Soc. Sec. Card info??? #general

Arlene <aparnes@...>
 

This states:

SS5 with Claim to PC - request for action - Code 138 and says her date of
birth was 5/00/83 (1883).

Does anyone know what the above means? According to the card she was born
in 1879 and she would have been in her late 80's..

Possible????

Thanks

Kesher Israel synagogue, 412 Lombard St., Philadelphia #general

Harry D. Boonin <hdboonin@...>
 

I have the names of about two hundred members of Kesher Israel
synagogue, 412 Lombard Street in Philadelphia. The name of the
synagogue at first was B'nai Jacob, Anshe Sfard (1883-1894), at the same
address. B'nai Jacob merged with Anshe Zagare, a Lithuanian group in
1894, to form Kesher Israel. So at the beginning there were those who
followed Nusach Sfard and Nusach Ashkenaz. Kesher Israel has been at
this downtown location since 1894. I would be happy to check the
Yorzheit boards at the synagogue, and the charters for anyone
interested. I am looking for stories about the three shuls. Reply

25 most common surnames in Aleksandrow Lodzki #poland

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

In a previous announcement, I wrote that 3,436 *non-microfilmed* Jewish vital
records of Aleksandrow Lodzki >from 1877 through 1900 have been indexed by the
JRI-Poland team in Warsaw. Aleksandrow Lodzki is located just a few
miles/kilometers northwest of Lodz.

Because of the enormous influx of Jews to Lodz in the late 19th and early
20th century, it should be emphasized that those of us with family >from Lodz
should look to regional towns for our roots, as well as in Lodz proper.

With this idea in mind, here are the 25 most common surnames in Aleksandrow
Lodzki Jewish vital records, >from 1877 through 1900. Next to each surname is
the frequency of its appearance in these records.

Re: Records for Korolivka #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

From: <MHMarx@...>
Subject: Records for Korolivka


I am researching relatives who came >from Korolivka in the district of
Borschiv in Galicia. Where would vital records for the late1800s be found?
Can someone give me the necessary address and research guidelines.

Thanks,
Michael Marx Lexington, MA, USA email: MHMarx@...

Michael,

There were several Korolowka in Galicia and there appears be a bit of a
confusion as to their locations.
One Korolowka was located in Tarnopol, and three in Stanislawow regions.

1. Korolowka, powiat (district) Borszczow [Borshchev], Tarnopol [Ternopil]
Province.
Late 19th century vital records (those 100 years old and older) for
Borshchev are located in Warsaw's AGAD Archives.
AGAD Archives Galicia data is currently the subject of JRI-P AGAD Initiative
Project.

Newest than 100 years vital records are located in Warsaw Archives known as
USC Warszawa Srodmiescie or Archiwa Zabuzanskie.

2. Korolowka, powiat (district) Kolomyja [Kolomyya], Stanislawow
[Ivano-Frankivsk] Province
3. Korolowka [Korolevka], powiat (district) Tlumacz, Stanislawow
[Ivano-Frankivsk] Province
4. Olejowo-Korolowka [Oleyeva -Korolevka] at 4845 2522, powiat district)
Horodenka, {Gorodenka] Stanislawow [Ivano-Frankivsk] Province

With the notable exception of Korolowka near Borschcev, a large shtetl with
over 3,000 general population, the rest of the Korolowka (s) in Stanislawow
region were rather small villages having general population of about 1,000
people each.
