passover customs/ Galicia #galicia

Chana Thompson-Shor <chthompson@...>
 

My last name is Shor; I learned that the only continuously-observant
branch of my family (originally >from Galicia) uses ginger rather than
horseradish on the seder plate, and eats kitniyot (beans, rice) on
Passover, much as sephardic Jews do. They say this is the custom the
family came with >from "the old country". These customs were something
of a surprise, as I'd always been under the impression that we were
thoroughly Ashkenazic, but the details of the family history are a
little fuzzy. Is anyone on this list familiar with these customs among
Galitzianer families (or anyone else Ashkenazi, for that matter... a
bonus if you're a Shor.)

Thank you

Chana Shor

Before visiting, you can try to find street addresses (especially in Lviv)
where your relatives worked or lived by searching old business and telephone
directories via www.kalter.org/search.

1921/1922 directory of Polish joint stock companies #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A 1921/1922 directory of Polish joint stock companies has recently been made
available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska
(www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=30391). This directory contains
historical and economic information about Polish joint stock companies,
including, for most, the names of their directors and/or managers. The
directory is organized by type of business, and includes an index by
business name and an index by town. However, there is no index by personal
name, so I have made the directory searchable at www.kalter.org/search.
Instructions for viewing pages of the directory containing matches to search
terms can be found in the FAQ of the search site
(www.kalter.org/searchfaq.html).

Hi All,

I've posted a high resolution document that's a LDS microfilm >from Dabie,
Poland. I think the year is 1872 and the document mentions my great
grandfather Szrul Rozental.

If some knowledgeable genners can translate >from Russian to English, I would
greatly appreciate it.

I'm not sure whether its a birth, death or marriage document. Any and all
details you can glean >from it are greatly appreciate. Nothing is too small
to be useful at this point.

The document can be seen at

Re: Town of Hertza - Adolph/Abraham GREENBERG #general

Hi, Genners,

Sarah Greenberg has written, in part:

<I have tried unsuccessfully to find my
great-grandfather on the Ellis Island ship
manifests... He was >from Romania, but I do nor know
what part. The name on the papers looks like
(Hertza). His wife was
also >from Romania and I believe she was >from a town
called (daraboy/darahoy)...>

Now I wanted to confirm for Sarah that her
great-grandmother was >from Dorohoi, currently Romania,
but at the time of immigration a part of Bukovina,
which was the eastern-most crown land of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire. Dorohoi is situated at
47°57' 26°24', just about 32 miles southeast of
Chernivtsi/Czernowitz [the Bukovinian capital, often
refered to as 'Little Vienna' due to its refinement
and culture].

While looking at the mapquest map, I noticed a small
place [town, village, shtetl, dorf?!?! - please,
don't] located halfway between Cz and Dorohoi named
Herca. This could potentially be the place where
Sarah's great-grandfather was born/had lived.

I tried it in Shtetl-seeker, but it's not there. And
as the town is currently within the borders of
Ukraine, there are no locations starting with 'H' for
that country on the Shtetl-seeker list. BTW, none of
the 'G' starting locations are the town, either.

What I would like to know - why are the maps using
spellings with 'H' if the country where the town is
located doesn't recognize that letter? And for those
with more knowledge of the pronounciation of the local
geography, could this be the town her greatgrandfather
mentions?

AS always, you wisdom, thoughts and humor are most
welcome,
Shellie Wiener
