GOLDBERG families of Kolki, Gorodok or Horodok in Wolyn Ukraine #ukraine

CAROLYNR
 

Dear List-servers...
I am looking for anyone with relatives who lived in or left >from Kolki or
Gorodok (perhaps Horodok) in Volyn (Wolyn) Ukraine, circa 1890-1920. I am
trying to learn anything possible about the GOLDBERG families, who lived
there or came to the US or Canada, perhaps living a while in Liverpool or
London. My family details are on my website photo page for GOLDBERG. There is
a Yizkor book translation in process, I believe, but am not sure what the
status is right now.
Thank you in advance.
Please contact me directly if not appropriate for the list.

Wiring money to the Polish archives with no bank charge #general

Arnold Davidson
 

from time to time messages are posted regarding the Polish archives'
requirement that payment for copies of archived records must be wired to
their account in Poland. The bank fees for wiring these payments often
far exceed the actual payment and people have devised various methods
for reducing those bank fees, such as, bundling several requests >from
different people into one order.

I think it would be interesting, informative, and helpful to recount my
recent personal experience in this matter. In 2007, I found a record of
interest in the Bialystok archive. After an exchange of correspondence
with the archives, over several months, I received a letter with payment
instructions saying that the cost of sending me a copy of the record
would be $6.10. My bank wanted to charge me $40 to wire the $6.10
payment, as instructed.

After following through on various messages posted on JewishGen, I
joined a group that was sending a joint order. Everyone else got their
order, I didn't get mine but it didn't cost me anything because of the
generosity of the organizer of the group. Nevertheless, I was reluctant
to join in another group order.

About a month ago, Nicolas T. wrote that he could wire money (in euros)
to the Polish archives' account through his bank, at no charge. All I
needed to do was provide him with the relevant document reference
number, the wiring instructions, and the archive fee in euros. I
emailed the Bialystok archives, who provided me with the necessary
information by return email in a matter of days (not months as in 2007)
and said that the cost for an email scan of the record was 75 cents.
Quite a bit less than the $6.10 in 2007 but my bank would still charge
about $40 to wire the 75 cents.

I emailed the information to Nicolas, who immediately instructed his
bank to wire the money to the archives, and I received a scan of the
record, by email, two days later.

Nicolas is still generously offering to wire money for genealogical
records to the Polish archives, through his bank, at no charge.
Obviously, there are arrangements to reimburse him for cost of the
records. Anyone who is interested may contact me privately to obtain
his contact information.

KOSOWETSKY from Fastov and Montreal #general

Linda Shefler
 

A few years ago I tried to make sense of the Samuel COSTOWETSKY family that
settled in Montreal about 1906; alas, without any success. There seemed to
be two Samuel COSTOWETSKY and both seemed to be married to a Fannie. I
didn't know the names of their children, so in spite of the wonderful
Montreal Directories, cemetery records and a few other resources (like
Jewish records), I still drew a blank. I even tried Costow which was what
the name was changed to by some people in Philadelphia.

I now have additional information on this family and wonder if this will
help. Shmuel (Sam) KOSTOVETSKY was born about 1866 in Fastov, Ukraine. In
1896 he worked as a master joiner in Fastov. As of 1907 he was living at
193 McGill Street in Montreal and he worked as a laborer. Shmuel was
married to Sara Brana SCHNAPARSKI who was born about 1876 in Pavoloch. They
had two children that I am aware of: Bluma (born about 1889) and Meir Leib
(born about 1892); both born in Fastov.

I believe that Bluma was the cousin that my grandfather was in love with;
according to the story, he used to visit her in Montreal, but her mother
wouldn't allow her to leave Canada (my grandfather lived in Providence,
Rhode Island), so their love affair came to an end and my grandfather
married my grandmother...luckily for me!

Is anyone familiar with Sam, Sara, Bluma or Meir Leib KOSOWETSKY? I believe
that Sam's father, Meir Leib, was born in Brusilov. That might be a helpful
hint for someone else interested in this family. I do have additional
information that isn't pertinent to this request, but might be helpful to
others researching the KOSTOWETSKY family; so if you are interested, please
feel free to contact me.

Any information on this family, any suggestions as to how to proceed,
anything really, would be greatly appreciated. Sara SCHNAPARSKI was the
sister of my great-grandfather and I would love to finally solve the
mysteries around this branch of the family!

Wishing everyone Shabbat shalom.
