Seeking Info About Lviv Prewar Jewish Distillery #galicia

Marla Raucher Osborn <marla.r.osborn@...>
 

I am seeking information, photos, memoirs, or artifacts connected with
a distillery built and operated in Lemberg (Lwow, today Lviv) before
WW2 by a Jewish family surname KRONIK. The family was quite
prominent in the city under the Austrian Empire and maintained
business and family connections to both Vienna and Lemberg up until
the outbreak of the war.

The distillery building (recently purchased and undergoing renovation
for conversion to a museum and cultural center) is on what is today
called Street, formerly called Zolkiewska Street, north-northeast of
Lviv town center. No longer operating as a distillery, it became after
the war a jam factory; hence why the complex today carries the name
of the "Jam Factory". To read more:

http://day.kyiv.ua/en/article/society/new-life-jam-factory

The family that lived across >from the Jam Factory in prewar Lwow was
surname LOEW. They ran a mead brewery. An interview with Wilhelm
Loew of that family can be found on USHMM website:
http://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn504802

Next to the Jam Factory was a school attended by many Jewish
students; that school building still exists today. The still-famous
distillery known as Baczewski is located nearby on the same street.

If anyone has family information about this distillery, please contact
me privately.

Thanks, and all the best,

Researching HUREWITZ family-Far Rockaway-1930 s #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My father (Louis KATZOFF) and seemingly my uncle (Mayer ABRAMOWITZ)
were friends of an HUREWITZ (not sure of spelling) family who lived
who lived in Far Rockaway during the first half of the 20th cent.
Probably as school mates at Yeshiva University (high school and
college). I remember staying at the home of one of the HUREWITZs when
I studied in NYC in the 1960s.

There is a HUREWITZ family in Hartford, Ct. to whom we are supposed to
be related and in trying to find the exact relationship,I am wondering
if the Far Rockaway HUREWITZs and the Hartford HUREWITZs are
connected. One of the ancestors of the Hartford HURWITZs was Rabbi
Isaac Simcha HUREWITZ (d.1935 Hartford) originally >from Novarodok in
Europe.

Their cousin in Israel was a well known Shochet in Petach Tikva, Reb
Shimon "Shoichet" HUREWITZ (d. early 1960s) and the father-in-law of
the POCHOVITZ family.

My father (Louis KATZOFF) and seemingly my uncle (Mayer ABRAMOWITZ)
were friends of an HUREWITZ (not sure of spelling) family who lived
who lived in Far Rockaway during the first half of the 20th cent.
Probably as school mates at Yeshiva University (high school and
college). I remember staying at the home of one of the HUREWITZs when
I studied in NYC in the 1960s.

Did this happen before 1837 as well - i.e. if Census information shows
a couple with children whose ages indicate birth before the Great
Synagogue marriage of their parents, but after the parents were old
enough to marry, should one assume a not (yet?) found previous
marriage for the father, or is there an alternative?.
There was no civil marriage in England and Wales before 1836.

RAFAEL surname change #general

Dear All,

While researching one line of my family tree, I encountered a 6x
great-grandmother named Joan Rafael, born in Hemyock, Devon, 1748. It
would appear that before marrying, she changed her surname to
'Radfield', as this is the name that appears on the marriage register. I
could not find any record of her parents (John Rafael + Ann) anywhere on
Ancestry's database. The fact that my ancestor anglicised her surname
and that there are no records of her parents leads me to wonder if the
family were recent Jewish immigrants, but I cannot find any record of
them on the Family Tree of the Jewish People. Am I on the right lines,
and if so where would be the best place for me to research this line
further?

Thank you very much!
