Katowice Archives records #poland

Israel P
 

I plan to place an order with the Katowice Archves at the beginning of
next week.

I would be pleased to have anyone interested join me.

Please make sure that the record(s) that you want appear(s) in the JRI-
Poland database and that the words "Katowice Archives" appear in the
heading of the search results.

There is a summary of the available records in the Katowice Archives
at http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/psakatowice.htm and I have no
knowledge of my own. I have never ordered >from the Katowice Archives
before and cannot speak responsibly about how long it takes etc. (I'm
just a regular guy who needs to place an order and wants help covering
bank expenses etc.)

This order will be >from the Archives, not >from the Civil Records Office.

Speak with me or write to me privately regarding details.

Subject: Identifying GRZYMALOW #poland

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@...>
 

Dear All,

I am most grateful for the large number of responses I have received
on this (they are still coming in).... The overwhelming view was that
the place mentioned in the manifest was referring to GRIMALOW/V,
GRYZMALOW, GRIMAYLOV. Regardess of these differences, it was thought
to be at Latitude 49, 21, 0 and Longitude 26 0 0 and Nr. Skalat.
This all places it in Ukraine.

However, when I search Google maps for Gryzmalow, as well as the one
in Ukraine, I get 2 further hits - one in Miechow County (just north
of Krakow) and one in Opoczno County (south-west of Lodz). This latter
would make more sense (much more than Ukraine) in terms of family
origins.

My question is whether either of these 2 current Polish locations would
have been considered as being in Galicia in 1922.

Thanks for your responses

Regards
Christopher GOULD/London UK

Seeking descendants of Jacob and Sophie WEINTRAUB in New York #general

NATALIE LAMB
 

I am trying to trace descendants of Jacob WEINTRAUB and his wife Sophie nee
GOLDMAN or GONDELMAN or HANDELMAN.

Jacob and Sophie married in London, England in June 1901 when they were both
aged about 22 years.

According to the marriage certificate, Jacob was the son of Hyman WEINTRAUB,
who had died before Jacob's marriage took place. I have not been able to
trace them on the 1901 English census and do not know where Jacob was born.

Sophie was the sister of Solomon GOLDMAN and was living with him and his
family before her marriage, when the 1901 English census was done. Since
Solomon GOLDMAN was born in Briceni, Bessarabia, it is likely that his
sister Sophie was also born there.

Jacob and Sophie emigrated to New York some time between 1901 and 1909, and
lived in Brooklyn. They may have had a daughter called Marion. I have been
told that later on they lived in Ossining, Westchester County, New York.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at
Natalie.Lamb@...

Many thanks
