Once again, you cannot find records of passengers coming into Castle Garden
New York between the dates referred to above because they are not indexed.
The only way is if you know the approximate date of arrival and/or the ship.
Then you can pour over pages of microfilm >from the national archives. I had
one other person help me do just that. We each took three months per year
for two different years and it took us all day at the national archives.

It is very unlikely according to Russian authorities that Jews would be
allowed to serve in the Czar's Honor Guard (called the Czar's army by
some). Supposedly, I had an ancestor who did so, but I doubt it due to
the Czar's prejudice and laws against Jews.

As for the regular Russian Army, you need exact information as to dates and
units to find someone. There are no indexes or short cuts except for high
ranking officers or special branches. My great grandfather was a medical
doctor in the Russian Army in the 1870's and my professional researchers in
Russia could find no records.

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear Lou,
I have a couple of Louis's in my family. Their original names were
Leizer / Lazar (same name, different spelling).

If your parents don't know his original name, perhaps there are other
siblings who might know. If there other siblings are no longer living,
you might see if you can visit or get a photo of their gravestones. By
Jewish tradition, the deceased's name is included in the inscription as
"deceased 'ben' father's-given-name".

Other than that, you might be able to get a record (birth, marriage) from
the place your grandfather came from. A researcher there might be able
to find the record knowing the surname and first initial.

Good luck!

#Ciechanow #Poland researching: CYNAMON in Ciechonow #ciechanow #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Hi,

I have found two family connections to CYNAMON with links in Ciechanow.

1. Jura BORDOWICZ, (born 1862 in Karnewo) married Berek CYNAMON (born 1863
in Pultusk),
the wedding held in Ciechanow in 1881.
2. Berek CYNAMON's father was Shlyama CYNAMON and his mother was Ruchl
BORDOWICZ.

I assume Jura and Berek were cousins.

The Bordowitz family came >from north of Warsaw, >from the towns of Makow,
Golomyn, Ciechanow,
Mlawa and Przasnysz. Records seem to show up abruptly starting in the 1860s
and I believe that is because the earlier Makow records were destroyed in a
fire.

I am interested in any information regarding either Jura or Ruchl CYNAMON
(married names).

I have a hypothesis (no proof yet) that the Ruchl Bordowicz who married
Shlyama Cynamon
was the sister of my gg-gf Melach Bordowicz. If so, my grandmother was
named after her.

If any of this rings a bell, please contact me at <meyers01@...>

Best,

Marty Meyers

Seeking Persons Interested In Jewish Cemetery in Curacao #galicia

Alan <alanboy@...>
 

Hello,
I will be visiting the Island of Curacao (Dutch) in Southern
Caribbean during the first week in March 2002. I had previously
visited Temple Mikve Israel Emanuel Synagogue there, which is over 350
years old. On this trip I hope to visit the Jewish cemeteries there.
The "old" cemetery dates to about 1659 and is reported to have 5,000
sites, and the "new" cemetery dates to about 1900.

I am not sure how much time I will have visiting the cemeteries, but
if anyone believes they have relatives buried there, you can provide
me directly (alanboy@...) their names, dates of births and
deaths if known, and I will try to seek out their burial sites and
photograph them. In any case I hope to photograph the unusual (for
Jews) tombstones found in these cemeteries.

This is a message for Penny Kornstein regarding her search for
information about Siedliska. There were 12 towns with this name in
Galicia...most in Western GAlicia, now Poland but a few in Eastern
Galicia, now Ukraine. You will need to explore the context further to
determine which are more likely to be "yours."

You might want to check with older family members in the extended family
to see if anyone remembers anything further. Record searching will
likely net you the information that the town was Siedliska....back full
circle to nowhere.
