Piotrkow Trybunalski Researchers - Where are you? #poland

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

Dear Piotrkow Trybunalski Researchers,

While the Polish State Archives indexing projects for Warsaw, Lodz,
Czestochowa, Bialystok, Radom and many other towns and cities have been
completely funded, those of us researching Piotrkow Trybunalski have not
contributed the remaining $349.98 necessary to complete the funding of our
town's indexing project.

There are 207 of us listed as Piotrkow Trybunalski researchers. I find it
hard to believe that we are any less interested in our town's vital records
than those researching other towns. But, sadly, that seems to be the case.
The indices for Piotrkow Trybunalski cover the years 1888-1904.

We welcome contributions of any amount. However, the complete Excel file of
the index for 1888-1904 is given to researchers who contribute a qualifying
contribution of $100.

There are a total of 1,798 surnames (with spelling variations) and dozens
for which there are more than 20 entries in the database.

A list of all surnames appearing in the Piotrkow Trybunalski indices is now
online at: http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/piotrkow_surn.htm

Contributions to "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland" may be made by check,
bank draft, money order, or credit card. Make sure to indicate that the
contribution is "For the Piotrkow Trybunalski Indexing Project." The web

German speaking volunteers for special Lodz project #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

JRI-Poland has embarked on a special Lodz project for
which German-speaking volunteers are required. (Even if
you are just comfortable with written German, that will be
sufficient.) Part of the project is translating titles on
the pages of digital images. The balance of the work is data
entry of the information into an Excel spreadsheet.

You will be able to work at home on your own computer
and have total flexibility over your time...even 30 minutes
a day will be a valuable contribution to the project.

Hi Cousins:

Benjamin Kubelsky was born in Chicago, Illinois on Valentine's Day in 1894.
He died on Dec 26, 1974. He was the oldest of two children of Mayer and
Emma. They lived in Waukegan. Mayer was born in Lithuania, the son of
Benjamin. Mayer was one of 5 children. I do not have the name of Jack's
grandparents, but his great grandfather is said to have been born in
Kubeldziski LITH in 1795. Jack married Sadye Marks on Jan 14, 1927 in the
Clayton Hotel in Waukegan, IL. They had one adopted daughter, Joan Naomi
Benny, born Jun 17, 1934. She was married three times. The first time to
Seth Baker. the second time to Buddy Rudolph. Each of those marriages
produced one child. She married Robert F. Blumofe, 25 years her senior in
1963. He passed away in 2003. They had 2 children, Robert and Joanna.

The Kubelskys are a branch of my daughter-in-law's maternal family, so I
would be interested if anyone has more information about his ancestry. I
have a lot of detail about his career and life. He changed his name several
times between his birth name and finally settling on the name Jack Benny.

Looking for info on Senya (Grisha) Ryndzyunski from Vilnius #lithuania

nathalieried@...
 

Shalom to all,

I would like to find information about Senya Ryndzyunski >from Vilnius, who was
the leader of a Jewish Communist resistance group in Vilnius during WW2.
All I know is that he later emigrated to Israel and was interviewed in yiddish
in Beer Sheva where he was living in the 1960's.

I can't read Hebrew or Russian well enough to look for him in other sites than
the English-speaking ones. I would be particularly interested in genealogical
information (his patronymic for instance).

Thanks in advance to all reseachers who are willing to share their
information with me,

Shavli (Siauliai) #lithuania

<< From: "Dr. Menahem Luz" <mervyn1@bezeqint.net>
Could anyone tell me whether the 19th century records for Jews in the town
of shavli (Siauliai) are so few because they were destroyed
or because they have not yet been transcribed\and or published on
jewishgen.org> >

Carol Baker, Siauliai District Coordinator, can probably give you a
better answer but, suffice to say, the majority of the Siauliai 19th
century records were destroyed over the years by fires, wars, floods,
thefts, etc. I believe that most, if not all, of the 19th century records
have been translated by LitvakSIG.

The Siauliai District Internal Passport records, 1919-1940 are in process
of being translated. If interested, please contact me privately.
