Neinshtot Shervink #general

I found a note that a family member was >from Neinshtot Shervink .

There's no hit on Jewish Gen or Google for those words spelled that way.

I've no idea where the note came >from or what that might mean. (The
note was connected to the (Americanized) Paine family.

Help, please.

Will the *real* Brody please stand up??? #general

Meyer Denn
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I am looking for some advice regarding a village, town or city in Galicia
or Poland proper that would have been referred to in Yiddish as "Brod."

Here is the back story. My paternal grandfather's line continues to be
very elusive. When I was a child, my grandfather used to tell me that his
father was not born in Korczyna (Galicia), the town in which my
grandfather grew up. He used to say that his father was >from a town in
"deep Poland" called Brod. He seemed to indicate that this "Brod" was
actually the Galician city of Brody.

After my grandfather's death in 1981, I inherited his copy of the Yizkor
Book >from Korczyna. In it there was a story about his father in which
the text confirmed my grandfather's statement that his father was indeed
from a place called Brod. The translation reads like this: "They called
him Reb Chaim'l Broder (his family name was actually Denn, but he came
originally >from Brod."

In addition to the fact that Brody is quite distant >from Korczyna for
movement around 1850, I have been researching documents and literature
about Brody and have never come up with a family name Denn or Den living
in Brody. This leads me to believe that it is more likely that my great-
grandfather Chaim Denn actually >from another town or village known as
"Brod."

Can anyone suggest other alternatives for towns or cities in Galicia that
might have been referred to as Brod in Yiddish. Chaim's mother was >from
the village of Baligrod, just south of Lesko, not too far >from Korczyna
to the east.

Any thoughts >from well-versed Galicianer researchers will be greatly
appreciated.

Sincerely,

Meyer Denn

Seeking information on Anna KATZ - Brooklyn, NY #galicia

Joyce Eastman
 

I am hoping that someone can provide more information regarding Anna
WILDER who was married to Nesanel KATZ and resided in Brooklyn, NY.
She was born in Brody, Poland in 1871 and died on November 15, 1936 in
Brooklyn, NY. According to her burial record in JewishGen's JOWBR, her
parents were Joseph HONIG and Charlotte WILDER, which could be the
"anglicized" names of Abraham Joseph HONIG and Scheindel WILDER (my
paternal great-grandparents). This burial record also states that her
Hebrew name was: "Chana Glikel bat Abraham Joseph". This burial record
was reported by her daughter Hesie FUSFELD. I have searched for a ship
manifest showing the passage for Anna KATZ or Nesanel KATZ, as well as
naturalization certificates and census records, but have not been able to
locate any of these documents in order to find out more information.

The reason I am even more intrigued by this information is that my
paternal uncle stated in his request for immigration in Vienna, Austria that
he had family in the US. One of the people he mentioned was: Anna
KATZ (his aunt) living at 133 East 94th Street, in Brooklyn, NY. This
request was made in May 1938, and he would not have known that Anna
KATZ had died in 1936.

If anyone has more information to share about Anna KATZ and her family,
please contact me privately.
