ViewMate Translation Request - Polish #galicia

Ken Entin
 

I have the birth register entries for my grandfather and his siblings.
One of the columns asks for the name, occupation, and residence of
the father (the column heading has already been translated). In each
instance, the father is Moses Gutman and the residence is Bolszowce
in Galicia. What I would like to know is the meaning of the words
which appear to represent the occupation. The item is on ViewMate
at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM24921

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. If
you prefer, you can contact me directly.

Thank you very much.

GROSSMAN - Military Records, Austria/Hungary 1895 -1896 & USA Naturalization #general

Karen <k.silver@...>
 

Hello Jewish Genners:

I just received information on an Alien Registration form in 1940 that my
great Uncle Ferdinand Alfred GROSSMAN had listed that he was in the Army
in Austria-Hungary >from 1895-1896. I would like to search those records
somehow, if somebody out there can direct me.

He was born June 16, 1876 in Nagy, Becskerek. He also said that he filed
his first citizenship papers in 1907 in Harrisburg, PA. I have not been
able to find those either.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Karen Silver-Catania

Re: Mobility in the Ukraine - agricultural settlement #ukraine

Doug Cohen
 

My principal source for that comment is Hal Bookbinder's IAJGS lecture, "Why
Did our Ancestors Leave a Nice Place Like the Pale" which I heard at a
conference (Los Angeles, I think) a few years ago, and which he repeated
earlier this month in Boston. My two-sentence summary is certainly an
oversimplification, but, I think true to his message. Polonsky, in his
encyclopedic series, "The Jews in Poland and Russia" refers to the
agricultural settlement program as "half-baked" (vol. 1, p. 386).

This is most definitely incorrect.

Cemetery Photos #ukraine

AllanDolgow@...
 

I took random photographs of headstones at cemeteries in Novograd-Volinsky
and Kamenny Brod Ukraine. These were place in a photo album. Unfortunately
I misplaced or lost the DVD that they were on. However if this is of value
I will donate the album to JewishGen.

Re: the given name SCHMIKA #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

Hi Michael,
On the basis that Schmika could be also be spelled Shmika, I looked this
up in Beider's book of Ashkenazic Given Names, he suggests Sime which is
derived >from Simcha joy. I expect the most common US form would be Simma.
Beider distinguishes Sime >from Shimone.

with an S).

GREENE of Boston - Thank you #general

JoAnne Lamm
 

On Nov. 13, I asked for help in finding my Greene family of Boston.

By Nov. 14, the group members had located the family and some of their
burial sites, offered to take pictures at the cemetery and showed me the steps
they took to find my family.

I'm touched by how helpful this group has been and hope to repay the
kindness someday by helping someone else.

Thank you,
