Hi,

I am somewhat of a newbie/lurker so bear with me if some of my
questions have been asked already.

I have been working on researching the following families >from
the following towns and I have decided I would see if any of you
could provide some guidance or point me in a direction I may not
have thought of. I have Googled, Geni'(e)d, Yad v'Shem, Ancestry,
and used the indexed records available through you guys (for
which I am very grateful.) I have also gotten bits and pieces of
information >from living relatives.

I am searching for any information on the following:

- Nachman KROCHMAL and his ancestors and descendants. Supposedly
he is my 6th great grandfather but have been trying to verify
this as I have been having trouble figuring out his exact
connection to my 3rd great grandfather Hirsch Leib KROCHMAL (he
is in the Tarnopol index - I am through his daughter Lea Laura
who married Jozef ROTHSTEIN). I am also looking at HABERMAN,
HOROWITZ, GOLDBRUM, FRUCHTMAN, SEID, KACZER, SIRKUS, and BROCH.

-As mentioned above Lea Laura KROCHMAL marred Joseph ROTHSTEIN,
the son of Michael and Cipre ZUCKER. Anything anyone may have on
this family would be very helpful. He is also in the Tarnopol
index. I am through Joseph's son Marcus who married married
Bertha Bassie TILLINGER >from the Stanislav index.

-Bertha is the daughter of Aron Moshe TILLINGER of Stanislav and
Hanna WOLF/WAX/MOSSLER >from Kolomyya. >from what I understand
from one of Aron's granddaughters, a great grandparent of his
had 15 boys.

If you have questions for me please feel free to ask as I may
have inadvertantly left some piece of information out. Also if
anyone is also researching the same people please feel free to
e-mail me.

Thanks in advance for any help you provide.

Searching for Joseph WEINBERG birth records #galicia

sue kriloff
 

Dear Galicia members,

My name is Sue Kriloff. I am a new member. I am looking for my
father's, Joseph WEINBERG's, birth records. I need birth records
to find his siblings. I do not know which Polish town my father
was born in since records state various sources. Father's
statement in Belgian archives states Krakow. Father's statement
in ITS documents states Krakow and Warsaw. Father's statements to
me/his friends state Rejowiec. USA naturalization papers state
Warsaw. Krakow/Rejowiec USCs have no birth records. Warsaw USC
has not replied.

Father was born 5/3/16. His parents were Sarah Muller and Samuel
Weinberg. Their birthdates are unknown. Father's statement in
Belgian archives states Sarah was >from Lodz and Samuel was >from
Lublin. He was one of five siblings. One sibling is Jakob. Jakob
was born in Warsaw according to ITS documents. Other siblings are
unknown. His family was orthodox.

Joseph was a Polish soldier. His regiment was sent to Stutthoff
c. camp. He was a Palestinian soldier. He was sent to Akko prison.
He departed Belgium as a sailor on the SS Argovan in 1947. He
arrived in NY, USA, in 1948.

Can you help me find my father's birthplace?

Thank you,
Sue Kriloff, simitherapista@...

MODERATOR'S NOTE: We have posted this message because of a
possible Krakow connection. Please send information about records

TOKARZH from Terespol...maybe #poland

taxtroll@...
 

For years now I've picked up and put down the research on the family of
my great grandmother Jennie TUCKER SCHNEIDER. Today I may have found
something...

According to the 1908 Brest-Litovsk marriage record for my great
grandparents, Jennie's name was Sheyne, daughter of Moshko-Gershko
TOKARZH of Terespol. Her 1956 US death certificate lists her mother's
name as Seidel (no maiden name). Jennie lived in Brest-Litovsk until
1928 when she came to New York with the 6 children to meet husband
Morris/Moishe SCHNEIDER. I have copies of all of the Brest Ghetto
Passports for the TOKAR (and variations) name but I don't see any
obvious link to Jennie's family. I know we have TUCKER cousins in the
US but no one in the family that I'm in touch with is still in touch
with them.

