UK Jewish Records - List of Sources #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

I have just found this source of Jewish records in the Moving Here Project which
is under the auspices of the UK National Archive.

http://tinyurl.com/78rrt

It contains the various headings:

Jewish communities
Birth records
Marriage records
Beth Din or (ecclesiastical) Court of the Chief Rabbi
Death, Burial and Cemetery Records
Tracing a Grave

I think that the site was created by our colleague, Saul Issroff. I think that it
is very comprehensive and it is a very good entrypoint who are not familiar with
the UK Jewish community, and particularly people who have Jewish ancestry and who
are now distant >from Jewish matters.

1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directory #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The 1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directory, "Ksiega Adresowa Polski (wraz
z w. m. Gdanskiem) dla handlu, rzemiosl i rolnictwa," is now freely available
online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska's site
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=11649. This 2697-page directory is
primarily organized by place, then by business type, then by surname or business
name. To facilitate searching, I have applied optical character recognition (OCR)
software to the Digital Library images and incorporated the result into my Search
Engine for Online Historical Directories at http://www.kalter.org/search.php, as I
recently did for the 1926/1927 edition of this directory. When searching, please
keep in mind that OCR is not 100% accurate, so you still might want to manually
search the directory, especially if you are only interested in a few known small
towns. To improve your chances of success, I encourage you to make use of all
three available methods of searching. An explanation of how to access the scanned
directory images at the Digital Library site can be found in the FAQ on the Search
Engine site.

If you find this tool to be helpful, please let me know.

Please realize that an initially high response may slow the Search Engine.

Rav Yechiel Michal TUCATZENSKY #general

Aidel Heller <aidelh@...>
 

BS"D

I am trying to trace my family's lineage to Rav Yechiel Michal (ben Aharon)
TUCATZENSKY, zt"l. He was Rosh Yeshiva of Etz Chayim in Jerusalem.

My grandfather was Pesach Leibel (Yehuda) Tucatzensky, who was born in Lodz and
came to the US as a teenager to avoid the Russian front. His father was Rav
Menachem Mendel ben Chatzkil (Yechezkil?) Tucatzensky. He was a dayan (Jewish
judge) in Lodz. His wife's name was Esther, nee Vishnik. I believe that R.
Chatzkil's wife was Rivka, and there is the possibility that his father's name was
Reuven Tucatzensky.

Does anyone have information on any of this Tucatzensky family tree?

Thank you very much,

Aidel Heller

Help with POT address in Chicago #general

Ruth <drwho70@...>
 

Would someone in or near 60659 zip code area be willing to check out a street
address with that zip code to see if the family that is currently living there is
the same as the one submitting the POT back in 1995? If it is the same family,
that means they are almost certainly the decendents of my grandfather's brother.

Please email me at: drwho70@maine.rr.com for the complete address and name.

Thank you for your help.
