American Embassy Staff helps Jewish Cemetery in Vienna #austria-czech

Waehring Jewish Cemetery in 9th district of Vienna

The net edition of the Viennese daily "Der Standard" reports in todays
(July 8) net edition that staff and marines >from the American embassy in
Vienna have started to renovate the Jewish Cemetery, since the
authorities have not managed to do anything against the growing
vegetation there for decades. Plans for official action have been
delayed and delayed - until this voluntary action has started.

Pictures of this can be seen at the address (I do not know how long)

http://derstandard.at/?url/?id=3D2950704%26_index

Several reports and a leader deploring the inactivity of the authorities
can read (in German) under

www.derstandard.at

(go to "Panorama" and then to the articles *"Judischer Friedhof:
Entwicklungshilfe made in USA" and "Beschamend")*

Pinchos of Kolk

Kolk is presumably Kolky (51deg 06' N, 25deg 40' E) in Volhynia (now
part of Ukraine), about 30 miles NE of Horochiv and 27 NW of Olyk. It
is about 45 miles E of Ustila (Ustilug).

(Alfasi considers these to be the same person.)

R" Zeiv Wolf of Zhitomir died in 5557 (1797). R' Hersh Leyb of Olyk
died in 5572 (1811).
R' Pinchos of Kolk was R' Zeiv Wolf's son >from his second marriage
(to the daughter of R' Tsvi Hersh MARGOLYES of Mezrich.

R' Pinchos had a daughter Reyzl, who married R' Aharon MALOVITZKI
(Lakhovitsher Rebbe) who died in 5641 (1881).

R' Pinchos KATZENELNBOGEN of Ustila, grandson-in-law of R' Pinchos of
Kolk was the father-in-law of Devora PERLOW (daughter of the
Koidanover Rebbe Shlomo Chayim PERLOW 5557-5622, and a second cousin
of R' Aharon MALOVITZKI, who married her great-aunt)

I guess that R' Sendr Shmuel of Horochov was much older than his
sister Reyzl, and maybe she was born >from a second marriage.

During my research I came across 2 persons called Pinchas, ABD of a town called
Kalik. The two may be actually one, as I suspect they lived in the same period
approx (end of 18 century - beginning of the 19th).
There are numerous towns in the Ukraine and Belarus which have similar
spellings to Kalik - I found this using a well-known on-line map search.

You could also use the JewishGen Family Finder and do a soundalike search on the
town - this will show you where other JewishGen members have registered their
families etc as living - which will focus on where there was a Jewish population.

Given that your researches relate to a rabbinic family you might wish to
post to Ravsig (JewishGen).

KUJANSKI/WINTER #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

On the 4th of July - after a search extending over several years - I finally met
two second paternal cousins (once removed) named WINTER. To protect their identity
I will only refer to them as my Southern California cousins.
My father and their paternal grandfather were first cousins.

Our common ancestor (>from Lodz, Poland) was Isaac KUJAWSKI (born circa 1842). My
paternal grandfather, Szija Wolf KUJAWSKI, was >from Lodz, Poland. After emigrating
to England circa 1895, he went by the name of Simon WOOLF. The paternal grandfather
of my Southern California cousins emigrated to the US in 1920 and settled in
Paterson, New Jersey. After settling in the US he adopted the name WINTER.

My new-found relatives in Southern California have informed me that they had
cousins in Germany named WINTER. Whether they ever visited the US and met their
American counterparts is uncertain, however. I'm now embarking on a search to
locate those German cousins and determine the relationship between them, the
WINTER family in Southern California, and my family.

I was also told there are also relatives in London, England named WINTER but
that is all I know about them at present.

If anyone believes he/she might be related to me in some way or to the
WINTER family in the US, please get in touch. I should mention that I'm aware
there is a German SIG although I haven't yet subscribed.

Re: Question on Outbound Passenger Lists #unitedkingdom

Marvin Weinberg asked:
Is it possible to gain access the Outbound Passenger Lists online? If so,

how?

Assuming you are referring to the Outbound passenger lists >from the UK then
this series is currently being digitised and indexed by a commercial
organisation (who make a small charge for access to their records). I am
not sure if I can refer to this organisation specifically on this list but
if you use a search engine like Google and type in:
Outbound passenger lists
then I suspect that you will be well rewarded.
There are plans to index 1890-1929. The years 1890-1909 have been indexed
and digitised, and are online.

If you have any difficulty finding the correct website then please email me
