Litwak #galicia

Henry Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

Dear Galicia Researchers,

In June 1895 on the board of the ship Veendam >from Rotterdam arrived to
NY Ellis Island David Litwak, 43 years old, born in Russian / Ukrainian shtetl.

With him was 21 years old Hersh Litwak, probably his nephew, and my
maternal grandfather. Hersh was born in 1874 in a town of Talnoye, son of
Mordka and Sosha Litwak. With them there was also 19 years old Chaje
Litwak (perhaps sister of Hersh).

All I know that Hersh returned to Galicia (now Ukraine), since ten years
later his eldest son (and my uncle) was born in Letychiv, then my Mother
(in Zagrobela, near Tarnopol), and in 1910 my younger uncle in Dyczkow
(near Tarnopol).

Whether the other two persons returned with him and what happened to
them I have no clue. I did not find anything in the naturalization records
(but only few were available). If they returned to Russia should any record
exist? Like the boat Manifest, but **from** USA?

I have spent many years in vain searching for them. I would appreciate any
suggestion.

Many thanks in advance,
Henry Gruder

Joseph,

There is no mystery about the "larger town". This town was Lubaczow,
the district's capital, where Narol was located.

Lubaczow records, with the notable exception of the births records
for the short period of 1857-1876, didn't survive.

There are 500 entries related to town Narol in the JRI-P database; the
majority of those entries are within Lwow Province for such larger
towns in Lubaczow's vicinity as Sokal, Rawa Ruska, Uhnow and Zolkiew.

In JRI-P database at

http://jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm

Select "town" entry in the "data type" window.

Another location of Narol's names is 1929 Poland Business Directory at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?0742 and
http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?0743

Hope this helps,

JewishGen: Complex Genealogy in the U.S. Course beginning March 23 #romania

Phyllis Kramer
 

Looking for someone in the U.S.?
If despite basic online research you have not yet found the Hebrew
names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant, consider a focus on
the more complex documents our ancestors generated including
Naturalization, Passports, Death Records (Probate, Obituaries,
Cemeteries), Newspapers, City Directories, Immigration Ports other
than Ellis Island, Major Archives and Libraries, Military and
Government Records.
We're proud of our Education FORUM where students are encouraged to
post one ancestral branch, and the instructor will respond with
answers to questions and suggestions on avenues to research; this
monthlong personal Mentoring process is unique and quite valuable.

Please see the description for requirements, dates and tuition at

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Here are two often humorous accounts >from the Yizkor book of Yedintzi
(Edinet) Bessarabia about two of the common occupations for Jews in
the shtetls - butchers and water carriers. The butchers, aside >from
supplying their wares to customers, "themselves used to like feasting
and enjoying meals with varenikes, meat-filled knishes, and dairy
bagels that used to swim in oil or butter. They themselves were broad-
shouldered, with stuffed bellies and their wives were also rolly-polly,
heavy-set." As for the water carriers, "their water-carrying was
dramatic. During the winter frosts long icicles would hang down >from
their barrels and cans, just as they did >from the roofs." They also had
to deal with young pranksters who would like to sneak up on them and
pull the cork >from their barrels.
