REICHENBACH - where they came from? #poland

Ron Herrmann <ron_herrmann@...>
 

Recently I located distant relatives of my REICHENBACH
family branch, originally of Siedlce/Shadlitz, Poland.

Now we are debating again about the source of this
last name.

I am sure that the REICHENBACHs are named after the
place they came >from - no Jew will "choose" the name
REICHENBACH, "Rich Brook", as his last name...

There are 4 places in the world called Reichenbach:
- Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland
- Reichenbach city in Germany (Reichenbach im
Vogtland) - central Germany
- Reichenbach near Elblag in north Poland (near
Gdansk)
- Reichenbach near Walbrzych, near Wroclaw, in
southern most part of Poland, close to the Czech
Republic

Most probable is that my family is >from one of the 2
Polish towns listed above.

Question: any records of Jews living in those
Reichenbach villages/towns?

MODERATOR'S NOTE: If you search the JRI-Poland database at
www.jri-poland.org for Reichenbach, specifying a search for
Town -- Exact Spelling, you will see several indices of
Jewish records in which the town of Reichenbach is mentioned.

Marriage record - indication that parent is deceased?? #poland

Stan Zeidenberg
 

Is it always or almost always the case in a marriage record, that if a parent
of a bride or groom is deceased at the time of the marriage, that this is so
indicated in the document? The record in question in this case is an 1881
Ciechanow marriage record written in Russian.

Przedborz (near Piotrkow Trybunalski, Radomsko, and Kielce) #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

My great grandparents were married in Przedborz (Berek TAELMAN and Malka
JURKIEWICZ). So, naturally, I am very interested in Przedborz.

The town of Przedborz is centered among the towns Piotrkow Trybunalski,
Radomsko, and Kielce.

As town leader for JRI-Poland's archive project that covers Przedborz, I am
pleased to tell you that JRI-Poland has recently finished indexing over 5000
birth, marriage, and death records, covering the years 1887-1901.

Should these records be of interest to you? To find out, please see a
complete surname list at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/przedborz_surn.htm

These Przedborz index records will be released on the JRI-Poland web site as
soon as fundraising is complete. But why wait?! Researchers making a
contribution of at least $100 will be eligible to receive the Excel file in
advance of public release.

The entire project requires $1300 of funding. So far, $218 has already been
raised. So we now need $1082.

1906 Bialystok pogrom #poland

Caryl Simon-Katler <csimon@...>
 

I am doing research on the June 1906 pogrom in Bialystok, which killed
at least 100 Jews and wounded approximately 200. I have read some
short pieces in various books and one summary on a Bialystok website,
but would very much like to obtain more details. I'm interested in
facts, descriptions and firsthand accounts by witnesses. There seems
to be an extraordinary amount of writing on the Kishinev pogrom three
years earlier, but very little on Bialystok. Can anyone steer me to
some good sources?

Thanks for your help.

Re: my "faceless" grandfather #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I am answering this message publicly because it might help others besides
Jeff. Remember, if you answer someone's question >from the DG and you think
it might benefit others, please respond to the SIG discussion group. This
is how we all learn.

Jeff did not say at what age his grandfather came to the US, so some of the
ideas for obtaining a photo of him may not be applicable.

If someone went to high school or college in the US, it might be good to
contact the high school and college libraries to get a copy of the photo
from a school yearbook.
If your grandfather did go to college in the US and belonged to a college
fraternity, they would have photos of fraternity members, since most
fraternities took yearly photos of their brothers.

If you know that your grandfather was a member of a synagogue or other
organization (Jewish or otherwise), you could contact them to see if there
is a photo of your grandfather in some organizational group photo, their
newsletters, etc.

If your grandfather ever had a US passport, his photo should be filed with
his passport application. I believe these are filed at the National
Archives in College Park, Maryland.

You might also want to check old newspaper files where your grandfather
resided. I did a search for my father on the New York Times automated
system (there is a fee to subscribe to this service or use a local public
library that has a subscription). I found a photo of my father with an
article about the fencing team results of a match between several New York
City high schools. The article was >from early 1930's.

Perhaps someone else can add to what I have written, although this really
does not have anything to do with Belarus.
