Strange forename #general

HPOLLINS@...
 

According to an entry in his 'Humble Memorial' ('To the Right Honourable,
His Majesty's Secretary of State for the Home Office') to become a
naturalised British subject, my uncle wrote his father's forename as
Scyolol. The handwriting is very clear and unambiguous (or perhaps the
second 'o' might be 's'.) I have never heard of that name before and have
tried to disentangle it, eg, perhaps it was Srol. But that is not very
convincing. It has been suggested to me that the first syllable could be
pronounce 'Sh' and the name might have been Polish. Any ideas?

Does anyone have any information or knowledge of KAMMs living in the areas
of Langendorf(Wielowies), Lublinitz(Lubliniec), Beuthen(Byton)? My
grandfather's name was Seigfried Kamm born Lublinitz 1876 and was
transported to Terezin in 1942 after living in Lauban. I believe he had
a number of siblings? His father was named Yosef Kamm born in Langendorf,
but lived in Lublinitz. We are also interested in hearing >from anyone with
knowledge of the Jewish community of Gorlitz in Germany or Tichauers living
in the Beuthen area and Emil Lewin who was a shopkeeper in Breslau in the
1920s/30s? Many Thanks

Tracing Jewish Ancestry in the South #general

clea <clea@...>
 

In the process of tracing my grandparents I have uncovered several sources I
wanted to share for those tracing their Jewish heritage in Georgia. I was
totally lost when I started and did not know how influential the Jewish
settlers had been in Savannah where a group of 42 people had first settled
in 1733. There were also Jewish populations in Brunswick and other southern
coastal cities.

The Live Oak Public Library in Savannah has newspapers dating back to the
18th century. They are partially indexed on line but they have a much larger
collection than what is indexed there so don't assume they have nothing if
you do not find it online. I am getting several obituaries >from them. They
also have some cemetery records that were collected by the WPA in 1938. They
give death, burial, cemetery lot#, age, and tell where the person was born.
Additional resources are accessible at the library. See their History and
Genealogy dept.

http://www.liveoakpl.org/genealogy.htm

There are also Jewish archives located in the Georgia History Museum in
Savannah. They will do research look-ups for you.

http://www.georgiahistory.com/sja.htm

There is also a Jewish archive in Atlanta - the Bremen.

http://www.thebreman.org/index.htm

And a Georgia Jewish genealogy group. I was able to find a list of
cemeteries which were either Jewish or had Jewish sections at their website
for many cities in Georgia.

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgsg/

I have not located ship lists for the Georgia ports yet. If anyone knows
where to look I would appreciate your sharing.
