Searching in Brooklyn Update #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Thank you to all the people who tried to help me find the streets in
Brooklyn that came to a point. I was lucky enough to connect with a
researcher who had information on the family who lived in the house on that
street. Although I have not yet identified the street I do have the family
information, which was the ultimate goal. So many people took the time to
assist. What a wonderful group of people on this list!

FRAENKEL-TEOMIM in Buczacz #rabbinic

Cary Aufseeser <aufsee@...>
 

I have a friend whose family were FRAENKELs >from Buchach, Galicia
now Buczacz in the Ukraine. He does not know where his FRAENKEL
family came >from before they settled in Buczacz. I believe his
FRAENKEL family is descended >from the rabbinical TEOMIM-FRAENKEL
family who lived in Prague in the 16th century.

Does anyone have any knowledge of FRAENKELs who settled in Buczacz?
Were they descendants of this rabbinical family, who dropped the
TEOMIM surname?

The name combination "Moshe Aharon" ("Mojzses Aron") in #general

Shlomo Katz <SKATZ@...>
 

The name combination "Moshe Aharon" ("Mojzses Aron") seems to have
been extremely common in the portion of Galicia around Tarnobrzeg/Dzikow.
Does anyone know of a reason for this, for example, a rabbi or
chassidic rebbe by that name in that region? (The alternative, which
is tantalizing, is that they all had a common ancestor.)

Dear Thomas and genners,

In Italy copies of birth, matrimony and death certificates
can be obtained >from local town halls. The town halls archives hold
documents since the end of 19th century to nowdays.
There are few access restrictions due to privacy laws.
Passport applications had to be addressed to local Questura or
Prefettura (Police headquarters, Prefecture) but there are few
chance to receive an answer >from their archives, furthermore remember
that in 1938 in Italy were promulgate racist laws.

Dear Jenners --
My uncle, Walter Frenkel, was married in Milan, Italy in
1935. I would like to obtain a copy of a marriage record or a

left Milan. So my questions are: where can I obtain copies of

Could those with a knowledge in Yiddish translation help out on four
more of my family letters? They are in ViewMate, VM5551 to VM5554. The
last two are front and back of the same letter. All were written about
the 1920s and if these are like the previous, there will be problems
with handwriting and idiomatic / dialectal expressions. Please reply to
me privately and be sure to mention which file you are refering to.
Thanks for the great work being done by translators.

Stockholm 1948 #lithuania

Kasman <family@...>
 

I am posting 2 photos which will be of interest to those, or relatives of
those, who lived in Sweden post-WWII.

The photos were taken at the wedding of Yitzchak Kowalski in July 1948 in
Stockholm. I don't know his wife's name, but my mother's notes indicate
that Mr. Kowalski had a twin sister. Also, notes on back of the large-group
photo indicate that the whole Jewish community of Stockholm was at the
wedding.

My late mother, then Jennie Golomb, had been born in Vilna; following the
War years, she lived in Stockholm >from 1947 to 1949 when she came to live in
Canada.

Please let me know if you know the Kowalskis or any other wedding guest(s)!

The pictures are files VM5547 & 5548.

Warsaw/Lomza/Pultusk - KMIOTEK / SCHENDEROWITZ / EMBER #poland

Elise
 

All,

I'm researching KMIOTEK >from the Warsaw/Lomza area. They may have been
from Pultusk, or they may have been >from another nearby town. I've
checked as many U.S. records as I can find for this family in an effort to
pinpoint the exact location -- census records, WWI and WWII draft
registration cards, naturalization records, immigration records, vital
records, etc. The main problem is that they immigrated and were
naturalized pre-1900, so their immigration and nat. records provide little
detail. Plus, they changed their surname to FRIEDMAN upon immigration,
which, being such a common name, has made it difficult to find U.S.
records for several of the family members.

KMIOTEK is in the JRI-Poland database, but the records there so far don't
match the family that I'm looking for (I've already taken name variations
between Yiddish/Hebrew/Polish and English into consideration). They are
most likely another branch of my family and I have ordered a couple of
them already, but I'm not prepared to order the rest yet. My first
priority is to find records for the KMIOTEK family that is directly
related to me. My gggf was Schmuel Wolf KMIOTEK/FRIEDMAN (1850-1920). He
had a brother, Max or Marx, who changed his surname >from KMIOTEK to LEWIS
upon immigration to the U.S and supposedly died prior to 1900. Max's
descendants, except for his oldest son Morris who kept the name (spelled
as KIMYATIK), adopted the surname LEWIS as well.

Schmuel's wife was Sura Ruchel SCHENDEROWITZ (SANDERSON on some U.S.
records). According to her 1914 U.S. death certificate, her parents were
Aaron SCHENDEROWITZ and Braine EMBER.

I have already searched JewishGen's JGFF and have entered these names into
JGFF myself.

My main purpose in writing to this list is to find out if there are any
Warsaw/Lomza area indexing projects that contain KMIOTEK records, but are
not yet online? If you're a town leader for a Warsaw/Lomza area project,
would you please check your surname list and let me know? I'm willing to
donate to an indexing project if I think there's a good chance that it
contains my family's records.

Thanks!
