Seeking Info On Kolomyja Survivor List #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

I have in my possession a printed list of some 800 persons who
survived the Holocaust and were former residents of Kolomyja. The
listing provides, surname, given name or initials, street name and
number. I plan to put the list on the Kolomea Administrative District
web site. Before I do that I wish to obtain some information on this
list. If you can help, please contact me directly.

I seek: (1) name(s) of creator(s) of the list; (2) date of the list,
and (3) if the list is currently on some web site.

Searching for Romanian families who lived in the 1800's #romania

Rennie and Jack Salz <jrsalz@...>
 

I have searched Jewish and Italian Gen. and Ellis Island for these people
without much success. Some of these names are duplicated on many lists but
are not the people for whom I am searching. I am seeking more information
about the families of the persons mentioned below:

Zalman VEXLER (Husi) married to Reiza TUCHERMAN (Husi) in1885
Simon VEXLER (Husi) married toReiza Marcu (Husi) in 1871
Marcu MARCOVICI (Husi) married to Sura Creinta GROSSMAN (Husi and Iasi) in
1868
Leiba sin Oizer DESCALU (Drancini) married to a Golda MARCOVICI (Husi) in
1870
Shmuel Lieb MARKOWITZ and son Nathaniel MARCOVICI (Husi)
Lou and Cerna MARKOWITZ perhaps buried in Tampa Florida
Mali VEXLER (Husi) married to a FIRESTEIN in Husi in 1860's
Labe DAVID married to an Adel in 1860's I think
Hanna MARCUS (Husi) married to JOSEP SOLOMON MARCOVICI in 1860's
Lazar MARCOVICI (Husi) born in 1820's
Cannie MARCOVICI HOFFMAN born in Husi but living in NY in 1910

Re: The Search for Sepharad - BBC Radio 3 #general

Well, not quite. An ancient Hebrew place-name "Sefarad" does appear once
in the bible (Obadiah 1:20); but scholars have pointed out that in the
biblical context, Sefarad did not mean Spain. It meant a place in Asia
Minor -- probably the place later known as Sardis. Apparently Asia Minor
is called " Saparda" (obviously the same word as Sefarad in ancient
Persian cuneiform manuscripts.

In Jewish culture, Sefarad came to mean Spain only in rabbinic times --in
fact, probably not before the early middle ages. (Before then, Spain is
referred to in rabbinic literature as Espania or Espamia.)
See this piece by Seth Ward of the University of Denver on the same topic
http://www.du.edu/~sward/sepharad.html.

It expands substantially on what Judith says - it suggests that the term was
in common use by the early 8th century.

ZULTY family #general

franck
 

I am trying to research my family and would appreciate any help you can
offer to find out what happened to my relatives during the Second World War.
The family members I am trying to research were Smuelis and Nechama ZULTY.
I do not know their exact residence before WWII, but in 1942 they were
imprisoned in the Vilnius Ghetto. Smuelis was born in 1915 , was a baker
and would have been 27 years-old when put in the ghetto. Nechama was born
in 1929, was a tailor/seamstress, and would have been 13 years-old when put
in the ghetto.

I know little about where my ZULTY family came >from but I do know that some
of the family came >from the Minsk guberniya and others >from the
Tiktin/Tykocin area. My grandfather, David ZOLTY, was born in Radomsko,
Poland.

I am French and my English is limited. This message I am posting was
translated for me. If you can reply to me in French, it would be greatly
appreciated. If you do not know French, then I will have your replies
translated. I mention this because the language issue limits my ability to
quickly and efficiently utilize the Jewishgen website. In advance, thank
you for your help.

ZOLTY family #general

franck
 

In trying to reconstitute my family tree, I am researching a brother of my
grandfather, Moses ZOLTY. The surname is ZOLTY (or Ziolty, Zulty, or Zloty
based on the various spellings prevalent in different members of my family
who came >from different areas). Moses was the son of Yehezkiel ZOLTY
(1859-1939) and of Bruchla ZOLTA (1863-1935). >from the information I have,
he would have died during his military service during World War One
(1914-1918). He lived in Radmosko and therefore would have served in a
division of the army which was conscripted >from that area. I would be very
appreciative if you could help me find out if and how it might be possible
to find out more information either in a military archive or elsewhere.

Thank you and best regards,

My parents came to the US in 1923 via Ellis Island. Yet, when they talked
about old times with their friends (in Yiddish, of course) the words Ellis
Island were never heard. Instead, I would hear them speak of "Kessel
Gurten." Obviously, for many Yiddish speaking immigrants, this was the
generic term for their first stop in the New World.
