Viewmate 6725/6/7: Haus # 18 in Rakolus (Hracholusky) #austria-czech

DKBern@...
 

Hello A-C SIG:

I have posted three excerpts >from the Rakolus Village Chronicle and will
sincerely appreciate a rough translation of the parts referring to Haus # 18.
This was a wood frame house that apparently burned down in 1934 and may have been
the home of my great grandparents in the early 1800s. The Viewmate numbers are:
VM6725 Haus #18 - 1
VM6726 Haus #18 - 2
VM6727 Haus #18 - 3

Many thanks for your help.

Thank you

Good Morning,
My father-in-law's surname is POSNER. His ancestry is unknown to him prior
to his grandfather's birth in South Africa in the mid 1800's. He supposes
that his family originated >from POZNAN due to the similarity in the family
and city names. Could there be any truth to this supposition?
Thank you in advance for your response.

Birth Record question #galicia

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Hi All,

I recently posted a page of Galician birth records >from December,
1894 on viewmate
(http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6690
&
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6691).
None of the births recorded on this page indicate a father. I'm
wondering if something was happening at the time (war or other
political unrest) which would cause this curious happening.

Thanks for any ideas on this subject you can offer.

Re: seeking Jay Karp #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

I quite often get an email in response to a posting such as the above, as
though I am making the enquiry.

I would have thought that it was obvious that as I am not the one making the
enquiry the emailer should be sending the email not to me - but to the
person with the enquiry.

I am not talking about something which is of general interest such as the
Canadian Census, where there might be a general point to discuss.

Clearly I have no personal knowledge of Jay Karp, and I have just suggested
the information based on what I have found on the Internet.

So if you have any knowledge about Jay Karp, please send them to Paul
Silverstone and not myself.

Looking for grandfather's birthplace - Lubashow? #general

bru53a@...
 

My grandparents are buried in the Mt Judah Cemetary in Ridgewood Queens NY.
The section they are buried in has a gate with the following words:
"Chevrah Neir Tomid Anshei Lubashow". I assume they were >from Lubashow.
I cant find Lubashow but I see a Lubaczow in Poland, Lubcha (Lyubcha) in
Belarus. They changed their name to STEIN after (i think) they came to NY. Their
original name was something like BOKELCHUK. First names are Elias (Eliah) and
Fannie (Fayga). We think Fannie was >from Drogichin in Belarus (west of Pinsk).
They lived on Henry St in Manhattan before moving to Boro Park in Brooklyn.
Anyone know how I can determine the correct Lubashow? I searched Ellis Island
data base but couldn't find any matches.
Thanks for any info
