Town of Zniesienie in Galacia. #galicia

Susan Miller
 

I am seeking information about the town of Zniesienie, Lwow district,Galicia.  I am researching an individual who was born there in 1887 and immigrated anywhere from 1900 to 1994.   I have failed to find information on Jewish Gen and have found meagre results on Google searches.

Thank you for any assistance!

When you say that Jews sent money home through the post do you know if they sent cash, or was the money sent in other forms such as Western Union? Today sending cash through the post is discouraged because it can easily go missing.

This book seems to be about  Kamieniec Litewski in Poland, rather than Kamenets-Podolsk in Ukraine?

Hello,

I am unable to provide information regarding the specific line of inquiry, however, I would like to provide additional information which may be of interest. I am currently reading, Journey to a Nineteenth-century Shtetl: The Memoirs of Yekhezkel Kotik. Kotik was born about 1848 and grew up in Kamenets, the son and grandson of an influential family. His memoirs about growing up in Kamenets provide insight into what life was like at that time and place. It would be an interesting read for anyone with roots to Kamenets. Here is more about the book:

Looking for Arsonist’s Family #usa

Jeff Marx
 

In 1896, the NY papers were filled with the sensational news of Isaac Zucker/Zuker, who headed a gang of arsonists, and who was sentenced to 36 years at Sing Sing prison. I’m writing an article about him and trying to track down his descendants. However, I cannot find his wife and children in the 1900 and subsequent censuses, while Isaac is in prison.

The family is found in the 1880 US (Phil) census “Isaac Zeucker” and in the 1895 NJ state census (“Isaac Zuker”). Newspaper accounts list his children as Willie, Annie, Charlie, another daughter, and wife (Rosa or Rachel), a brother, Abraham Zuker, and state that Isaac was born c. 1847/48 and came to the US around 1878.  

Any of you super sleuths able to help with this?

Re: Brick wall - Great-Grandmother from Kamenetz, Podolsk, Russia #russia #poland

The Becker's Email
 

Your  tree has the marriage record of Harry Blinder to Bessie Weissman.

Ancestry has a NJ marriage index record for an Issie Gold to Bessie Weissman in 1913.  I suggest you order the marriage record.  If this is correct, then it is possible Bessie's naturalization record that Bessie arrived as Ida Gold is incorrect, although...It appears she and Issie may have been from the same place as his WWI draft registration gives his place of birth as Kanunity (?), Podolski,  Russia. So maybe they married in Russia and then had a US marriage.... 
The original marriage record may list her parents' names.

Also suggest you obtain Bessie's original marriage record to Harry Blinder to see if it confirms that her maiden name was Weissman and any other pertinent info such as was she listed as a widow or divorced. If her marital status (e.g. widow/divorced) is given, then you can use that to find Issie/Isadore Gold.

Would also suggest you obtain the original birth record for Matilda, again to see if it gives Bessie's maiden name.

Once you have confirmed Bessie's name before her first marriage, look for her on ship's manifests under that surname.  I would suggest you don't input a first name but look for where young females w/ that surname and likely first names were from and where they were going as that may help you find Bessie.

Re: Sending money to Poland in 1880s #general #usa #poland

Bruce Drake
 

This is not a "from Point A to Point B" explanation but if it is of any help, here's an example from the the Yizkor book of Svencionys, Lithuania titled "“Fayvl the Mailman.” I've seen other accounts that said the money was sent to the town's rabbi.:

"The great immigration at the end of the nineteenth century scattered thousands of Jewish children across the wide world. In America and in Canada, in Africa and in France, Jewish immigrants were to be found everywhere, but they never forgot where they came from and whom they had left behind in Europe. They sent money home for their parents and for their brothers and sisters, but collecting the money from the post office was very complicated.
When one received the notice from the post office, one had to go to the notary to have one's signature confirmed. Since not everyone could write Russian, they had to go to a 'writer,' and that could cost money. It was a difficult and lengthy process."

Bruce Drake

Jews looked for ways around such problems, and it was decided that it would be best if relatives sent the money directly to Reb Fayvl's address. As a civil servant working in the post office, he was indeed given the money with no problem."


Re: For researching ZIONTZ family - seeking a contact person for the Galil Genealogical Society in Israel #holocaust #israel #poland #russia #belarus

David Ziants
 

1) As a continuation of this thread, I want to first mention that someone emailed me privately with the information that New York birth records are not publicly available. I see that there is an organisation:-

https://www.reclaimtherecords.org/

and I see a link to New york that they succeeded to have these records online. Does anyone know whether there is a search engine or how does one locate a particular record or name?

2) I tried contacting Kibbutz Mizra, to see if they can put me in touch with Tali's family, but have yet to receive a response. I also could not reach any of the phone numbers I found in the Israeli white pages. 

3) Regarding having relatives in the USA and Canada, a second cousin of mine very recently told me that his grandmother mentioned when she was alive that there were cousins who migrated to the USA and Canada - but he does not know the names. There is a story that one of these was killed in a lift (elevator) accident sometime during the 20th century.

