I just recently discovered a heretofore unknown branch of my family.
According to a newspaper clipping one of the members of this family
served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWW II. Can anyone tell me
how to get information >from the RCAF on this person? She is deceased and
left no children so until I can find other avenues to pursue this is my
only lead.

Zwawy [Zhvah vee] - male,

In Polish "Z" in zwawy reads with the an accent above the letter "z", which
reads as "zh" in the name "Zhukov "

Zwawy translates to English as brisk(y) or lively.

Brisk, lively, would translate into Lebendig/k (lively) in Yiddish, perhaps
into Chay, Chaya/Chayka/Chayim (Lif/living) in Hrbrew. Zwawy could thus be a
polish rendition of someon'es surname or given name, and you might find the
Polish and the Yiddish and Hebrew forms in the same family.

Q: Pre WWI US Military Service #general

Joshua and Adrienne Narrowe <narrowes@...>
 

I recently found my g-g uncle, Isidore (Irving) DIX's WWI draft
registration card. To my surprise he had already served one year in the
US military by this time (June 1917) (his poor mother!).

I could use a little help in understanding some of the info on his card
so that I'll know where to look for further info on his service.

Since he was born in 1889 (NYC), I think he missed the Spanish-American
war and Phillipine Insurrection.
On the bottom of the card it says:
Rank: Private Branch: C.A.C (that's what it looks like anyway)
Years: 1 yr. 10c/a Nation or state: US
Do you claim exemption >from the draft : No
There's a large X over this card and a CA written in the lower left
corner.

Any ideas on branch of service and what type of service
(volunteer/draftee/regular Army) this might indicate?

All suggestions appreciated in private response unless helpful to the
group at large.
Thanks,
Adrienne Narrowe

P.S. 168 in Manhattan #general

MS ALMA CAHN <MSRS03B@...>
 

I found a picture of this school among some old family photographs.
Does anyone know the address of the school, or some street
coordinates? It is (was?) an imposing building. Does anyone recall
students with the name ITZKOWITZ?

GUTSZTEJN in Poland - GUTSTEIN in Germany #general

Jose Gutstein <jmg-miami@...>
 

Seeking advice on name derivation:

My GUTSZTEJN (spelled in Polish) family tree goes back to the mid-18th
Century in Lomza Gubernia, Poland.

I've contacted almost every single Gutstein family listed in U.S. phone
directories, in Israel, and in several other countries where the name is
currently found. Total listings of about 250, not including Germany or
Austria. The actual number of different immediate families is obviously much
less, since many of the 250 are related to each other.

The overwhelming majority (easily over 90%) of these families (related to me
or not) have roots in Poland, and used the Gutsztejn spelling in the Old
Country. A few can be found in Lithuania (near the northern Polish border)
and a handful have roots to the south (in Galicia and Hungary). I suspect
that some of those families moved >from Poland to those areas at some point.
All have been Jewish.

Question:
What could I make of the 54 Gutstein listings currently found in Germany and
9 Gutstein listings in Austria? I suspect that the vast majority of those
are NOT Jewish, yet I've only had contact with 1 German named Gutstein who
contacted me first when he found my E-Mail address. The young man (20 years
old) told me his great-grandparents came >from a town which is currently in
Polish territory (Bytom and Chorzow, both are to the southwest of Kielce and
to the northwest of Krakow, near the German/Polish border). His surname was
Gutstein. Yet, when I asked him whether he knew if any of his Gutstein
ancestors were Jewish, I never heard >from him again.

Could a name that is considered "so Jewish" here in the states and
elsewhere, not be a Jewish name in Germany and Austria? Is it possible that
the name Gutsztejn in Polish and the name Gutstein in German are 2 distinct
names? The old Polish spelling is rarely seen these days. Only 2 families
that I know of use a variation of the old Polish spelling, one in Paraguay,
and one in the U.S. The other 99% have adopted the "English" spelling of
Gutstein. In other words, is it likely that the Gutstein's who today live in
Germany and Austria have Jewish ancestors if you go back far enough, like
from the western part of Poland near the German border?
Any opinions on the Gutstein name in Germany?

Thanks,

Jose Gutstein

I am searching for any information on a family by this name, it could have
been spelled differently, but they ended up in Philadelphia in the 1900 time
period. I have checked the census, the LDS library and anyother source and
have come up to a dead end.

valerie gold #general

sam corwin <scorwin@...>
 

In a recent posting regarding POWs', Valerie Gold
mentioned her uncle's five year internment at a POW
camp and his name change.
All military personnel had "dog tags" and were
required to wear them at all times. They were
stamped with name, ID numer and religious
preference. (C,H,P ). Her uncle must have swapped
his dog tags with perhaps a dead man to assume his
identity,for an H stamped on a dog tag would have
meant many things to a man about to be captured. The
dead person would be listed as Missing in Action
unless he was found with her uncle's dog tags on
him. Then her uncle would have been listed as Killed
in Action.
I don't know if this deals with geneology for I
would have sent it to Valerie if she had posted a
return Email address.
