Thank you to all the Genners that responded to my posting regarding my great uncle.
All felt that he was located in Mount Kisco, NY. I will take the search there in
person, looking for records in their library.

I tried to respond and thank each person who sent me an email, but in case I missed
anyone...thank you. You are a wonderful group of people, and a great resource.

There are a lot of Grodzinskis and Grodzinskys, not just the bakery people. There are
a bunch in Buffalo, my cousins, as well. Some in Cleveland, Akron, and other places
as well. In the records of Poland,Grodzinski is not uncommon.

Hi - there is no Mount Kivak in NY that I know of and I'm a lifelong New Yorker,
but there is a Mount Kisco, about 15 miles >from Peekskill, and I'd bet that is what
was meant.

It's not clear >from what you way whether you are looking at the actual record or an
abstract, but if it's an abstract, a transcription error would easily explain the
difference.

good luck - Judith Singer

I am stumped on figuring out where my great uncle lived after he arrived in New

"Mount Kivak, New York."

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Levin, Dutserovich and Volf in same household #lithuania

Linda Kelley
 

In the 1816 Revision List for Raseiniai, Lithuania, there was [Page
221, Registration #134] Zelik Levin, b. 1781, son of Yankel, Zelik's
wife, Sora, b. 1789, their daughter, Krasna, b. 1805. They had come
from Ariogala in 1815.
In the same household: Abram Dutserovich, son of Eliash, b. 1796, his
wife, Beyla, b. 1793, Movsha Volf/Wolf, son of Velvel, b. 1781, his
wife, Feyga, b. 1784, and their daughter, Sheva, b. 1811. They all
came >from Ariogala in 1815.

I'm wondering if the women were sisters, or what the connection was
for these three families. Please respond if your ancestors were in
this household.

[I have Wolfs >from Raseiniai: Hirsh/Girsh, a glazier, and two sons,
Moshe and Note. Note/Nathan was my great grandfather. Hirsh/Girsh was
probably born before 1826 and died before 1884.]

Thank you!!!

Children from Frankfurt-update #france

Debbie Lifshitz
 

First, a thank you to all those who have written either on the SIG
or privately with suggestions and information. Everything was most
useful! I have received 10 names of children >from the OSE and have
been able to track most of them.

I found several children leaving for the United States >from Morocco in
1942!! I have no idea how they would have gotten >from Bourbach-le-Haut
or Bourboule to Casablanca. Any ideas?

Also two children were taken over the Pyrenees to Spain (no date but
obviously during the war, otherwise they could have travelled more
comfortably) and in 1948 arrived in the new State of Israel. How many
children followed this route and who took them over the Pyrenees?

Another child was in Switzerland in 1943. How did she get there?

And finally, a child -- travelling alone-- left >from Rotterdam in 1940
to the United States. She too, had been in Bourbach and/or Bourboule.
As far as I could tell all these children were alone. Some had a
brother or sister, but no other family member traveling with them.
Any information on the transmigration of foreign children in France
would be very helpful!!

Thank you all,
Debbie Lifschitz

Bibliographic look-up #france

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Dear Friends,

I have been trying in vain to get a bibliographic reference and wonder
whether any of you might be have suggestions or be able to help.
In 1969 Moche Catane wrote a short article about my grandfather in the
Tribune Juive (which had replaced the Bulletin de nos communautes).
His column was called "Lettre de Jerusalem" and this particular'
letter' was called Une retraite Active. It probably appeared sometime
between October and December of 1969.
If anyone can find the article and send me a reference I would be very
grateful! (Issue number, page number, date...)

Please reply privately.
All the best,
Debbie Lifschitz

Folks,

Is there an online database where I could lookup the record for a cousin who lived
in Manhattan and I believe may have legally changed his surname?

I am looking for the marriage certificate for Haym Salomon. He married
Rachel Franks in January, 1777. How do I go about in ordering his
certificate? The Old Municipal Archives in NYC don't go back that far.

Thank you!
