Dr Wolff from Breslau 1870's #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff.kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

I have some information that has indicated that a Dr Wolff (given name
unknown) in my family tree was appraently the Physician to Auguste Viktoria
the wife of Kaiser Wilhelm II before she married him. This was presumably
in the 1870's.

Dr Wolff had a sister Johanna and their parents may have been Isaac WOLFF
and Hanne NATHAN.

Does any one have any suggestions for how I could gain further information
that could support or otherwise this family anecdote. Also contact >from any
one that thinks they may have a connection to either this WOLFF or NATHAN
line would be appreciated.

Many thanks

tombstone rubbings #romania

Laurie Budgar <lbudgar@...>
 

During my recent trip to Hungary and Romania, we visited the tiny towns
of Asuajul de Jos and Asuajul de Sus (now Romania), where my great-great
grandfather Jonasz JAKAB and one of his sons (Ferenc) was born. We found
an equally tiny cemetery between the two towns-- there were maybe 6 or 8
graves. While the grass around them had been cut, the stones were tilted
at odd angles and trash had been tossed next to one of them. The writing
on them was badly eroded, so we couldn't really capture it on
photographs (though we took some anyway). Instead we did tombstone
rubbings. I admit we didn't prepare for this, so we used, alternately, a
pencil and a burnt stick. On one, my mother, who was trying to be
helpful, thought a highlighter might help-- clearly this was not good
for the rubbing or the gravestone! Also, the paper we had was slightly
larger than 8.5 x 11, so it was slightly too narrow and a few letters
got cut off on the sides, and we needed to use 4 consecutive sheets in
order to get the writing all the way down the tombstone. (Only one
tombstone was even in good enough shape for rubbings). In any case, the
writing was in Hebrew (or perhaps Yiddish?). I've posted these rubbings
on ViewMate. Unfortunately, ViewMate requires everything to be submitted
as a JPG, and for some reason, these scanned MUCH better as a document
into a PDF file. So between the rubbing errors and the scanning, there's
a degradation of quality. With that said, if anyone is able to translate
them I'd greatly appreciate it. They are #s 8923, 8924, 8925 and 8926.
Or, if anyone would like me to send PDF versions to them off-list, I can
do that too. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Kawkiewicz births in Lomza #poland

Shari Kantrow
 

Hello again,
I need some clarification on this. Looking at the
JRI-Poland index, I found what I think is my
g-grandmothers birth record. Oddly enough, there were
5 other entries for that same year with the same
father listed.:
KAWKIEWICZ, Cipa b. 1863 father Daniel Herszkowicz
KAWKIEWICZ, Mendel b. 1863 father Daniel Herszkowicz
KAWKIEWICZ, Guta b. 1863 father Daniel Herszkowicz
KAWKIEWICZ, Herszk b. 1863 father Daniel Herszkowicz
KAWKIEWICZ, Izrael b. 1863 father Daniel Herszkowicz
KAWKIEWICZ, Sora Frejda b.1863father DanielHerszkowicz

Some thoughts? Thanks in advance.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Shari has not found quintuplets. Quite often,
births were registered late -- sometimes years after the actual
birth took place, and sometimes a number of siblings were registered
at the same time. The date in the JRI-Poland birth indices is the date
of registration.

Wolf in Lviv #poland

First, you should be sure you are using variants of the names that you
are likely to hit upon in records.

I.e., Harry and Rose are most likely Hersh (or Gersh, Hirsch, Hersz,
etc.) and Ruchl (I'd say also Rosa, eventhough the daughter took on
that name in English). Goodman is probably GUTMAN. Wolf is possibly WULF.

Also, be sure too look in nearby towns, or really any other matches in
databases that seem to come pretty close to the info you have. That is,
there is really no reason to think they were always in Lviv, so keep
options open (though, Poland and Ukraine would be best bets--perhaps
Lithuania and Belarus wouldnt be too far afield). Also consider that
though the date you have is "exact", it may have just been adopted as an
exact date at some later time for use in American records. So, if you see
an 1865 birth, for instance, don't reject it immediately.

Can you help me! My gmother,Rosa(Chage)Wolf was born in Lemberg,Austria
to a Harry and Rose Wolf (Goodman) on February 2, 1869 This is all that
I know.I know that it is no longer a part of Austria-that it is called
Lwow,Poland or Lviv, Ukraine and have written to both places and still
at ground zero after four or five years searching. Thank you for your
effort.
