KATZ ELLIS ISLAND #unitedkingdom

malcolm katz <malkikatz9361@...>
 

Im looking for descendents of ELIK KATZ landed at
Ellis Island 30/11/1904 ship Blucher >from Hamburg.
He is listed as married and a baker born 1865 in
KUTNO,Russia(Now Poland).
His ticket was paid by his brother and he is listed as
SCHOLAM KATZ of Delancy ?? 170.New York.
I believe very strongly these brothers were siblings
of my Great Grandfather ISAAC ELIAS KATZ born 1864 in
KUTNO,He came to London in 1906 and stayed here.
Kind Regards
Malki Katz
London

Re: PICKARCZYK family from Rodzies #general

I'm searching information about a PICKARCZYK family who is said to come
from Rodzies (Poland) and came to France before 1930. I can't find these
names (both the family name and the place) anywhere. Several of them were
deported >from France during WWII, but I couldn't find any trace either.
Any information would be welcome.
Eve,

"Pickarczyk" is corrupted version of Piekarczyk (literally, a "little
baker"). All Poland/ JRI-P databases list 66 entries for Piekarczyk (exact
spelling), mostly >from Lomza, some >from Kalisz region.

As to town "Rodzies" - its another corrupted version, one may speculate if
this is Radzyn Podlaski (also known as Rodzin), Racia,z' near Sierpc or
parhaps Radzicz.

Memorial books from Germany and Austria/IAJGS conference #austria-czech

Harvey Finberg <hjfinberg@...>
 

At the IAJGS 2006 conference, I attended the session given by Fritz
Neubauer on the Genealogical Information in Memorial Books >from
Germany and Austria. Fritz showed examples >from the books and in
some cases >from accompanying Internet site or cd-rom. There are
instances where more information is included in one or the other
format. Fritz showed us a number of different German and Austrian
memorial books. Each one had a slightly different format and often
one can obtain additional information by using more that one of the
sources. Some of the books even contain photographs of the
victims. It was helpful to see some of the differences and learn
about the variety of sources available. Fritz cited this source for
an introduction to the resources:

Re: Mikolajow by Gaje (near Bobrka)/Yizkor Book #galicia

Penny Herbst
 

A genuine thank you to Alexander Sharon for addressing (and resolving), a
very important issue with regard to distinguishing among the three Galician
Mikolajow towns he referenced in his August 31st message.

I am the great-niece of the Shoichet of Mikolajow by Gaje (near Bobrka), and
have researched this town and its inhabitants for many years. Currently I am
in the process of completing a long overdue Yizkor Book for that town.

Should anyone find that their ancestors are >from Mikolajow by Gaje (near
Bobrka), after reading Alexander's informative email, please be kind enough
to let me know.

Again, many thanks to Alexander, a most dedicated and valuable member of our
genealogical community.