4) I want to share publically part of my correspondece with the late Samuel ZIONTS in 2007 (this was a number of years after his daughter Tali passed away). The caps are his, and part of my original posting above is a summary from this. As I already mentioned, what he says COMMUNITZ is no doubt Kamenetz.  There is also no proof that he is specifically referring to my great-grandparents because there was also another ZIANTS family in the UK who we do not know as our relatives and they did not know us, when we inquired. On the other hand, he might be, and am not bothered to find out this, despite the family rift that is described. 

I tried searching Yad Vashem archives (can now be done via JRI-Poland), but could not find any ZIONTS/ZAJAC entries that correlate with the names Samuel gave, but with no success.

Maybe  I missed something so is there anyone here who doesn't mind having a quick search as one never knows. I assume that the relatives he mentioned who perished were Morris's siblings and parents but this is also a bit ambiguous. 

Thank you in advance.

David

 

       MY FATHER, MORRIS ZIONTZ, CAME FROM COMMUNITZ LITOVSK, NORTH OF WARSAW POLAND IN 1923
TO NEW YORK. HE HAD RELATIVES THAT WENT TO ENGLAND. HE WANTED TO GO TO ENGLAND BUT THEY COULD NOT AFFORD HIS FARES. HE BECAME VERY ANGRY AND AS FAR AS I KNOW HE HAD NO MORE DEALINGS WITH THEM.
HIS FATHER'S NAME WAS JOSEPH. THERE WAS A BROTHER DAVID ZIONTZ WHO PLAYED A TRUMPET.
THE FAMILY WERE FIVE SISTERS AND TWO BROTHERS
TWO SISTERS WERE KILLED IN LODZ AND THE OTHERS IN AUSHWITZ CONCENTRATION CAMP, INCLUDING HIS MOTHER AND FATHER.
        I REMEMBER BIALISTOCK BECAUSE HE ENJOYED HIMSELF WHEN HE WAS YOUNG AND SPOKE ABOUT THE
SHTETEL.
Thank you very much in advance.

Thanks for your response. 
A kind lady, Robbin Maggid, said she would see if there was anything available off-line. She said to be patient because she's up to her armpits in alligators right now, which I totally understand.
As long as I've still got the right party, I'm good.

Really appreciate the help and responsiveness. So many of my grand discoveries over the years have been with the help Jewish Gen.

MNJGS Dec 12 Virtual Meeting 1:00 - 2:00 PM central. "Mining the Manifest" presented by Susan Weinberg #records #education #announcements

casson123@...
 

On December 12, 2021, from 1:00 PM-2:00 PM (CDT) the Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society will host Susan Weinberg, presenting "Mining the Manifest."

 After 1906, immigration manifests offer a wealth of information, but what do you do if your family came over prior to that time? And how did they get from New York to Minnesota?  We will take a look at derivative naturalization documents, trace contacts they were going to through the NY vital records and follow immigrants who found their route through Canada. Once in New York, we will explore how you can follow their journey to Minnesota.  Using a case approach this presentation will explore some of the search challenges associated with immigration in the 1800s and early 1900s as well as locating immigrants where there are name changes and variable spellings. Techniques will address working back from other documents, resolving conflicting data and identifying and linking the person to whom an immigrant is traveling. 

 Speaker Bio

 Susan Weinberg is an artist, writer and professional genealogist. She enjoys solving puzzles and telling stories and genealogy offers her many opportunities to do so. Weinberg serves as President of the Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society (MNJGS) and is on the board of the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest and the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS). She is the author of We Spoke Jewish: A Legacy in Stories, a book based on the stories of Jewish elders in Minnesota. Her research has taken her to archives and ancestral towns in Poland, Belarus, the Ukraine and Lithuania as well as to Holocaust records in Germany. As a volunteer with Jewishgen.org, she creates websites on ancestral towns and can often be found photographing tombstones in the overgrown cemeteries in Eastern Europe.

Need help with block related to my Vogel/Fogel ancestors #general

Ed Vogel
 

My paternal grandfather was known in the USA as Bennie Fogel, although in some censuses the family was listed as Vogel.  My grandmother was Dworje(Dora) Ferber.  My father’s name was Max Vogel.  His siblings were Harry Fogel, Henrietta(Yettie) Fogel and Isadore Vogel.  Bennie’s parents were Mordka(Mordechai) Shimshon Fogel and Sura(Sarah) Spaser.  Dworje’s parents were Zvi Elimelech(Harry) Ferber and Rebecca Feuermann.  Until a few years ago that’s all the information I had.  Then I was pointed to birth records in jewishgen for the children of Mordechai and Sura; David, Jakob and Mariem Scheine.  David appears to be my grandfather, as the birthdates match.  The records show the siblings as all being born in a village called Zabie.  I am blocked on this information.  I would appreciate any help anyone can provide.  Thanks in advance.
