Re: Polish Citizens Escape to Russia - western Poland #general

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

The Polish army actually fought pretty heroically against the Germans in
1939, and it's a myth that the Poles charged German tanks on horseback.
A major factor in the Poles defense was that they positioned most of
their forces far forward in the extreme Western area of Poland, much of
them in areas that were historically contested by Germany. The Poles did
this because they feared that if the Germans rapidly took these areas
without a stiff Polish defense England and France might sign a separate
pact with Germany similar to Munich, rather than go to war to assist the
Poles. Militarily the Poles would have been better advised to hold more
of their forces back further East and wage more of a defense in depth,
and their Generals knew this, but it was a Political decision, and one
that in the context of the time probably made some good sense. Some of
the Yizkor books contain testimony >from Jewish men who fought in the
Polish Army during this period. It's important to also remember the
Soviets participated in the launch of WW II, and invaded Poland on the
17th of September claiming to be protecting Ukrainian and Belorussian
minorities in Eastern Poland. The Soviets murdered numerous Polish
officers and murdered many Polish prisoners of war. Also the Polish
defense plan had called for a retreat to the Southeast part of Poland
while awaiting relief >from the Western allies who it was hoped would
attack on Germany's Western border. However once the Soviets attacked in
the East there was thought to be no chance at all that Germany could be
defeated in the West. Poland's fate was sealed, The Polish Jews were
caught between the two totalitarian homicidal expansionist powers, each
of which in their own way and to their own degree would be very bad for
them. Many of the Yizkor books >from Eastern Poland include memories
from this period. The one >from my families Shtetl makes very palpable
the anxiety, tension, and desperation of the towns Jews. I also have a
letter written in late August of 1939 to relatives in the US which very
clearly and fatefully communicates fear and anxiety regarding what was
developing. It's really frightening to read, as you realize that these
poor people were at the mercy of events over which they had no control
at all, and which they new were going to impact them very adversely.
just at that point they really couldn't imagine just how bad it would be.

Jewish and non Jewish survivors of the slave labour camps and death
camps to provide a picture of what happened to the Jewish community...

Yesterday, I posted a message indicating that three documents had been

Now the two remaining documents (17411 and 17412) are up. I would be
very grateful for a translation, in each document, of the column

Y and mt haplogroup mismatch #dna

Martin Davis (com)
 

Alex Miller's question about the speed of mutation of Y-DNA and mtDNA, using
a pre Columbian Native American example, is an novel pathway into Jewish DNA
issues. He asked, in reference to the Native Americans DNA research
findings: "...Does that mean that the mtDNA mutates faster, or these guys
got their women by mail order >from another continent?".

An accessible reference for Native American DNA research is to be found at
http://www.genetics.org/cgi/content/abstract/130/1/153 and indicates that
Native American mitochondrial DNA were founded by two independent
migrations. So nothing to do with speed of mutation (mtDNA has a much slower
mutation rate).

A more conventional path into the subject of Jewish DNA could be via the
Wiki page Genetic Studies on Jews to be found at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_studies_on_Jews .

Too many with same name - need help sorting out who is who #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

After years of trying, I am wondering if someone might be able to help sort some
information out for or with me. I am trying to connect a Morris and a Charles
GINCIG/GINZIG living in New York City to my family.

The problem is that that I have come across at least 6 Charles Ginzigs and
3 Morris Ginzig/Gincigs located in New York City and its boroughs during the
same time period with a Morris and a Charles, both involved in the diamond or
jeweler business but no other information (date of birth/death, family members
etc available) so haven't been able to verify they are the right ones.
(Note: Family stories say we had a relative in NYC or Chesapeake Bay NY that was
a jeweler who never married and so a relative >from California traveled to New
York and received an inheritance. This has been handed down so details are
probably fuzzy at best. It might be possible that he just didn't have any
descendants.)

What information I do have:
An article >from the New York Sun dated Monday December 10, 1928 mentioning a
jewelry store "Gincig & Siegel, Inc" located at 48 West Forty-eight St.

I believe the Gincig in "Gincig & Siegel is Morris Gincig (also found as Ginzig
and other spellings) b. August 1967 in either Krakow, Austria or New York City -
parents born Germany (census information). He was a jeweler and married Julia
(nee REINHEIMER) June 8, 1897 in Manhattan. A death notice has him passing March
30, 1950 but doesn't not mention any children but does mention Julia. His birth
certificate lists parents as Charles and Rose (nee Mincey) Gincig.

Charles Gincig was born Abt. 1835 in Austria (German speaking), and died Unknown
probably in New York City, NY. He married Rosa MEIZEL. She was born Abt. 1837
in Austria (German speaking), and died Unknown in probably New York City, NY.
These names >from Son William's birth certificate. William was b. July 7, 1875
New York City, NY d. February 10, 1936 Los Angeles, Ca. William's year of birth
varies >from 1873-1876 on his children's birth certificates. William is my
Great-Grandfather.

Are these the same persons as above?:
1880 New York Census - Charles Ginzig b. abt 1835 (Austria German speaking;
necktie maker) - Wife Rachel b. about 1837 and sons Bernard b. abt 1859 Germany,
John b. abt 1862 Germany, Morris b. abt 1866 Germany, and William b. 1876 NYC.

What information I have that I don't believe is for my Charles Gincig/Ginzig:
Charles Ginzig 1872 113 Division St, NYC Peddler
Charles Ginzig 40 Delancy St New York City 1878 Laborer aka Charles Ginsig:
Naturalized 1876 New York City. Nationality: Austria. Address: 40 Delancy St?
Charles Ginzig 5 Allen New York City - tailor 1886; Necktie Maker 1880
Charles Ginzig b. Oct. 1834 Germany; married Henrietta. 1900 Day Laborer Cigar
Roller 1910. State of Iowa Census.
Charles Ginzig b. about 1833 Poland d. August 13, 1908 Manhattan NY married
Rosalia ? b. about 1835 in Poland. d. March 28, 1902 Manhattan, NY. Source: 1870
census. Is he Kalman Guntzig/Gincig married to Rajzla Muntzer found in Poland
Index Jewishgen?

Census workers many times wrote what they heard, people used different names,
and then throw in the confusion of Krakow belonging to Austria, Poland and
Galicia with its citizens speaking either Polish, German or Yiddish in U.S.
censuses and you can see why I'm crying out for help!!

Here's hoping someone is better at this then I am,

How to find the cemetery for a Boston 1900 death? #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I've found a 1900 record of the death of a person in Boston. The
record doesn't indicate the actual cemetery, only the city where the
person was buried, i.e. Boston. I've searched the JCAM database
(http://www.jcam.org/), findagrave.com, and jewishgen.org, but the
person is not listed in any of those databases. Unfortunately any other
relatives of this person, died decades later, so they were probably
buried in different cemeteries. Does anyone have any suggestions of
what else I might try (besides, of course, looking through every Boston
Jewish cemetery that have burials >from that time period)? Thanks very
much.
