Searching: KOTSOLKOWSKI #poland

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Im trying to help a friend in his research.

He is searching for KOTSOLKOWSKI. When the family arrived in the UK they
abbreviated the name to

KOSKI.

During his research, he found KOCIOLKOWSKI and has been in touch with
someone in Canada who is descended >from KOCIOLKOWSKI's >from London in
the late 1800's but cannot yet find a sure link. The first record in
England was 1856 when Charles KOTSOLKOWSIK married. On the UK marriage
certificate it was recorded that Charles (Hebrew name Shabtei)
father's name was Samuel.

If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, input I would appreciate receiving
it. Also, if anyone knows the meaning of the name.

Thanks in advance

Lightning Strike #galicia

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Often it is helpful to provide information on natural disasters
in our ancestors' shtetls. These things put life in perspective
and explain why families may have left a shtetl or why certain
stories may have been passed down the generations regarding
these matters.

One such disaster I found was noted in the September 22,
1911 issue of The Jewish Chronicle in London. They were
advising that the Saturday previous, during the afternoon
service, when the Torah was being read, lightning had struck
the Czezanow synagogue which was located in Galicia.

As the article stated: "Everyone in the synagogue fell to the
ground, insensible, and remained so for some time." It was
further reported that one person was killed.

Records of births of Jews in VILKAVISKAS / WYLKOWYSZKI in 1800-1912 #lithuania

Stephen Weinstein
 

Are there any surviving copies of the records of births of Jews in
VILKAVISKAS / WYLKOWYSZKI in 1800-1912?

I checked with the archive that I though would have these records, but
they said:

"the Lithuanian State Historical Archives maintain vital records books of
Vilkaviskis Jewish community only for the years 1922 - 1939...
"We think that vital records books were destroyed during wars and fires.
"We regret we are not able to help you in your matter."

Is there another source? Salt Lake City (FHL films)? Moscow (since
Lithuania was part of Russia at the time)? Berlin (for records stolen
by the Nazis)?

Re: Czech Census of 1930? #general

The Slovak archives hold records >from the 1930 Census. In order to obtain
records it is necessary to provide the address at which the family was living
at the time of the census. I suggest that you send your inquiry to the
Hungarian SIG list to find out if anyone has had experience obtaining records
from this census.

Martyrs of Ruzhany/Rozhnoi - Correction of Previous email #general

Irene & Paul Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

I have been told that my HaLevy EPSTEIN family is descended >from a rabbi who
was martyred in Ruzhany. In addition, the author of the Ruzhany Yizkor Book,
M. Sokolovsky, states that Rabbi Shabtai WALLACH married the daughter of a
Ruzhany citizen, Yom Tov Lipman EPSTEIN, of the family of the Martyrs.
I have also been told by a genealogist that there is no familial connection
between the HaLevy Family and the ZACKHEIM Family of the Martyrs. Does
anyone know if there is a familial relationship between the second Martyr,
Rabbi BACHRACH, and the HaLevy EPSTEIN?

The town of Chotel in or near Kovno, Lithuania #general

Hi Everyone,

I am researching the following family names FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN/FREEMAN
also ROSENBERG and COHEN. These families are possibly >from a town
called; Chotel (but the name could be mis-transcribed) in, or near
Kovno Guberniya, Lithuania. >from JewishGen's town finder, there are a
few alternatives towns that Chotel might be (See below):-

If you have these family names in your tree, or if you know of these
family names living in the areas mentioned below, or if any of your
family regardless of their family name, lived in this town & emigrated
to Leeds or Liverpool in England in the late 1800's - early 1900's
please contact me.

I have searched the JewishGen town finder & the only plausible
candidates for this town are:

Gudeliai, Lithuania
54°43' N 23°36' E
17 mi SW of Kaunas (Kovno)
Gudeliai [Lith], Gudel [Yid], Gudele [Pol], Gudelyay, Gudeli,
Gudeliai Pirmieji Gudeliai

Soviet Union Gudeliai
Marijampol?

Lithuania Gudele
Marjampol
Suwa?ki
Russian Empire 6

Even though Gudel was in Suwalk Guberniya, it was very close to Kovno.

Dear Genners

I'm requesting a translation of View Mate #16075 and #16071 >from Hebrew to
English if at all possible. This cemetery in Chumalovo was destroyed in 1941
when the Jewish residents were sent to the Ukraine and murdered [Kamenets

visiting relatives in Chumalovo [Somanfalva, Csomolif, Comolovo] Hungary before
WW1, Czechoslovakia between the wars, USSR and now in the Zakarpatti Oblast
Ukraine.

Viewmate: Translation, handwritten Russian #general

Hi folks,
I need a translation of the handwritten Russian document at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16074

It is >from the JewishGen Holocaust collection and is a card filled out for a
survivor who was transported to Tashkent. The name of the survivor is the same
as an uncle of my father's (Wolf BLUMBERG) about whom we have no information.
Perhaps this is that uncle.

Many thanks!
