Help- NYC/Brooklyn adoptions, 1928-1930 #general

Jerry Krassner
 

My great uncle in Brooklyn, NY had 2 adopted daughters, born 1920 and 1928
(according to the 1930 census). It is possible one or both is still
living. Is there some way of accessing NYC adoption records for the
younger daughter (which would cover 1928-1930)? I don't have any
additional information other than what is on the 1930 census (ie their
first names, and the fact that their father(s?) were Russian born but my
great uncle was born in NYC). Thanks for any advice-- Jerry Krassner

First, I want to thank all of you wonderful people for your prompt and
generous response and help with regard to the question of the number of
surname records on each of the FHC library catalog microfilm reels.

Once again, this Group came through with flying colors.

The response I'm going with is an estimated 500 cards on each reel,
allowing 15 minutes to go through each reel. I hope to give a report to
the Group on this search once I get the reels.

Again, my thanks to all of you.

SZACHER / SCHACHER-Poland #general

Lilli Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

It has come to my attention recently that my mother's mother's mother's
family, >from Ciechanow, Poland, were originally named SZACHER (SCHACHER
in English). When they came to the United States, one of the brothers,
probably during the naturalization process, renamed the family SOLOMON.

Is there anyone who has come across family in Ciechanow named SZACHER /
SCHACHER?

Thanks.

Hi
My grandfather, Pesach/Philip POZHEZHINSKI was born in Brest-Litovsk in
1897 to his parents Aaron (Leib)/Arky and Sara Hinde/ Annie RABINOWITZ.
In 1893 Aaron traveled on his own to join his Uncle Oscar/Usher ROZENBERG
in the US. He is recorded as leaving Hamburg and arriving in Ellis Island.
He returned to Brest-Litovsk and married Sara Hinde having two children-
my grandfather and his sister Chana Zelda/Anna. They then returned to
America, sometime between 1899-1902.
My great-aunt Gussie was born in 1902-03 in NY. On arrival (or soon after)
the name was changed to ROZINSKI/ROZINSKY/ROSINSKI.
I cannot find the arrival of these individuals in EIDB. I've checked all
the combinations I can think of for family names. I've even tried general
searches, "Starting with P" and "Starting with R" etc.
What could I possibly do next?????

Re: Pisha Paysha Hand Game Remembered #galicia

My grandparents were >from Lithuania and the Suwalk-Lomza area and they too
taught me the card game pisha paysha altho' in their Lithuanian accented
Yiddish it was called 'Pishy Payshie'. It was as you say a very simple
form of rummy.

Patche patche kichelach was a favourite rhyme with actions when I was a
very small child.

I remember pisha paysha very well, and I taught it to my daughter when she
was old enough to begin to learn the hand/finger coordination. It was
probably taught to my mother by her mother. They came >from eastern galicia
also. My grandmother was born in Buchach, and then grew up in Podhajce. My
mother was born in Sloweta. My father also knew the game, so it may have
come to my >from my Litvak ancestors of Mahalin and Smolensk.

Hand games #galicia

Dear Genners!

Carole Glick Feinberg asked about a hand game using a string. I don't think
this is Galician game. I was born (in the 60's)and grew up in Sweden in a
very non-jewish way and we used to play this game too. We called it "ta
hand" which means "take a hand". My guess is that this game was played in
many countries.

"Pisha Paysha" Revisited #galicia

Carole Glick Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Dear Fellow Galicianers,

So many of you wonderful people sent me responses and
corrected my faulty memory. "Pisha paysha" is, indeed, a
card game, not the name of the string game that many of
you refer to as "Cat's Cradle." Yes, it appears to be
played universally.

The name of the string game my grandmother taught us is
"ettel bettel". Sorry for the confusion.

Best wishes,