In searching the JRI-Poland database, the TOKAR (and variations)
surname doesn't seem to be a very common name (at lest within the
database). Today I expanded my search beyond Terespol since I wasn't
finding anything there. I did a broad search for surname starting with
"TOK" and found an interesting coincidence. In the town of Kromolow
there is an 1860 birth record for Mordka Hersz TOKAJER, son of Lejbus
and Laja. This date makes sense since Jennie would have been born circa
1890. The name Laja is interesting because Jennie named her second
daughter Leya. I also found the 1850 marriage record for Lejbus TOKAJER
and Laja FRYDLENDER and the 1851 birth record of their first son
Leyzor. No direct links to Jennie but very interesting.

The town of Kromolow is not located anywhere Terespol or Brest. Does
anyone have any experience with family, or just any comments, about
movement between these two regions? Also, I didn't see anyone in the
JGFF researching this surname in these towns but if anyone is, please
contact me. I have more details and 2 photos on my blog at
http://sharon-genealogy.blogspot.com/2009/07/hunt-for-tucker-link.html.

Thanks for any input

PRUSKIN: Reb Pesach of Kobrin, Antipole, Paris (also ZUCHOVSKI, LIPSCHUTZ) #poland

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

I am searching for family of Reb Pesach PRUSKIN, also known as Pesach
Kobrinner.

A cousin tells me that his great-grandmother Ida/Chaya Laya, sister of
my great-grandmother Rachel (nee Prushkin) Meyers, often spoke of being
related to Reb Pesach. Rachel and Chaya Laya's parents were Eliayahu
and Rose (nee FARS) PRUSHKIN. Chaya Laya's family(SHALMUK, changed to
PALMER) immigrated >from near Amdur/Indura and Rachel's family
(MEYEROWITZ/MEYERS) emigrated >from nearby Berestovitsa.

Both Rachel and Ida were born in the 1850s. There was a 3rd sister
whose name may have been Ailkie.

The following link is to a short biography, originally published by
Chaim Shapiro in the Jewish Observer

http://www.tzemachdovid.org/gedolim/jo/tworld/rpruskin.html

gives a number of intriguing clues to Reb Pesach's family tree, including:

1. born c1859 to an impoverished mother (name unknown) in an unnamed
town, father's name also Pinchas
2. mother's grandfather was Reb Pinchas Michael, rav of Antipole.
3. Pesach had 2 sisters and 2 brothers (names unknown), all of whom
went to Paris to live with a son (name unknown) of Reb Pinchas Michael
4. son of Reb Pinchas Michael is said to have been involved in
translation of Talmud into French and was a professor of philosophy in Paris
5. one of the Parisian sisters married a wealthy maskil and lived in
Vilna (names unknown)
6. Pinchas married a Tziporah Lipschutz
7. Pinchas died 1939 in Kobrin
8. a son Rav Avraham Pruskin is said to have escaped to the US with
some of his father's writings which were published
by a grandson "Rabbi Nosson Zuchovski of Bnei Brak and Pesach Tikvah"
9. a son Reb Leib married the "daughter of the Mashgiach of Lomza
Yeshiva, Reb Moshe Rosenstein"
10. of the brothers in France, "their children and grandchildren are
celebrated French atomic scientists"
11. "the grandchildren of Reb Pesach can be found in many a major
kollel and yeshivah in America and Israel"

So, I have lots of clues that I hopefully will find connect back in
the 1850s with my great-great-grandfather Eliyahu PRUSKIN.

If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Meaning in AGAD Birth Index #poland

What does entry Goldstein/Weiss mean?

In the JRI-PL AGAD birth indexes I find listings such as
Goldstein/Weiss. I know there are special meanings when names are
separated by an f, r or v; such as, Fine r Gold. What does it mean
when there are no intervening letters? I find this mostly under
Maiden Name of the birth mother in the birth indexes.

