Seeking: KOMAROVSKY, Khodorkov #general

mknoiret@...
 

n 1922 My father Ysrul KOMAROVSKY (who became Joe KRAMER in USA at age 12) son of
Josef KOMAROVSKY left with his father the shtetl Khodorkov (Zhitomir oblast) west
of Kiev.
I would love to hear >from anyone knowing about Khodorkov or who may be or know of
KOMAROVSKY family.
I, like many other children of East European Immigrant Jews, treasure the little
memories told me by my father of his home town. I would like to make these
memories fit into a greater reality by knowing the fulness of existence, good and
bad, in this exact town Khodorkov. (now Khodorkiv in Ukranian).
I have read beautiful, sad, happy and tragic memoirs of other places and am
gathering a feeling for the life of those places, yet I need to hear this name
"Khodorkov" and know that a street spoken of , a lawn, a schul, a market, a
festival, a person ,is of this place, so I can breath its air and picture my
father in his home. In a little way, my life has an interrupted beginning. There
is a black mark covering the map of my family at a place which should be clear and
full of life. Horrible things have happened there but at one time,in one place, it
was something I can hear about with some joy. Help me to experience this joy. Im
unsure whether I can journey to Khodorkov myself.

Sincerely

Michael G. Kramer who's gravestone will say Mendel Gershon Komarovsky

Searching Meyer BABIATZKI New York #general

Rose and Robert Raymen <rr.raymen@...>
 

Dear Genners

I am trying to locate descendants of Meyer BABIATZKI, who lived in Brooklyn,
New York in 1939. Meyer emigrated to the USA >from Kalisz, Poland in the 1930's and
was probably born between 1884 and 1890. My maternal grandmother, Bella Miriam
BABIATZKA was Meyer's sister. The only address I have is 603 Baoil Terrace,
Brooklyn, although the name of the street may be incorrect.

Any information would be appreciated.

Please respond privately.

Berlin Death certificates prior to WWII? #general

msalzbank
 

Dear Geners

I am looking for a death certificate for Alexander FRIMMERMAN, a chazan who lived
and died in Berlin prior to the onset of WWII.

I am most interested in confirming his father's first name. So either a deatch
certificate (similar to those in NYC) or a picture of his gravesite would do the
trick. I imagine that the grave was desecrated during the war and is no longer
intact.

any suggestions?

The Subject of Thank-Yous (again) #general

Debbie Skolnik
 

We are all used to the wonderful information-sharing we can do via email, but we
need to remember that emails do go astray sometimes.

Today I received a forwarded copy of an email that was recently sent to me as a
response to a post I made to Jewishgen, along with what I can only characterize as
an angry note >from the responder that I should have had the courtesy to say thank
you for the help (which was fairly detailed).

At first I thought perhaps I had not sent a thank you, but a check through my
inbox and saved Jewishgen messages showed no sign of his original response to me.
I cannot acknowledge an email if I didn't receive it!

I wrote back to this person letting him know that I had not received his original
email. I thanked him for taking the time to reply in such detail, but also
suggested that rather than sending an accusatory note such as the one I'd just
received next time he got no response to a helpful message, that he check first
with the recipient to make sure the message had been received in the first place.

Yes, I know there are probably people who don't take the time and trouble to say
thank you...and I also know that occasionally even the best-intentioned of us
somehow fail to acknowledge every offer of help we receive. I cannot say for sure
that my own thank-you response rate is 100%, although I try to answer each person
immediately after reading the email so as not to let it slip through the cracks.

If you have read this far, I have taken enough of your time, so let me close by
thanking each and every one of you who participate in the information-sharing and
creating that goes on here at Jewishgen. Your help is invaluable.

Jewishness Established, Wedding going ahead #general

Oliver Baker <oliver@...>
 

Thanks very, very much to all you folks who responded to my plea for advice on
establishing my fiancee's Jewishness >from burial records for the council of
orthodox rabbis. Besides the helpful info, we got some electronic copies of some
great old e-mail clippings pertaining to the ancestors in question, which actually
told my fiancee's family some things they didn't know--in particular, that they
had history in Colorado. The help either gave us or put us hot on the trail of all
the documentation we needed, but in the end our backchannel dialogue with the
orthodox rabbi who's wedding us led him to realize he had been confused initially
about how many generations we were counting back (only one, not three) and so he
told the rabbinical heavies in New York that they could drop the case. Now all my
bride and I have to worry about is the caterers and where we'll send our future
kids to school.
Thanks again,

Oliver Baker


Found: Help with SAIDE Arrival #general

Lisa Dashman <ldashman@...>
 

Yesterday, I asked for help with locating the arrival of a SAIDE family. Today,
thanks to the generous and experienced help of several Genners, I was able to
locate:
1. Basic information about Louis SAIDE's naturalization.
2. The family's entry in the 1900 Census (under the name "Sadler", of all things,
but with correct first names, ages, street address and occupations).

With the combined information >from these sources, I may now be able to find data
about their arrival in New York.

It happens to be my birthday today, and I would like to say thank you to Diane,
Carol and Allan in particular for their speedy and thoughtful advice that has
brought me an excellent birthday present!

Best wishes,
Lisa
