Bucharest to Bombay to New York? #general

Sheri <iguana7slp@...>
 

I'm trying to find information on a family named JUROVSKY that arrived in
New York in 1941. They were Russians who had been living in Bucharest, and
according the the passenger list they embarked >from Bombay India. Their
passports were issued in Bombay just a few days before they set sail in
August.

Is it possible to get copies of passport applications >from Bombay? Why
would they travel >from Bucharest to Bombay to get to New York? Would there
be any other records >from Romania I could search? I have been unable to
find any traces of them after their arrival in the US.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Wietze Cemetery, Germany #general

Hi all,

I have uncovered a few different ITS records >from Bad Arolsen which states
that my father's first cousin died >from an illness in June 1945. Her last
known address was Belson, and she was buried at Wietze Cemetery. One of the
records even details the exact burial plot location. On one record the
cemetery is listed as Wietze-Kurhaus; on another Wietze Kr. Celle. Does
anyone know exactly where this cemetery might be. We are interested in
locating her gravesite.

If it would help, I can email the relevant ITS records to anyone who might
be able to help.

Thanks in advance,

Gershon Markowitz

Re: GOLDMAN and Zwehill (?) Dynasty... #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Karen Roekard <roekard@...> asked about a Hasidic dynasty
possibly named "Zwehill". with connections to the town Brzezany
(now Berezhany) and to the surname GOLDMAN.

The town now known as Novohrad Volynskyy, Ukraine, was called
Zvhil in Yiddish. Other alternate names include Zviagel, Zvihil,
Zvil, Zwiahl, and Zwiahel. (See the JewishGen Communities Database
<http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~shtetm~-1048276>.)

A little googling led to a Wikipedia article about the Zhvil
Hasidic dynasty, which originated with Rabbi Moshe of Zvhil:
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zvhil_(Hasidic_dynasty)>
According to this article, Rabbi Moshe's son was Yechiel Michl
GOLDMAN.

Novohrad Volynskyy / Zhvil -- 143 miles northeast of Berezhany --
was in the Russian province of Volhynia before World War I.
However, Rabbi Moshe's father, Rabbi Yechiel Michl, was the
Maggid of Zlotshev (Zolochiv) -- a once Galician town that's 24
miles north of Berezhany.

thank you for your responses

However, I don't know if the person listed on the 1920 census

Re: Galicia Towns #poland

Eric, you can see four birth records (1879-1890) for this couple on JRI-
Poland, in Narajow. They show that Osias' wife Fradel Schrenzel, came
from Rykow.
The actual records are in the AGAD archives and they will have Fradel's
parents' names and other non-indexed information. I will be placing an
order there next Monday, if you are interested.

I am trying to pinpoint where my great grandparents, Oscar STERN
and Fradel (SZRENZIL) STERN are from. The information I have shows
that in 1871 they lived in Narajow, in 1877 they lived in Piniaki,
and in the 1880s and 1890s they lived in Rykow and Narajow.
According to JewishGen, these towns have multiple combinations
of possibilities. I assume they are all not too far >from each
other, but I am having a hard timing pinning down the correct
towns. Any suggestions?
