Rugby player #unitedkingdom

Steve Pickoltz
 

I'm trying to find any kind of information on a 1884 Rugby player who played
for the Northumberland team, against Yorkshire in the Rugby Union Football game.
The player's name was---- A. PICKHOLTZ. That is the only information I have
on him. This info came >from an old newspaper article in the sport section.

Origin of female name "Meimel" #general

Deborah Dworski
 

I have a female cousin whose Jewish name is Meimel. She was named after her
grandmother. She would like to know about the origin of this name, but I
haven't been able to find anything about it. I do see that there are about
thirty females with the name Meimel in the JRI-Poland Database, so it's not
unique, though it does seem rather unusual. Maybe it's a nickname, and I'm
just not making a mental association with the formal name?

Would anyone be able to help me?

Thank you in advance,
Deborah Dworski

Hi all. This is my first post here. My maternal grandfather's family has
deep roots in Bolechow. The one document that has long eluded us,
however, is the death certificate of his father, who died suddenly
while on vacation in the Carpathian mountain resort of Yaremche in
1912.

Yaremche does not appear to have had a large Jewish population,
and I'm having a hard time ascertaining where the certificate would
be. I'm not even sure if it's in Ukraine or Poland.

Relatedly, I have no frame of reference for what circumstances might
have been like in 1912. Is it likely he was buried there, where he died,
or would the body have been transported back to Bolechow? Where
would the closest Jewish cemetery to Yaremche have been?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jennifer,

Town Yaremche (Polish: Jaremcze) is located in the Nadvirna (Polish:
Nadworna) district of the Ivano-Frankivsk (Polish: Stanislawow)
Province of the western part of Ukraine.

The town is known as a spa and tourist attraction of the Eastern
Carpathians region, situated in the Prut River Valley near the
Hungarian and Romanian borders.

The Jewish population of this place was indeed small, and it was not
known to have an established Jewish community.

The town Jaremcze was connected by railway (rail line Stanislawow -
Woronienka) link to major towns in Galicia. Distance between towns
Bolechow and Jaremcze is about 83 miles, thus body was schlepped
by rail >from Jaremcze to Stanislawow, and >from Stanislawow to
Bolechow.

You can check Bolechow records through JRI-P database.

Re: Birth record that isn't one #galicia

Stephen Weinstein
 

There probably isn't an earlier "original" record. Many births simply
weren't recorded when they happened, for various reasons. Maybe
no one who knew of the birth was aware of the requirement to report
it to whomever was supposed to record it. Maybe if a baby wasn't
expected to live, they didn't see the point to recording the birth.
Maybe some parents felt that if the birth was recorded, the child
would be at risk of being drafted into the military later, and tried to
protect their child >from this by keeping the birth (and therefore the
existence of the child) secret >from the government. And in one case
which you may have heard mentioned at your Seder, the parents of
Moses tried to hide him due to Pharaoh's decree to kill the Jewish
males.

Re: Birth record that isn't one #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

In my experience with these records, the most likely reason for such
an entry in the birth register is that the original birth was not
registered. Sometimes the delayed registration is appended to the
birth register >from the year of birth such as this one and sometimes in
the register of the year it was recorded. I suggest that there was likely
some legal or administrative reason that Jakob or his parents decided
to do this in 1935.
