WACHADLO #poland

Marie Wohadlo <mwohadlo@...>
 

I am hoping someone out there might offer some advice on how I might be
information on anyone with the surname WACHADLO (with the Polish hooked-A
and barred-L), including those >from Bialystok. At this url:
http://www.zchor.org/bialystok/last_prisoners.htm

There, I found two people, MATA and SIPA , with one variation on the
spelling (WAHADLO). They were transferred >from Bialystok prison to Stutthof
on November 21, 1943. Any and all suggestions are welcome. I have located
records on other WACHADLOs in and around Pustkow, Galicia in the 18th-19th
centuries, and a current internet search shows at least one Wachadlo today
in or around Bialystok -- a soccer player, I believe. (I know very little
Polish.) If someone who knows Polish might consider communicating with that
person on my behalf, I would be grateful. Thank you.

I just joined this list and have some questions.

Records for an ancestor, Jacob BRAUN, state that he emigrated >from
Warsaw-Russia in the 1860s. Would information about him be in the
JRI-Poland site or in Russian records? And -- would he actually be
likely to have come >from Warsaw, Russia or some small surrounding town?

The Bergman cousins in Show Biz #yiddish

Fine Family <mafine@...>
 

Hi,
In my Grandmother's family there were three cousins in show business.
My grandparents Phil and Ann BRAE were on radio during the 20's and
early 30's. Their first cousin Teddy BERGMAN (later changed to Alan
REED) was on vaudeville, and eventually became famous as the voice of
Fred Flintstone. A third cousin, Harry BLITZER (later changed to GREEN)
was fairly successful in movies and eventually moved to London where he
passed away in May 1958. All three were grandchildren of my
gggrandparents Israel and Chaya Bergman who came to NY in 1890 with
their children >from eastern Galicia. Is anyone out there familiar with
these people or their careers or possibly related?

Re: Landsmanschaft Mystery #latvia

Dear George

Thanks for the comments. The data >from the archives says Riga,
but on the other hand there are two other possiblities that I
have come up with.

One is that the Latvian archives had no history regarding my
great-grandmother and maybe she came >from there, The other is
that my grandfather and two brothers and two sisters moved to
Glasgow around 1891. They then came to the US in 1904 - 1906.
One sister married a man in Glasgow named Solomon MENDELSON.
This sister tragically died at the age of 35 shortly after they
all came to NY and either Solomon was >from Sveksna or he had
some affiliation with the Burial Society.

It's just a guess at this point.

Dear Sharon,
The only way we could hep you is if you write us the names of the persons
you are researching, the name of the place in Hungary (city, town, village)
and the approximate dates they lived there. Without at least some of these
data no research can be done.
Good luck in your research

Subject: [h-sig] ADLER - Scotland/Hungary


Hello JewishGenners,

I have just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy for approximately
4 months. I consider myself a novice.

I live in (urban) Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. My native language is
English and I also know Afrikaans.

I have identified the names, birth and death dates of my grandparents and
the birth country of my great grandparents.

My primary research goals are to find out where in Hungary
(megye/county/province) my great grandparents originated from. I am aware
that Hungarian research is a challenge because the empire was so large and
geographically diverse. Because of the break-up of the empire, they could
actually be >from towns that are now Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania,
Serbia, Croatia or Slovenia.

My grandfather, Joseph ADLER was born in Gorbals, Scotland in 1902. He had
six siblings - Jeanie (born 1894), Rebecca (1897), Annie (1899), Morris
(1904), Louis (1906) and Golda (1908). Golda died at age six in 1914. Most
Glasgow Jews were born in that city, although nearly all had immigrant
parents.

I am currently working with Harvey KAPLAN - Director of the Scottish Jewish
Archives to find out more about Joseph's siblings and their families in an
attempt to increase the research and network.

Joseph was a pilot in the RAF during WW2 and he was assigned to (the then)
South West Africa where he met and married my grandmother Nellie ADAMS in
1943. They had 3 children - Joseph Charles ADLER (my father- deceased in
1992), Lionel ADLER and Edna ADLER. It is believed that this was my
grandfather's second marriage as he was 41 years at the time of his marriage
to Nellie. It is possible that he was married before in England?

Joseph died in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa in 1972 and is buried at the
Mountain Rise Cemetery.

My grandfather's parents were Myer ADLER and Sarah PASS. They were married
on the 21st November 1893 at the synagogue, 29 Main Street Glasgow. Myer was
24 years old (born 1869) and Sarah was 23 (1870). There are no birth or
death records for Myer or Sarah in Scotland or the UK. According to the 1901
UK census, Myer and Sarah were recorded as originating >from Hungary but
where specifically, is unknown.

Myer's father was also a Joseph ADLER (deceased in 1893, when my ggparents
married). His wife was Fanny (m.s. unclear). No records exist in Scotland/UK
for Joseph or Fanny.

Sarah's father was John PASS (butcher) and her mother was Annie (m.s.
FLORE). No records exist in Scotland/UK for John or Annie.

I realise that I am looking for a needle in a haystack but should anybody be
able to assist in anyway, I will be most grateful.
