Re: Where is Welniaczka, Poland? #general

Mike Glazer <glazer@...>
 

Wieliczka is a town just outside Krakow in Poland. It is famous for its
wonderful underground salt mine (full of fantastically carved statues and
other objects in salt).

Hi,

I am looking for the modern name of "Welniaczka", Poland. It was spelled
as such in a 1929 letter >from the Polish Consulate in Vienna. I can't
find anything about it on any search engine, and can't find it on
StetlSeeker. The closest I can find is "Wieliczka", Poland. Is anyone
familiar with this place?

Thanks again,

Joe Lonstein

Michele,

There is a town in Podolia, Ukraine known as Vikno at 4834 2558. It had
Jewish population in the past (over a hundred souls), and is also listed in
WOWW.

"Vikno" in Ukrainian means literally "a Window" and town's Russian name used
to be known as Okno (a window). To complicate the issue, there is also was a
Polish-Austrian town known as Okno in Horodenka district of Stanislawow
Province (now in Ukraine).
This town had a small Jewish popualtion and is also listed in WOWW
gazetteer.

Obviously, in 1901 Podolia town name was Russian, but the local population,
including Jewish folks, have been using Ukrainian language as well.

I have often confronted Jewish named towns that have their origin in the
Ukrainian or Belarussian languages.

In Ellis Island database there are plenty of entries for town Okno, both
from Austria (Galicia) and in Russia (Podolia). Those are mostly entries for
the Gentiles, but amongst them are several Jewish names.

All Gentiles names appear to be Ukrainians >from the Galicia's Okno, but all
Jewish folks are all >from the Russian (Podolia) Okno.
I have extracted Jewish surnames, all >from Podolia (Russia) Okno:
GERBER
GRUNBERG
JATZKAER
KOVALIVKER
LEWENSOHN
MALAMUT
SCHERMANN
SCHMUKLER
SCHLACHTENNAM
ZAJDMAN

BTW,

JGFF database lists 6 people that are researching town Okno in Ukraine for
the following surnames, perhaps you can recognize some of the beloe listed
surnames or establish a contact with Okno researchers in order to exchange
the information:

KREINDLER
SELINGER
GARTNER
GOLDHAGEN
BELFER
GROSSMAN
BERMAN
SCHVARTZ
EZAK

Hope this help,

Galician Birth Records #galicia

Harvey Glasner <hsglasner@...>
 

Dear fellow Galicianers,

I received the Galician birth record of my maternal grandmother, Ettel
Osterreicher, born 1878 in Przemysl Galicia. The record was printed in German.
That is not surprising as Galicia was part of Austro-Hungary. I was wondering
if anyone might be able to interpret the record for me.

Ettel was born to Marjem Osterreicher. Marjem's parents I assume are Samuel
Klugman as the record indicates he was "der pathen" and the mother was
Rechel Rispler, Der Hebamme.
Am I translating this correctly?

Best regards and happy New Year to all,

HARRIS family in New York City 1920's #general

Bob Wexler <rwexler@...>
 

One of my mother's uncles, Saul SIMON, married a Roselyn or Roselind
HARRIS (Born about 1901) in Manhattan in 1921. She appears in the
1920 US Federal Census living on West 192nd Street (as I read it)
with her mother Fannie (born about 1878) and a sister Nanette (born
about 1906).

The marriage, I believe, was short-lived for unknown reasons. My
great-uncle changed his name to George Simpson, I'm told and
disappeared shortly thereafter.

I would be interested in any info re this Harris family or any descendants.

Advice on how to find out someone's date of birth #general

Daniel Gee <danielgee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I'd appreciate any advice on this one!
How can I find old my g-grandfather's birthdate, when little is known about
him?
Nathan Sack was born in 1876 in Prussia (place unknown), lived in South
Africa (Cape Town)( where he was in business (presumably clothing) and
ended up in London, where he married twice, the first time in 1909.
I have been unable to trace his siblings, ancestors or relatives, other than
descendants, even though I have written to many people in South Africa
and had an article published in the Cape Town Jewish Chronicle years ago.
from the UK I have his marriage applications (>from the Court of the Chief
Rabbi), his state marriage certificates, his death certificate and burial
application. I have seen the cemetery records, he had no headstone and his
medical notes (which are very comprehensive) contain no d.o.b.
Although it is unlikely, he MAY have had his Bar Mitzvah in RSA, but do any
old shul records still exist, and would they have kept this information
anyway?
In the UK, under what circumstance might his date of birth been recorded?
Did they have GPs in those days? If so, would the doctor have recorded this
information and how might I gain access to his normal doctor's notes.
He died in an asylum, and the hospital's notes, which are extremely
comprehensive, do not state this information.
I don't know if this is of any relevance, but his asylum notes state he had
a "tattoo mark" on his arm. I believe it was not the norm for Jewish people
of the day to have body tattoos as many young people do now days - and I
don't believe he was in the services. I guess he could have been in Boer
War, but know little about the event. I wonder if this was just a simple
birthmark that might have been described as a tattoo (ie the meaning has
changed)? Just a thought..
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated..
Please respond privately.
