel was married. On his marriage record and a subsequent census,
Samuel states that his place of origin is Poland, Russia. Is there a
town by the name of Poland in Russia? or would he have been referring
to the area which was in Poland and was annexed by Russia? apx. 1845-1875.

We assume his birth would have been apx. 1845-1851. He emigrated to
England prior to 1871. I would appreciate any historical/geographical
help! &/or advice on where to look for further information.

Thanks in advance,

JRI-Poland comes to the New York Conference #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

There will be several lectures and events at the 26th Annual IAJGS
Conference that will be of interest to the friends of JRI-Poland.

On Sunday there will be a JRI-Poland Volunteers meeting which will be
at 9:30 AM in the Soho Room on the 7th Floor. This meeting is for all
Archive Coordinators, Project Coordinators, Town leaders and Shtetl
CO-OP leaders.

Then we will be kicked out of the room so they can set up for the
JRI-Poland luncheon which will be held at 12 Noon in the Soho Complex.
There are already over 100 people who have signed up for the luncheon.
The guest speakers will be Yale Reisner and Ania Przybyszewska Drozd of
the Ronald S.Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project (at the Jewish Historical
Institute, Warsaw). Yale and Ania provide a unique resource for
genealogists seeking information in Warsaw, Jewish visitors to Poland of
all backgrounds and Poles seeking their Jewish roots.

Monday will be a jam packed day at the conference starting with
JRI-Poland Executive Director, Stanley Diamond, who will be speaking at
8 AM on What's New in JRI-Poland. Stanley's lecture will be followed at
9:30 with a lecture given by JRI-Poland Board Members, Mark Halpern and
Judy Baston, who will be talking on how to Make the Most of Your Polish
Research - A Tour of the JRI-Poland Website.

Then at 1:45 on Monday, JRI-Poland Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator for the
towns of Golymin, Karniewo, Krzynowloga Mala and Krzynowloga Wielka,
Marty Meyers, will be speaking on "Uncovering Surnames in Patrynomic
and Early JRI-Poland Records"

To end the Monday JRI-Poland festival, board member Robinn Magid will
be presenting a Computer Workshop at 4:45 on how to search the JRI-Poland
database.

On Tuesday, at 4:45 PM, JRI-Poland Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator for Chorzow,
Czekanow, Gliwice, Olesno, Rybnik will be speaking on "Vital Records in
Prussian Poland: Getting the Whole Picture."

On Wednesday, at 1:45 PM in Salon 4, JRI-Poland Board Member, Mark
Halpern will be speaking on "Strategies for Galician Research and More:
Using the JRI-Poland Database." Actually, if you are researching your
Galicia and/orPoland ancestors it is best to stay in Salon 4 all day
Wednesday since there are several other lecturers in that room that will
be helpful to your research.

There are many other lectures that are of interest to Polish researchers
and I am sure that the conference will be an excellent learning experience
for all. The full schedule is posted on the conference website. The only
thing I suggest is that you get plenty of sleep beforehand.

Have you registered yet for the 26th Annual IAJGS Conference in New
York? Well, what are you waiting for? There are only 7 Days to the Early
Registration Deadline of May 15. Go to http://www.jgsny2006.org
