Genners,

On behalf of a friend whose ancestors came >from Slonim, Belarus (formerly
Poland) I'd like to know if Slonim societies exist anywhere. I've already
checked the JGFF and found 298 researchers interested in Slonim, but I was
wondering if any formal groups exist. Thanks.

area
From: Petegolob@...

X-Message-Number: 1

I am searching for my grandfather's family. He was
Moschkvo GOLUB born
1883, who arrived in UK to settle in 1910 and
became Morris GOLOB. I have just
seen his naturalisation papers (dated 1928) in
which he says he was brought up
in Boguslav. He married in 1907 to Faiga Malka
(Fanny) KRAMORAW at
Procharofka, Poltava. I have not been able to
locate Procharofka. His parents were
Srul and Zissel GOLUB (nee COHEN). All the
spellings are as on the
naturalisation papers.

Morris and Fanny took a trip to New York in 1948/9
to visit her sister and
brother-in-law. I believe they were Sarah and Ben
SHAPIRO, who had a son
Alex. I don't know when they emigrated to the US or
where they lived there though
I suspect it was somewhere in New York state.

I'd appreciate any information re: the family and
locality.

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your
own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the
researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen
that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a
win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project.
You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our
Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by
Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages
with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections,
there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov
Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian
communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the
JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can
purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only
through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall
flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting
operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall
you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen
benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based
service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it
first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's
expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well
as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these
communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts
to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking
for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this
book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your
children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests,
please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just
select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You
will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices.
If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book
cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40%
discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many
copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted
price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen
Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software,
CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and
you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
<http://www.JewishGenMall.Org>www.jewishgenmall.org
will truly be a win/win
situation!

P.S. Don't lose out! Don't be distracted by the
Passover holiday!

"Litvak" book will
last only until midnight April 30th and cannot be
offered again after
publication.

Klein (and variants of this surname) #ciechanow #poland

siroli@...
 

Hello fellow Ciechanow researchers

My Ciechanow ancestors arrived in London in the early 1890s and used the surname
KLEIN. I'm almost 100% certain they were natives of Ciechanow as I have many
records >from the UK and Australia in which they indicated that this was their home
town. I've searched the JRI-Poland for Kleins in Ciechanow in the period 1860-1880
and nearby areas without any success, but I've noticed that the surname
KLEIN/KLEJN/KLAJN on its own does not appear very frequently in Ciechanow,
whereas names such as KLEJNIUD, KLEJNMAN, KLEINIEC, KLEJNOD,
KLAJNHAUS, etc are well represented.

I was wondering if anyone has examples of their Ciechanow ancestors shortening their
longer Klein*** surnames to Klein?

Regards
Simon

SUSSNA, PRZYTYCKE #general

Shelley <skybluepink42@...>
 

First, a short story.

I was sitting in the lobby of the synagogue in Trenton (NJ) Congregation
Brothers of Israel waiting for my daughter's function to end.
I put on my distance glasses in preparation for the drive home and stare at
the wall of memorial plaques in front of me and notice the name PRZYTYCKE
listed prominently. I perk up as this is the surname of my grandfather
Samuel JACOBS when the family lived in Wyszkow, Poland prior to emigration
to the United States. My immediate family settled in the Jersey City (NJ)
area.

So the plaque reads:

The PRZYTYCKE Family
Warsaw, Poland
who perished in the Holocaust

Chaim Esther
Faiga Gittel
Mordechai Shmuel
Ethel Golde Elyeh
by Minnie SUSSNA

Minnie (I ascertain by reading other plaques) died some time ago (July 23,
1986) and is the daughter of Chaim. Yad Vashem does not record any data
(that I can see) on the PRZYTYCKE family but I am looking into a potential
family relationship with mine.

So I am attempting to locate descendents of Louis & Minne SUSSNA who might
give me some insight into the PRZYTYCKE family. At this time I am
tentatively positing a *relationship* with my own PRZETYCKI >from Wyszkow
due to the proximity of the Warsaw Ghetto to Wyszkow.

Does anyone have any further suggestions on research? Please reply offlist.

Thanks.

A JewishGen win/win project #france

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices. If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40% discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting

situation!
