KOLOMEIR search #romania

Maureen <bride108@...>
 

I am searching for Kolomeir. The Kolomeir brothers
built a synagogue in
Piatra Neamt, Romania, mid 1800's. The family was
involved in
Chassidus. There is a branch in Montreal, Canada (i am
from the Montreal
family). I appreciate any information I can obtain.
Variants are KOLLMER, KOLOMEER, KOLOMER. The name
probably derives >from the town Kolomey.

Quoting and attribution of postings - was re: KAWALIK etc #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Two days ago I sent in a clear, factual posting on the name KAWALIK/KAWALICK as
found in: Vienna [cemetery records] and London [marriage record]; Google search;
the JGFF.

Not being a Polish speaker, I made no complex deductions about its origins. I
wrote about the existence of the name and that it does not appear to be that
common! By this evening, after three linguistic analyses by Stan Goodman and
Alex Sharon, I am amused to read that the original posting is now attributed to
Stan! Read this:

On Sat, 29 Apr 2006 19:35:14 UTC, a.sharon@shaw.ca (Alexander Sharon) opined:
"Stan Goodman" wrote >> There is a bona-fide surname KAWALIK/KAWALICK and
if you google it you will find a modern-day Marc KAWALICK - the name does not
appear to be very common.>>

Well, I wonder if any of you could guess that I originally wrote that sentence
<there is a bona-fide surname KAWALIK/KAWALICK and if you google it etc>?

I am delighted that others have found the subject *that interesting*, but this
again shows how careful one has to be when one quotes, double quotes and triple
quotes. Correct quoting and attributions should always be high on the list of
priorities of a writer.

But to get back to KAWALIK: the name and close variants as found amongst Jews in
Vienna [most probably Galician] are: KAWALIK, KAVALEK, KAUVALIK, KAWALEK,
KOWALIK, KAWALER and KAWALETZ,

There is only one KOWALSKI {Israel} buried in the huge Jewish cemetery in Vienna
but lots of CHRISTIAN name-sakes. And also, very luckily, there are relatively
few holocaust victims of that name.

And that is as far as I am going to wade into "KOWALSKI, the Polish-Jewish
blacksmith" debate.

U.S. Census Undercounts - Clarification of Correction #general

Randy Stehle
 

In my correction to my original posting on census undercounts, I said that the
lack of a decimal point (which occurred after I sent my message)made the 1880
undercount 64% instead of the correct 6.4%. I forgot to say that the 1890 census
undercount for Manhattan and the West Bronx was 13% (thirteen), *not* 1.3%

SUWALKI-LOMZA SIG - Data Extracts for Szaki and Szczuczyn #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

The last issue of the “Landsmen” (Vol. 15, Nos. 3-4) had two errors
concerning our latest acquisition of civil record extracts for the
following two towns:

(1) Szaki (Lithuanian Suwalki Gubernia). This an error of omission.
In addition to the extracts already published in our last issue
we have on hand the 1820-1821 births held over >from last issue
and the births for 1817-1819.

All of these extracts will be published in our next issue along with
extracts of marriages c. 1841-1852. This work on Szaki Jewish civil
records is being done by Vilnius Archives staff exclusively for the
Suwalk-Lomza SIG. The Mormons did not microfilm these records on
their recent trips to Vilnius.

(2) Szczuczyn (Lomza Gubernia): An error of commission.
The last issue of the “Landsmen” incorrectly stated that work for
this town c.1808-1825 was for data extracts of the birth records.
The new work in progress is for the death records in this period.
[Extracts of all extant Szczuczyn birth and marriage records
c.1808-1825 were published in earlier “Landsmen” issues].

Researchers not familiar with the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group
and its journal “Landsmen” are invited to view our website at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/SuwalkLomza >.

Who is the Handsome Young Man with Hinda Frajman of Kosow Lacki? (Viewmate) #poland

JACOB SUSAN JURISZ <suejurisz@...>
 

I have posted a photo on Viewmate taken in Warsaw, circa 1935. It is a
picture of my mother-in-law, Helen (Hinda) Frajman and a handsome young man.
She looks about 17 or 18 years old, so that would mean the photo was taken
in about 1935.

She was born and raised in Kosow Lacki, Poland, a small village not far from
Treblinka. Her mother was Brajna Manowicz Frajman, and her grandparents
owned a general store in Kosow Lacki.

The direct link to this file is:
