Dabriwa Gornicza #galicia

In the GALICIA Digest for Wednesday, October 06, 2004 is written as a
updates the town of Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland. This is the town that my
grandfather was born on. Is this a town of Galicia???
My grandfather’s name was CUKIERMAN (ZUKERMAN) WOLF (ZEHEV) and I don’t know
anything about his family, only he had an brother and a sister, who probably
died on Holocaust. I have a letter written by his mother telling him his
father died. My grandfather left to Israel about 1916 and then to
Montevideo, Uruguay.
Does anyone knows something about this family or this town?

You could check the

of the reading of the Torah portion Vayikra (the first portion
of the 3rd book of the Torah). I hope that you won't find
that all three were.
Too bad: Vayikra was indeed the reading on all three of those.
It shouldn't be surprising: when the same Hebrew date is on the same
day of the week, and the leap-year status is the same, the reading
of the week should generally be the same, I think.

Henry -

The X means she either went to temporary detention
or had a Special Inquiry hearing.

Go to this page at jewishgen for a great explaination
on the various notations one might find on the passenger
manifests.

If there is any additional information about Sarika, it will
be at the end of the manifest.

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Need translation of 1747 ritual murder document in Polish #yizkorbooks

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I have obtained a 27 page document that is a 1747 court case in which
several Jews are tried and convicted of ritual murder. The penalties are
the most gruesome I ever have read about. The trial occurred in
Krzemieniec, Poland (now Kremenets, Ukraine). The document is
handwritten in an old form of Polish. I would like to get this very
important document translated so that we can post the translation on
JewishGen. If you are willing to volunteer to help translate this
document, please contact me.

According to Shea & Hoffman, this is a valid Polish male name. So, if
this is indeed a Polish document, you are probably reading
a variant of that. It doesnt seem to be directly related to a
Hebrew name, but thats not particularly worrisome.

Steve Bloom
Jerzy is a Polish variation of George (St George). Perhaps it is not
particularly worrisome, but highly unlikely to be used as a
Jewish name in the 19th century Russian Poland.
