Dear Richard:

On our website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm, click on
Towns and you will find a table that summarizes what we know is
available for towns in the BialyGen area. Apparently there is no data
available for Milejczyce.

In Tomasz Wisniewski's book, "Jewish Bialystok and surroundings in
Eastern Poland," he describes Jewish Milejczyce and provides a list of
Jewish heads of households taken by the Nazis to the death camps.

Anyone know how and/or where records could be researched for the
shtetl of milejczyce circa 19th century?

Re: Surnames #austria-czech

==I'm sure we'd all like to believe that humiliating names are no longer
imposed in Europe. Don't dismiss that thought so quickly. Tuesday's New York
Times reported on Werner Kufeldt, a 64-year-old widower and retired bricklayer
from the German city of Essen.
==His name means Cow field. What an abusive name to impose on a Jew!

==Sorry, wait a minute. This Kufeldt, who made a trip across the border to
the Netherlands to arrange a low-price cremation for when his life comes to
its end, is not a Jew. Makes me wonder who forced that humiliating
anti-teutonic name on this Gentile family.

==Gives me a chance to prove my creativity with a little legend. Perhaps his
father had only enough money for a bribe to avoid being named Kuhschwantz
(Cow's tail). Or how about thinking of Kufeldt as the Hebrew acronym Kolo u-piv
emet lo dibru tamid ("his voice and his mouth did not always speak the
truth")?

==More seriously, more scientific, and more productive: look for one week at
the paid ads for obituaries listed in the daily New York Times. It's fairly
easy to divide them into Jewish and Gentile by the given information about
each one's funeral parlor. (Don't go by the given names of grandchildren
which tend to be biblical more often among Gentiles than among Jews)

==Now, using two different colored pens, check off the "humiliating"
surnames in each group.

==Surprise? Still believe that evil Gentiles commonly imposed nasty surnames
on hapless Jews?

Re: Ellis Island Database/Elusive Hometown of the WEINSTEIN Family #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

I am not Michael, but I can tell you with certainty that those notations
were *not* added in the process of making the materials ready for the
database - that would have required an unacceptable amount of research and
cross-referencing. Besides, they were working >from microfilm copies which
are beyond changing in that way.

And they were not added by the National Archives, which generally prefers to
maintain their holdings in the condition in which they were received.
Besides, the Archives only holds microfilm copies. I believe the surviving
paper originals were donated years ago to the Balch Institute in
Philadelphia and are rarely made available for viewing.

These are notations added by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (or
its predecessors) *before* the lists were filmed and given to the National
Archive, in the days when part of the naturalization process was to seek
manual confirmation of legal entry to the US. An inquiry of one sort or
another would reach the keepers of these lists, who would look up, note the
date of entry, etc, and record with this code the date of their response to
the court proposing to perform the naturalization.

Moschko had 1-85808, so it appears his papers were filed in Boston. Chaja had
2-809856 12-16-40, so it appears her were filed in the Southern District Court in
New York around 1940."


Michael, I'd never heard of this before. Will you explain more about this?
For instance, when did these numbers get written into the passenger ship
transcript? Because I assume that the application for naturalization would have
happened some time after the passenger ship records were written up. Was this
something written onto the record in the process of the EIDB people making these
documents ready for the database, or something the National Archives did in the
past for some reason? Thanks.

One victim was working at a storage of what may be " the P.T.K" . Does

Alternatively, does anyone know of a word [probably in Russian or Yiddish]
