Advice needed: mess-up by the Warsaw Archives (PSA - AGAD) #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

I inquired into ordering a record >from the PSA archives and received an
email informing me that the record was located, directing me how and where
to wire the fees to obtain the said record. The wire transfer was made
according to their directions.

After a while passed and I had not heard anything back, I inquired as to
what was happening and was informed that no payment was received and I
should wire the fee to a *new* account number. I responded that I had already
made a transfer to the account number they had originally given me as
instructed in their first email and sent them a copy of the receipt for
this. I asked that they locate this payment and send me the record and if
there was a problem doing this, they should contact me. I heard nothing.

Two weeks ago having gotten no response, I saw on the JRI-Poland website
that if I do not hear within 30 days, I should contact the PSA headquarters
at the Archives. Thus, I sent an email to them explaining the situation and
as yet I have heard nothing >from them.

If there is anyone out there who can help me solve this problem, I would
greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

To reply privately, please remove all numbers >from my email address.

Thanks,

Any idea as to it's location??
Parech as _his_ last name or a town name?

If this is a town name in question, most probably this is a corrupted
version of town Parczew, located NNE >from Lublin.

I am interested in the family of Samuel DUBELIRER (~1866-1916) and
Fannie ROZENZAFT (~1871-1898). Their dates of birth and death are
just approximate.

I believe they had the following children: Isidor, Morris (Motel),
Nathan (Nuta), Benjamin and Ejdia. The children were born in Chorzow.

I suspect there are additional children but have been unable to
identify them. The children all immigrated to the United States in
the 1920s, Isidore being the first to immigrate. They settled in New
York and changed their name to DUBLER.

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who might have this
family in their tree or is familiar with them. I wasn't able to
locate any records for them on JRI Poland and no one has listed them
in JGFF. I am interested in them as they descend >from my GOLDFLUS

Dear Linda,

Are you refering to large city Chorzow in Upper Silesia (Katowice region) or
to small village Chorzow in the Jaroslaw/ Przemysl vicinity?

Birthdates: Julian, Gregorian or imaginary #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

I have 4 relatives for whom I have both the original European birth record
from Nezhin Ukraine and a date of birth on an official U.S. record. In two
cases, the U.S. date of birth seems fictional in that it is unrelated to
either the Julian or Gregorian original version. In the other two cases,
the U.S. date seems to be a (faulty) attempt to use the Gregorian date, being
4 and 5 days later than the Gregorian date.
Too small a sample to be significant.

Re: Julian calendar or Gregorian calender #general

Terryn
 

The modern Bar Mitzvah celebration was invented in the USA after WW II.
Not true! One of the most common emails I receive regarding the pre-WWII
photographs on my site tell me how "my father/grandfather was so happy to be
able to show me/my son where he was Bar Mitzvahed". My grandfather and
great-grandfather were both Bar Mitzvahed in the "Old Country" well before
WWII. These weren't isolated events, they were common in the area at the
time.

It may have not been the expensive blowout that modern Bar Mitzvahs are, but
it included the same key events such as sponsoring a bottle of wine/a bit of
food at the oneg, the Bar Mitzvah boy putting on his very own "grown-up
tallis" and reading >from the Torah by himself, and later, a party with too
many people and as much food as they could come up with. My zeyde, being
born on the 3rd candle of Chanukah, fondly remembered his Bar Mitzvah party
as "the latke party to end all latke parties!"

Re: reading a Parasha at bar mitzvah #general

Irene Newhouse
 

I'm not sure one can categorically state that reading a parasha
at bar mitzvah was invented in the US after WWII. My mother had
her bat mitzvah in Germany before WWII, and somewhere in a trunk
in the home I grew up in is a certificate that includes which
section she read. More information would be needed about the
regional customs of one's family's origin.
