Too many Mikolajow? #general

Alexander Sharon
 

Dear JewishGen Researchers,

I have been trying for some time to resolve the confusing issue of the
Eastern Galician towns known as Mikolajow within the JGFF database.

Currently, JGFF database lists 176 researchers who cover 276 entries for
town Mykolaiv in Ukraine.

What is so confusing about?

It appears that the majority of the researchers are exploring their roots in
the mighty Jewish town (close to 22,000 Jewish population) of Mykolayiv (ex
Nikolayev) of the Russian Empire, located close to Odessa and the Black Sea.

Somewhere within those entries are most probably lost researchers of the
three Eastern Galician towns Mikolajow.

I'd like you to identify those particular towns and if required, please
change your entries in JGFF database. Please contact JGFF Helpdesk for
assistance.

1.
Town Mikolajow, district Zydaczow, Stanislawow Province, at 4931 2359. Town
is listed in WOWW as Mykolaiv (Lwow area) with 498 (1921 census) Jewish
population. Latest available data for town Jewish population is 559 (1931
census, re: Pinkas Hakehilot, Poland, vol.II).
Town is located approx. halfway between towns Stryy and Lviv on the Dniester
River. There is not known Yzkor Book for this shtetl.
Current town name: Mykolayiv. I have already added this town to JGFF
database as:
"Mykolayiv, (on Dniester)", on the JGFF researcher's request.

2.
Village Mikolajow, district Bobrka, Lwow Province, at 4946 2421. Town is not
listed WOWW gazetteer and in JGFF database. Pinkas Hakehilot identifies 315
Jews in this locality (out of 938 total population). 1929 Poland Business
Directory lists numerous Jewish business owners.
There is no known Yzkor Book for shtetl.
Current town name is: Nikolyev.
If you would like to change your entry in JGFF database, please contact JGFF
Helpdesk, it will be entered to the system as: Nikolayev, (near Bobrka)

3.
Village Mikolajow, district Radziechow, Tarnopol Province, at 5021 2459.
Town is not listed in WOWW but is listed in the translated Yzkor Book for
Radziechow.
Number of Jewish residents - 50 (1933). Yzkor Book lists Holocausts victims
names and there are Jewish surnames shown in the 1929 Poland Business
Directory.
Current town name is: Mikolayiv.

To summarize:

Mykolayiv at 4658 3200 [city near Odesa)
Mykolaiv at 4931 2359, town near Zhidachov, enter as: Mykolayiv, (on
Dniester),
Nikolayev at 4946 2421, will be identified in JGFF as: Nikolayev, (near
Bobrka)
Mikolayiv at 5021 2459, will be identified in JGFF as: Mikolayiv, (near
Radekhov)

NYC all-girls high schools #general

alexallen@...
 

The August 30, 2006 discussion group digest mentioned several all-girls
public high schools operating in the 1930's. Jewish girls also attended
non-public high schools. My mother was one. She graduated >from Hebrew
Technical High School, where she mastered secretarial skills. The school
was located in Manhattan on East 15th Street at Second Avenue.
The building was later taken over by the NYC public school system and
operated as the Mabel Dean Bacon Vocational High School. I walked past
it every day to the all-boys Stuyvesant High School, also on East 15th Street.

Records for the town of Golshany #lithuania

Dayna <zoeys_mom@...>
 

I'm not making much progress on my grandfather's
family, and I would really like to find records from
his town in Europe, which is Golshany/Olszany/Hal'sany
(Oshmyany region, currently in the country of
Belarus).

I found a listing at Miraim Weiner's Routes to Routes
website that says the Lithuanian State Historical
Archives in Vilnius has Census records for this town
from 1784, 1816, 1834 and 1858.
I have seen the 1858 records in the LitvakSIG
database at JewishGen, but I'm wondering if there are
plans to purchase the other years and eventually have
them available online. I have found a family in the
1858 census that I'm certain is related to me (the
surname is an uncommon one: LEMELMAN), but I need
other records in order to find the connection.

Failing that, has anyone had experience with having
someone at the archives find their family in old
census records? How would one go about that and how
much would it cost? Do I need to hire a local
researcher for this?

Additionally, does anyone know if there are any vital
records (births, marriages, deaths) available for this
town?

Thanks for any help.

No such spelling #general

Evelyn Filippi
 

Sorry, but you are mistaken.
In Hebrew, no one spells the name Aron, Aharon or Aaron, with the letter
"Ayin".
To my knowledge, there is no Hebrew word "aron" spelled with an "Ayin".

Hi all,
I just got the above email in response to how my father spelled his
name. He spelled it ayin rash vav noon. The problem with researching is that
people look up things according to what they know to be right. I dont know
if this is a yiddish way to spell it or just my fathers way. So even
if the whole world spells it different this is the way My father spelled
it. Everyone on the PACHMAN side of my family spelled it this way except
one grand uncle who 60years ago started spelling it PACKMAN. On my HASS
side half of them started spelling it HAAS. Etc ,etc,etc.
Thank you again for all the help and responses.

1920 Census for Richmond Virginia: NEAMAN & WOLINSKI #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

In the 1910 census for Lynchburg Virginia, I find Mannie/Maurice
WOLINSKI with wife Kathryn, both born in Russia circa 1870 & daughter
Pauline born in New York (no city mentioned) circa 1894. They're
living on Court Street. In the 1920 census for Richmond Virginia, I
find the daughter as Pauline C NEAMAN, married (no husband listed),
owner of a grocery store, age 26. She's living with her mother
Kathryn L Wolinski, a widow, age 52. I don't find either of them
anywhere in the 1930 Census, or on any other public records at any
time. I think I know what became of the husband, but not of Pauline & Kathryn.

Does anyone have any practical ideas on how I might trace this mother
and daughter, both cousins of mine?

Best, Steve Orlen
