Rawicz and Leszno Notarial Records #poland

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

The SEZAM database shows that at the Polish State Archive in Leszno there
are extensive holdings of the records of 19th century lawyers/notaries
[called "Notariusz"] for the towns of Rawicz/Rawitsch and Leszno/Lissa.
It appears that the notaries, as they retired and closed their offices, were
required by Prussian law to deposit their files, ledgers, etc in the
government archive. There appear to be scores of running meters of them. A
typical notary whose career spanned about 30 years would leave 3-5 running
meters of records.

Has anyone ever surveyed these fonds? Surely they contain contracts,
wills, probate matters, commercial papers etc.

BORKOWSKY of Bielsko-Biala Poland #poland

Eva Robotnick <erobotnick@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I am trying to find information (or contact) Roman Kurtz BORKOWSKY (or
something similar) of Bielsko-Biala for my cousin Klara (now Carola)
Bauer (last name before marriage).

Roman Kurtz BORKOWSKY (or something similar) was living in Bielsko-Biala,
together with my cousin, around 1892 - 1939 in Poland.
I understand that he was working as a dentist somewhere
near Haifa. He had two sons which must be 40-50 years old.

After WWII, my cousin Klara arrived in Israel in June, 1957 and Roman Kurtz
arrived approximately two months later.

The last known address for Roman was Shikun Gdud Ha Ivri ("British Legion"
in English) in Ramat Hasharon, Israel.

I looked for the shikun but it no longer exists in Ramat Hasharon telephone
book.

My cousin thinks that Roman later left Israel but she doesn't know where he
went.

We would appreciate it if anyone who knows him (or his sons) can let us
know how to contact him.

Regards and thankyou,
Mrs. Eva Robotnick

seeking Catherine KATZ #general

Joan Rimmon
 

Seeking information about a woman named Catherine KATZ, born 1903 in
Chicago, moved to New Jersey and married sometime before 1940. Although her
mother was Catholic and had herself married a Jewish man, Catherine was
ostracized by her mother and brothers Everett and Milton Jr. when she married
a Jewish man.

I have found the brothers, but no one seems to know what happened to
Catherine, her married name or descendants.

I plan to attend the NYC seminar in August, but was wondering if anyone could
tell me what is available to researchers in NJ and are marriage records
available?
Any help would be appreciated.

FW: 2 varients of the same name #general

Leah Aharoni
 

In my research I came across a woman listed in family records as Yoora.
When searching Lithuanian revision lists, I found a family with similar
names but there the mother is listed as Yokheved. I have never heard of
a name such as Yoora. What are the chances that this is one and the same
person?

The use of Google in Jewish genealogy #general

Allow me to take exception to the Moderator Note attached to Allan Dolgow's
message to this Group on April 22, 2006, namely:

"Google does not produce many results of use to Jewish genealogists."

On the contrary, there isn't a day that I don't research that web site.
Results have been fantastic.

multiple responses directing the questioner to a particular website. I have also
used Google, daily, for many years and did not mean to generalize.

1926-1930 Polish business directory search improvement #poland #warsaw

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

When searching the 1926/1927, 1928, 1929, or 1930 Poland and Danzig Business
Directories at www.kalter.org/search, search results are now organized
according to geographic region (e.g., Wojewodztwa Tarnopolskie, Wilenskie,
Wolynskie, etc.). This should make it easier to identify relevant results
when many matches to the search term are returned.

Best regards,

A marriage document for two people with childen born twenty years before #warsaw #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Has this happend to anyone else? Two days ago, I received a marriage
registration >from 1874 in Warsaw. It states that the groom is 60, as is the
bride and that they have children born in 1853 and 1857. I am assuming that
is the formal state registration of their marriage (which actually took
place somewhere before 1837, because I have another document for the birth
of a daughter in 1838).

Do try variations Treper-Trepman-Treperman #warsaw #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Luckily my mother-in-law had marked on a document or two, Treper-Trepman.
This enabled us to collect documents indexed on JRI-Poland for the two names
and see that the names were used inter-changeably (is there such a word) in
the 19th century. Last month I took a chance and ordered a document for a
Treperman. I thought, if they used both Treper and Trepman, maybe one used
Treperman. The document arrived and after a sketchy translation, I found
that Gersa Treperman was born about 1814 in Warsaw and his mother's name was
Sprincza daughter of Layzer. This matched the year of birth (it can't be a
coincidence) of Hersz Trepman (Also between Russian and Polish Gersa can be
Hersz) born in Warsaw in 1814, whose father is Kielman, and I know from
another document Kielman's wife is Szprinca. I now have 3 definite children
for my husband's ggggrandfather, which means 3 different branches.

JGS - Hamilton (Ontario, Canada) & Area - Wed, April 26 Meeting #warsaw #poland

Ina Levitt-Yanover
 

Offered by
Jewish Genealogical Society- Hamilton & Area
Wednesday, April 26, 2006
7:30 PM to 10:00 PM
Location: Temple Anshe Sholom
215 Cline Avenue North, Hamilton, ON

Every week, people around the world suddenly discover their Jewish
roots.
Peter Jassem's lecture will reveal the reasons for the involuntary loss
of
Jewish identity after the war and provide examples of reconnecting to
Jewish
roots, and the psychological and practical consequences thereof.
Examples,
including Peter's own experiences, will illustrate the methods used to
trace
one's Jewish roots and how their discovery evolved. Peter's presentation
will also encompass ways of searching for lost relatives, whether
Holocaust
survivors or their descendants living under an assumed or imposed false
identity.

Raised as a Christian, Peter Jassem suspected that his roots were
Jewish for
some time and was able to confirm this in 1995. During the following 18
months he located 1500 names of Jewish ancestors or relatives. He
became an
active board member of the JGS of Canada (Toronto) and is now on the
board
of JRI-Poland, Gesher Galicia and the Canadian Foundation for Polish
Studies. Since 2002 he has served as president of the Polish-Jewish
Heritage
Foundation of Canada. He has written articles for genealogical
newsletters,
lectured on genealogy and participated in various projects. He was the
program chair of the 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, Toronto, 2002.

Please join us for this presentation Discovering Jewish Roots of People
raised as Non-Jews. Admission for non - members is $5 which will be
applied
when joining in the same membership year.
