Debby Gincig Painter
 

Again thanks to all who have given advice as to how to carry on with my search. One
suggestion was to find the will for Morris Gincig, (died March 29, 1950 in Brooklyn)
and check the will for names of my known immediately family. Is there someone who is
going to the courthouse who might be willing to find a copy of his will for me?
Please reply privately.

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

Warsaw Cemetery Data added to Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database #poland

hadassahlipsius
 

Last week, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland added to our searchable
database information on an additional 7,400 burials >from the Warsaw
Jewish Cemetery.

(This information is >from the file also known as Warsaw Cemetery
Database "C").

The historic Warsaw Jewish Cemetery on Okopowa Street has been in
continuous use since late in the 18th century and contains an estimated
250,000 individual graves as well as mass graves of thousands of residents
of the Warsaw Ghetto. While most of the gravestones have survived, the
cemetery burial records were destroyed by Nazi forces during the WW II
occupation of Warsaw.

Starting in October 2003, Przemyslaw Isroel Szpilman, the new Cemetery
Manager, commenced an aggressive project with a goal of documenting all
the gravestones and their locations in the shortest possible time. Using
a digital camera provided by JRI-Poland, work has proceeded at a brisk
pace and with the recent update to the JRI-Poland database we now have
more than 41,000 burials listed. Information on this database and how
to obtain photographs of tombstones can be found at the following link

http://www.jri-poland.org/cemetery/warsaw_beisolam.htm

The Warsaw Cemetery also has a new website with a surname searchable
database that is complementary to the JRI-Poland database. The search
results sometimes include the photograph of the tombstone.
The url for their new website is http://www.cemetery.jewish.org.pl/

Besides the data currently being compiled by Przemyslaw Isroel Szpilman,
JRI-Poland's database has two additional Warszawa Cemetery data sets.

1) Warsaw Cemetery Database-"A" contains data compiled by the former
Warsaw Cemetery Director, Boleslaw Szenicer.

2) Warsaw Cemetery Database-"B" contains 3832 indices >from an unusual
source. In the late 1960s, the City of Warsaw drew up plans to extend
Anielewicza Street (formerly Gesia Street) to connect with Mlynarska
Street
through the southern section of the cemetery. Gravesites in sections
1, 2, 3, 3a, 4b, 91, 92, 97, 99 and 99a were to have been removed, and
in preparation the stones were photographed, and inscriptions were
deciphered and recorded. This work was carried out by Warsaw University
students. However after strong opposition to the street extension the
plans were cancelled. Ultimately, the photos and documentation were
turned over to the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw.

Please note there are overlaps between the three data sets. Data set C
(Mr.Szpilman's data) is the only active database that is continually
being updated.
