BERGBAUM - Tracing addresses in Lodz #poland #lodz

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@...>
 

I am trying to trace the address of my family (BERGBAUM) who were >from Lodz
and not simply deportees to the ghetto >from outside the area.

My grandfather Samuel had 5 siblings - Zipporah Raela (who married Joseph
SCHNEIDER), Isaac (name changed to Jean), Hyman, Baruch (name changed to
Bernard), Miriam Pearl (who married Shmuel SZAO). These siblings' parents
were Azriel (1862-1933) and Rosa (d.1897) BERGBAUM. Azriel remarried Cyna
and their son Moishe died in the Lodz ghetto in 1943.

In the Lodz Ghetto database on this site, I have located an address for
Moishe at "Matrosen Gasse". Underneath it, is the address "Insel Strasse".

Questions.
Is the data saying that Moishe moved >from one address to the other. Both
streets are within the ghetto.

Are there records that include someone's Lodz ghetto address with their
pre-ghetto address.

Which sites have searchable databases for names/addresses of Lodz residents
1860-1939

For all help and suggestions I am most grateful.

29th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy Announces Keynote Speaker: Father Patrick Desbois #lodz #poland

David Mink
 

On behalf of the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, we
are extremely pleased to announce that the distinguished French priest,
author, and humanitarian, Father Patrick Desbois, will be the keynote
speaker at the opening session in Philadelphia, Sunday, August 2, 2009. His
speech will be, "The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest's Journey to Uncover the
Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 million Jews," which is also the title of his
book.

The grandson of a deportee to the Nazi Rawa Ruska forced-labor Camp in
Ukraine, Father Desbois is best known for his work in searching for and
uncovering mass graves in Ukraine and for his book, "The Holocaust by
Bullets."

"My book is an act of prevention of future acts of genocide," Desbois said.
Winner of the B'nai B'rith International Award for Outstanding Contribution
to Relations with the Jewish People, Father Desbois is secretary to the
French Conference of Bishops for Relations with Judaism, advisor to the
Cardinal-Archbishop of Leon and advisor to the Vatican on the Jewish
Religion. Father Desbois is the president of Yahad in Unum
(www.yahadinunum.org), whose mission is to increase knowledge and
cooperation between Catholic and Jews.

Commenting on Father Desbois, Conference Co-Chair David Mink said, "We are
extremely pleased to have Father Desbois speak at our conference. He has
performed selfless acts of kindness for the many people of Jewish heritage
who trace their ancestry to Eastern Europe and have not been able to record
the death of loved ones on their family tree."

The Conference in Philadelphia, August 2-7, 2009, will include programs
featuring archivists, researchers and genealogists >from around the world.
For more information, visit www.Philly2009.org.

Beer and Jews in Galicia #galicia

Rachel Wilson <rachel@...>
 

A small aside in connection with Jews, Beer and Inn-keeping.

In 2003 my husband and I went on a private 'Roots' tour of Galicia,
including a visit to Sanok (pre WW2 population: 60% Jewish). We
were shown around the Skansen - A huge open air Folk Architecture
Museum, by a young official tour guide who was a post-graduate
Tourism student at Rzeszow University. In a two hour tour the
young man regaled us with an enormous amount of information about
what he assured us were 'all' the local population groups in the
area, which 'formed the unique complex of Polish-Ukrainian
ethnic-cultural borderland groups'. Namely: The Bojks, the Lemks
and the Pogorzans. There was no mention of Jews nor any sight of
any Jewish artefacts.

We played dumb and did not reveal any Jewish connection. But at
the end of our warm and lengthy encounter my husband asked very
innocently: "By the way, were there any Jews in the area?" "Yes"
came the reply "but nobody liked them." "Oh, why was that?" My
husband wanted to know. "Because they were all innkeepers" (sic!!)

I suppose that this is further reliable confirmation of our
forefathers' beer related occupations. But I wish some Galizianer
who is wiser than I am could explain this supposedly well
educated young man's non sequitur.

Happy Purim

Re: Jews, Taverns and alcohol selling #galicia

Jackie Schwarz
 

I've been reading all the mails about alcohol in Galicia. Just
wanted to add a memory of my aunt Sure Breindel SCHWARTZ who is
now 99. She told me that her grandfather Schmiel SCHWARZ had an inn
in Kalwarija Paclawska. As a young girl I suppose around 1920 or
before she would come >from Dobromil with her brothers to help serve
when there would be a pilgrimage. She said that it was illegal to
serve alcohol and it was done >from a separate back room. She also
remembered that during the pilgrimage bands of pick pockets
would arrive >from Przemysl and take their pickings at the inn.

M. MORMAIN Philadelphia 1900 #general

sangreenb@...
 

Hello: For several years I have been searching for a cousin of my
grandfather's. This is the person that my grandfather Jakob NEUBERGER listed as
going to when he arrived in the U.S.

The cousin's name on Jakob's passenger manifest was M.MORMAIN living on at 4
2nd St. Philadelphia.

In light of the IAJGS upcoming conference in Philadelphia I am wondering if
any of you have suggestions of where I might search in the Philadelphia area.

I have never seen M. MORMAIN'S name on a passenger manifest nor on a census
record.

Any research suggestions are very much appreciated.

You can reply to me privately at sangreenb@...
Thank you.

Re: Correlating UK departure & US arrival lists is genealogical *good practice* #general

joyweave
 

I, too, believe it is best to obtain whatever documents are obtainable even when
they might be redundant.

My grandfather is listed in the Canadian Border Crossings as arriving at
St.John, NB on the Lake Superior >from Liverpool. When I looked at the ship's
manifest, itself, he wasn't there. Instead there was another man his age listed
twice, two rows apart, once as a carpenter and once as a painter. My gf was a
painter, so I suspected an entry error in the manifest. Sure enough, he was in
the outgoing >from UK list.
While it might not be vital to have done this, having already found his entry to
the US, it did serve to complete the picture of his travels and verify that he
was indeed on that ship.

KROTOSZYNSKI families, Poland, Britain and U.S.A. #unitedkingdom

James Bennett <Bennett@...>
 

A number of Jewish families named KROTOSZYNSKI emigrated to Britain and the
U.S., >from towns like Kowal, Wloclawek, Konin, Kleczew, Izbica, Kolo,
Kalisz, Lodz etc. in W. Poland during the latter half of the 19th century.

Perusal of the U.K. 1891,1901, and 1911 censuses, and the England & Wales
B-M-D databases show members of these families up to about 1916.
Afterwards, almost nothing.

At least one--a family of Kohen'im--changed their name to COHEN and COWAN in
Britain, and to COWEN in America. Another changed to DAVIS.

I am searching for any and all KROTOSZYNSKI's and their descendants. Having
researched ten of these families in Poland, I will be pleased to help the
descendants link up to their ancestors who lived 150-200 years ago--and to
their living "cousins".

It seems clear that >from WW I, the families Anglicized or altered their
names.
I would appreciate any assistance to locating the descendants, getting
cemetery information, etc.
