I just wanted to say a quick thank you to the Moderator at JewishGen for
providing me with Francois' email address. I have already had responses
from two people plus Francois, himself. JewishGenners are among the most
wonderful people I've ever met. Thank you. Marilen Pitler


Names Chaje and Chajake #general

barrychernick@...
 

from a ships passenger list for part of my family coming from
Russia/Ukraine in 1908 I have these two given names. There is some
confusion as to who was on the ship.
Is "Chaje" a male or female name and what are possible Americanized
versions.
And
Is "Chajake" a male or a female name and what are possible Americanized
versions
Thank You

Seeking Shmuel KATZ near Lvov #ukraine

Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz <Shmuel@...>
 

I am seeking information on Shmuel KATZ in Gologury, in the Tarnopol
province of Galician Poland about 20 km East of Lvov.

The town was known as Lemberg during A-H Empire. I understand that it
is now in Ukraine.

I believe that he was either a Rabbi or >from a rabbinical family.
