Occupation: Bridge Builder #galicia

KLOOGWEIN@...
 

Dear Galitzianers;

I recently learned that my great grandfather, WIGDOR KLUGMANN, of
Monasterzyska (near Buczacz) was a bridge builder sometime between 1875-1917. He must
have worked for the local or regional government or perhaps for the railroad.
(Monasterzyska was on the Stanislawow-Czortkow railroad line). Is there any
way to find out more about this type of work in Galicia or about him, based on
his occupation? Does anyone else have a Galician relative with a similar
occupation?

Lviv Cemeteries #galicia

Errol Schneegurt
 

While I was searching the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies - Cemetery project - they write about 2 books (below) that relate to
the cemeteries in the city of Lviv.
Has anyone read these books or have seen what information they contain?

BOOK: Matsevot kodesh vezikhron tsadikim (Holy graves and memorials to the
Just), by G. Suchestov. New York, 1993. 4 volumes in 1 volume (Reprint of G.
Hirtz books, Lvov 1863-1897. Hebrew. S88A2184. Notes: see G. Hirtz books S38A847
and R70A5484.


BOOK: Sefer matsevet kodesh. po ba'ir L'vov (Book of holy graves in the
city of L'vov), by G. Suchestov. Ashdod, 1996. 1 volume, Hebrew. S2 96A5718.

Given Name Boruch #galicia

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

I have a death certificate for a William JOACHIM, died Brooklyn, New York in
1910. Based on his age at death, 60 years, and his parents' names, I am
able to pinpoint him as a Boruch JACHIMOWITZ found in the Rzeszow, Poland
(Galicia, Austro-Hungarian Empire) births index on-line at JRI-Poland.

Can anyone tell me if William was a name adopted by men born Boruch in that
part of the world, in the time frame involved?

As always, I checked Professor Esterson's given names database and did not
locate the confirmation for which I am looking.

Many thanks to all,

Sternlicht family from Brzesko and Bochnia,Galicia-JGFF #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Galicianers,
Through my digging into Brzesko surnames found out
that there was a Sternlicht family in Brzesko until
1930-33 when they left to Palestine.The
weirdest????thing is that I didn't find them in any of
the data bases I checked ,and I checked a lot.My
conclusion:If the family didn't have a business,didnt
immigrate to the USA and wasn't in Poland during the
Holocaust,there are lower chances to track them
down.Checked also JGFF-no one is looking for
Sternlicht >from Brzesko.However,there is a back door
way,The Landsmanschafts and organizations of survivors
who would have lists of families which originate from
those places.
I am in contact with the Sternlichts in Israel.
Found one Sternlicht in Bochnia(nearby Brzesko) on
www.shoreshim.org(yes,shoreshim and not shorashim).

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I have just been advised of the existence of Marriage registers for Lezajsk,
Poland for the period 1899-1901. As the Rzeszow PSA Coordinator, I am
seeking an individual to step forward to act as the Town Leader for this
indexing project.

Please contact me directly to discuss the responsibilities of the volunteer
position as well as the specifics of the project.

Your involvement is greatly appreciated by me and your fellow researchers
and the addition of the indices to the JRI-Poland database will serve as a
memorial in perpetuity.

Alexander GOLDBERG, Warsaw attorney #warsaw #poland

George Mason <gmason3815@...>
 

I am looking for any information about my great uncle, Alexander "Sasha"
GOLDBERG. He was an attorney/solicitor specializing in civil law in Warsaw
in the 1920s and 1930s. He lived and had his office at #3 Poznanska Street.
He was married to Sonia/Sophie Nathanson. I am told they died during the
siege of Warsaw in September 1939. Can anyone tell me how I might go about
finding a picture of him or a pre-war picture of #3 Poznanska Street? Does
anyone have anything like a Who's Who of pre-war Warsaw solicitors book with
any details on him? Also, my father, Percy MOZESON, lived at #29 Ogordowa
Street. Are there any pre-war pictures available of this building? Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Map of Warsaw 1939 #warsaw #poland

Gary Mokotoff <mokotoff@...>
 

About 20 years ago I acquired a "book" titled "Warsaw As It Was". It
consists primarily of a 30"x33" map of Warsaw as of 1939, a color map of
Warsaw in 1945 depicting the devastation of the city and an index to the
street names of 1939. At that time I reduced the central portion of 1939 map
to standard sized (8.5x11) paper. I just scanned it and placed it on the web
at http://www.avotaynu.com/warsaw1939.jpg. You can download it to your
computer
by right-clicking the image and saving the picture. It may take a while if
you
still use a dialup modem. To provide the detail
required to read street names, it is 1.9MB in size.

The area covered is roughly west beyond the Jewish cemetery, north to the
Umschlagplatz where the Jews were deported to Treblinka, east to the Wisla
river and south to (but not including) the Mokotow district. The actual
map covers a much larger area.

Shtetl Research Project #belarus

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

Dear Ze'ev and all Shtetl Researchers

It is not the intention of the Shtetl Research Project to have a
central repository of family names. There are many of those on JewishGen,
especially the JGFF. We do not intend to compete and distract our focus,
which is research.

It is important that the Shtetl Leaders maintain and update a spreadsheet
that I sent to each of them with the names of the researchers for their
group. Once a month, on or about the 15th, I expect to receive the updated
spreadsheet >from each Shtetl Leader. I will be communicating this to the
leaders in an email next week. There is no reason why the shtetl leaders
could not circulate this spreadsheet to their Research Group Members, if all
agree. Alternatively, the Research Group may want to have a web site where
they can publisht the names of the members and their research surnames, if
they wish to.

The purpose of the Shtetl Research Project (formerly BOF) is to identify
data collections in the various Archives for a particular shtetl, have that
data extracted and formatted onto a standard Excel format. This data will
then be included in the All Belarus Database.

Marlene Bishow

When anything happens with the BOF of the district -

Dear Rom-sigs, perusing the web I came across the diary of a person who
made a bicycle tour in Romania, in 1997, and I thought it could be of
interest for many of us to read it.


Go to http://huizen.dds.nl/~jeroenvm/romdiary.htm
and
http://www.jeroenvm.dds.nl/romindex.htm
read here his conversation with the Romanian peasant! And enjoy it.

"We Remember Jewish Wyszków" website and Yizkor book, "Sefer Wyszków" #warsaw #poland

Earlier this year, I discovered that some of the photos on the "We=20
Remember
Jewish Wyszk=F3w" web page, part of Ada Holtzman's extensive "We =
Remember"
website, also appear in "Sefer Wyszk=F3w," the Yizkor Book of Wyszk=F3w=20=

(edited by
David Shtokfish). "Sefer" was published in Israel (Tel Aviv) in 1964,
by the Association of Former Residents of Wishkow in Israel and
Abroad. The book is in Yiddish and Hebrew.

Pages 41-43 of "Sefer," which are in Yiddish, were written by Israel=20
Granat and
contain two photos ("A" and "J") that appear on the "We Remember Jewish=20=

Wyszk=F3w"
website. My cousin, Abraham Holland, graciously volunteered to=20
translate the
pages into English.

So, please visit "We Remember Jewish Wyszk=F3w":

www.zchor.org/wyszkow/wyszkow.htm


The actual translation is a separate html document which has a link on
the "We Remember Jewish Wyszk=F3w" website:
