Gabin / Gombin 1809-1825 birth, marriage, death records online #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Gabin / Gombin (pow. Gostynin) civil (Jewish and non-Jewish) birth,
marriage, and death records for 1809-1825 are viewable (not
searchable) online as scans on szukajwarchiwach.pl. The scans appear
to correspond to FHL microfilms 729331-729334.

To use this collection, start by viewing the list of years and record
types for which there are scans at
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/398/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki.
Not all types (birth, marriage, death) are available for all years.
Click a link of interest >from the list for which the number in the
rightmost column is not 0 (which indicates there are no scans). Then
click the "Digital copies" or "Skany" tab at the top to see thumbnail
images.

At this point, you can browse through all the images or try to find
names of interest in the handwritten indices that are often, but not
always, on the last few images. When there are indices, they are
sometimes by given name, sometimes by surname. Either way, when you
find a thumbnail that you want to enlarge, click the thumbnail to see
a medium-size version. While viewing a medium-size image, you can
click on the right or left side of the image (an arrow icon will
appear under your cursor) to display the next or previous medium-size
image. Click the rectangle icon in the bottom right of a medium-size
image to see the full-size version (which might not fit entirely on
your screen, so click and drag the full-size images with your mouse to
reveal off-screen sections). While viewing a full-size image, you can
click the links just above the image, on the right or left, to display
the next or previous full-size image. To download a full-size image,
click the link at the bottom center, below the image.

Here is an example of a full-size image containing a Jewish birth
record >from 1816 (number 36, bottom right):

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/398/0/-/15/skan/full/fP1MCdwILeZhBKTtX1xMkA

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Plock for making these scans
available. Scans of civil records >from other nearby towns, such as
Gostynin, might also be available for the same time period, see
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/str/1/200#tabZasoby. (Perhaps, someone
else can review and catalog those likely to be of Jewish interest.)

The purpose of this message is to notify you of this resource, but I
regret I am not able to provide individual assistance.

Father and Descendants of ABRAHAM ZUCKERMAN from CHYROW, Poland #ukraine

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

Dear Genners,
I am looking for the descendants of ABRAHAM ZUCKERMAN (born 1878) who
immigrated >from CHYROW/CHIROV
(Then Poland today Ukraine) to the U.S on 1923. (Ellis Island Channa's
declaration)
He lived in 58 Lewis St., New York when his family arrived.

His family joined him on December 5th 1928:
Channa/Annah/Anna (nee MEISNER) wife (born 1878)

Their children:
SERA/SARA (b. 1909)
LIEBE/LENA/LILLIAN/LEAH (b.1912)
CHAJE PESSEL/ HELEN (b.1914/5)
RYFKE/RIVKA became RUTH(b.1915)
ELIJAEEZ SZYJA /ALEX (b. 1920).

Alex was born in Korczyna (Korchina),Poland and I do have a reason to
believe all his brothers and sisters
were born there or in other town in Galicia.

The censuses of 1930, 1940 (in Ancestry.com) do not tell.
In Alex's Social Security Applications and Claims of Ancestry.com :
His parents are mentioned also his mother's maiden name -Meisner.

Questions:
1. Could not trace their descendants in the U.S.A.
My father's family - ZUCKERMAN -is originated >from CHYROW and their
private names
are as my father's great uncles, aunts and cousins.

2. Who was ABRAHAM'S ZUCKERMAN father?
This fact would connect (or not ) Abraham to our family.


Any help would be appreciated!

ViewMate photo analysis request #general

Roy Ogus
 

I've posted a photo of 4 brothers in my family tree on the Viewmate site at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=42545

The photo was taken in South Africa during the period 1915 - 1930, and
I'm trying to determine more accurately when the photo was taken.
To help me do so, I would be interested in what people feel are the estimated
ages of the 4 men in the picture.

The brothers are shown >from left to right: Solomon, Harry, Edward
and Louis. The order of age of the brothers (>from oldest to youngest)
is Harry, Louis, Solomon, and Edward.

About how old do you think each of the men are in the picture?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Somewhat a strange request, but thanks for your input!

Else GRUN nee LINDNER #general

Roy Star
 

It has been a while since I have asked this question.
I am still seeking answers if anyone can help me.
Have you come across the name Else GRUN nee LINDNER. (1888-1943) ?

She married a Mr GRUN.
I don't know where she originally came >from (possibly Tarnopol area,
Galicia), but lived in VIENNA around late 1930-1940.
Her address was :
15/15 Liechtenstein Str., Vienna 9. With or without her husband!
She was well known to my late father when she was living in North London
towards the end of her life.
I cannot find any immigration records, or Census records.
I found her grave in North London which has no Hebrew, and does not
show her fathers name.
It shows her married name GRUN and her maiden name LINDNER.
Her UK death certificate does not give her husbands first name.
Only her addresses in London and Vienna.
My paternal great-grandmother was Ruchel GRUN. It could be that Else was
married to one of her brothers!
I cannot trace her parents either, so she 'stands alone' just outside
my family tree!

Wallenberg Passport Lists #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Peter Lande at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum has asked for our help =
with indexing of a list of Hungarian Jews who received Wallenberg =
passports. The list includes names, birthdates and places, and the =
address where the individual was sheltered in Budapest. =20

As many of you know, Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat whose efforts =
helped to prevent the deportation and murder of thousands of Hungarian =
Jews. With authorization >from the Swedish government, Wallenberg issued =
"protective passports" (German: Schutz-Pass) that identified the bearers =
as Swedish subjects awaiting repatriation. These documents looked =
official and were generally accepted by German and Hungarian =
authorities. With funds raised by the US War Refugee Board, Wallenberg =
rented 32 buildings in Budapest and declared them to be =
extraterritorial, protected by diplomatic immunity. He put up signs such =
as "The Swedish Library" and "The Swedish Research Institute" on their =
doors and hung oversize Swedish flags on the front of the buildings to =
bolster the deception. The buildings eventually housed almost 10,000 =
people.

You can read more about Wallenberg's effort and find links to =
related information, including photographs, at =

Hungary SIG #Hungary Wallenberg Passport Lists #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Peter Lande at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum has asked for our help =
with indexing of a list of Hungarian Jews who received Wallenberg =
passports. The list includes names, birthdates and places, and the =
address where the individual was sheltered in Budapest. =20

As many of you know, Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat whose efforts =
helped to prevent the deportation and murder of thousands of Hungarian =
Jews. With authorization >from the Swedish government, Wallenberg issued =
"protective passports" (German: Schutz-Pass) that identified the bearers =
as Swedish subjects awaiting repatriation. These documents looked =
official and were generally accepted by German and Hungarian =
authorities. With funds raised by the US War Refugee Board, Wallenberg =
rented 32 buildings in Budapest and declared them to be =
extraterritorial, protected by diplomatic immunity. He put up signs such =
as "The Swedish Library" and "The Swedish Research Institute" on their =
doors and hung oversize Swedish flags on the front of the buildings to =
bolster the deception. The buildings eventually housed almost 10,000 =
people.

You can read more about Wallenberg's effort and find links to =
related information, including photographs, at =
