Dear Genners,
Searching for families Belogalov, Zunder, Kutzko and
Mackler who resided in Zvenigorodka, Kiev Gubernia,
Ukraine.I believe that two or three Kutzko brothers
emmigrated to Moisesville, Argentina at the beginning
of the twentieth century. Berel and David Kutzko and
their families emmigrated to New York City in 1912-13.
Mackler, a hat maker emmigrated to Birobidjan with his
wife Toba Leah and their two sons during the early
thirties.

Birds of a Feather - Kherson Guberniya and Odessa #ukraine

Sarah LM Christiansen <SarahLMC@...>
 

I was part of the original Odessa group and Anita did some work for me.
While she did find some KHAIT(CHAIT) and PERCHIK records they are not my
immediate family. I did not try ZAGS because, my paternal great
grandparents immigrated to the US in the 1880s. They went to NY City
and then to Albany, where Fishel MEYER (born PERCHIK) was a tailor. All
but one of my paternal grandfather and his siblings were born in Albany
NY. I would definitely be interested in a birds of a feather group for
Kherson Guberniya.. My two great-great grandfathers were Joseph PERCHIK
and Solomon KHAIT >from the Odessa area, but as far as I can tell not
from Odessa proper. My father's maternal grandmother was Fayge
BIRGARDOVSKY MAGRUTSKY EDELBERG. (She was a widow when she married
Feivel EDELBERG). She may have been >from the city of Kherson or Odessa.
BIRGARDOVSKY was her maiden name, at least that is the way that Solomon
(MAGRUTSKY) DAVIS (he came to the US I believe with the name DAVIS) had
put it on his marriage license application no 4038 in NYC (Married NYC
on Feb 11 1912, when he married Grandpa's sister. The EDELBERG branch
came >from Kolonie L'vovo, an agricultural colony in Kherson Guberniya
(and not to be confused with the city of L'viv.) We already have a
shtetl links page for this colony.

Chaim SIROTA #ukraine

Gilda and Bob Kurtzman <gildak@...>
 

I am interested in finding the descendents of Chaim Sirota who was married
to Unknown Kertzman. The Kertzmans lived in Kulchiny. Chaim Sirota would
have been born about 1775 as he had a son, Baruch who was born in 1800 and
died in 1825.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Philadelphia Cemeteries #general

Leonie Flack <mail@...>
 

I am trying to find out more information about a brother of my husband's
grandfather, Saul FLACH, who went >from Kalisz to New York around 1889 and was
naturalised about 1896.

We know that he died some time between 1908 and 1913 in Philadelphia and wondered
which Jewish cemeteries would be the most likely to find his burial?

In the 1900 census the family, Saul and his wife Mildred (Millie) and their twin
boys were living in Wharton Street, Philadelphia. By 1908 the family consisted of
Saul and Mildred (Millie) had 4 children but I have not been able to find any of
the family in the 1910 census.

Depending on the information found in the census and also immigration index etc
Saul was either listed as Salomon/Solomon or Sol.

Any help with regard to possible Philadelphia Jewish cemeteries in use during 1908
to 1913 would be most appreciated.

Member of Polish Diet between the World Wars #general

Israel P
 

We are trying to identify a family member who served in the Polish Diet between
the world wars. His name was WAJNRYB, but we don't have a given name.

Is such information available someplace? (What happened to him is extra credit.)

Rabbinical/Tribe Question (Adler, Halpern, Alber) #general

Terri <terrib@...>
 

I have 3 questions:

1. Should I assume that if the Beider Poland Book lists a last name as
"Rabbinic", (examples of some names: Adler, Halpern, Alber), that the members of
these family were >from the Kohanim tribe?

2. In the 18th and 19th centuries, were there Rabbi who were Levy's and
Israelites? Or just Kohanim?

3. Should I, also, assume that there were Rabbi in the Adler, Halpern, and Alber
families that I am researching (18th and 19th century) or not necessarily?



Thank you,
Tom Erribe

Boston Jewish Advocate #general

beatrice swart <bswart33321@...>
 

I will be in the Boston area in early May and would like to do the research for
the following:

Can some one tell me where I can get to research the Boston Jewish Advocate
wedding announcements.

I am researching William SWART, and I see that there is a date of 6/18/1915 as the
wedding announcement.

Another question, is that the date of the wedding or the date that it was listed
in the Advocate? Above the date it says Issue Date.

Thanks to everyone for any information that you can give me.

Re: Potzanka, Hungary #hungary

First, he says on it that he is >from Potzanka, Bereg Megye, Hungary. I can't
locate that town using Shtetlseeker, and I've never heard of it. Most of my
family is >from Munkacs and thereabout (which is also in Bereg Megye), so I
imagine Potzanka is near to there. Is anyone familiar with this town?

Micah,

If you are certain that Potzanka has been located in Bereg county, may I suggest
to locate village whereabouts by using Bereg's 1910 map.

from the index of Hungarian counties in 1910, select Bereg county:
http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/

When you have managed to locate Potzanka, follow now with the fairly modern map
(Soviet era) of Ukraine's Zakarpatskaya oblast' (Transcarpathian Ukraine) at:

http://www.infoukes.com/ua-maps/oblasts/oblast01/

to identify current Ukrainian name of Potzanka.

Good luck in your search.
