Plug in the name Paul Nowak, and nothing comes up. But plug in the
plot details, if one has them, and.. hey presto...up comes Paul Nowak.
Go figure!"

The explanation is quite simple.
He appears under the surname NOVAK - not NOWAK.

Still Searching for EPSTEIN from Liverpool #general

GSEaston@...
 

I am still searching for my ancestor Zolnick EPSTEIN who went >from Europe to
Liverpool. His father was Jacob and his mother was Florence. His siblings
(Samuel, Dora, Joseph, Sophie, Morris, and more) ended up in the United States
and my descendant, Samuel, ended up in Chicago.

Zolnick's children in England are Doris, Frieda, Isaac, Rebecca, and Belle.
(I do not believe we are related to Brian Epstein of Beatles fame.)

Any connections?

Montreal and Boston exchange of services #general

I wonder if there is a Montrealer out there who would be willing to
take some photographs of several matzevahs and a monument at the
Mount Royal Cemetery in Montreal in exchange for my doing a
reasonably similar service in the Boston area. Please respond privately.

Re: Importance of SIGs for specialist postings - with ref. to Austria -Czech SIG #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

I would like to suggest that, at least in connection with this question, the
so-called General Discussion Group is very definitely the place for a
detailed answer. The Hapsburg Empire covered much more territory than that
on which the Austria-Czech SIG focuses and the answer would apply to all
parts of that empire. If the "best" answer appears in a SIG list, it could
be cross-posed by someone following both lists, or it could be built into an
InfoFile.

There are certainly questions that might receive more answers, or even more
knowledgeable answers, if posted to the discussion of a particular SIG, but
newer researchers will often begin in the wider lists as they may not start
out knowing more than the general area >from which their ancestors came in
the 19th or early 20th centuries. As their focus narrows, a simple mention
in the more general discussion lists can point them to the more specific.
But there will always be "newer researchers" so a single notice in a general
list will not sweep the more specific questions into the SIG discussions for
all time, or even for a very long time.

Re: Gailzion Kroenlande, Austria #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

This is nothing more than a German language form of the name of what we now
call Galicia, a Province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

It was properly rendered as "Galizien" rather than "Gailzion". The
difference may result >from a difficult to read handwriting or a clerk in a
foreign land misunderstanding what was said.
Galicia was a "Kroenlande" (crown land), "Koenigsreich," or royal province,
of the Austrian Crown - as distinct >from the Hungarian Crown - within the
Austro-Hungarian Empire.

It translates as a Crown land Galicia.
