Re: Archives in Ukraine #subcarpathia

Amos Israel Zezmer <amos.zezmer@...>
 

Maybe we should collect all these experiences and send them to the
President of Ukraine (a very progressive leader) so that he knows
exactly what's going on. It's all so frustrating.

(Mod Note: It would be like sending coals to Newcastle.)

I experienced similar "roadblocks" in my research in Uzhgorod and other
towns in the Carpathian region. Seems to me that many archives view
their holdings as personal property.

Re: Kalisz Hospital #general

Marianna <mariannah@...>
 

Hello,
The hospital was established in 1837 by doctor Michal Morgenstern. It was
located at the corner of Piskorzewska Street and (today) Parczewskiego Str.
It survived until October 1939 when German bombs destroyed some parts of it.
Renovation started in November and soon after that he hospital was working
again (If you're interested in its war-time personnel, please let me know).
It was used by the Jewish population of Kalisz and ghettos and labor camps from
its surroundings.
In the summer of 1940 the hospital was closed, partially pulled down,
and changed into a labor camp.
Majority of the patients and medical personnel was murdered in November 1940.

There is a chance that some documents survived and are kept in the Kalisz
Archive - for sure administrative documents on the hospital but I don't know
documents about the patients. You should ask in the archive.

regards,
Marianna Hoszowska
Warsaw, Poland


My g-g-g-grandmother, Laja SZYLAK, died in Kalisz, 1884. Her death
certificate says she died in a Jewish hospital. Does any one know anything
about Jewish hospital in Kalisz and any records that might exist >from there?

A high school autograph book >from 1918-20 recently came into my
possession. It is >from Makow Mazowiecki in Poland, and all the entries are in
Yiddish or Polish. There are 60 pages. Most of the entries are probably typical
school child rhymes, etc., but I would like to get the entries translated. As it

Re: [Puzzling Words] Temele #general

Wegner, Peter
 

Temele is a Yiddish diminutive for the Russian-Yiddish name Tema.
Any time we see "-le" at the end of a name we should subtract it as being a
"diminutive" and then see if we can recognize the name.

By coincidence, there is a name Tema in the Bible (he's one of the sons of Ishmael
in Genesis 25:15). But this has absolutely nothing to do with the Yiddish girl's
name Tema. The biblical name comes >from Teman (which is Hebrew for "the South"
and therefore also the Hebrew name for Yemen). (The implication of the list in
Genesis 25:15 is that Ishmael fathered many Arab tribes, including Tema, the
ancestor of the Yemenites. But, as I said, this is totally unconnected with the
Russian girl's name Tema.

Do you think that Temele could be for Tilly (Matilda)? That's the only
one that makes sense to us. Is Temele a diminutive for another name? In
other words, if she was born in Warsaw, what name should we be looking
for on a birth record?
