Please tell me if this is anywhere near Ulanow and how can I continue
along this line.

Thank you in advance, Leon.

Dear Elsebeth,

It is easy to see how you missed the offending part of the message, as the
first part contained some very good information, and reminders of resources
even for people who have used the JewishGen InfoFiles, the search engine
Google, etc. in the past.

You are certainly forgiven! We all appreciate the time and dedication you
give to moderating this newsgroup, which I now read even before I read
JewishGen because of the valuable - for me - information in it.

I was asked by the past president of the Polish Genealogical Society of
America, Mr. Paul Valasek to bring the following to your attention.

The Polish genealogical website PolishRoots features a small database of
school children in Tarnow in 1854. There are many Jewish names alongside
with the Polish ones.

JewishGenMal's Passover Specials #latinamerica

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

With Chanukah behind us, can Passover be very far ahead? Not according to
the JewishGenMall managers who have a spectacular array of Passover books,
gifts, software and videos ready and waiting for you to visit the Mall and
take a look at this fabulous selection.

Just to give you some idea of the range of items.... we have the famous
"Survivor's Hagadah", created in the winter of 1945-46 by Holocaust
survivors in displaced persons camps around Munich. This is an
extraordinary illustrated haggadah prepared for the first Passover after
liberation. Now the Jewish Publication Society is proud to issue this
facsimile edition, previously translated into English and published by the
American Jewish Historical Society only as a limited edition. Interwoven
with the traditional Passover liturgy are two stories: that of the
deliverance of the Pharoah in Egypt, and the Holocaust story of those Jews
who survived Hitler.

There is also a variety of other fascinating Hagadahs including
(especially for the computer cognizant among us) CD-Rom Hagadahs and
Software for both Windows and Mac users <grin>

Would you believe even the rugrats are getting into the swing of
things.....Passover videos for kids..."A Rugrats Passover" Speaking of
Passover gifts for kids, you'll find "A Treasury of Sholom Aleichim
Children's Stories" and the classic Passover song illustrated and hand
lettered "One Little Goat-Had Gadya"

Last, but certainly not least the Mall has some wonderful gift items
including "Chagall: Love and the Stage: 1914-1922"; "The Illustrated Torah"
with wonderful conemporary illustrations by Micahel Meron ; and the
anthology "In Every Generation: A Treasury of Inspiration for Passover and
the Seder"

Much much more....too numerous to list here...this message was just to give
you a taste of what is in the mall, awaiting your visit to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall/

And please remember that your purchases in the Mall help support the
JewishGen Operations budget.

I wonder if Workman's Circle keeps any records. My grandmother died in
1965. Up until her death she took classes sponsored by Workman's Circle.
I believe it was in Brighton Beach, but may have been in lower
Manhattan. She worked in the garment industry at first and then owned a
dress shop. I know she belonged to a sewers union as well. Any
suggestions?

BERNSTEIN from Lima, Ohio and maybe from Sejny, Lithuania #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I've been researching my LEVINE/LEVINSKY/BIALAGORSKY family for the past
25 years. Of late I've been fortunate in finding some "long lost"
ancestors that everyone seemed to have "lost" contact with many years
ago.

Yesterday I spoke with a gentleman (living in Pittsburgh), who gave me
some very interesting information about his maternal uncle. The more he
told me about this man, the more intrigued I became. I'm thinking that
it is very possible that his uncle might well be the son of a "missing
link" among my own mggm's siblings.

My mggm's family surname was originally BIALAGORSKY. We believe that
they came >from the Suwalki or Sejny area of "Lithuania/Poland"
(depending upon the historical time frame). When the children of Lazar
Bialagorsky left home they wound up settling in Ontario Prov., Canada;
Philadelphia, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Chicago, IL; probably Boston, MA.
These folks took the more Anglicized surnames of LAVINE, LEVIN, LEVINE,
LEVINSKY, and LEVY.

However, we know (>from stories by family elders) that one of Lazar B's
sons was adopted by a wealthy cousin who needed a son to carry on his
family name - BERNSTEIN. For the last five years, I've been searching
for any information I might find regarding that man Saul
Bialagorsky/Bernstein. [And, yes, before you ask I *have* checked JGFF.]

The gentleman >from Pittsburgh told me about his uncle BERNSTEIN's
family. Here's what I DO know:

Max BERNSTEIN came >from "Pashva, Lithuania"
[I believe that is actually PAZIBAI which is
located 86.5 mi. NNW of Vilna]

Max was probably born sometime in the 1880s or 90s,
and probably died sometime in the 1940s or 50s.

Max immigrated to the USA and settled in Lima, OH
where he was a successful businessman in many
different enterprises, including the manufacture
and sales of automobiles and trucks for military
use in WW1.

Max had at least three children:
Clarence - who wound up living in Detroit, MI
Maxine - who married a man named BROEDE
and wound up living in NYC area
"sister" who married a man named Emil LEVY
who owned the Lima Mattress Mfgr. Co. in
Lima, OH.

I know that this isn't much to go on, but I'm hoping that maybe someone
on the list might find some of the information "familiar" enough that
they will respond to this post. If any of this information sounds even
vaguely familiar to you, please write to me privately
