Dear Jonathan,

In looking at a modern A-Z for London, I see that there are a total
of ten Cornwall Roads; four of them have London postal district
appellations: N4, N15, N18, SE1, while six are in the London suburbs:
Croydon, Esher, Harrow, Pinner, Sutton and Twickenham. If Jonathan is
fairly sure that the business was in London, then we can probably
disregard the suburb locations

I then looked at my pre-war (WW2) A-Z, I see that there are five
Cornwall Roads with postal district appellations: E2, N4, N15, SE1,
and W11.

E2 - a very short street in Bethnal Green/Mile End area. It ran
westwards off Braintree Street (still there today). It was renamed
Cornwall AVENUE in 1938.

N4 - this too is a short "one block long" street running east-west
between Lancaster Road and Oakfield Road in Finsbury Park. It is just
to the west of the park. It is still there today.

N15 - one mile NE of the N4 location. It runs north-south >from St.
Ann's Road to Green Road in the North Harringay area. It is still
there today

N18 - getting closer to the "'burbs." A "very" short street running
north-south >from Angel Road (A 406) to Fairfield Road. It is so small
that most maps don't name it, but it is the second one >from the right
going east >from Fore Street as one walks down Fairfield. Still there
today.

SE1 - this runs roughly north-south >from Upper Ground to The Cut in
Lambeth. This too is still there today.

So, Jonathan, which one? By the way, there is a Grodzinski's bakery
at the bottom of my road, Edgwarebury Lane, Edgware where my mother
gets her challah every week.

I have just found my grandfather Abie GRODZINSKI statement of
affairs drawn up after his death in 1918. Abie was aged 32 at the
time and was running the family bakery business in Fieldgate Street
in London's East End.

In the statement there is reference to rates and rent ....... also
to "107 Cornwall Road" (without any indication of where this was in
London). My late uncle told me that the family had had a shop in
West London at approximately that time.

I have looked at current Cornwall Roads, but before I start
investigating them, I would like to know whether there were others
in London in 1918. I have found an index of changed street names
but it is alphabetical according to current and not old names.

So can anyone help me find my grandfather's Cornwall Road? I think
that No. 107 would have been a baker's shop and may have had some
Jewish population nearby.

Karen Rippens asked:

Something triggered a childhood memory of the word pipik. I vaguely
remember jokes about Moishe Pipik, as in 'who do you think you are,
Moishe Pipik?'

I can't find the word in any Yiddish resource I have. Can anyone
tell me what 'pipik' means? Or where it came from, or what the joke
about it is?''
Dear Karen,

Pipik ( actually spelled Peh-vav-peh-ayin-qof and pronounced Pupik in
some Yiddish dialects) means"belly button" (i.e., navel).

For me too it is a childhood memory. We didn't speak Yiddish in our
Anglo-Jewish family, but my parents used quite a few vocabulary words
-- mostly either amusing or just plain vulgar ones!

My gf Samuel ASHKANOZY was b1874.

I have not been able to find him on any passenger
list for 1888 at the Castle Garden web site.
Does anyone know if they are adding to this web site?

The 1920 NY census states Austria as his birthplace.
He is buried at First Bolechower S. Ben. Assn.,
Maspeth, New York. His first cousin is also buried
in the same area.

Would I look for his birth records listed under
Austria, Galician or Poland?

Re: Jewish death notices in the early 20th century #general

ac <anitac47@...>
 

There appears to be a mis-understanding about the purpose of
published death notices. In the U.S., this is a legal requirement
as claims on property, inheritance, and debt will need to be resolved.

Local law determines in which newspapers the names of the deceased
must appear.

This response has caught my attention because I was not aware of this
requirement. Do legal entanglements have to exist prior to the death or is
this just a matter of course. I ask because I never publishished nor seen
published announcements of my parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc.
deaths. Am I misunderstanding this?

Thanks.

I am puzzled by this statement as I have *never* heard of or been informed
that publication of a death was "a legal requirement" in the United States. Is
this a requirement in Massachusetts or throughout the US? I would be most
appreciative if Pat Weinthat could clarify this.

My personal experience has been that paid death notices did not become
common-place and published in daily and weekly newspapers until the early to
mid-1930s. My grandfather died in 1929 and an uncle died in 1930, and there w
as no paid death notice or obituary in either the daily newspapers or the Jewish
weeklys. Ditto for my greatgrandmother who died in 1913.
