FHC polish microfilms #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Guys

Taking some more excellent advice >from my fellow genners, I did a search
of some Polish microfilms and I am looking for some advice on the results:
=
1. I have found microfilms for Konopiska where my KAMM ancestor was born
in 1824, I am therefore hoping that I might find the marriage banns for
his parents Abraham KAMM and Halka SZMUEL in the church records for that
area, I will let you know how I get on.
=
2. For my Posen ancestors, I have found a reference to the Microfilm of
the Naturalised Jews of Posen 1834/1835 I am assuming that this is a
reference to the same publication that Lars Menk and some others have
access to and have already provided me information from.
There is also reference to a list of Posen Jewish Families >from
1800-1850 FHL 1334544 which is in Hebrew and Yiddish, and I was
wondering if anyone had experience or information >from this film as I do
not speak or read Hebrew or Yiddish.

3. I have 2 ancestors born in Ogrodzieniec which I assumed was nr Pilica
as this is where one of their children was born. But it isn't. Does
anyone know what area the Jewish records for this town might be held
under as there are only church records listed on the FHC website.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

all the best to you all

Re: Question regarding cemetery sections #general

Aaron Fink asks whether the name of the burial society plot indicates
that the deceased came >from that town.

I posted a similar question to this group a few years ago and the
consensus was that burial in the plot owned by a landsmanshaft was not
necessarily an indication of membership in that society. Burial plots
could, I gather, be bought >from landsmanshaft members by non-members.


That said, it's a good guess that the person in question had some sort
of relationship with a member of the landsmanshaft, so it's a lead worth
following.

Fw: SITE CITE: MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai) Shtetl Memorial Website #latvia #courland

Ella Barkan <elbarkan@...>
 

I am forwarding Ilan GANOT's message about Mazheik website.

This site will be of interest to Latvian researchers since many Jews moved
from Lithuania to Latvia, including some of my mother's relatives the AVRECH
family who resided in Mazheik and some moved to Liepaja in 1879.

There is a lot of information on this site including pictures and documents.

Subject: SITE CITE: MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai) Shtetl Memorial Website

The memorial website to the destroyed Shtetl of MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai in
Lithuanian) has been transferred >from its temporary private website to its
permanent home: the JewishGen's ShtetLinks.

Mazheik was a small Jewish Shtetl, situated at the northwestern part of
Lithuania, close to the Latvian border.

As with many other Shtetls, Jewish life in Mazheik came to its tragic end in
August 1941, when local Lithuanians initiated and executed mass murder of
most of the local Jewish population.
The MAZHEIK Shtetl Memorial Website was initiated and established by a group
of volunteers, children and grandchildren of Jewish natives of Mazheik,
taking upon them the mission of preserving the memory of this vanished
community.

The new web address of the homepage is:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Mazeikiai/introduction.html

The main sections of the website are:

Re: Berkeley Street, Manchester, England #general

Rica Goldberg asked about the location of Berkeley Street in Manchester,
England. I remember my mother mentioning Berkeley Street in connection with
other streets in Strangeways.

There are wonderful maps of Manchester at both the Manchester Central
Library and in the Jewish Museum.

Unfortunately, I can't put my hands on mine at the moment, but either of the
mentioned places will provide an answer and probably have a photograph of
the street >from their archived collections. For instance, the Central
Library has a wonderful on-line collection of photographs of 600 Manchester
streets and a major collection of 77,000 photographs of Manchester.

Another resource is the JGS of Manchester. Rica can ask Lorna Kay there.

Also, Mapquest can be used to locate Berkeley Street.

