Date   

Photos, etc. needed of Pre-WWII Wyszkow (on Bug River) #general

Howard Orenstein
 

ATTN: Wyszkow Researchers

I am trying to create a "virtual" Wyszkow to show everyone what the
town looked like prior to WWII. Most of the Jewish inhabitants of the
town lived within a small radius of the center of town. The market,
the synagogues, the yeshiva/school were within easy walking distance
of each other. We know >from the 1929 business directory the street
names (and Rynek) where merchants had their shops. I think it would
be great to show where, for example, Chaim Tyk's bakery was located on
Pultuska Street, where Bromberg the butcher was located on
Kosciuszki, where Bais Yakov School for Girls was located.
I request photos that depict buildings, streets, businesses, the market
(Rynek), etc., the contents of which, if possible, you can identify.
If you cannot identify anything, do not worry. I'll try to get
someone to identify the contents. If you have an old map(s) of
Wyszkow with the town plan, that is something in which I am interested.
Please scan and email me such photos, etc., but if you would rather
send the items by regular mail, do so. If you decide to use regular
mail delivery, or UPS, etc., I will return everything that you send me
by the same carrier you use. If you use regular post, and you want to
make sure that it reaches me, then request confirmation of delivery, or
send it by certified mail. The little extra it costs is worth not having
to worry. I have found that you can save a little money upfront at
USPS (Postal service) by not requesting a return receipt; rather, there
is a tracking number that you can use online to make sure
that the item was delivered and the date of delivery.

I look forward to hearing >from you.

Re: Yahrzeit card collection (of the Bialystoker Center in New York City. #poland

Bialystoker
 

Lillian:

The cards were the information used by the Bialystoker Center to notify
the loved ones of the deceased of an upcoming Yahrzeit date. This
service was only provided to families who purchased a Yahrzeit plaque,
like the ones you see in your Synagogue. Anyone could have purchased a
Yahrzeit plaque for their loved one. Some were for Bialystokers who were
never residents of the home. Some were probably for residents of the
home who were not Bialystokers. Once the cards are indexed, you will
know.

Does that collection include cards which may have been filled out by
residents of the Bialystoker Home in lower Manhattan. My cousin's great
grandfather, Benjamin Salomon, born in Kalvaria, arrived in NYC prior to
1880 and lived the rest of his life on the lower East Side, his last
years were spent living in the Bialystoker Home. I called the home some
time ago and they said that they had no early (1930's/40's) records.

Alan,

The question of how the Jews of Eastern Europe got German names and when is
very complicated and controversial. If you would write to me privately, I will
be glad to respond with some of the more common theories and which I think are
correct.

If the group as a whole wants me to expound on the subject, I will be glad to
do so.
