Re: Bobrka District Vital Records #galicia

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Beverly and ALL,

Bobrka any several other Galician towns (eighty, if remeber correctly) old
records are definitely located in Warsaw Archives. Those Archives known as
"Archiwum Zabuzanskie" (Over the River Bug).
Those are at least 100 yers old dcumenta are transfered to historical
Archives - it appears that historical documents should include records till
end of the 19th century. "Newest" documents are archived in the 'regular'
depository .

Address in Warsaw:

Urzad Stanu Cywilnego
ul. Jezuicka 1/3

From: "Beverly" <bev7@...>

My father was born in Bobrka, and when his family emigrated >from there in
1920, he was issued a document in lieu of a birth certificate which
certified his birth and stated that city hall (and all the records there)
was burned down in WWI. I know that there are a FEW Bobrka birth records
(1870s, I think) in Warsaw.

I do not know about tax rolls or census records, but would be happy to
hear
if anyone else does know.
-----------------
I was informed that all vital records >from the Bobrka district were
destroyed in a fire during the 1920's. Is this true? If it is true,
would
there be any reason to believe other copies exist somewhere else
such as Warsaw or Lviv?

Even if the vital records are no longer available, is it possible
that
tax records, census records, etc. are available?

Alfredowka & Tarnobrzeg #galicia

Arnold Hauser <armil@...>
 

My grandfather (Hauser) and grandmother (Fuchs) were married in
Alfredowka on 8/18/1896. I would like to get a copy of their marriage
certificate but beside that I was wondering about the exact location of
Alfredowka. I have a feeling it is or was a small town just outside of
Tarnobrzeg where my grandfather and father were born. The coordinates
are almost identical, Alfredowka....5028-2145, Tarnobrzeg....5035-2141.

Your help would be appreciated.

GOLDSTEIN / HERMAN #general

IRSWED <irswed@...>
 

Hello! I am posting this for a friend. Nathan GOLDSTEIN married to Roza
HERMAN. Lived in POLAND. Died in the camps. Nathan was a Dr. and Roza's
family wealthy. Possibly >from L'vov. They had 2 children: Sophie (my
friends late mother) and a son who was studying at the time abroad in Med.
school. My friend said no one, to the best of her mother's
knowledge,survived. She was wondering if her uncle did. He would be
around 80. Perhaps someone out there knows this family?

Thank-you, Irene Swedroe, IRSWED@...

Need opinion on theory #general

DREIMAN <m4fab4@...>
 

Hello all. I'm not sure if this is the greatest place to post this, but my
cousin and I are in disagreement of our Jewish ancestory. Our paternal
grandparents were born in the Ukraine (1880's to 1903) Our great great
grandparents were more than likely among the Prussian/German immigrants
that came into the Ukraine area late 1700. The surname that has been in
our family is TRUPP.

My cousin has a theory that because:
A. This name is German
B. Most of the Trupp's we have come in contact with are not Jewish
C. We can not find any of our relatives listed as victims of the Holocaust
D. The valet that was murdered along with the Tzar and his family was Alexi
Trupp. My cousin believes that this man could not have been Jewish and
working closely with the Tzar.

....Because of these things, he reasons that the family that came from
Germany/Prussia to the Ukraine was not Jewish. When faced with the dissmal
situation in the Ukraine, the family became desperate to leave the country.
The only way they were able to do so was to convert to Judaism (as Jews
were being pushed away)

I disagree with this totally. I can not believe that people >from that
culture/religion would convert to Judaism

As far as I know, my great grandfather born in 1840 was raised a Jew and
the family has always been Jewish.

Opinions?
Thank you!

EISENBERG update #general

IRSWED <irswed@...>
 

I Just received the SS application for Anna BROWDY. I had been told that
she and her husband Mendel were somehow related to my husband's
EISENBERGS / PERLEMANS. How we weren't sure. I now think that her father
Morris and our David were brothers. This is what we just found out:

The paper informs us that Anna BROWDY was the daughter of Jeanette
PELTONOVICH and Morris EISENBERG.

Anna's daughters names: Jeanette and Sylvia.
She listed her address c/o KISS in New Milford, NJ

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

TIA, Irene Swedroe, Ca. IRSWED@...

I checked the California death records recently put on line for
my grandfather who died in 1939 in Santa Monica, CA. There is
no listing. Is this because he was not a resident but just
visiting? I have a copy of his California death certificate.

Re: Naming a Child After First Wife Question #general

Barbara <bleckstein@...>
 

Recently, Anita Citron <anitac1@...> asked:
Would/could the child of a second wife be named after a dead first
wife??? >>

In my husband's family the second wife was the sister of the first and
the first child of that marriage was named after the first wife.
Since it was not that uncommon to marry a sibling of the deceased
spouse I don't think finding a child named after the first spouse
would be that unusual.

I believe that if the mother is Jewish, the daughter is also. Rabbi Lewis,
when he was at Touro Synagogue in Newport, accepted my daughter, whose
father was born Catholic, as a student in religious school. A friend of
hers, whose mother was not Jewish, was not acceptable to Rabbi Lewis, who
was a wonderful Irishman in charge of a Sephardic synagogue. It turns out,
however, that my husband's family were probably conversos anyway.
