Does anyone know if there was a similar organization in Galicia before
World War One or in the area that used to be Galicia between the wars
(1920-1935)?

Russian Military History Question #ukraine

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello everyone,

I know that my gg and ggg-grandfathers made a living supplying the Russian
army with provisions, primarily food, at the Modlin fortress near Warsaw.
According to family sources, my ggg-grandfather's surname was originally
ZOLOTNIK (an old Russian measure of weight) and was >from the Volhynia
gubernia but followed the Russian army to Modlin. Based on historical
research, I suspect this may have been during the 1831 Polish uprising
against Russian rule; however, he could have arrived earlier or later than
that. >from vital records around 1850, I also recently learned that someone
who I think was my ggg-grandfather's brother was first a soldier (zolnierz)
and then a musician (muzykant) with the First Sapper Reserve Battalion
stationed at Modlin. Any information or recommendations for researching
these two occupations, the fortress, troop movements >from Volhynia to
Warsaw, and this particular battalion would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

Sincerely,

Searching GOLDBERG in Praetoria (or elsewhere) & STAROLETNI #southafrica

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear South Africa SIG,

Hi, I'm new to the group & have joined it to find these two families. One
will be far easier to find than the other.

GOLDBERG
--------
Ronnie Goldberg was born in 1933 in London & married Eva Bart. They had two
sons, Keith G Goldberg & Sean Goldberg. Ronnie & Eva later divorced & he
died of a stomach ulcer in 1980. Eva took the boys & moved to South Africa,
we think to Praetoria. Does anyone know them? Does anyone have any ideas on
how to find them?

STAROLETNI
----------
This search is much older. Chaim Lejb Staroletni was born in Radzilow,
Poland in 1861/2. He married Rochla Leja Rzeczko (b.1866/7) & they had at
least 2 children: Feimal Staroletni (b.1886/7, Poland) & Jankiel Staroletni
(b. 17 May 1893, Wysokie Mazowieckie, Poland). Feimal came >from "Mazoweck"
through Ellis Island on 5 Feb 1904, heading to meet his father, who lived at
26577 Madison St, New York. It is believed the family went on to South
Africa, though I've no idea where. I appreciate this is a stab in the dark,
but anything's worth a shot.

Does any of this ring any bells? Many thank to you all, & Shabbat Shalom,

Leon Moss <leon.moss@...>
 

I am another 'name change'.
I was born Mofsowitz. My father changed the family name in 1937 for the
reason 'that we were living in Pretoria and it was highly anti-semitic'. The
relevant excerpt >from the Government Gazette is pasted on my birth
certificate.

Now in Australia #southafrica

Dear Listers,

It will come as no surprise to many
that a great number of SA Jewish =

people have emigrated to Australia.

I find many of my newly-found rellies
are here in Sydney, others in Perth
& elsewhere in Australia.

If people think it's useful, we could try
to get a list of those here. I can help
trace people through the phone books
if you email me names.

There was at one time, a website
devoted to transplanted Jewish South
Africans. It is not now in use.

And I hope to attend the Washington conference.

Name changes #southafrica

Colin Plen
 

I have not come across many name changes but lots and lots of name =
alterations.I know of two brothers whose surnames are respectively =
orleow and orelowitz. The name Gilchrist has already been documented.
The names Alswang - Olswang - Olschwang - are all different familties =
but I think must have a common ancestor.

Louis Zetler <zetler@...>
 

I have never studied the laws to the change of names in South Africa, but in
about the 1890's it appears to have been quite an easy exercise. Tradition
has it that the brother of my mother's maternal grandfather bought a
business known as Berkowitz Bicycles or something similar and instead of
changing the name of the business, he changed his surname to Berkowitz. He
told his brother that he had changed his surname and so my ggf also arrived
as Berkowitz. Now I am still trying to establish what the original surname
was!
