recommend that you take a look at the first two explanatory screencasts at

The database is adding 182 new cemeteries along with updates or additions to
an additional 130 cemeteries >from 26 countries. Since last year's
conference, JOWBR has added close to 300,000 records to the database which

records are now "live" additional description files, maps and overview
photos for these new cemeteries will be made available shortly.)

Lodz Area Research Group #Lodz #Poland Searching Davidowicz and Fishlowitz from Lodz #lodz #poland

Alise Kermisch <warmund@...>
 

Hello!

I am hoping someone will be able to help me - I have just sourced my great
grandparents immigration >from Lodz to the US in 1913 and I am now seeking
information on their parents and siblings. Should any of the following
details look familiar to you or if you have any tips for where I can search
for more information I would appreciate you emailing me at Warmund@....

Here is the information I know:
Adele (AKA: Alte) Davidowicz was born in Lodz 1875 per the ship manifest
into Ellis Island. Per her grave, her father's name is Avraham Itzhak
Davidowicz. Avraham was married at least 2 times, as I am in contact with
descendants of the second marriage. I do not know Adele's mother's name, but
her step mother is Ruchel Leah. In addition to Adele, Avraham Itzhak
Davidowicz had at least 3 other children with Ruchel Leah: Gitla/Gutcha born
about 1886, Ida/Yiti born about 1879, and Baila DOB unknown. Adele married
Isaac (AKA: Chaim Yitzhak) Fischlewicz before immigrating to the USA, but I
would assume since their oldest child together was born in 1890 their
marriage would be about that time. Isaac Fischlewicz was born in Lodz in
1862 and per his grave stone his father was Milton/ Mesholam Fischlewicz.
His mothers given name is Jetta per Isaac's death certificate.

I am hoping to find additional information about siblings (already
identified and unknown) and the parents. Any help will be greatly
appreciated!