Books of Residents in Poland - spec. Lublin? #poland

Kirsten Gradel <kirsten.gradel@...>
 

Would a family - who never registered marriages or births of their
children in the civil records - still be registered/entered in the
Books of Residents? Put another way, was it possible for a family to
escape registration also in the BoRs?

The question is important for my GRADEL research because grandfather
Moszek in Lublin(1862-1915, died >from Typhus) and his brother
Mendel(1860-1915) never registered any of their life events - Moszek
was married twice and had seven children. The BoRs are my only hope of
"catching" them during the 1880-90ies in Lublin - and thereby learning
the maiden name of grandmother Szewa. I am in contact with all
descendants of Moszek, but no one knows anything about Szejwa. There
is no doubt that Moszek lived and died in Lublin and the children were
all born there(Polish passport issued Lublin, UK Naturalization papers).

Of Mendel I have no trace at all apart >from his 1860 B record in
Lublin and family knowledge of his death in Lublin same year as
brother Moszek. I don't even know whether he married or had children.

If Moszek couldn't avoid being registered in the BoRs I will ask
Lublin PSA to check the BoRs for him and Szejwa - but I fear Moszek
somehow escaped also that registration.. Nine years ago we were in
contact with Lublin PSA and they did not find anything about Moszek-
Szejwa or the two children we could then name. Maybe the BoRs were not
checked - I didn't know of that resource then - but for an archivist I
think it would have been an obvious source to check.

Would a family - who never registered marriages or births of their
children in the civil records - still be registered/entered in the
Books of Residents? Put another way, was it possible for a family to
escape registration also in the BoRs?

The question is important for my GRADEL research because grandfather
Moszek in Lublin(1862-1915, died >from Typhus) and his brother
Mendel(1860-1915) never registered any of their life events - Moszek
was married twice and had seven children. The BoRs are my only hope of
"catching" them during the 1880-90ies in Lublin - and thereby learning
the maiden name of grandmother Szewa. I am in contact with all
descendants of Moszek, but no one knows anything about Szejwa. There
is no doubt that Moszek lived and died in Lublin and the children were
all born there(Polish passport issued Lublin, UK Naturalization papers).

Of Mendel I have no trace at all apart >from his 1860 B record in
Lublin and family knowledge of his death in Lublin same year as
brother Moszek. I don't even know whether he married or had children.

If Moszek couldn't avoid being registered in the BoRs I will ask
Lublin PSA to check the BoRs for him and Szejwa - but I fear Moszek
somehow escaped also that registration.. Nine years ago we were in

A large number of Litvaks emigrated >from Lithuania (especially >from
Kaunas) to Rostov-on-Don, Russia in a "chain migration" in the mid to late
19th and early 20th centuries. First class merchants were given permission
to travel and settle outside the Pale of Settlement, because of the desire
of the Russian Empire to make that city into a trading center, via the
Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

Hello all,

My grandmother was born in Kaunas, Lithuania. My grandfather was born in
Akna Szlatina, Hello all,

My grandmother was born in Kaunas, Lithuania. My grandfather was born in
Akna Szlatina, Czechoslovakia. According to a story I've heard, my
grandfather was a POW during WWI and there he met my grandmother.

I have eliminated the possibility of them meeting in Kaunas.

I now suspect that they might have met (and married !!) in
Rostov-na-Donu, Russia.

The reason is that I found a certificate made by the Rostov Rabbi
confirming some facts about my great aunt following WWI. I found
indication that Rostov was indeed an area where both Austo-Hungarian army and the
Russian army met. In addition, it is possible that my Litvak grandmother was
sent inside Russia >from Lithuania during WWI.

Did anybody encounter such a story ? Where can I find marriage records for
Jews in Rostov circa. 1919-1920 ?

I will be happy to hear >from other Rostov researchers.

Thank you,
