Part II: foreign book orders #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

The accounting department for Wheatmark advices the following for those in
the United Kingdom: Bertrams will be handling the book so you should buy the
book through their distribution network in the U.K. (called "resellers") to
save on shipping costs.

For those in Israel: I am working with Wheatmark to come up with a plan. The
shipping cost plus the exchange rate makes the book VERY expensive. One
possibility is to have the Jewish genealogy societies put in a group order.
Please hold off on ordering for the time being unless you don't mind the
cost.

If those of you in Australia can work with your Jewish genealogy societies
to generate a group order, the shipping price will work out better.

For those in other countries outside of the U.S.: contact Hayley Love at
accounts@wheatmark.com or call 510 798-3306 extension 100. Shipping is
different for each country so the queries are handled individually.

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,
You may have already heard about "Some Jewish Families of Hesse and
Galicia" by Nathan M. Reiss, but did you know it's now available in the
JewishGenMall?.
Representing 40 years of research, the book includes information on over
9,000 persons, is over 1,100 pages in length and includes hundreds of
photos, maps and diagrams, as well as biographical information about family
members. It also includes extensive historical information on the Jewish
communities of the various ancestral towns, and on the Jews of Germany and
Galicia.
The families in the book >from towns in and near Galicia (now Poland) are:

DYNER, FREYLICH, GOLDBLUM, JAKUBOWICZ, MOSKOWICZ, TOBJASZ, MELLER,
SZLAMOWICZ (Olkusz), and KRIEGER (Oswiecim, Malec, Osiek, Kety) but even
if these are not the surnames you are researching, the
extensive Table of Contents provides an in depth listing of material that
will surely whet the appetite of any genealogist searching family in Galicia.

"Some Jewish Families...." is a large sized hard cover book containing a
treasure trove of information and may possibly provide a connection to your
own research, if not immediately, perhaps in the future. It deserves a
spot on the bookshelf of any researcher interested in Galicia since it
is such an expansive resource. To review the Table of Contents please to

Help with finding the BODNICK family (originally from Philadelphia) #belarus

Darren Dalcher <D.Dalcher@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Can anyone suggest a way of contacting the children of Gertrude BODNICK
from Philadelphia?
Gertrude was born Gertrude BANKOWSKI in Pinsk (around 1914) -- I believe
she passed away in Philadelphia in 1998. My grandfather, Raphael
Bankowski and Gertrude were the only known survivors >from the family. We
had an emotional meeting with Gertrude in Philadelphia in 1975 but did
not meet her children. She had a son named Sheldon and a daughter who
got married. I believe that Sheldon was an engineer and have been told
that he possibly may have moved to New Jersey.

I am trying to piece together details about members of the family who
perished in Pinsk, but would need the help of Gertrude's children.
However I have no idea how to find either one of the children.

If you know the family, or have any suggestions about how to find
Sheldon or his sister, please respond privately.

Thank you in advance.

Re: The name ROSE #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Saul Marks has sent in an nice reply to my
mini-project on his family listings in the censuses of
England 1851-1901 and as often happens in these
situations - something more exciting has emerged.

The transcription error for Fanny Samuel in the 1861
census was on a well-known genealogy site and it is
perhaps excusable as the handwriting is difficult to
decipher. It does however show that the transcribers
do not cross-check with other censuses where the name
may be easier to read - they just enter a nonsense
name [Liamay!].

Saul writes: It really is a mystery as to where Fanny
was born [she was 9 in 1861]. He tells us that Henry,
Fanny's father already arrived in 1849. The evidence
for this arrival in the UK in 1849 <is the appearance
of a "Hanchen Doberzinsko" on a register of alien
arrivals >from Hamburg, dated 15 June 1849. **He's**
alone, however, so my guess is that Hanna was left in
Germany & came over later, or else he went back for
her & they came back together. Alternatively, they
married here, but there's simply no evidence for
anything. The register of arrivals covered some (but
by no means all) German, Prussian & Polish aliens
arriving in London >from Hamburg during the period
1836-52. If Hanna had arrived in, say, 1853, ....>.

I really had to laugh at this because although there
is a nursery rhyme "Hanschen klein ging allein ..."
referring to a diminutive Hans, the petname *Hanchen*
generally refers to Hanna or Johanna. I very much
doubt if an adult Heinrich would be registered as
*Hanchen* on a boat manifest.

Thus the whole family migration history can probably
be rewritten as a result of these three postings -
Heinrich DOBERZINSKO was probably already in London by
1849 and married to Hanna [Hanchen] ne SCHELINSKI who
followed him in 1849. Their daughter Fanny was most
probably born in London in 1852 or thereabouts.

That will have to be proven by trying to find her
birth certificate in London. A Jewishgen success
story hopefully.

Voloner Forest in Poland #general

Avigdor&Laia <lbendov@...>
 

I couldn't find Volon, but Blonie 5211-2320 was a close guess.
It is situated W. of Brest nr. the Bug River and would make a grand hideout
for AK bandits or Jews in hiding. It's also close to the Belarus border of
today.
All these factors point to Blonie as possibly Volon which I am searching
for. But what is the purpose of adding Wyszonki-Blonie to the Polish name of
the town? (I realize there are more than a few towns with the same name!)

Duda as first name #romania

Sam Wolff <baalh@...>
 

There is a probable relative of mine buried in the
Jewish cemetery at Craiova, Romania whose first name
is Duda. I found the name in the registry, but was not
able to visit the actual tombstone due to the poor
conditions of the cemetery (water accumulation,
overgrowth, people who didn't know exactly where it
was located). Can any native Romanian speakers advise
me as to whether this name would imply a male or a
female? Can it be a nickname for David?

With thanks,
