Great Mitzvah - Poland and Danzig Business Directory #poland

David Ferleger
 

What a wonderful thing - for you to have figured out how to do the
OCR with the phone /business directory.

For people who couldn't begin to know which type business to look
under, or town, it would be impossible to use the directory otherwise

Thanks

David Ferleger

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Once you have found family listings in the 1926-27
business directory, you can then make a more focused search for them
in the 1929 Polish Business Directory, whose images are linked from
the JRI-Poland home page at www.jri-poland.org

1926-7 Polish Business Directory-Versus the 1929 Polish B.D. #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

I believe that Logan Kleinwachs should be
congratulated for the tremendous effort by making this
directory available to us.

Though smaller than the 1929 Polish Business Directory
it enables an interesting comparison of the businesses
in every location in amatter of 3 years.

I myself research the KOENIGSBUCH family >from Brzesko
(image 209 in the Directory) and managed to locate
Koenigsbuchs in the 1926 version who were not there
anymore in 1929 and vice versa.Now I have the
questions which will lead me hopefully to some
answers.

I see that this information is contained in the entry for Ireland on the
century-old Jewish Encyclopedia
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=169&letter=I

This is the only source of this particular piece of information on the
Internet.

The date given is July 28 1232 but is curious that this has not been
referred to elsewhere. Maybe this was a doubtful honour, along the lines of
if there are or should be any Jews in Ireland then you have custody of them.

No doubt if such a document exists it would be in the UK National Archive or
the Irish Archive.

It would seem that he was the Sheriff of Yorkshire. Apparently he was also
keeper of King John's Castle in Dungarvan.

WOLINSKY DNA #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

A cousin in the male WOLINSKY line has recently put his DNA on the Houston,
TX site (I'm not supposed to advertise this site?). He got some 25-marker
exact match hits, but none >from WOLINSKYs (except for one, but that was
quite unusual, as his family took on the name in America & no one knows
why; plus, they came >from a very different part of the Pale.)

If any WOLINSKY'S out there are interested in finding a possible match, I
suggest you do the swab.

ViewMate: Reading Yad Vashem's POT in Russian? #general

Eliana Aizim
 

Dear Genners,
Roza VELTMAN submitted a Page of Testimony (POT) for her
mother Khana VELTMAN/ VALTMAN in Yad Vashem. Roza's
country is given as Ukraine, the POT is in Russian. I would like to
send her a letter in English, but I need some help regarding her
address in the POT, so that I can write it on the envelope. I have
two questions:
1. what is Roza's address in the POT?
2. should I write it in Cyrillic or in Latin letters?
I have posted the POT on ViewMate: VM 6542. Direct address:
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6542

* re: Proof of Inheritance #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear Steve,

Two tips:

1. If you know where your wife's relatives married, then you can try to request
vital records for their children >from that place's notary. If the answer is
negative, namely that they found no children, that might constitute a proof. Of
course probate records may reveal more.

2. Try to send your message to a new group formed recently (h-justice - Holocaust
Era Restitutions Forum) < http://groups.yahoo.com/group/h-justice >. Maybe their
members can offer other tips.

Good luck
Tom

Dear Cousins,

My wife has received notice >from the German government that she in line for
some sort of money because her grandfather lived in Germany (before the
war). They asked for proof of inheritance, something indicating that she is
a sole survivor in her grandfather's line. Her uncle and his wife died in
Florida, childless. She has no siblings. Her father is dead.

On what sort of document would I find that her uncle and aunt had no children?

Visit to Polish State Archives, Warsaw #warsaw #poland

Elliott Simonberg
 

I may visit the Polish State Archives in Warsaw this fall. Has anybody
recently visited there and conducted personal research? Through
JRI-Poland, I have found out the names of a number of relatives with
accompanying index information. LDS films exist for some of the records.
Where there are no index records, is the best approach simply to visit the
archives? How helpful are the people there, given language barriers,
especially where exact years are not known and some individuals' records
are probably in years that have not been indexed so far. I realize one can
order records >from PSA as well. How easy and efficient has that process
gone for people?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

Does anyone have an idea where and how I might search
for info on my Great Aunt and Uncle who were both
pharmacists living in Warsaw in the 1930's? I only
know my great aunt's maiden name. I thought to search
maybe business directories etc >from that era trying to
match two spouses who were pharmacists and wife's
given name. I know that neither of them survived the
war.
Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.
