Re: Town called Chodlsoff #galicia

Phyllis Kramer
 

Stephen Denker asked "My grandfather's 1913 naturalization papers says
he was born September 1870 in Chodlsoff Austria. Any suggestions as to
the 'correct' name?"

First, was the name typed or handwritten?

Second, do check the 1930 and 1940 census too, as it may give another
country.

Third, endings which sound like "off" usually are written "ow," "ov" or "iv."

Fourth, most likely if he said Austria, it would have meant Galicia, and
would be in either Poland or Ukraine today.

So I tried the JewishGen community pages for a town starting in Cho in
Poland and found no town which was in Austria before WWI. In the
Ukraine, here's what I found...

Chortkiv, Ukraine 49 01 N 25 48 E, 232 mi WSW of Kyyiv
Chortkiv [Ukr], Chortkov [Rus, Yid], Czortkow [Pol]

Hope this helps...

Re: Zabludow #poland

Re Zablover shul near Bialystok, this sounds like it is probably Zabludow,
a small town east of Bialystok, renowned for its timber Synagogue which was
destroyed by the Nazis in 2nd world war. I would be very interested in the
photo - but don't know what you mean by the photo is in the Forverts.
(Also google Zabludow and you will find there is a page on its Jewish
history and photos of the synagogue).

I am trying to determine the proper name of the location of this shul, a

The caption reads, "The Zablover Shool," near Bialystok, built 800 years

Can anyone tell me what the proper name of this town is? Thanks.

The response for my post regarding finding living relatives was really
overwhelming. I would like to thank everybody who helpfully answered. Most
of the responders suggested WhitePages, and/or 411.
Those are obvious, and the reason I asked for help was that those two did
not give any significant results.

Many Thanks again,

A Century of Pinczow Record Extractions #poland

Judy Golan <judygolan@...>
 

Dear Friends:

Long-time Pinczow area researchers will be excited to learn that Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland volunteers have completed full extraction of
birth, marriage and death records >from 1826-1912 - more than 24,000
record entries.

To launch this massive Phase 3 project JRI-Poland acquired scans of all
Pinczow PSA records. Pinczow researchers making a minimum qualifying
contribution of $180 are eligible to receive an Excel file with full
extracts of all records for their direct family surnames.

However, to conjecture all possible surnames for the patronymic era
records >from 1810-1825, there is an additional aspect to participating
in this unique project.

Professor Heshel Teitelbaum of Canada, author of "A Genealogical
History of the Jewish in Pinczow (Poland) in the 18th & 19th Centuries"
http://iijg.org/research/jews-of-pinczow/ has extracted all Jewish
records in the mixed 1810-1825 Pinczow Civil Records. Participants in
the Phase 3 Project are asked to submit gedcom files with their
Pinczow-related family to Professor Teitelbaum to enable him to further
his analysis of Patronymic era records and assign surnames to all
possible entries.

The combination of the 1810-1825 and 1826-1912 data will provide
researchers whose families were rooted in Pinczow a full century of
data and potential linkages that could not be undertaken without the
scans and the unprecedented research carried out by the consummate
expert on Pinczow Jewish records and families.

I look forward to assisting with your research. Please contact me for
details.

ViewMate translation request - Gravestone in Bukowsko, Poland #general

Debbie Raff
 

Hello JewishGeners,

I've posted a photo of a Bukowsko, Poland gravestone on ViewMate. If you can
translate Hebrew, I would appreciate an English translation. Once translated,
I plan to add this information to my JewishGen Kehila link page.
This is a town with no known vital records and very few gravestones. So, I
hope to include this person once the stone is translated.

The gravestone photo is # 45575 on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM45575

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. Any
information would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Searching for Maurice WEIS(S)MAN? #general

ronald Wallace
 

I am searching for someone called Maurice who's last name was either WEISSMAN
or WEISMAN or his Mother was a nase Weis(s)man. He was the child of one of
four siblings all of whom perished in the Holocaust. Their names were Israel,
Abraham, Sabina and Macia Weisman.

He would have been born in the early 1930's or thereabouts in The Romania/
Moldova/Ukraine area. Having lost both his parents in the Holocaust, He
contacted his Uncle Michael Weisman (the 5th Sibling) in the UK sometime after
the 2nd World War, and stated he saw his parents taken away.

Anyone with any knowledge of this person, please contact me privately

Thank You
