I apologize for my error. And of all families, about the Salant

Jacob Susan Jurisz <suejurisz@...>
 

Have just posted two pages of a marriage document on the Viewmate website,

Polish to English. It is the marriage record of Szoel GRACZ and Basia JURYS,
from Drobin (in the Plock area).
I am trying to establish the connection of Basia Jurys to my husband's
family, who came >from the same small village.

In reviewing the microfilm records of my local LDS FHC, I noticed sets of
microfilms entitled "(name of place) Vital Statistics."

What records/information can one expect to find on these types of microfilm?

Re: Unique Surnames #general

My unique name is: GESMAI/GESMAY/GESCHMAY/GESCHAI
The legend has it that we are descendent of a Spanish Jew who married an
ABRABANEL young lady on the fly >from the Spanish inquisition. This Family
arrived to Central Europe: there are currently a few family trees 2 of which
from the same city: Ronsperg now called Pobovice in CZ.
These trees are not connected yet as far as I know and they arrive back till
the beginning of the 18 century in the same city.
The other part is >from north Hungary the town called Pilisvorosvar where
they appeared in the beginning of the 19 century.
As far as we all know we are all related the question is only how.

JEF BARNETT <JBarnett@...>
 

Last week I asked for help in translating a few pages >from my ggg-f's 1851
marriage record, which I think is Polish, along with 2 birth records of the bride
and groom which were recorded at the same time. I have now been able to scan
the documents to Viewmate

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate
VM 7295,7296,7297,7298

I have an extract of the marriage record already but I am trying to get the
correct names in English, confirm the extract, get any other details and
especially get the details in the corresponding birth record for the bride
and groom that appears to have been entered at the time of the wedding.

Groom is Juszk Bandrymer aged 18 father is Aryja z Leyzor (d) Mother Feyga z
Juszk
Birthplace is Gniazdowo, no current residence
Bride is Ruchla Liba Wychowanek aged 16, father is Chajm z Wolf, Mother is

Are there any records of people escaping from Poland to Russia? #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Some people escaped to Russia, and some escaped to Russia as prisoners of war.
If you check the Karta website, which has been mentioned, you can search
among the lists that have been published.
http://www.indeks.karta.org.pl/
My in-laws escaped the Warsaw Ghetto only to be captured in Bialistok and
sent to Siberia. They were released at the time of the formation of Anders' Army.
Good luck
