What might be the origin of the given masculine name
Lazel?

I assume it is >from Eliezer (similar to Leizer, Lazer,
etc.) Could there be other possibilities?

The person was given this name in early 1800's.

Books of Residents #poland #lodz

Hendlisz Gilbert <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Hello,

I do not know if you have already faced this problem: you find the birth
certificate of all the children of a same family, but some of them seem to
vanish: they never got married, they even don't die....In fact, they go
elsewhere to get married, to die or they emigrate. On the other hand, other
members of the family suddenly appear without any trace of their place and
date of birth.
I was thinking about the solutions that could be found to this kind of
problems in the "Books of Residents" These were the subject of an article
by Fay Bussgang I read in Avotaynu.
Does someone know if such books exist for Lodz, how they look like and if
Jews were recorded in a separate section. Research in that direction could
be considered as a goal for the future.
I'd like to know your opinion about this.

Gilbert Hendlisz.

"Scrolls of Testimony" Specially Priced on the JewishGenMall #latvia

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Our JewishGen Mall managers are pleased to let you know that the
Presentation Edition of one of the most moving chronicles of the
Holocaust, "Scrolls of Testimony" by the award-winning
Israeli writer Abba Kovner is available at the a very
special price of $79.95 for a limited time only. Normally
this book, written in the Jewish tradition of megillot or scrolls,
retails for $100.

More important than the advantageous price reduction is that this
compelling book...this testimony of the author interwoven with
eyewitness accounts of others, notes and excerpts of poetry
and prose, even last wills and testaments is an almost
liturgical account of the greatest tragedy to befall our
people.

Regarded by many as one of the great masterpieces of Holocaust literature,
"Scrolls of Testimony" took over ten years to research and write. The English
translation was a monumental effort accomplished by Dr. Edward Levenston,
former professor of English linguistics at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
The haunting paintings are by Samuel Bak, who, like Kovner, is a survivor
of the Vilna Ghetto.

Both the Presentation Issue and the regular edition are truly treasures.
Both are available now at reduced prices

The quickest way to find them is to click on the Browse button on the left

Re: Dates in JRI Projects #general

I don't have specific knowledge of this town's records, but births are
sometimes not registered until later years, for various reasons. I have
seen several examples where births were registered after the fact in
other JRI-PL town indexes. So the "year" would be the year of
registration, while the "born" date would be the data of the event itself.

Re: Questions on double-name "Ruchla Bayla" #general

As far as I am aware, there is no connection between Bayla and Bilha. Bayla
I believe comes >from the French Belle - beautiful. Bilha has never been a
common first name. The fact that Ruchla and Bayla are together has no basis
in that they were both wives of Yaakov.

It is quite common, to call a Jewish girl after two of the wives / mistress
of Jacob / Yisrael.
Happy Passover.

Good Pesach to everyone!

I was wondering if anyone out there can answer a couple Hebrew name
questions.

My mother's Hebrew name is Ruchla Bayla. She told me that Ruchla is
Rachael, but I didn't quite get what "Bayla" meant.

Also, When I was re-checking the listings for my maternal grandmother's
name in the JRI-Poland archives database, I saw the name Ruchla Bayla
listed just like my mother's name. Is is possible that these two names
are
normally given to a girl child together? Or did I just pick up on a
name being passed down through the family as a double name? Is this
clear?
Thanks!

Re: Mt. of Olives #general

Ben Ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Many years ago a book was printed by a Rabbi Brisk who to earn a living
wrote down the texts of all the tombstones on Mt. of Olives. The name of
the book (which is in hebrew) is "Chelkat Michokek". I believe that there
is a Jerusalem Jewish Gen. Soc. project to translate the book. In any case
the subject of the book has been discussed in the group and can probably be
found in the Archives or by contacting the society's branch in Jerusalem.
I've seen the book at the National Library in Jerusalem but I don't know
where else it can be found.


Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat

My wife has an ancestor Joshua (Rabbi Yehoshua Tzvi) Cristol buried on
the Mount of Olives in Israel in 1894.

Is there any way to get a photo of his gravestone?

He sailed to Palestine with is wife, Ethel in 1893 >from Ireland
(Dublin) after immigrating >from Riga, Lithuania. His father's name
was Shabbtai Halevy Kristol and, as such, was a Levy.

Any help or information would be very kindly appreciated!

Hilary Henkin gave a site for US newspapers. I'd like to add one that
I've found particularly helpful.

www.ecola.com

provides links to newspapers in the US and around the world -
both dailies and weeklies. It also includes links to magazines.
It's very well organized and, under each state and country, offers a
section for Jewish publications. Many of these have searchable archives.
The only downside is that most of these archives only go back a few
years.

Hope this helps,

Janow, Poland (near Czestochowa) #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I believe that I have discovered the answer to a question
that I recently posted:

I am seeking records for the town of Janow (near Czestochowa, Przyrow,
Mstow, and Zarki) for the years before 1863. Having already examined
many other cities in a large circle around this area, I am suspecting
that this town was the original place of origin of my ENGLENDER
ancestors. The JRI-Poland listing on the web shows only these films:

Janow, 1863-1882 B
film 1,646,267

Janow, 1880/1888 BMD
1,646,268

Is that the end of the story? Or perhaps is there some other way that
I might search for the Janow years before 1863?
The answer appears to be that the records were destroyed in
a fire some time in the 1860s. The document below has details.
I have only been able to have a few sentences translated.
