up a name if anyone is interested to know if birth, marriage or death
vital records are in these films.
I believe the KR-SIG group has listed the names in a journal. Is this
true? I have sent in an application to join the group but I also would
like to have their e-mail address.
David, the Kielce-Radom SIG Journal publishes not index lists of vital
records, but extracts. The difference between the two is that extracts
contain more information. In addition to just a name list, the extracts
will indicate such information as: parents, ages, maiden names, occupations,
towns of origin, marital status. There is an article in the forthcoming
Fall 1998 issue of the Journal that will deal with this subject specifically.

It is important to note that, as with many major genealogy projects, the
KRSIG has thus far worked only a limited number of towns in the region.
Chmielnik is not one of them. We need more researchers willing to perform
record extractions. To date, just a tiny handful of us have done all
the work.

The email address for the KRSIG is <genes@iag.net>

Seeking information about Moshe Katz Yiddish Author from South America. #general

NormK12065
 

JGeners,

Possibly some of our South American friends can help me out.

I am seeking information about my deceased Grand Uncle, Yiddish author Moshe
Katz.

I am told that he was born in Poland (possibly Kazimierz Dolny) and had been a
businessman in Heidelberg, Germany. He escaped to Argentina and had been
trained to be a furrier but was also a writer. He had gone to Buenos Aires
and then moved to Cordoba, Argentina. He was listed in the Who's Who of
Argentine writers (I do not have a copy of the listing and do not know which
year). I was also told he was not married until he arrived in Argentina and
possibly was married twice. I do have a picture of him that appeared in an
Argentine Jewish publication. Although the caption is missing I was told it
described him as a "dichter", a poet. I have been loaned >from a family member
a copy of his Yiddish book published in 1946. On the cover is the picture of
the devil and a German Swatztika in a flag stuck in a globe of the earth. I
had the title translated and it is "This is the Way it Began" a novel by Moshe
Katz. It also says "A Novel in 5 Parts". The title of the prolog is "The
Mirror".

No one knows if he had any children but if so I might have some unknown
relatives in South America.

I appreciate any help in gathering information about this relative.

Who is Ernst Gottlieb #general

Mitchell J. Block <m.block@...>
 

In looking through my family's old photo album, family name BLOCK, there
are two photos of a youn man, probably 18-20 years old taken in Holland
around 1938. Judging by the large buildings in the background, I assume
the picture was taken in a city. The inscription says Ernst GOTTLIEB, but
that is all. My father, who was a young boy at the time, has no idea who
this is. There is no one else to ask. I would be happy to send a
photocopy of this picture to anyone who may think they know who this is. I
assume he was related in some way.


BIRGER/BERGER from Kupishok #general

SandyMike <smberg@...>
 

Thanks to the incredible work accomplished by Ann Rabinowitz and others
associated with the Kupishok SIG, within the past week or so my "family
tree" has moved "back" about 125 years as we have added confirmed
identities of my GGGGF, GGGF, GGU, and GGA (and some of their families
and descendants). We have already linked up, via Internet, with a few
formerly unknown cousins in Israel and South Africa. To put it mildly,
it has been an exciting few days.

If you have BIRGER antecedents >from Kupishok Lithuania, please let me
know and we will see how we may all interrelate (excuse the pun).

searching STEINROJT sisters in Argentina #general

ALAIN SILBERSTEIN CREATIONS <asc@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

I am looking for years to the part of my family who escaped >from the
Shoa emigrating to Argentina in the 20's.

The father was Yinkel STEINROJT. He lived in Warszawa. He was the
brother of my grand-mother. All the family perished in the Shoa except
his 4 daughters who were living in Argentina:

- TSIPORA emigrated to Argentina in 1920-22
- X in 1920-22
- PERLA in 1930; married with a doctor in Argentina
- X in 1933

The lonely way to trace them and their families is to consult police
records which are ordered by maiden last name. I may need the
assistance of a private detective for such inquiry.

Does anyone already make a similar research in Argentina ?
Any suggestions and advice would be helpful.

Thanks.

Bircza Region Pre-1941 Surnames #general

David Gershon Leventhal <David_Gershon@...>
 

Hello all,

In my work on the Bircza Online! 'virtual shtetl', I have
decided to create a Pre-1941 'Phone Book' of Bircza Region
residents. This is simply a listing of names of people in
the Bircza Area, who were living there around June 1941,
when the Germans invaded.

And so I ask anyone researching the Bircza Area to contact
me. No other information is needed, other than a name
(married name, please, for females, if applies) and the
specific village (i. e., Korzeniec, Leszczawa Dolne) near
Bircza they lived in. When someone clicks on a name in the
'phone book', they will be taken to the Researcher
Information. That is simply the submitter's name and E-mail,
and a list of names he is searching (or simply related to)
in the Bircza Region. Entries do not have to be those of
Jews, they can be Ukrainian or Polish, as well.

The whole BO! production should be completed around 23
August. I will post again to announce its completion and
availability.

Thanks,

Searching FREIFELD, HAMER, and TURNER #general

David Gershon Leventhal <David_Gershon@...>
 

Hello all,

I seem to have added three new names to my research.
Yesterday, while looking through some old lettres of
correspondence between my grandfather and his aunt, I
noticed three previously unheard-of (to me) names. My
great-great-aunt wrote that her mother, Szajndel Bierfass
Tepper (aka: Szandl Bierfass Tepper), daughter of Dawid
Bierfass, came >from the BIERFASS, HAMER, and TURNER houses
in Zohatyn, near Bircza, Poland. My grandfather was
surprised to read that, because he had always told me that
she came >from Nezankowice, which is a shtetl near Bircza,
far larger than Zohatyn, and even Bircza itself! She also
wrote that there was a FREIFELD family in Zohatyn,
presumably also related to Szajndel, her mother.

I know absolutely nothing else on the HAMER, TURNER, and
FREIFELD families, but if you are searching any of them, in
Galicia, please contact me. I might be able to piece
together something.

Thanks,
