Fw: Looking for assistance finding Brana Godel B: 14 Sep 1895 Tecso, Maramaros #subcarpathia

Alice Bennett <a-bennett@...>
 

Hello

I am hoping someone can help me. I am trying to find out what ever
became of Brana Godel. Twin sister to Marton Godel, daughter of
Pinkasz Godel and Etya Lebovits.

Someone was kind enough to find Brana's birth record but we know
nothing after her birth.
Tecso circumscription - nr. 362
-- 9454 - 128 and 129/1895 - 1895. sept. 14. - birth of Brana and
Marton Godel - father
Pinkasz Godel merchant >from Sziget, mother Lebovits Etya >from
Szeklence, residence Tecso

Did she marry?
Did she survive WWII?
Did she have a family?
We would like to know of her life and if we can find any living
relatives.

Can anyone help me to determine if this work can be done within the
States Archives in Kyiv and Lviv? Of course it would be wonderful
to have someone who frequents the library to do these look ups at no
charge but I am willing to pay a small some if someone is willing to
take on this task.

Please contact me and let me know if you can help.

Thank you so much in advance!!

Searching Sure FUCHS adopted as Sarah SMITH, Ratno, Ukrainian War Orphan 1921 #general

Valerie Fox
 

Searching: Sure FUCHS, Ratno, Ukraine,
Ukrainian orphan born in 1912,
adopted as Sarah SMITH family, Canada

Dear Jewishgenners,

Montreal, Quebec holds the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archives,
Harry Hershman Ukrainian War Orphans Collection.

Sure FUCHS, born in Ratno, Ukraine came to Canada with 150 other
orphans and landed in Quebec City, August 1921. According to the
form filled in, in Yiddish in 1920, Sure FUCHS was born in Ratno
in 1912. Her mother's name is Ester, and her father's name is Zisa.
Her father died of tuberculosis (1920) and her mother and her two
siblings were killed by the Bolsheviks (1920).

Sure was under the guardianship of Leizer FUCHS, her uncle and her
"Bubba" (Yiddish for grandmother) who were living in Ratno. According
to the Archives Director, "Our internal information about this file
says she was adopted into the SMITH family, given the name Sarah SMITH.
No city listed for the adopted family.

Due to privacy laws, there is no other information. My husband's
father was also Leizer FUKS who was born in Ratno and immigrated to
Canada.

If anyone knows the SMITH family who adopted Sara, Sure, who lived
in Canada in 1921, we hope to find a member of her family and reconnect.

Please email us privately if you can help.

Thanks very much,

Valerie Miller Fox

Tarnow - more Jewish vital record scans online #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

More scans of Jewish vital records >from Tarnow are now viewable online
at szukajwarchiwach.pl. Most, but not all, of these scans correspond
to records in the public indices on JRI-Poland.org.

To view the scans, first go to the list of groups of records, sorted
by type (e.g., birth, marriage, death) and date, at:

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/33/276/0/str/1/200?ps=True#tabJednostki

Note the last column on the right, Number of Scans/Liczba Skanow. If
that is 0, there are no scans available for the group.

Clicking the title of a group (e.g., Ksiega urodzen) will bring up an
overview page, with a red tab at the top. Click the link to the right
of the red tab, Scans/Skany. This will lead to a group of thumbnail
images, 15 per page by default.

Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge it. On the enlarged image, there
is an icon near the bottom right that looks like a white rectangle on
a black circle -- clicking that will open a new window to display a
high-resolution image. Because of the size of the high-resolution
image, it might not be fully visible on your screen, but you can
click, hold, and drag it with your mouse to change the visible region.
To save a high-resolution image to your computer, click the
Download/Pobierz link below the image, in the bottom center.

I have not examined these scans carefully, and I regret that I am not
able to offer individual assistance.

Seekung DRECHSLERs that became HARRIS #general

DaveHMD <dorsharris@...>
 

Shimon DRECHSLER left Siemiatycz, Poland (Grodno Gubernia) in 1898
for New York. Shimon's brother, Isidore Drechsler followed in 1904.
Within a year or two of arriving, both brothers took the surname
HARRIS. In 1907 and 1909, two nephews (sons of a deceased third
brother) arrived, manifested as Shloime (b. ~1887) and Gershon
(b. ~1900) Drechsler. In the 1910 Census, Shloime became David
Drechsler and Gershon became Irv Drechsler.

I have been unable to track them after that time and believe they
also took the Harris surname.

Do any of the JewishGen readers have Harris family members that
changed their name >from Drechsler or similar?

Would greatly appreciate any help on this one. Thank you,
David Harris
