Seeking descendants of Louis and Hannah KORN #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

My husband's great-grandparents, Louis and Hannah KORN, immigrated >from in
or near Vienna (Wien), Austria to Manhattan in approximately 1873. He died
in 1887 and she died in 1907. They had a son Peter and 6 daughters,
Elizabeth, Anne, Ida, and Rosie, born approximately 1866 to 1873 in Austria,
and Polly and Mamie, born approximately 1876 and 1878 in Manhattan.
Elizabeth, who was known as Betsy, later Lizzie, married a man with the
surname WALTERS. She was widowed at a young age and may have lived in the
Bronx and taken in roomers. Since she lived for a time with her brother's
family, I doubt that she had children. I do not know the other sisters'
married names or even whether they married. I have information on the son
Peter and his descendants (most of whom I know or have known personally).
If anyone has any information about the daughters and their families or
about Louis and Hannah's siblings and/or parents, please contact me
privately.

Locating Sefer: "Minchah Ketannah" by R. Yechiel HaLevi ROSENFELD #general

roe kard
 

I am trying to locate a copy of a book: "She'elot U'Teshuvot: Minchah
Ketannah" written by R. Jechiel HaLevi ROSENFELD, Rabbi in "Winniki"
published in Lemberg in 1892. I know a copy existed in the 60's,
possibly in Hechal Shlomo in Jerusalem as my parents Z"L copied the
introduction, which finally, after 30 years of looking for it, I have
found while doing a very intense search through their remaining papers.
Thank you.

B'shalom,
Karen Rosenfeld Roekard

I'd like to thank all those who have replied with help to my
request. I now have the information I need to proceed with my
search.

I'd also like to say a thank you to all who have posted on this
topic (the 1890 Police Census of NYC) in the past. One of the
first things I did before I wrote my query was to search the
archives. They were a tremendous help.

The archives are a wonderful resource and have helped me on
several occasions with my search.

Thank you again to everyone. This is a great list filled with
kind and helpful people.

Stepan, Kolki, Olyka #ukraine

Debbie Adelstein-Posner asked: >>Does anyone know where I might view
photographs of Stepan, Kolki and Olyka?<<
Hi Debbie, there are websites for Kolki, (compiled by Andrew Blumberg in
January 2005) and Stepan (compiled by Daniel Shimshak). There are photos on
both sites. I don't see anything about Olyka.
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kolki. For some reason, I could not get
to Stepan that way. I went to JewishGen home page, clicked on Projects and
then Shtetlinks and found Stepan.
If you have any info about either shtetl, I'm sure it could be added to
the page. Hope all is well.

Hello,
I have found a number of relatives through the Kiev Duma lists, along

Would anyone have a street atlas/map of pre-revolutionary Kiev (or link
to same)? I have been unable to find the streets on modern-day maps of Kiev.