Eliakum ZUNSER & the KADIN(OVSKY) family, Belarus & New York City #general

Rebecca Fenning
 

Hi all,

With the discovery of a ggg-uncle's marriage record, I have recently
made some new progress in the research of my KADIN family.
Originally KAIDINOVSKY or something sounding similar, the family was
from somewhere in the Minsk gubernia -- Mir, according to several
ship records. My gg-gm Minnie KADIN HURDUS (ca 1867-1956) and her
children (including my g-gm Charlotte (1893-1989)) came to the US in
1899 >from Mir to join my gg-gf Sam HURDUS (ca 1855-1925) as well as
two of Minnie's brothers, Samuel (ca 1871-1960), Jacob (ca 1878-1962)
and her sister, Rae Kadin PESKOWITZ (ca 1860-aft 1960) in New York
City. Another brother, Harris (b. ca 1868) and their mother, Selma/
Sarah WEINER Kadin (ca 1832-1924) followed later.

I have now learned, >from the record of Jacob Kadin's 1897 New York
City marriage to Esther ROTNER (daughter of Abraham ROTNER and Mollie
BECKENSTEIN) that their father, and my ggg-gf was "Charles"
Kadinovsky who died sometime before 1893, when the first of several
grandchildren named after him was born. Searching the All Belarus
DB, I find a Chaim Kaidinovsky listed as a cheder teacher in Borisov
in 1879. Of course, I have no way of knowing at this point if this
is the same person, but as Kaidinovsky does not seem to be a hugely
popular name, I assume it *might* be.

Even more interesting than the naming of ggg-gf "Charles," is the
fact that this 1897 wedding was officiated by the legendary badchen
Eliakum ZUNSER, who lists as his "official station" Chewra [??] [??]
Anshei Rodoskowitz, at 171 E. Broadway. Having read through the 1950
Sol Liftzin bio of Zunser at the library yesterday, I didn't find any
mention of Zunser acting as badchen at any weddings after his 1889
arrival in New York, let alone acting as an officiating rabbi. I am
also surprised that my family -- who as far as I know were not
seemingly "elite" in either the intellectual or social senses -- had
a wedding officiated by someone as famous in his own time as Zunser.
I don't know anything about the congregation listed, nor have I yet
been able to learn anything about the bride's family, but I am
curious about what anyone else thinks about this. Were the Rotners
from Radishkovichi & members of this congregation? or could it be
possible that Zunser was acquainted with the children of the cheder
teacher >from Borisov, the town where his 2nd wife Faigel was born? or ?

The papers of Eliakum Zunser are in the collections of YIVO in New
York, where I've already sent off a query, but I am grateful for any
and all thoughts/suggestions any of you folks might have for this
very interesting wedding.

Thanks,

Hi all,

With the discovery of a ggg-uncle's marriage record, I have recently
made some new progress in the research of my KADIN family.
Originally KAIDINOVSKY or something sounding similar, the family was
from somewhere in the Minsk gubernia -- Mir, according to several
ship records. My gg-gm Minnie KADIN HURDUS (ca 1867-1956) and her
children (including my g-gm Charlotte (1893-1989)) came to the US in
1899 >from Mir to join my gg-gf Sam HURDUS (ca 1855-1925) as well as
two of Minnie's brothers, Samuel (ca 1871-1960), Jacob (ca 1878-1962)
and her sister, Rae Kadin PESKOWITZ (ca 1860-aft 1960) in New York
City. Another brother, Harris (b. ca 1868) and their mother, Selma/
Sarah WEINER Kadin (ca 1832-1924) followed later.

I have now learned, >from the record of Jacob Kadin's 1897 New York
City marriage to Esther ROTNER (daughter of Abraham ROTNER and Mollie
BECKENSTEIN) that their father, and my ggg-gf was "Charles"
Kadinovsky who died sometime before 1893, when the first of several
grandchildren named after him was born. Searching the All Belarus
DB, I find a Chaim Kaidinovsky listed as a cheder teacher in Borisov
in 1879. Of course, I have no way of knowing at this point if this
is the same person, but as Kaidinovsky does not seem to be a hugely
popular name, I assume it *might* be.

Even more interesting than the naming of ggg-gf "Charles," is the
fact that this 1897 wedding was officiated by the legendary badchen
Eliakum ZUNSER, who lists as his "official station" Chewra [??] [??]
