ViewMate - Decipher Illegible Yiddish Script #general

Arnold Davidson
 

I found a hand-drawn map of Lomza (circa 1927) in a Lomza Yizkor book
published in 1957 and posted on the yizkor book collection of the NY
Public Library. While I can make out some of the sites named on the
map, e.g. talmud torah, hakhnoset orkhim, groyser bays hamikdosh, and
possibly yeshiva, I can't make out the other site names. I hope someone
with keener eyesight, greater imagination, and/or greater familiarity
with the names of these sites can decipher the handwriting. I am
familiar with the street names so I am not concerned about those.

I have enlarged the area I am particularly interested in. It is shown in:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15907

I had hoped to be able to show the original also but it has not yet been
posted by ViewMate..

Thanks.

Is anyone familiar with either of these places?
snip...

Chuck,

Dagutka is listed in Poland Business as a homestead within the town and
parish administration of Bieniakonie, in district Lida in Nowogrodek
Province, Poland

http://data.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/1929/loadtop.htm?1021

It shows that Dagutka had 114 morga (1 morga ~0.5 ha) land and was own by
Antonina Rymsza. Rymsza family also own in the same parish large lands in
Podwaryszki.

Existence of Dagutka is also confirmed by 1866 census, which identifies
homestead as the private property, 45 km >from Lida which is approximately
distance >from Lida to Bieniakonie.

There is no mentioning of Jews in Dagutka, but in the adjacent property of
Podwaryszki (see above) belonging to the same Polish Gentry family Rymsza,
five Jewish souls are listed in addition to other 38 homestead's residents.

"Klevitza" - most probably homestead Klewica owned by Umiastowski family in
Oszmiany ditstrict, about 18 km distance >from Oszmiany and 12 km distance
from Dziewieniszki, seven Jewish folks and 27 Roman Catholics are listed
there in 1866 as total population.

Those small settlements are known in Polish as "zascianek" (hamlets) or
"folwark" (>from German "vorwerk), a grange or a farmhouse but often it was a
proper mansion.

I came across English equivalents of those properties called them as
"retreats", which can be confused with vacation/holidays places but this is
not correct.

I prefer to use term "homesteads" or estates. Those properties owned and
inherited by Polish Gentry were often business units, and this is the reason
that our Jewish ancestors can be located there as they were employed as
'ekonoms' (property or business managers).

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Need help locating a marriage document in Philadelphia #general

rosecitykitty@...
 

My grandparents arrived in America in 1907 and lived in Philadelphia
with their respective families. I believe this is where they met and
married, although I am not positive about that because by 1910 they
were living in Manhattan so it is possible that the marriage took
place in NYC. I am looking for someone who would be willing to search
the Philadelphia archives for a marriage record or license.
Their names were Sam SOLOMOWITZ and Lizzie APFELBAUM and they were
married in 1908 or 1909. I would be glad to compensate you for your
time and the cost of the document. Thanks in advance.

Emails >from caring genners have sent information that Shlomo LIFSHITZ is the
son of Yerahmiel and Miriam LIFSHITZ. Yerahmiel passed away in 2009. Prior
to living in Tel Aviv, the family lived in Netanya.

Miriam lives in Tel Aviv in what I believe is a senior housing area. I
cannot get an answer on her telephone. Therefore, if I can make a contact
with Shlomo it would be most helpful.

I believe Yerahmiel was the youngest son of Samson/Shimshon and Alta Neome

Yerahmiel gave testimony to Yad Vashem about two sisters who I believe are
the ones I have pictures of >from my dad but never knew their given names.

Please reply privately. Sadly, I do not speak Hebrew or Yiddish.
