There almost always are discrepancies with ages in these records. My
grandparents were >from Lithuania and their ages are all over the map >from
record to record. It was not as important to them as it is to us - no
Social Security or Medicare eligibility at 65 so once someone was past bar/
bas mitzvah they really didn't pay much attention to age. Even here in the
U.S., one woman in my family aged only seven years every 10 year census
cycle :).

I have just received 5 marriage certificates and one birth
certificate >from the Grodzisk Branch of the Polish Archives. They all
relate to my INDYK family >from Wiskitki and date >from 1877 to 1897.
They are all in old Cyrillic and the copies are of variable quality.
The marriage partners are FRYDRYCH, LACHMAN and BEREK.

As Viewmate is currently off-line I am wondering if anyone would be
kind enough to assist me with translations. I am able to send in
either graphic format or in PDF.

I would be very grateful for any assistance. Please email me directly

JewishGen is pleased to announce an update to its burial registry,
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR). Approximately

added. At
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm>
there is a complete listing of the 2,033 cemeteries and plots in the
searchable database, comprising 1,074,427 records.

Noteworthy additions to the database are:

-Basavilbaso, Argentina: 1,653 records
-Iasi, Romania: 18,000 new records
-Petach Tikvah/Segulah Cemetery, Israel: 2,900 additional records and
6,100 photos

Re: Why go to Bad Kudowa? #general

Sue Clamp <clamp@...>
 

david rubin wrote:
<snipped>

What I'm trying to say is that I havent seen where
anyone has answered the original question based on
personal visits to Bad Kudowa, or some acceptable
history on this place. Instead everyone is just
making assumptions that all Spas are the same.

Maybe this place was more about socialization than
the waters like another person mentioned? Or
maybe for the fancy accomidations and food? But I'm
just guessing since I've never been there.
I've done some research on this and it seems that Bad Kudowa was the
place to go if you had heart or circulation problems. The hotel where my
grandmother stayed also happened to be "strictly kosher", so that
obviously had some appeal. In 1922, at the time of the visit, my
grandmother was in her 40s, and although she did have a heart problem
when she died, that wasn't until 1951. Could she have been unwell enough
from this in 1922 to warrant a visit to a spa for a "cure"? Would a
person who was unwell have undertaken such a long trip in any case? I
estimate that >from London to Bad Kudowa might have taken at least three
days by boat and train.

Some have suggested that visits to spas were sometimes prescribed by
doctors. If such a prescription had been made by a doctor in London, I
feel sure it would have been to a spa much nearer to home!

I have to conclude that there must have been some other reason to go to
Bad Kudowa. It has been suggested that other family members (SKOWRONEK)
may have also gone or been there and that Kudowa was a convenient
central point for them all to meet (not so convenient for my
grandmother...) and, at the same time as "taking the waters" (perhaps
more for relaxation and fun than for health reasons), they were also
able to get together as family. I know my aunt (this grandmother's
daughter) was also there, but may also have visited Warsaw to see
members of the other side of the family (ROSENBERG/HERSZENKRUG) and also
found herself passing through Berlin, visiting my great-uncle (Israel
SKOWRONEK), en route to Kudowa. Israel was also due to go to Kudowa
*after* my grandmother had been there (a postcard he wrote suggests
this). This suggests to me that somebody >from the family was either in
Kudowa in the longer term, or actually lived there.

Like David, I feel there have been a lot of general comments about spas,
and some speculation, and I imagine the moderators must be thinking
the thread should be drawing to a close. Unless anyone has recognised
anybody in the photograph that I uploaded to my web site
( http://www.clamp.dsl.pipex.com/gen20.html ), or has some specific
details about Bad Kudowa or the Hotel Austria, about which they can
email me privately, I think this thread has come to the end of its
useful life :-)

Thank you to everyone for their very useful comments!

What I'm trying to say is that I havent seen where
anyone has answered the original question based on
personal visits to Bad Kudowa, or some acceptable
history on this place. Instead everyone is just
making assumptions that all Spas are the same.

Maybe this place was more about socialization than
the waters like another person mentioned? Or
maybe for the fancy accomidations and food? But I'm
just guessing since I've never been there.
I've done some research on this and it seems that Bad Kudowa was the
place to go if you had heart or circulation problems. The hotel where my
grandmother stayed also happened to be "strictly kosher", so that
obviously had some appeal. In 1922, at the time of the visit, my
grandmother was in her 40s, and although she did have a heart problem
when she died, that wasn't until 1951. Could she have been unwell enough
from this in 1922 to warrant a visit to a spa for a "cure"? Would a
person who was unwell have undertaken such a long trip in any case? I
estimate that >from London to Bad Kudowa might have taken at least three
days by boat and train.

Some have suggested that visits to spas were sometimes prescribed by
doctors. If such a prescription had been made by a doctor in London, I
feel sure it would have been to a spa much nearer to home!

I have to conclude that there must have been some other reason to go to
Bad Kudowa. It has been suggested that other family members (SKOWRONEK)
may have also gone or been there and that Kudowa was a convenient
central point for them all to meet (not so convenient for my
grandmother...) and, at the same time as "taking the waters" (perhaps
more for relaxation and fun than for health reasons), they were also
able to get together as family. I know my aunt (this grandmother's
daughter) was also there, but may also have visited Warsaw to see
members of the other side of the family (ROSENBERG/HERSZENKRUG) and also
found herself passing through Berlin, visiting my great-uncle (Israel
SKOWRONEK), en route to Kudowa. Israel was also due to go to Kudowa
*after* my grandmother had been there (a postcard he wrote suggests
this). This suggests to me that somebody >from the family was either in
Kudowa in the longer term, or actually lived there.

Like David, I feel there have been a lot of general comments about spas,
and some speculation, and I imagine the moderators must be thinking
the thread should be drawing to a close. Unless anyone has recognised
anybody in the photograph that I uploaded to my web site
( http://www.clamp.dsl.pipex.com/gen20.html ), or has some specific
details about Bad Kudowa or the Hotel Austria, about which they can
email me privately, I think this thread has come to the end of its
useful life :-)

Thank you to everyone for their very useful comments!
