~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeffrey,

The Polish name of this small village is Liskowate. To pinpoint the
location, go to the JewishGen Gazetteer at
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp, and enter
Liskowate, Poland. You will see that place is located at 4931 2237 at
Poland's SE corner, directly on the Ukrainian border.

The earliest information about the village says that in the year 1880
the place had 1,088 Ukrainian residents; no data on Jewish residents
with the exception of the information that a homestead had 5
residents.

During the 1900 Austrian census, 1,399 residents of Liskowate were
registered, amongst them 61 Jewish souls. In addition, as already
listed previously, 4 Jewish residents were identified as part of a
homestead.

In 1921, during the first post-WWI Poland independent census,
Liskowate's total residency number was 1,541 folks, including 67 Jews.

You can review names of Liskowate business people registered during
the 1921 census:

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?0682

There appear to be listed such Jewish names as GROSSINGER,
SZAINER and SOMMERS.

Currently, the village population is very small; the latest census
quotes 210 residents.

Hope this helps,

My article about the short lived Jewish community in Port Said, Egypt

My main findings are that the first Jewish settlers there were >from
Galicia, followed by Jews >from Aden, the Ottoman Empire and the
Russian Empire. A partial list of rabbis who served the community is
included.

Shall be glad to receive corrections and additions.

How to get Lodz Cemetery Records Indexes jpg images #lodz #poland

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi there,
I once inquired about how do I obtain the mentioned JPG images in Lodz
Cemetery record indexes.

Someone told me to contact a lady that used to work there, named
Malgorzata, I did so in 2011 but never got a response (to the best of
my knowledge).

Did someone ever get such images ? How ? Are they available only upon
payment ?


Some of the records I am interested, for example:

KAHANA Zysa aja Section L-V Row 3 Grave 219 Side
L04-Jan-194178MachelRegister Page #: 19 Image #: P1020550.JPG
KANO Dawid Section P-V Row 4 Grave 26C Side

Weisse karte - Jeanette Landesberg #general

Jonathan Naor <jonathan.naor@...>
 

Hello,

My great-grandparents, Jeanette and Philipp Landesberg were in Ghetto
Trembowla in 1942-3 after being deported >from Cologne.

On a request for information regarding my great-grandmother submitted
to the World Jewish Congress in 1946, some unknown person wrote
something about a "Weisse Karte". I wondered if somebody knew what
that meant.

I have a photo of the document; regrettably it is not possible to attach it.

Thank you,

Jonathan Naor

Location of a grave in London #general

Daniel Gleek
 

I am stumped with a seemingly easy one. Can you help?

I am trying to find the grave of a relative called Jacob C BOTCHEN (aka
BOTCHIN). He was born 1875/6 (Russ) and died Dec 1918 in Whitechapel,
London, England.

from this, logic tells me he is most likely buried in England. However,
I cannot find him on the Federation, United or Western burial grounds in
London. Either I am doing something wrong, one of the names is incorrect
or he vanished!

I am not in contact with the descendants of his children, who might have
known. His kids were born between 1905-18 and were called Rosie, Harry,
Izzy, Yetta, Rachel and David.

Thanks to anyone who can save my sanity with this one.
Please reply privately.

Thanks,

Re: Is Naftali often a Hebrew rendition to the Yiddish Hersh? #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

Hersh is Yiddish and Tzvi and Naphtali are Hebrew--all refer to "deer". I
believe a Hebrew name on a gravestone is more commonly used. Sometimes a
person has both a Hebrew name and a Yiddish name and each is used in different
situations. Often a person has only a Yiddish name.
