Re: Naming a son after a brother? #general

She wouldn't. Most likely she named the son after the same grandfather the
brother was named after - or another Moses on the other side of the family.

MAHLER and MOCKIN born Pieszczaniki, Poland (near Bialystok) #general

Mark Halpern
 

My grandmother, Chana GERSZOWICZ, was born in Pieszczaniki (coordinates
5308, 2334; 17 miles east of Bialystok) in 1884. Apparently her family
was living there at the time due to her father managing or working at a
textile plant near this town.

I have been searching for information about this town and its Jewish
residents for nearly 10 years and have not found anything until now.

Recently, I was using the Yad Vashem Central Database of Shoah Victim's
Names and, on a whim, searched for "Location = Pieszczaniki."
Unbelievably, two Shoah Victim names appeared. If anyone knows of either
of these people or any ideas for further research, please contact me
privately.

1. Dawid Berisch MAHLER, born 28 December 1886 in Pieszczaniki. Died 03
September 1943 in Auschwitz. Source of data was "In Memoriam -
Nedelandse Oorlogsgravenstichting (Dutch War Victims Authority)

2. Malka MOCKIN/MOTZKIN, born 1897 in Pieszczaniki, wife of Avraham,
living in Michalowo before the War. Died in Bialystok in 1942. Source of
data was Page of Testimony submitted by AREZ, sister-in-law on 26 March
1957.

Thanks for your help,

Mark Halpern

Re: Bukovina - district or village(s)/shtetls #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Just to add to the confusion there were some villages in the crownland of
Galicia that were called Bukowina (about 10 of them). That is also the
precise spelling of the name of the Austrian Province. "Bukovina" (with a
"V" instead of a "W") is an anglicization of the spelling.

Bukovina was the easternmost "crownland" (a province or district

Today it is split between a portion of western Ukraine and northern
Romania. During Austrian times (pre-WWI), it became a prominent
center of Jewish and Yiddish culture.

Los Angeles Jewish newspaper, 1970-1980's #general

Monica Talmor
 

I have located death notices for a relative and his wife in the LA Times
(1978 and 1982), but the only information given was the name of the
mortuary. I have contacted them by e-mail and I'm assuming that they will be
able to tell the the exact location of the graves, but probably not a
contact name. (I know they would probably forward a letter). What Jewish
newspaper in LA might have had an actual obituary? I am looking for the
children of this family, obviously, if there are any.

Re: Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

anitac47@...
 

Further to Peter's reply with regard to Zavod and Kol...

My NADWORNY name is beyond uncommon among Jews. My family came >from
Odessa. All the non-Jews with the name come >from Poland or northern
Ukraine as do the very few other Jewish families with the name
(it's an occupational title meaning someone who worked on or managed
an estate).

I have always reasoned that the family started off in Poland and
emigrated to Odessa. But then again as Jews commonly were hired to
manage Polish nobles' estates my family could be independent of others
Jewish families with the name. I think you have to follow all
possibilities. The name also refers to "court" like court chancellor
in Russia. But often online presence of the name is on Polish sites
discussing fantasy sci-fi books!

And family mythology (stories everyone insists are true but no one
can prove)can send you off on wild goose chases.My relatives didn't
know about non-Jewish NADWORNYs back in the day--and somehow the story
got to circulating in my family that my gf had been a philanderer
and had children with a Catholic woman but left her and so there was
a Catholic branch of the family!! Not true but we all believed it
(I actually met a member of that Catholic family who had converted
to Judaism! Life is interesting).
