Searching: DZWONKOWSKI - Warsaw, Poland #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I am searching for anyone related to the DZWONKOWSKI family of Warsaw,
Poland and the surrounding areas.

My DZWONKOWSKI great great great grandparents (1st names unknown) lived in
Poland (probably Warsaw or the surrounding towns) and had 5 children that I
am aware of (all born in the mid 1800s):

1- Reuven DZWONKOWSKI - He had a son named Yudel and two daughters Menicha
and Chana. Yudel probably came to the States in the early to mid 1900s and
was either a weight lifter, wrestler or boxer. He may also have changed his
surname in the United States but I don't know for sure.

2- Golda DZWONKOWSKI - She married Joshua MIKANOVSKY and had Marsha, Elka,
and a son. I know nothing else about this family. They may have all been
killed in Warsaw during the Holocaust.

3- Isaac ADLER - He adopted the ADLER surname >from his 3rd wife. He lived
in England with his family.

4- Sarah DZWONKOWSKI - She married Reuven Chaim GOLDSTEIN and had Chana,
Esther and Yakov. Either Esther or Chana married a Jew who was part owner
of a non Jewish newspaper in Warsaw. I know nothing else about the sisters.
Yakov moved to Vilna an then to England where he was a Cantor.

5- Chaia Esther DZWONKOWSKI (1865-1911) - She married Yitzchok CYWINER.
They were my great grandparents.

If anyone knows anything about these families I would really love to hear
from you.
Thank you very much.

Lots of entertainers do this - you see one name in Lights on Broadway, but
they are something else in 'real life'. Is this a name change? It used
to happen this simply in the US: someone would decide to be 'John Doe' and
that was their real name.

When Social Security started, that changed. You could have friends call
you John, but for anything legal, you had to get a court order or marriage
or divorce papers - something legal - before you could change your Social
Security Account, your driver's license, or your credit cards to your new

name wrong, even though I spelled my name in court. Imagine, the court
reporter couldn't get the spelling of Bruckheimer right, so I had to get
it fixed!
My father calls himself Paul Simon Landau (I have made up these names, but
otherwise this is true) and he has called himself that >from the year dot.

Not so long ago, he looked on his birth certificate and found that, in fact,
he was names had been registered as Simon Paul, the other way around.

His parents had forgotten this, he never knew this, and it can't have
created any complications in his life, because, as I say, he just found
about it by accident.

I agree that a reversal of names is not having totally different names.

It has created no complications for him.

It is just conceivable that if he had been born in this digital age it would.

Re: Name Changes #hungary

Sally's info is not correct, at least not in California. I changed my
surname in 1976 without a court order by simply obtaining a new SS
card, new driver's license, and notifying all of my credit card
companies. The only difficulty arose when I needed a new passport but
even then all I had to do was obtain statements >from two people who
knew me both before and after I changed my name.

Just to make things difficult for any of my descendants who might be
into genealogy, I assumed my mother's maiden name.

Re: NYC Accommodation Advise Needed for 2006 IAJGS conference #general

Linda Altman <familysearch@...>
 

You can try locations in Yonkers, White Plains, Elmsford and as far north as
Brewster (although Brewster is at least an hour by train to NYC providing
there are no delays). I would recommend that you try anywhere in lower
Westchester County. There are plenty of hotels in White Plains, Tarrytown
and Elmsford which are going to be less expensive than those in NYC. Once in
NYC the fastest way to travel is either on foot or by subway.

Subject: NYC Accommodation Advise Needed for 2006 IAJGS conference

I was wondering if any New Yorkers could give some advise on accommodations
for next years IAJGS conference. Although the conference hotel rate is
terrific compared to rack rates and every discount Website I have checked,
it is still quite pricey [http://www.jgsny2006.org/hotel.cfm] and I have a
feeling that taxes, parking, and food will bring conference costs to very
high levels for many non-commuting attendees. Are there any other areas in
the NYC area with clean, safe, more reasonably priced accomodations with
parking that could be reached by convenient public transportation. I guess
this might be a pretty tough question to answer in a positive manner but I
thought I would at least ask the question now since registration opens next
month. I suspect even these hotels rates may not be available very long and
we will be back well over $300/day quite easily. Any specific names and
places would be especially welcome.

Kiev Look-up Needed #general

Dear Group,

I have found a possible link to the missing wing of my grandmother's family
on a Yad Vashem testimony posted >from 1997. I have the submitter's name and
address and was wondering if someone in Kiev (or someone able to read any
online directories in Russian for the Kiev area) could check a directory to see
if the address was still the same.

Many thanks,

Re: NYC accomodations #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

The best deal by far in NYC accomodations, aside >from finding a Manhattan
relative or genner willing to put you up for free, might be a hostel run by
nuns, originally for German immigrants. I stayed there a
couple times, many years ago, for $45 a night - instead of $200 or so
elsewhere. It has no decor, unless you count the crucifix over the bed
(which you can ignore, in my opinion); it is clean as a whistle; it is at
on 23rd St near 8th Ave..

If you bring your spouse and don't use the same surname, bring your marriage
license.

If you want the name, write me as I cannot mention it in public.

Galicia researchers on the Gulf Coast #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

Dear All,

It is now two weeks since Hurricane Katrina devastated a wide area of the
Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Several of our members
and subscribers and/or their families live in New Orleans and other towns
affected by the hurricane and/or the flooding that followed. We hope that
they were able to evacuate safely and relocate in other areas until they can
return home.

Eileen Polakoff reported the following on September 3 and has given me
permission to post information about Gesher Galicia members Vicki and Jacob
Karno and about Susan King.

"I've just heard >from Vicki [and Jacob Karno] and they are fine. They had a
front row seat to Hurricane Katrina but managed to get out of New Orleans to
avoid the devastation that followed. They have relocated to Destin,
[Florida] for at least 2 or 3 months where they are renting an apartment.
Their friends are pleased to hear they are fine and as Vicki says "we'll
survive" as we all know is the hope for everyone on the Gulf Coast.

Some of you may not know that JewishGen's president and founder Susan King
called New Orleans home for a very long time. I don't know if any family are
still living there but they certainly must be. I do know that her heart is
hurting as she sees the devastation everywhere in her hometown."

If any Gesher Galicia members suffered losses of their issues of The
Galitzianer and GG Family Finder during Hurricane Katrina (or other
disaster), let me know -- whenever you are ready to dig in again to your
research.

If you have been affected by the events, let me know privately. I hope that
all are safe, healthy, and in good spirits.

Warm regards,

Shelley
